Total Car – Magazine – Hyundai Ioniq 5 upgraded with bigger battery

With this year’s model upgrade, Hyundai’s electric vehicle will also receive a larger 77.4 kWh battery pack already known from the Kia EV6. This replaces the previous 72.6 kWh and brings some increases in range and performance to the more expensive versions of the Ioniq 5.

With the new battery, the power of the rear-wheel drive version will increase from 217 to 228 hp, and the all-wheel drive version from 306 to 325 hp. This reduces the tenth acceleration time to 100 km / h: the new values ​​\u200b\u200b7.3 and 5.1 seconds, respectively. Of course, the range also increases somewhat: with the new battery, rear-wheel drive, the manufacturer gives 507 km according to the WLTP cycle, which is a significant improvement over the previous 481 km.

Replacing a larger battery isn’t the only change that could make the Ioniq 5 more attractive. A battery conditioning function will be available for the new version, which will attempt to theoretically return the battery to the ideal temperature before fast charging. This is activated when a fast charger is selected in the navigation system and begins to cool or heat the battery en route to improve the available charging speed.

Also new is that the model will be available on Hyundai for the first time with a camera mirror replacement: both the center mirror and the side mirrors will be replaced.
