Hyundai Revises 2022 IONIQ 5 Lineup; more affordable, longer battery life

Hyundai Australia has confirmed new trim qualities for the all-electric IONIQ 5 for 2022, with new names for the base RWD (now called Dynamic) and the flagship AWD (now called Techniq).

The base rear-engine IONIQ 5 Dynamic features new 19-inch alloy wheels (replacing the 20-inch items) wrapped in Michelin Primacy 4 tires, helping to see the range increase from 451km to 481km. It retains its 72.6kWh battery which powers the rear motor which develops 160kW and 350Nm.

Additional features come in the form of a new augmented reality head-up display system and a pair of vehicle-to-charge ports that allow the IONIQ 5 to be a power source for devices and even homes (maximum output of 250 V/15 A, or 3.6 kW), while the panoramic sunroof was relegated as an option.

Other standard features include LED projector headlights, eco-leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, hands-free tailgate and a pair of 12.3-inch digital displays for the driver and infotainment system.

Opting for the range-topping AWD Techniq adds a twin-motor setup developing 155kW at the rear and 70kW at the front for a combined total of 225kW/605Nm, translating into a range of 430km.

The flagship retains 20-inch rubber-wrapped 255/45 Michelin Pilot Sport EV alloys, a set of ventilated front seats with a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and rear door sun visors.

Both feature an 800-volt architecture that can recharge the battery from 10 to 80 percent in just under 20 minutes.

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ is on sale now at the following prices (excluding road charges):

2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 Dynamique RWD: $69,900 (compared to $71,900 in 2021)
2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 Techniq RWD: $77,500 (instead of $75,900)
