Hyundai confirms 2021 launch for Ioniq 5

Post by Rob » Sat Dec 12, 2020 9:44 pm

An "early 2021" reveal date for the model, which is then expected to be in showrooms by the middle of the year, is promised. Called the Ioniq 5, it's the first of three EVs set to fall under the Ioniq umbrella in the next four years.

The 2021 Ioniq 5 will be a compact crossover based on the radical 45 concept from last year’s Frankfurt motor show. New details of the car confirmed by Hyundai include three ‘extras’ it will launch with. The first is vehicle-to-load (V2L) technology - bidirectional charging that allows owners to use the car’s batteries to store energy and then discharge it back to the national grid, or the home, when it is required during peak demand times.

The second is fast-charging capability, although the Korean firm is yet to detail the exact charging speeds the car is capable of. The third is the car’s “soon-to-be-announced array of features”.

On 18 December the campaign “Be The First” started in Austria (www.Hyundai.at). 150 full spec IONIQ 5s “First Edition” will be delivered in July 2021.
The marketing proposition is Tesla-inspired with a binding deposit of 1000€.
