Hyundai hopes to hasten the shift to electric vehicles next year as the brand announced the upcoming launch and pricing of the Ioniq 5 electric vehicle in January 2023.

The Ioniq 5 was first previewed at this year’s Philippine International Motor Show. It boasts of a range between 350 to 580 kilometers, depending on the model. It’s clad in neo-retro styling and while it takes on a hatchback form is actually classified as a compact SUV.

When it arrives next year, Hyundai will offer it in a choice of two variants: the Standard Range and the Long Range models. Both variants have the same trim configuration: GLS and rear-wheel drive. The only difference is in the size of the battery. The GLS 2WD S (Standard Range) is priced at P 3.068 million, while the GLS 2WD L (Long Range) is priced at P 3.698 million.

The Standard Range makes 170-horsepower and 350-Nm and claims acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds. It’s powered by a 58-kWh battery that provides a maximum range of 352 kilometers between charges. It’s priced at P3.068 million.

The Long Range, on the other hand, produces 217-horsepower and 350-Nm of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.4 seconds. Its 72.6-kWh battery provides a range of 481 kilometers. It’s priced at P3.698 million.

The Ioniq 5 is offered in the following colors: Atlas White, Cyber Gray Metallic, Gravity Gold Matte, and Phantom Black Pearl.

For extra peace of mind, every Ioniq 5 is covered by a standard five-year/200,000-km warranty. The battery pack itself has an eight-year/160,000-km warranty coverage. Hyundai is also offering a five-year/75,000-km free preventive maintenance package.

Besides all these perks and reassurances, the Ioniq 5 is also number coding exempt, being a fully-electric, zero-emissions vehicle. It is also compatible with most of the charging stations already set up select fuel stations and malls. Hyundai also has fully compatible chargers at their dealerships.
