The 2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Will get A Greater Battery And Extra Buttons

At this level, it is onerous to search out anybody who does not at the very least respect the Hyundai Ioniq 5. With an eye catching Eighties retrofuture design that appears like virtually nothing else on the street and class-leading specs, this electrical crossover is a favourite for a lot of causes. Now it is about to get even higher for the 2025 mannequin 12 months with some upgraded specs we’re quite enthusiastic about—together with extra buttons.

On Sunday, Hyundai unveiled the up to date Ioniq 5 in South Korea, and whereas the automotive barely seems totally different on the skin—it has a barely up to date grille and entrance and rear bumpers—there are some severe enhancements in play right here.

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 has racked up awards, hit gross sales data and made the world discover how superior Korea’s EV sport is. As the electrical competitors heats up, it does not appear to be taking a breather.

I will begin by noting that that is the worldwide debut of the up to date Ioniq 5, and it is not clear but what modifications are coming to the U.S. market; the automotive Hyundai confirmed off continues to have digital facet mirrors, and American patrons have by no means been capable of get these, for instance. However we do anticipate some, if not all, of those modifications will come stateside ultimately. 

We’ll begin with the large information: the Ioniq 5 will get a much bigger battery. Beforehand, patrons may select from a customary 58.0-kWh battery pack or a bigger 77.4-kWh pack. Now Hyundai is providing an 84.0-kWh pack, implying in a information launch that this pack replaces the 77.4-kWh unit. Both means, meaning the highest Ioniq 5 will include extra vary. 

Not that the Ioniq 5 wanted a ton of assist in that division, after all. The present 2024 mannequin within the U.S. will get 220 miles of vary on the usual battery and 260 miles or 303 miles on the bigger one, relying on whether or not you spring for all- or rear-wheel-drive, respectively. In different phrases, if this bigger battery comes stateside, we may anticipate one thing like 330 miles in RWD kind—however we’ll look ahead to the official EPA estimates first.

Extra modifications lengthen contained in the cabin as nicely. There’s a brand new steering wheel with “interactive pixel lights,” and an entire new row of buttons on the middle console close to the cupholders that did not exist earlier than. The “Map” and “Navigation” buttons have been mixed into one, remedying a Hyundai-Kia quirk that has aggravated me for years, and the row of digital switches close to the infotainment system seems to have obtained some tweaks as nicely.

There are some essential tweaks on the software program facet as nicely. For one, the Ioniq 5 is now totally able to over-the-air (OTA) software program updates for all its main digital methods, whereas it was way more restricted in that division earlier than. Now, just like the Ioniq 6, it is OTA-capable for bug fixes, new options and extra. Hyundai has additionally added varied suspension tweaks to make the EV extra steady and agile, to not point out quieter—and the doorways and B-pillar elements have been bolstered for added security. 

Final however not least, Hyundai’s added an Ioniq 5 N Line trim right here, which will not provide you with fairly the explain-yourself-to-the-traffic-court-judge thrills that the Ioniq 5 gives, however will add a touch of wanted sporty vibes in and out.

Clients in Korea can order the up to date Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 5 N Line this month, whereas the remainder of us should look ahead to it to “progressively” roll out to “international markets all year long.”

Will you look ahead to the brand new one, or seize the distinctive offers that may be had on the present EV proper now? I will look ahead to the EPA vary on the brand new battery to make that decision, however one factor’s clear: the most effective within the enterprise simply obtained higher.
