The Hyundai IONIQ 5 just won the German Car of the Year, but we don't know the official range and efficiency figures of the electric vehicle. All we know is the size of the battery.
Also curious is the fact that there is a number for the short-range Ioniq 5, which we were told initially won't be offered in the US.
The literal headlining version of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a single-motor version with a 77.4-kWh battery with 225-horsepower output. This version has a range of 303 miles, making it the most efficient version of the car. It's rated at 114 mpg-e or 30 kWh per 100 miles. Adding a second motor for 320 horsepower and all-wheel drive brings the range to 256 miles. Efficiency drops to 98 mpg-e or 34 kWh per 100 miles.
Hyundai previously said this long-range version is the only one to make its way to the US, but the EPA is also assessing a smaller 58-kWh battery model with a single motor. Range is lowest at 220 miles, but efficiency is mid-range at 110 mpg-e or 31 kWh per 100 miles. No ratings have emerged with the dual motor and 58 kWh battery, which will be available in other markets.
The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 goes on sale in 2022 in 17 states, with greater availability following later.
