According Carscoops, the new 77.4 kWh battery pack is expected to provide a longer cruising range. However, Hyundai is said to still be marketing a 58 kWh battery pack.
There is no detailed information about the total cruising range of the latest Ioniq 5 battery pack, but it is estimated that it is around 488 kilometers on a single charge.
In addition to a larger battery capacity, charging the battery is also said to be shorter than the model currently on the market. This is due to the new battery conditioning feature that functions while the vehicle is on the move.
This system works in conjunction with the navigation system and, when the driver asks to be directed to a charging station, it starts to regulate the battery temperature to ensure the battery is ready to charge as quickly as possible. The company claims this system also guarantees improved charging performance in cold weather.
In addition, European customers can now purchase the Ioniq 5 which is equipped with digital video showing the conditions behind it. This video replaces the center and side mirrors so the driver can see the situation behind them.
Meanwhile, digital side mirrors reduce air resistance and provide a clear view of what’s behind the driver even in inclement weather. This feature is already available to South Korean customers but this is the first time Hyundai has offered it in Europe.
Hyundai has also added a new Smart Frequency Damper (SFD) to improve front and rear suspension response and improve passenger comfort in the vehicle. The automaker is also providing customers with several new aesthetic options. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 2023 will be available to European customers in the second half of 2022. Pricing has not yet been announced.
