Hyundai Ioniq 5 In the test: Koreas Tesla -Killer reveals a huge weakness – tests

The Korean twin manufacturers Hyundai and Kia have been known for e-cars for years, which can even reach the water in terms of efficiency. Site tested the new Korean Stromer Hyundai Ioniq 5 and reveals why Hyundai still has not succeeded in detaching Tesla.

The Ioniq 5 is even an eye -catcher for hardened car fans. In the efahrer short test, the angular Korean harvests more looks and curious questions than a Porsche Taycan or Audi e-tron. This is due to its unusual design. Its proportions are reminiscent of a compact car, but the IONIQ 5 with a length of 4.6 meters and a width of 1.90 meters and 1.60 meters is more dimensioned as a compact SUV a la VW Tiguan.

The daytime running lights and taillights are designed like pixels – angular and frameless. Hyundai uses a so-called "Clamshell" engine hood on the IONIQ 5. It runs over the fenders to the wheel arches and stretches over the entire width of the vehicle like a mussel bowl. Together with flush -closed door handles, this should ensure lower gaps and more aerodynamics. The C-pillar is massive and inclined in the 45-degree angle. The IONIQ 5 also rolls on a 20-inch aerofelgen.

In the roof, Ioniq drivers have the choice between an optional panoramic pane and a solar roof, which should collect electricity for up to 2000 extra kilometers per year. Practical: The Ioniq 5 provides for a roof rack, allowed up to 80 kilograms of roof load and up to 1600 kilograms of trailer load. If the Ioniq 5 is as large as the Tiguan from the outside, it offers space at a combination level on the inside.

The external size of the Ioniq is also reflected in the interior. Up to 531 liters are available in the trunk, which are available at almost 1 when the rear seats fully folded down.600 liters enlarge. An additional storage space offers a compartment under the bonnet, the "Frunk", with up to 57 liters of capacity for smaller luggage or devices such as charging cables carried. Overall, the storage space is sufficiently dimensioned, but not huge for the vehicle class.

Thanks to the electric platform: more space than in the station wagon

In the front and in the back seat, two adults each have comfortable space. A flat floor ensures a modern, airy feeling of space. The processing is at the premium level and the selection of materials is consistently ecological-fate: the seats consist of linseed oil, the cushions made of renewable fibers such as organic sugar cane, wool, plant yarns or fibers recycled PET plastic bottles. Surfaces such as the dashboard, the switches, the steering wheel and the door panels are coated with a organic paint that is obtained from rapeseed and corn oil.

In addition, the IONIQ 5 has the vehicle-to-load function, with which the driver can supply any electrical devices such as notebooks, e-bikes or other e-cars with up to 230 volt change current while driving or standing.

Assistences & infotainment

The infotainment system consists of a tidy digital dashboard and a central lightscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On top of that, the IONIQ 5 should get a gigantic Augumented Reality Head-Up display. On request, it transforms the windshield into an oversized screen with a diagonal of 44 inches, on which the most important driving and vehicle information is projected directly into the driver’s field of vision.

The head-up display can be used very well in everyday life. There is a deduction for the complicated and unergonomic operation of the menu and the untidy digital dashboard. Android car only runs wire -tied and crashes regularly. Apple CarPlay works perfectly. The charging planning of the Ioniq 5 disappointed. If the driver controls a navigation goal outside the range of the IONIQ 5, the vehicle does not improve a sensible route with stopover on fast loaders, but rather slow public charging stations at the starting point of the route.

Hyundai’s own Blue-Link app is easy to set up and runs smoothly.

Nevertheless: With infotainment, the distance to Tesla and also the Germans is still clearly noticeable.

When it comes to driving assistance, Hyundai is developing significantly compared to older generations of vehicle and continues to move Tesla and the Germans. The cruise control with lane departure assistant, dead angle assistant and cross traffic warning makes everyday life with the large and somewhat confusing Ioniq 5, especially in the city.

The top engine tested by site consists of a rear engine and a front engine with a system output of 305 hp. Both together result in a torque of 605 nm. In connection with the 72.6 kWh battery, this variant accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds. The strong and clearly tail -heavy all -wheel drive makes the IONIQ 5 a real driving fun machine. Only the spongy, somewhat insensitive steering does not match it. All variants are sealed off at a top speed of 185 km/h.

Long-distance power-despite giant weakness

The Ioniq 5 in the KL have range is its biggest carver. On the highway at GPS-calibrated Tempo 130, the Ioniq 5 consumes around 30 kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers. This means that the Ioniq 5 on the highway in practice only comes around 260 kilometers. The high motorway consumption of the Ioniq 5 is primarily due to its size and poor wind slippery.

So the consumption on the country road falls on around 22 kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers. In the city, consumption of less than 20 kilowatt hours per 100 kilometers can be reached.

Disassemble the practice consumption of the Ioniq. Squilling cars such as the Tesla Model 3 or UR-ioniq are significantly more efficient with motorway customs around 20 kWh per 100 kilometers. The IONIQ reached the Efahrer motorway test (180-kilometer motorway round at GPS speed 130 km/h) consumption of less than 20 kWh per 100 kilometers.

The IONIQ 5 compensates for its weakness in efficiency on the highway with really strong charging capabilities. In practice, the IONIQ 5 reached a maximum of 222 kW on the speed charging station. The IONIQ 5 is completed by the charge from 10 to 80 percent of 800-volt fast loaders such as the widespread ionity charging stations along the German motorway in less than 20 minutes and keeps its quick charging promise in this way. At 80 percent battery level, the IONIQ still loads 112 kW and 90 percent still at almost 90 kW.

Despite its weakness in efficiency, the IONIQ 5 is fully long -distance thanks to these spectacular charging services.

Guarantee, prices & conclusion

When it comes to warranty, the Koreans block. Hyundai grants a whopping eight eight years of guarantee without a mileage and without additional costs. A guarantee of eight years to 160 applies to the high -voltage battery of the Hyundai Ioniq 5.000 kilometers.

The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is now at a sales price from 41.900 euros can be ordered and configured in Germany. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is fully eligible as part of the innovation premium of the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA). Together with the Hyundai manufacturer’s share, the purchase price is reduced by 9.570 euros, so an entry price of 32 for customers.330 euros. In the tested equipment, with the largest battery, all-wheel drive and 305 hp engine, the Ioniq 5 can be over 60.Screw in 000 euros.

The IONIQ 5 thus comes with Tesla Model Y, VW ID.4 and its derivatives like Audi Q4 or Skoda Enyaq in competition. In key discipline efficiency, the Ioniq 5 Tesla cannot reach the water, but in total a really exciting electric car, which should not only be used.

  1. Wow!!
    30 kWh at 130km/h, with EnBW/Hyundai tariff on the highway, does around € 15 to 100km. My petrol engine needs 5.7l at this speed, does € 9.69/100km at an hour’s current € 1.70/l, which I do not have to refuel at a rest area. The liter of great should be € 2.63!!!! Cost, then I am only with my petrol engine at the price that is due for the Hyundai on the highway for 100km!
