Watt with 800 volts: The Hyundai Ioniq 5 in the Technology Check-check

When the Hyundai Ioniq 5 came on the market in June of this year, e-car fans were enthusiastic about the world. A compact electric car such that the Porsche TaryCan and the Audi E-Tron Quattro has an 800 volt electrical system, also quite favorable in the acquisition. According to configurator, it already exists at 41.900 euros. It is the first model of the new sub-brand Hyundai Ioniq. With numerous innovative details, the E-CUV according to the Korean new standards set new standards for the electromobiles lifestyle. This also includes an innovative manufacturing process as well as the use of sustainable materials. Electric car news.net has once again a close look at and threw under his sheet metal dress as well as the technology.

IoniQ combines the two English terms “ion” and “unique” and is tailored to the customer and environmentally friendly mobility solutions. The Ioniq 5 is the first model of Hyundai with the new, innovative “Electric Global Modular Platform” (E-GMP). The E-GMP enables unique vehicle propositions and an advanced interior. In addition to 800 volt technology for particularly fast charging operations, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 also offers the vehicle-to-load function that allows the driver to use the battery power inner and outside its vehicle. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 loads both 400 volts and 800 volt charging points. At a 350 kW fast load column, the high-voltage battery of the E-CUV according to the manufacturer invites you to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. A charging period of five minutes are sufficient for a range of 100 kilometers to WLTP standard. In addition, the Koeanische E-Car has the new “Vehicle-to-Load function”, short V2L. This allows any electrical appliances such as e-bikes, e-scooters or notebooks with up to 230 volts with up to 230 volts. The V2L function provides a capacity of up to 3.6 kilowatts. This is enough to operate, for example, a medium-sized air conditioning and a 55-inch TV for up to 24 hours.

To prepare the battery module of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, battery cells are stacked with high energy density and mounted in the new E-GMP. Later, the new electric drive unit (Power Electric System) from Hyundai takes over the place as a drive system of the IoniQ 5. It forms the heart of the electric vehicle and replaces the conventional powertrain typical of vehicles with internal combustion engines. The advantages of this recent generation drive system include the advanced integration of motor or generator and inverter in one unit and a standardized battery module. This system increase the range and raise the efficiency to a new level. Decisive in the development were also numerous wind tunnel and crash tests. The former is performed to improve the aerodynamics of the Hyundai Ioniq 5. The electric car is constructed so that in the case of a collision front and rear special collision frames absorb the impact energy and derive them outwardly around the battery pack.

At the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the customer can choose between multiple electric drive configurations. Depending on the power level (170, 217, 235 and 305 hp), up to two electric motors, rear or four-wheel drive as well as the battery options 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh are available. All variants offer a range of up to 481 kilometers (according to WLTP) and reach a maximum speed of 185 km / h. This value is of course dependent on many factors.

Sustainable guide in the interior

In the interior, Hyundai preferably uses environmentally friendly materials – from sitting over the headliner to the door panels and armrests. So the seats are covered with a leather, which was dyed and treated with vegetable oil extracts from flaxseed. Further upholstery consists of textiles made from sustainable fibers such as organic sugar cane, wool and yarns on plant base. Hyundai also sets fabrics woven from fibers recycled PET plastic bottles. Surfaces such as the dashboard, the switches, the steering wheel and the door panels are coated with a polyurethane biosack, which is obtained from RAPS and corn oil. In addition, floor mats are used, which consist of Econyl – a material that produces the marine protection organization Healthy Seas together with its recycled fishnets and other collected waste from the oceans. Since the beginning of 2021, Hyundai and Healthy Seas have been cooperating to raise awareness of pollution in waters. As can be found in the interior of the Hyundai IoniQ 5 environmentally friendly materials, Hyundai also relies on environmentalism for the painting of the outdoor parts: the polyurethane colors used are derived from natural dyes that occur in flowers and corn plants.

Modern assistance systems

Combined with the latest Hyundai Smart Sense driving assistance systems, the steel body structure ensures the necessary rigidity and safety. Thus, the electrical CUV is equipped with a second generation motorway wizard (HDA 2). Using the front camera and radar sensors as well as navigation data, the system always holds the car in the middle of the lane thanks to targeted steering and brake use and at the same time retains the preselected distance to the preceding car. As a new development, HDA 2 supports the driver with a lane change. The cross-traffic warning with emergency brake function is another safety function of the Hyundai IoniQ 5. When backwards from a parking space or exit, this backwards use sensors to recognize approaching cross traffic. As soon as a different vehicle approaches from left or right, the system warns optically and acoustically. If the driver nevertheless does not initiate a braking operation, the system automatically activates the brake to avoid a collision. In addition, a parking assistant with remote control facilitates the parking and offices. The driver can leave his vehicle and activate the function at the push of a button on his smart key. The vehicle then ranks autonomously into the parking space or again forward from it – no matter whether the gap is aligned parallel or at right angles to the roadside. To ensure the reliability of the newly produced Hyundai Ioniq 5, the intensive inspection system checks whether the electric vehicles work correctly. The system inspects and corrects the cameras and radar sensors of the Around View Monitor, the Augmented Reality Head-Up Display (Ar Hud) and the Front Radar Systems.

In the production of the Ioniq 5, the so-called “Hyundai Smart Factory System” is used. These include automated guided vehicles (AGVS) that transport autonomously to the right place in the factory. AGVs are controlled by mobile communication technology. Sensors ensure that they are on the factory collision-free in the factory. The advantages of AGVs include increased productivity, more security and a better work environment. In addition there are optimized processes and an accelerated quality control. During the production process for electrically powered Hyundai, the IoniQ 5 will be equipped with technologies leading in the industry, which a new era of electrical mobility is intended.

  1. From the article:

    “… the V2L [Vehicle-to-Load] function provides a capacity of up to 3.6 kilowatts. This is enough to operate, for example, a medium-sized air conditioning and a 55-inch TV for up to 24 hours.”

    More detailed, informative article, however the author from the For V2L yes safe useful, max. Power specification of 3.6 kW on the possible duration of any connected devices comes, However, I do not really oppose me despite some effort &# 128539;

  2. It would not have been bad if the author had read his article again critically his article before publication. In addition to the wrong use of benefits (KW instead of kWh), there are many more errors that make reading difficult.
    Above all, the author (as unfortunately many other people also) seems to be clear about the meaning of the term “sustainability”. Sustainability is a term in 18. Created in forestry in the forestry and has the basis of no longer to take wood to the forest, as well. Ultimately, this means by the income (Z.B. live interest). As he comes to the fact that in the car “sustainable” materials are used, I am a mystery.
    Maybe he confuses sustainability with “less strongly polluting”. Those who throw themselves with such terms should at least know what they mean.

  3. That’s a technical check? This is just a written advertising text for Hyundai. That it does not automatically exist the V2L function z.B. not even mentioned. Only in the most expensive equipment package for over 11.000 € Extra charge is this extra to get. You just have to open the configurator briefly briefly.

  4. To this day, no one has conclusively explained to me why this alleged miraculous technique? 800V should speed up the charging process?

    At the charging column I see an advantage for the charging column operator. Through the thinner cross sections of the cable, you save copper. But in the vehicle? The cable from the charging port to the inverter maybe so 1 meter long.

    After the inverter, exactly the same voltage is required at 400V as at 800V. On the other hand, the technique becomes more complex. It has to be loaded both on 400V and 800V.

    I see the advantage of the cargo of the Hyundai rather in the high charging streams which are incorporated into the battery.

    Since Hyundai has found something to prevent tendrite formation. That in turn would have to be found in the cell chemistry. I’m rather skeptical.

    Otherwise, I see black for the life of the built-in batteries. Time wants Tell.
