IONIQ 5 is updated with 77.4 kWh battery and digital side mirrors
Hyundai Motor is improving the award-winning IONIQ 5 in conjunction with the introduction of model year 2023. The updated IONIQ 5 will be equipped with a new 77.4 kWh battery. In addition, the car is offered with a range of new features, including battery conditioning and camera-based digital mirrors that further enhance the driving experience of the mid-range electric CUV.
Hyundai launched the IONIQ 5 globally in February 2021. It was the first model based on Hyundai Motor Group’s new dedicated BEV platform, the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) and has since proved popular with both journalists and Hyundai customers. Last year, the IONIQ 5 won a large number of industry awards, with a total of 30 wins across Europe.
“The IONIQ 5 has proven to be very successful in the 12 months since its launch, both in terms of sales and brand building,” said Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe. “The segment is becoming increasingly competitive and we therefore offer improved functions that defend our technology-leading position in the automotive industry.”
