The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a battery electric crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with generous space and high comfort. Tested here is the model with 58 kWh battery capacity. Despite its high mass, typical for electric cars, the vehicle has low consumption values in the standard WLTC+ tests (Cold and Warm). In the dynamic Highway test, however, the IONIQ 5 consumes significantly more, and under cold winter conditions (WLTC+ test at -7°C), the figure even increases by 85% compared to the standard test. As a result, the driving range under such conditions is reduced, due to the need for cabin heating and battery management strategies. The measured battery capacity of 58.8 kWh corresponds to the declared value (58 kWh) and allows a range of about 380 km in standard real-world trips and moderate air conditioning requirements. The IONIQ 5 offers a unique design, but it comes at the cost of increased aerodynamic drag, compared to other electric vehicles. Higher energy efficiency in cold weather conditions would also help to further improve the vehicle's sustainability score.
The lack of polluting exhaust emissions, high energy efficiency and relatively low greenhouse gas emissions from average European power generation give the Hyundai IONIQ 5 a high Weighted Overall Index of 9.4 out of 10 and a solid 5 Green stars rating.
