Hyundai’s all-electric IONIQ 5 has received numerous accolades over the past few months, including the Best Car of the Year and is also making an appearance in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home.


Award winning

Most recently the IONIQ 5 received one of the Autotrader Best New Cars for 2022 awards in America. The expert judges examined more than 300 models, ultimately narrowing them down to a list of 12 vehicles that they believe are a cut above the rest.


Pioneering all-electric sustainable models including the IONIQ 5 and Kia EV6 also took top spot at the first-ever Best Cars of the year 2021/2022 awards. The world champions were singled out for quality, innovation, design and state of the art technology.


A star among the stars

In its movie debut, the IONIQ 5 is featured alongside the all-new Hyundai Tucson in the film Spider-Man: No Way Home. Hyundai Motor’s global marketing campaign will also include a new TV spot promoting the IONIQ 5 with actor Tom Holland.


The IONIQ 5, Hyundai’s bespoke electric SUV features a driving range of more than 480km and is capable of being charged from 10 – 80% in just 18 minutes. Based on Hyundai’s exclusive Electric-Global Modular Platform allows for more interior space and optimised performance and forms parts of the Hyundai Motor Group’s plan to introduce 23 battery electric models and sell 1 million battery electric vehicles globally by 2025.


The IONIQ’s modern take on retro design includes Hyundai’s first clamshell hood and eye-catching V-shaped positioning lamps. Generous interior proportions were possible thanks to a 3000mm wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs.


Inside a living space theme runs through the interior, embodied by the Universal Island, a moveable centre console and a flat floor where the batteries are stored. Many of the interior touch points, such as seats, headliner, door trim, floor and armrest are made of eco-friendly materials, reflecting Hyundai’s commitment to a cleaner more sustainable future for all.


Hyundai’s Vehicle-to-Load capability sees the IONIQ 5 act as a charger on wheels, allowing drivers to power their electrical devices, homes during power outages and even other standard electric vehicles.
