The 2022 Ioniq 5 is a hotly anticipated EV coming early next year from Hyundai, and now the South Korean car company has made it even easier to like. Canadian pricing just announced means it will qualify for the federal government’s $5,000 EV rebate.
Four trim levels will be available; the lowest model, the Essential, starts at $44,999, a mere Loonie under the rebate threshold, which means that every model will qualify. The Essential gets a range of 354 kilometres with a 58 kWh battery, as does the second-tier Preferred model, which starts at $46,999. The Preferred Long Range starts at $51,999 but gets a 480-km range with its 77.4 kWh battery, while the AWD version, which starts at $54,999, drops to 415 km of range. The top-tier model, the Preferred AWD Long Range with Ultimate Package, is $59,999 with the same 415 km.
Charging is the Ioniq 5’s forté. Using a 350-kW DC fast charger, it can get an 80 per cent charge in just 18 minutes. Even a five minute charge gets up to 100 km added to the range.
You can pre-order the Ioniq 5 now, and cars are expected to hit the lots by December 1.
