Hyundai introduced today the all-electric Ioniq 5 crossover utility vehicle (CUV) in the U.S., where sales will start in Fall 2021. The MSRP prices will be announced soon, but the reservations (with refundable $100 deposits) are already being accepted.

Most things about the Hyundai Ioniq 5 are the same as in South Korea/Europe, so in this post we will focus only on main elements and differences.

There will be only one 77.4 kWh battery version (compared to 72.6 kWh in Europe/South Korea), available in single-motor rear-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel-drive configuration (see full specs below). The target range in the RWD version is 300 miles (483 km).

Both versions will be available in one of the three trims: Limited, SEL and SE.

The car will be available in a total of six exterior colors, including five nature-inspired hues exclusive to IONIQ 5. The color choices are:

  • Phantom Black (Pearl)
  • Cyber Gray (Metallic)
  • Atlas White (Solid)
  • Digital Teal (Green Pearl)
  • Lucid Blue (Pearl)
  • Shooting Star (Gray Matte)

The interior has three color options:

  • Obsidian Black Monotone
  • Dark Pebble Gray/Dove Gray
  • Dark Teal/Dove Gray


Initially, Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be sold in 10 zero-emissions vehicles (ZEV) states - California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont - plus a few more (Texas, Florida, Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona), while a nationwide rollout will follow in 2022.

"IONIQ 5 will initially be sold in Hyundai stores in the 10 zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) states[i] plus Texas, Fla., Ill., Ga., NC, Pa, and Ariz. followed by a broader rollout in 2022."

In the future, besides the conventional sale/lease, Hyundai intends to offer also an alternative ownership model - subscription, which will feature a single, all-inclusive monthly payment, covering the vehicle, insurance and maintenance.

José Muñoz, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America said:

“IONIQ 5 introduces the Hyundai brand to a whole new set of buyers. Once behind the steering wheel, they are going to be shocked by the range, power, comfort, interior space and advanced technology. Owning one is going to be a new experience and lifestyle that only the IONIQ brand can provide.”
