The offer appears to be more attractive than initially expected, and not only that - it will include the entry-level 58 kWh battery option (previously only the 77.4 kWh battery version was announced), which was recently discovered in the EPA range and efficiency rating documents.
However, there is one catch related to the 58 kWh battery. While all of the 77.4 kWh battery versions will be available right from the start (deliveries to start in late December), the 58 kWh battery version will join the lineup a little bit later - in Spring 2022.
Versions and prices
2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE Standard Range RWD 19"
Hyundai has listed a total of 7 versions/trims. The entry-level version, called Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE Standard Range (58 kWh, 220 miles of EPA range, RWD, 125 kW) will start at an MSRP of $39,700 (+$1,225 DST), which after deducting the $7,500 federal tax credit will turn into effectively $33,425.
2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE RWD 19"
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE (77.4 kWh, RWD, 168 kW), which offers more power and range (303 miles/488 km EPA) will start at an MSRP of $43,650. That's $37,375 effectively.
At such a price, it would be difficult to find a spacious electric crossover/SUV with 300 miles of range and fast charging capability from 10 to 80% state-of-charge (SOC) in just 18 minutes. It sounds like an outstanding offer if only there is a decent supply (which we all know how difficult is these days).
The increase in battery capacity from 58 to 77.4 kWh and power from 125 kW to 168 kW costs $3,950 (assuming the rest of the equipment is the same).
2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE AWD 19"
Then we see the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version, which has some 139 kW of power. It starts at an MSRP of $47,150, which is $3,500 more than RWD, and effectively $40,875.
This version also has a 77.4 kWh battery, but its range is noticeably lower - 256 miles (412 km).
There are also two upper trims: SEL and Limited, both in RWD and AWD versions (all 77.4 kWh):
|Model||Base Price||Dest. Charge||Tax Credit||Effective Price|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE SR RWD 19"||$39,700||+$1,225||$7,500||$33,425|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE RWD 19"||$43,650||+$1,225||$7,500||$37,375|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SE AWD 19"||$47,150||+$1,225||$7,500||$40,875|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SEL RWD 19"||$45,900||+$1,225||$7,500||$39,625|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 SEL AWD 19"||$49,400||+$1,225||$7,500||$43,125|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Limited RWD 19"||$50,600||+$1,225||$7,500||$44,325|
|2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Limited AWD ||$54,500||+$1,225||$7,500||$48,225|
At this point, we are not sure about the wheel sizes in the Limited trim, especially Limited AWD. The base version is 19", but the website indicates 20" in the Limited AWD version.
It's important because if the Limited AWD version has 20" wheels and is promised to deliver the same EPA range as the SE AWD version with 19" wheels, it would mean that those less expensive trims are underrated (the EPA range was leveled to the lowest result). In fact, the SE/SEL AWD versions were expected to achieve an EPA range of 269 miles (433 km).
We will update the story once we find out the wheel sizes for all versions.
