We’ve seen pictures of the IONIC5 for a while now, but I’ve never actually seen one in the flesh, on the road. It’s a very rare beast and as of right now there’s a 1 year wait until people are going to be getting them…people want them, but dealerships can’t get them – it’s the typical story of 2022 from all manufacturers. Oh well, we’ve got one and we’ve got an entire week behind the wheel.
Hyundai’s all-new electric mid-size crossover – the Ioniq 5, has been revealed to the public and it comes in three models and a long list of features. It’s the first model to be branded under the ‘Ioniq’ electric sub-brand. The Ioniq 5 rides on the dedicated Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which blends the traditional skateboard design with an elongated wheelbase. At a fairly long 4.65m (182.4 inches) overall and a 3m wheelbase (over 118 inches), it’s even longer than the Palisade!
