all-new IONIQ 5 in Palm Springs
IONIQ 5’s crossover body type achieves unique proportions and short overhangs due to its elongated wheelbase. Measuring 182.5 inches in overall length, 74.4 inches wide and 63.0-inches tall on a 118.1-inch wheelbase, IONIQ 5 offers large-car-like interior space in a compact CUV. In fact, IONIQ 5’s wheelbase is almost 4 inches longer when compared with a Hyundai Palisade midsize CUV, but its overall length is 14 inches shorter than Palisade’s.
IONIQ 5’s interior takes full advantage of E-GMP’s all-electric packaging, steer-by-wire and shift-by-wire systems to provide a nearly flat floor for maximum passenger and cargo space. E-GMP maximizes interior space through its long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs. With the battery pack mounted beneath the floor, between the front and rear wheel axles, the E-GMP architecture creates a flat floor for the cabin. This provides more legroom for passengers, while enabling various arrangements for the front and rear seats. In fact, the Hyundai IONIQ 5 has more passenger volume (106.5 cu. ft.) when compared with Ford Mustang Mach-E (101.1 cu. ft.) and Volkswagen ID.4 (99.9 cu. ft.). There is also a new separate cooling block structure which helps make the battery pack more compact. With energy density enhanced by around 10% compared to existing EV battery technology, the battery packs are lighter, can be mounted lower in the body, and liberate more cabin space.
IONIQ 5 provides 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, which increases up to 59.3 cubic feet when the second-row seats are folded. For added versatility, the second-row seats can slide forward up to 5.3 inches, recline, and also fold in a 60:40 ratio.
