Hyundai EV Model Lineup

September 22nd, 2022 by

Electric vehicles (EVs) aren’t just a responsible choice. They’re practical as well. More and more drivers opt for EVs to reduce their environmental footprint and save money on gas. If you’re eager to learn what Hyundai’s most sustainable new vehicles are all about, you’re in the right place. Read on for Spokane Hyundai’s guide to the Kona Electric and the Ioniq 5, Hyundai’s two fully electric vehicles.

Hyundai Kona Electric

An all-electric spinoff of Hyundai’s subcompact SUV, the Kona Electric is fun and practical. Featuring a newly redesigned exterior, the latest Kona comes with fresh bumpers and wheels. Unlike previous editions of the Kona Electric, it’s without a front grille, giving the small SUV a simpler, more sophisticated look. It’s available in two trims: the base SEL and its more luxurious sibling, the Limited. The 2022 Kona SEL has a starting MSRP of $34,000, while the 2022 Kona Limited’s MSRP starts at $42,500. A lithium-ion battery powers both trims, delivering 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque.

The Kona Electric is available in six colors: Cactus Fern, Blue Wave, Pulse Red, Lunar White, Galactic Gray, and Ultra Black. On the SEL, all colors have a black roof to add a hint of attention-grabbing contrast. Standard exterior features on the SEL trim include halogen headlights, heated mirrors with turn signal indicators, privacy glass in the rear, and solar glass in the front. Upgrade to the Limited to gain features like LED headlights, a sunroof, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Inside, there’s perky, plush seating for five. The Kona is known for its especially comfortable front seats. Cloth trim is standard on the SEL, while the Limited comes with luxurious leather trim. Both models offer rear passengers 33.4 inches of legroom and 52.2 inches of hip room. There are 19.2 cubic feet of space available for bags, groceries, and more, but you can fold the back seat down to make more room for cargo. With all seats down, the Kona Electric grants you a maximum of 45.8 cubic feet of space.

Standard interior features on the base trim include six-way adjustable front seats, an adjustable cargo floor, and automatic temperature control. Limited models add heated and ventilated front seats, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The latest models of the Kona Electric also come equipped with a modern infotainment system to help you access your favorite music, podcasts, and apps while you’re on the road. The SEL begins with an 8-inch touch screen with crisp color graphics and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Opt for the Limited for a 10.25-inch version. The Limited also boasts a state-of-the-art built-in traffic and navigation system to help you find your way anywhere, from hectic city streets to rural back roads.

A six-speaker system keeps you nodding along to your favorite songs in the base trim, while Limited drivers enjoy especially high-quality audio with a refined eight-speaker system. All models have two USB ports in the front to charge and access your mobile device on the go. The Limited adds an extra port in the back and wireless charging capabilities.

Hyundai equips all models of the Kona Electric with a suite of modern safety and driver assistance features, including:

  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS).
  • Traction control.
  • Blind-spot assistance.
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts.
  • Lane management.
  • Anti-theft system.
  • Pedestrian detection.

Limited models also come with a reverse parking alert feature to help you safely slide into tight parking spots.

Hyundai Ioniq 5

If you want an all-electric model with funky good looks that will get you noticed on the road, consider the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5. With its bold angles and sharp lines, the Ioniq 5 looks both vintage-inspired and futuristic at once. There are four trims available: the SE Standard Range, SE, SEL, and Limited. Each trim has a lithium-ion battery, which grants the SE Standard Range 168 horsepower and the other trims 225 horsepower with rear-wheel drive or 320 horsepower with all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel-drive option packs in 258 lb-ft of torque, while the all-wheel-drive model delivers 446 lb-ft.

Here is the starting MSRP for each trim:

  • SE Standard Range: $39,950.
  • SE: $44,000.
  • SEL: $46,250.
  • Limited: $51,100.

You can choose from five exterior paint colors on the SE Standard Range and SE trims: Cyber Gray, Atlas White, Lucid Blue, Phantom Black, and Digital Teal. The two top trims, SEL and Limited, add Shooting Star, a cool-toned dark gray, as an option. Standard exterior features on the base trim include LED headlights and taillights, front grille shutters, heated side mirrors, rear privacy glass, front solar glass, and a towing package to help you hook up heavy loads. Top trims add luxurious touches like shiny black accents, a hands-free lifting trunk gate, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

For a compact SUV, the Ioniq 5 has plenty of interior space. The roomy cabin seats five with reclining front seats, 39.4 inches of legroom in the back, and 53.6 inches of hip room. There’s 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space in its standard configuration, but with the back seats up, the capacity skyrockets to 59.3 cubic feet. There’s also a front trunk, which Hyundai dubs the “frunk,” that adds an extra 0.85 cubic feet. Throughout the cabin, you can find hidden storage compartments, including a center console that you can swing from left to right on Limited models.

Luxurious interior features come standard even on the base trim, like a stain-resistant cloth interior, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, and a six-way adjustable passenger’s seat, both of which are heated. For comforts like second-row vents, a heated steering wheel, and ambient lighting, upgrade to a top trim. A 12.3-inch HD touch screen with built-in navigation comes standard on all models, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Hyundai also equips the Ioniq 5 with its own set of top-notch standard safety features, such as:

  • Blind-spot assist.
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts.
  • Reverse parking alerts.
  • Forward collision assistance.
  • Lane management.
  • Anti-theft system.
  • Traction control.

Upper trims add on features like:

  • Forward parking alerts.
  • Surround-view monitor.
  • Blind-spot monitor.
