We’re hearing that the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV will offer 300 miles of range in the U.S. ahead of the May 24 date in which Hyundai will make that number official.
Well, OK, we’re hearing it via a report in Carscoops.
The report further indicates that while the car will use a 58 kWh or 72.6 kWh battery pack in most markets, it will use a 77.4 kWh unit here in the States.
At least for single-motor, rear-drive Ioniq 5s, according to the report. Other models will include a dual-motor variant that makes 302 horsepower.
Charge time may be impressive, too, as the report indicates that when plugged into a 350 kW charger, the battery will go from 10 percent to 80 in 18 minutes.
Impressive numbers on paper, to be sure, if the report turns out to be true. That truth will be revealed in 10 days.
