Recognized as the 2022 World Car of the Year, the IONIQ 5 is a purely electric vehicle that Hyundai Motor Philippines is set to bring into the country. Categorized – or described – as a crossover utility vehicle, it features both 2WD and 4WD configurations as well as two different electric motor choices. Both are powered by Lithium ION batteries that come in 58 Kw or 72.6 Kw capacities.

For the smaller capacity battery, charging from 10 % to 80 % takes only 18 minutes and gets you 88 kilometers of range on just a 5-minute charge. With the larger cells, 10-80% likewise takes 18 minutes, but a 5-minute plug-in will give you more range: 111 kilometers.
