Hyundai IONIQ 5 To Get More Range and Power in a Few Months￼
Hyundai IONIQ 5 has become a strong contender in the global electric vehicle (EV) market due to its unique styling and modern features. However, its popularity suffers due to its battery pack that limits its performance and range.
To address this issue, Hyundai has decided to incorporate a larger 77.4 kWh battery pack in the IONIQ 5’s for 2023, along with these upgrades:
- Battery thermal pre-conditioning ahead of fast charging
- Optional Digital Centre Mirror (DCM)
- Optional Digital Side Mirrors (DSM)
- Smart Frequency Dampers (SFD)
The 2023 IONIQ 5’s price is still unknown, however, its bookings will begin in late Spring 2022. Initially, IONIQ 5 with a 77.4 kWh battery pack will only be offered in Europe.
