The Ioniq 5 might look like a 1980s hot hatch mixed with a dash of concept car and a splash of DeLorean, but what we have here is Hyundai’s first completely bespoke EV. Target? Sideswipe Tesla, mug the VW ID family, and start the Ioniq EV family on the path to world domination. Muahaha. How? Well, let’s Ollie Kew explain…

I think the only thing that will hurt this car and other EVs, the cost. Now they say you get a Federal Tax Credit, which will off set the cost, but a lot of people are not eligible for this tax credit, so who will benefit the upper middle class and the rich. So car manufacturers why can’t you take the tax break and pass it on the buyers.

Very striking design, this is modern and fresh. Makes Tesla’s look even more boring than they already are.

Nice car, shame they don't seem to plan to move over to all ev fleets any time soon. They still play to make ICE cars in 2060!

There are 4 major factor that keeping ICE still alive: 1)- Battery Range (Minimum distance to cover should be 600 miles / 965 kms). 2)- More Charging Station (At least every 25 miles / 40 kms). 3)- Charging Time (should reach 75% charges in 5 minutes). 4)- BEV price (price should be at least $8K from a basic car like the Wuling Hong Guang MINI EV which I know is still cheaper).

Why would this car be competing against the Tesla model 3 and model Y? Surely it's one or the other.

The gift of charging another vehicle. Sounds great on paper, but when you try to do this you'll see we aren't quite there yet. Won't be long though!

UNLESS the UK GOVERNMENT gets serious about building infrastructure for charging all the electric cars are going to be pointless . GIVE ME MORE HYBRID OPTIONS not full electric , or people will be just holding onto there diesel/petrol cars longer and the second hand market will be over priced and low in stock.

Hyundai have always been rock solid on reliability and spec! I noticed panel gaps and paint are also always impeccable on both Hyundai and Kia, dealerships are always helpful. This is a complete contrast to their competition....! 🤔

Am I the only person who remembers the Hyundai Coupe from the early 1990s? That thing was a great little sporty car. Had a 2l engine in it which was quick but not super quick but I remember the dealer saying that the 2.6l engine technically should fit. So Hyundai have made great cars in the past, and Ioniq 5 looks like a return to form. A worthy alternative to the ID3 (which has a lot of cheap materials)

you're still stuck in the past...range anxiety disappears the more you drive around. Vehicle to grid will be great, being able to sell electricity to the grid for 80p a kwh then topping back up off peak at 12 p a kwh ...what's not to like? Also if you are on a variable tariff, you can use your car battery to run your house during peak times, then charge it up during the middle of the night ... win, win and no need for a home battery!

It's an incredible looking car, no question! But "Tesla Rival?" C'mon Top Gear, I challenge you to only make headlines and descriptions in the future that don't reference Tesla with any word, unless more than 50% of the shown car's specs beat Tesla's car in the same class! =P

I hope the E-GMP platform can also adapt for a proper offroad suv or 4x4. Shorten the wheel base, double stack the battery, more ground clearance, intelligent 4wd, and you got an affordable Rivian/Hummer EV competitor. Kia/Hyundai can start eating other people's lunch.

I think this looks good, the Kia ev6 looks great but they are the same yet miles apart in styling. I think that's genius! One type of customer might go for this, the other goes for the swoopy Kia. And either way Hyundai group wins.

The feature to allow for selling battery capacity to the grid is not only critical portion of a distributed energy utility, but transforms a vehicle to a source of revenue vs just a depreciating asset.

8:09 This may be an extremely relevant feature to implement in electric cars in the near future in order to store electricity from renewable sources. May not be useful right now, given that we don't have smart grids implemented yet in most countries, but kudos to Hyundai for thinking long-term.

This prototype is getting a lot of internet exposure. Good thing is that if you're seen one review, you've seen them all, since it's all the same (individual) car. Everyone is getting their 2 hours driving/filming time.... Wheelbase (3 METERS!) is 15cm (6") shorter than an Honda Civic. Still not sure how big this car is though. Looks like an overgrow(?) VW Golf.

"Looks like a hot hatch from the 80's" And that is a GOOD thing. The unimaginative noodling that passes for contemporary design is just an impractical waste of metal that has useless interior room coupled with poor outward visibility in service of trying to ape some Japanese toy spaceship of the 90's.

Hyundai realizes that with EVs, people will care less about power units and horsepower and more about design and practicality. While that may be sad on some level, at least this beautiful design inspires some hope

We’ll see if Hyundai is serious about producing this in volume for the U.S. market or if it’s pretty much UK only and CA like with the electric Kona. Their EV commitment has been pretty weak so far.
