The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has just touched down on Aussie shores and in addition to debuting with a host of welcome new features, the local range has grown with the availability of a new entry-level model.
Now found at the base of the Ioniq 5 range is a model fitted with a 58 kWh battery pack, as opposed to the larger 77.4 kWh pack of all other variants. This smaller battery pack drives a new electric motor at the rear axle with 125 kW (167 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Hyundai Australia says this model is good for 384 km (239 miles) of range with the standard 19-inch wheels and will set back shoppers AU$64,500 ($41,402).
Those willing to splurge a little more can order the base Ioniq 5 with the larger 77.4 kWh battery and a 168 kW (225 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) rear electric motor for AU$70,500 ($45,253). This version can travel 507 km (315 miles) on a charge, a very solid figure for a vehicle of this size.
