Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 North American Premiere Set For May 24th

In its local market, the Ioniq 5 has already proven to be quite popular


  • The Ioniq 5 will be a key player in Hyundai’s EV plans.

  • It is the first member of Hyundai’s new Ioniq family of EVs to launch.

  • The Ioniq 5 goes on sale this fall.


The Ioniq 5 was first officially introduced to the world in late February. It didn’t take long for consumers to take note of the new electric crossover as more than 20,000 were spoken for the day pre-sales opened. Now, we’re about to find out how it will be offered when it arrives in North America next fall.

The Ioniq 5’s debut has not been without a few hitches related to an electric motor shortage in March. Even so, Hyundai’s focus on the 5 is unshaken. In fact, its importance is so great that the Korean giant automaker decided to pull the Kona EV from its domestic car lineup for a few reasons including battery fires.

The Ioniq 5 is assembled on a new global electric platform that is expected to be shared with other upcoming EVs from the company. Among its many innovative technologies, it will feature a Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function that will allow customers to freely charge electric devices such as electric bicycles.

The all-new and frankly anticipated 2022 Ioniq 5 will be formally introduced to North America on Monday, May 24 at 12:00 p.m. PT.
