The Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s first model developed on their new E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform), which is shared by Kia and Genesis (both owned by parent company Hyundai). It’s worth comparing the Ioniq 5 to the Kia EV6 and Genesis GV60 given all three share the same electric drive train. 

Revealed globally in February 2021, and released in Europe mid 2021, the Ioniq 5 was released in Australia in late 2021. 

The ‘Long Range’ (72.6kWh) Ioniq 5 (known as ‘Techniq’ since July 2022) version with rear wheel or all-wheel drive options were the first to be released, followed by the 58kWh battery ‘Standard Range’ (known as ‘Dynamiq since July 2022.)

The Ioniq 5 offers up to 11kW AC charging and an amazing 220kW maximum DC fast-charge rate. At that DC rate the Ioniq can recharge 100km of range in just over 4.5 minutes.

Australian test standards are currently in a state of flux with the Green Vehicle Guide2 (GVG) showing some vehicle driving ranges using either the old (and highly over optimistic) European NEDC test cycle figure or the newer European WLTP test cycle figure. Worse still, for recent additions to the Australian market the GVG often gives no data at all! Around town the WLTP figure is the best guide for range. If you’re doing outer suburban or regional driving use the US EPA figure.


Charging port

The Ioniq 5 is fitted with a CCS2 socket allowing it to charge via Type 2 AC chargers2 as well as CCS2 DC fast-chargers. 

The Ioniq 5 can be charged at any AC EVSE, however an adaptor will be needed to use the (few) remaining older EVSEs fitted with Type 1 (J1772) plugs. 

AC charging

Like all new EVs sold in Australia the Ioniq 5 is fitted with a type 2 AC socket as part of the CCS2 AC/DC charge plug system. 

Charging rates: 

Single phase: maximum of 7.4kW (32A) 

Three phase: 11kW (16A per phase) 

Charging speeds and times vary on the capacity of the EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) it is connected to and the chosen battery size.

DC fast charging

The Ioniq 5 uses the CCS2 DC fast-charge connector and can charge at up to 220kW. 

This connector is fast becoming the majority DC fast-charge connector type in both Australia and overseas.

To get the shortest home charging time for an Ioniq 5, an 11kW three phase AC EVSE would be needed. 

However, depending on your existing power supply and/or charging needs, a lower rated EVSE may only be practicable, or needed. (See notes below). Lower capacity EVSEs will increase charging times, as shown in table 1 above. 

The Ioniq 5 also comes with a Mode 2 portable EVSE for plugging into a 10A power point. Charging a Long Range Ioniq 5 with this EVSE will take around 31hrs for a 0 – 100% charge. 

Important notes for any home EVSE installation: 

1. High charging rates are generally not needed for overnight charging. 

2. Homes do not normally have three phase AC connected. 

3. Switchboard and/or electrical supply upgrades may be needed if your home is more than 20 years old.
