Hyundai Ioniq 5: Hyundai improves bestseller

The Ioniq 5 has been very well received in Norway. According to OFV, 3557 new cars will be listed on the Norwegian signage by 2021. The number could be much higher if importers get access to more cars, as the waiting list is long.

How long the importers won’t be gone, but they say that if you order a new car today, you can expect it to be delivered in about six months. And it’s very much in tune with the upgraded 2023 model that will be available in Europe in the second half of the year.

Here’s what you need to know about Ioniq 5

Among the news is an upgraded battery pack with an output of 77.4 kWt – up from 72.6 kWt on the current model which gives a range of 460 km WLTP in the four-wheel drive model. Maybe enough to cover 50 miles?

Another novelty is that digital mirrors come as an option. The small camera on the side replaces the conventional mirror housing while the ceiling-mounted camera signals to the screen that replaces the interior mirror.

Another clever feature of the 2023 model is that it automatically heats up the battery when you enter a fast charging station as a destination in the navigation system. It can provide much faster fast charging on cold days, which we found a lot in Norway.

Hyundai also promises an updated suspension that will provide increased comfort.
