The price of the cheapest 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric car has been slashed by $7500 with the addition of a smaller battery option – and fewer features as standard.
Hyundai has reshuffled the Ioniq 5 range for the third time in two years with a new entry-level, Standard Range RWD model that – at $64,500 plus on-road costs – is eligible for government electric-car subsidies in various states and territories, including a Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption.
It is $900 cheaper than the entry-level Tesla Model Y – and $7500 less than the least-expensive model in the 2023 line-up, which was priced from $72,000 plus on-road costs.
Hyundai Australia says it hopes to sell 2000 Ioniq electric vehicles this year, before doubling the figure next year, and doubling it again in 2025.
The previous three-model structure – Dynamiq, Techniq and Epiq – has been replaced by an eponymous base Ioniq 5, mid-grade Ioniq 5 Dynamiq, and top-of-the-range Ioniq 5 Epiq.
Price changes – when comparing like-to-like variants – range from a $1500 cut for the cheapest long-range model, to a $4500 hike for the Dynamiq Extended Range rear-wheel-drive (RWD).
The new base Ioniq 5 is the old 2023 Dynamiq with a power-adjustable passenger seat, full leather seats, heated front seats, a head-up display, Bose sound system, power tailgate, privacy glass and alloy pedals removed – and a heat pump and battery conditioning system added.
The 2024 Dynamiq is equivalent to the defunct 2023 Techniq, with the exception of ventilated front ‘relaxation’ seats, a heated power-adjustable rear seat bench, heated steering wheel and rear door sunshades, which are now restricted to the Epiq.
Meanwhile the Epiq is no longer fitted with digital side mirrors as standard, which now form part of a $3000 option pack alongside a digital centre rear-view mirror.
Powering the base model is the choice of a new 58kWh ‘Standard Range’ battery and 125kW/350Nm rear electric motor – or the 77.4kWh ‘Extended Range’ battery and 168kW/350Nm rear electric motor previously in the Dynamiq.
Driving range is claimed as 384km with the smaller battery, or 507km with the larger battery – riding on the base model’s 19-inch wheels.
The 2024 Dynamiq offers the 77.4kWh battery as standard, with a choice of rear-wheel drive and 168kW – carried over from the 2023 version – or all-wheel drive and 239kW (from 74kW front and 165kW rear motors), previously standard on the Techniq model.
It claims driving range of 476km with rear-wheel drive – due to its 20-inch wheels with higher rolling resistance tyres, matching the 2023 Techniq but up from the 2023 Dynamiq’s 19-inch alloys – or 454km with all-wheel drive.
The Epiq model offers the same 77.4kWh battery and choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. The 2023 version was all-wheel drive only.
