2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 First Impressions | Talking Cars #338 1

This week we share our first impressions of the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5. We discuss everything from driving impressions, styling, control usability, vehicle structure and the Ioniq name itself. Find out what skateboards have to do with EVs and how this all-electric hatchback measures up to Hyundai's three-row SUVs. Plus, we answer a question on recycling old EV batteries.

    I would buy this as first ev.

  2. Why is there only one viewer question per podcast recently?

  3. Crossover style. Not an SUV. The automakers are indeed maximizing the benefits of the electric skateboard 🛹 platform. I think that the retro-chic 80s styling cues are retro cool 😎

  4. Question for CR: with EVs with the potential for regenerative braking – aren’t RWD platforms disadvantaged because they’re not using the front axle for the primary braking force?

  5. Bring back the in-person episodes!

  6. 1:56 The US version does not get the solar panel roof.

  7. I’m interested in the Kia EV6, but I probably won’t buy it because of Hyundai/Kia’s reputation for not honoring their own warranties, poor fit and fitment issues, and historically horrible dealerships.

  8. your test model is off Long Beach :}

  9. Question for CR: 

    Hyundai & Kia chose to not give a rear window wiper with Ioniq 5 & EV6. How does it impact rear visibility driving on a rainy day? Also, are the side view/rearview mirror auto-dimming?

  10. The Ionic reminds me of 80s French cars. I think it’s on the ugly side. It does look small, I’m intrigued that you say it has a bigger wheel base that the Palisade. I’ll have to see it person.

    I’m still one the fence about EVs. I do think they are better cars but am curious what our electric bills will look like when there are a few million EVs charging on the grid and how long the lines will be at the interstate charging stations will be. I still only see them as local use vehicles and if your doing a long drive you are better off renting a gas car where it’s only a 5 min refill. For now I’ll stick with a hybrid till recharge times get shorter and the infrastructure get built out. I think this industry change over to EVs is exciting, let’s hope that current manufacturers can survive the coming Chinese EV tsunami.

  12. Thank you

  13. Just like my 15 yr old catalytic converter is worth stealing today, I bet there’s value in the current batteries 15 yrs from now

  14. Need another ten minutes. I prefer the longer format.

  15. I wish the skateboard paradigm be replaced with the quick exchange system of families of compatible power packs with respect with geometry and size and electrical connectivity. Too many families that live in dense multi-family communities for which individual charging hookups are out of the question, or long distance business drivers will find short driving range and hours long charging times renders EV products not feasible, as well as range anxiety. The individual charging hookups could still be a viable option for short distance drivers who are fortunate enough to be permitted to have home charging setups. The quick exchange motif confers two compelling advantages: First a degree of financial protection from technological obsolescence as breakthrough improvements in power storage density comes forth. Second, the threat of neighborhood overload of power grids is largely alleviated as conversion of local fueling stations evolve into quick exchange power pack stores and regional distribution and recharging centers located adjacent to power generating and renewal energy plants. Also, tank wagons with their inherently empty back hauls are replaced with 18-wheelers, perhaps powered with LNG instead of diesel.

  16. This should have been the design for the ID4. Or at least a scaled down GTI in an electric future…

  17. Ice is done!!! Battery electric is better in every way.

  18. This is what people in the 80’s thought cars would look like today

    Gundam RE0096 https://youtu.be/cUexh8SjZMY
    Cowboy Bebop Ending Theme https://youtu.be/f6M-oWsRE9Q
    King of Fighters XV Krizalid’s boss stage theme https://youtu.be/Hp7THmIQiXk

  19. 13:25 If my 2012 car needed already needed a new engine I’d be thoroughly disappointed in that manufacture. Yet here is RENAULT-nissan with their Leaf already completed with the life of its battery. AVOID RENAULT NISSAN!!!!!!!

  20. Here are some car names the OEMs can use for new models. Everyone will like the Chevy Facade, the Dodge Polecat, or the Nissan Idbuster.
