Hyundai Ioniq 5 to make public debut at The Bullring in Birmingham

Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV hatchback

The new Ioniq 5 from Hyundai will be on public display at The Bullring in Birmingham, from April 23-25.

Visitors will be among the first to see the new electric car in the flesh.

The Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s first dedicated electric model and will be the flag bearer for the launch of its Ioniq sub-brand.

It is built on the brand’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) and is available with 58 kWh or 72.6kWh drivetrain options and with a rear motor only or with both front and rear motors for all-wheel-drive.

The new model is set to arrive in Hyundai’s UK franchised dealership in the middle of this year.

Hyundai’s range-topping all-wheel drive (AWD) option produces a combined power output of 225kWh and 605Nm of torque – enough to deliver five second acceleration to 60mph.

When equipped with two-wheel drive (2WD) and 72.6 kWh battery, Ioniq 5’s maximum driving range on a single charge will be around 300 miles, the brand said.

Following its online reveal, Hyundai received a record number of enquires for the new model. The car’s premiere was followed by 236,000 expressions of interest from European customers, while the limited-edition Project 45 version was almost three times over-subscribed within 24 hours.

Those wishing to be among the first to experience the new Ioniq 5 can visit Rotunda Square, located in front of the famous bull sculpture. The pop-up will be open on Friday between 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM, Saturday 09:00 AM - 8:00 PM, Sunday 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM. 

No registration is required. Early adopters who have pre-registered for the high-spec launch model, Project 45, will have priority viewing windows each day from 11:00-12:30PM.

Hyundai product ambassadors will be on hand to answer questions and guide visitors on the car’s design and features.

Also on display will be another of Hyundai’s electric vehicles, the Kona Electric, which features an updated design delivering 300 miles from a single charge.
