Hyundai Motor PH Shows Off Ioniq 5 EV's Capabilities

As Hyundai Motor Philippines (HMPH) marches towards the market launch of its all-electric Ioniq 5, the automaker showed off its Vehicle to Load or V2L and Vehicle to Vehicle or V2V capabilities.

Built on a dedicated EV platform—the E-GMP—the Ioniq 5 offers 800-volt (the same as a Porsche Taycan) ultra-fast charging and a driving range of 481 kilometers. Even more impressive is that the Ioniq 5 is capable of both V2L andV2V capabilities.

With Vehicle to Load (V2L), the Ioniq 5 allows users to store and convert energy to power up external devices and appliances such as a coffee machine, microwave, electric bike, and other equipment. The vehicle serves as a 3.6-kW power supply for camping or in crises or relief operations.

Further setting the Ioniq 5 apart is its Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) capability. This grants users the capability to charge through or be a “roving service” to other compatible EVs. Similar to an emergency towing or rescue, when faced with an unforeseen battery discharge, another Ioniq 5 can charge the tractive battery. It takes just 15 minutes to gain 7 kWh—good for 44 kilometers of driving range.

The launch of the Ioniq 5 EV is first the first step in Hyundai’s electrification plans. The brand is committed to being a frontrunner in the field and have set goals to achieve clean mobility. By 2025, there will be a total of 23 eco-friendly models in its line-up. The target is 1 million units and a 10 percent share in the market, with 30 percent coming from the Asia-Pacific region.

“Hyundai Motor has always been vocal in its commitment towards mobility that rewards people and the planet. This pursuit for sustainability aims to empower individuals yearning for a green world that they can be in charge of living out change starting with our Ioniq 5,” according to HMPH’s Deputy General Manager for Marketing, Mr. Mark Parulan who presented with President Dong Wook Lee. “Its signature look is definitely special and hard to miss. Though not only is it a mere display, but also the source powering up the café here at our booth. This is made possible via its V2L functionality which we urge visitors to check and learn first-hand. Don’t miss this chance and grab a freshly brewed cup.”

The Ioniq 5 is the triple-crown winner of the 2022 World Car Awards. A feat no other EV has achieved until now. It was recognized as the World Car of the Year, World Electric Vehicle of the Year, and World Car Design of the Year. It is officially launching in the Philippines in 2023.

  1. If this is already impressive, I wonder how much more impressive can EVs be with solid-state batteries...
