Hyundai IONIQ 5 gets a larger battery pack option in Europe


The all-electric Hyundai IONIQ 5 which debuted over a year ago, offered two battery pack options: a 58 kWh Standard Range and a 72.6 kWh Long Range, with a claimed WLTP range of up to 480 km (298 mi) in the Long Range RWD variant. In the U.S. market, however, the Long Range pack is a slightly larger 77.4 kWh one, which offers an official EPA range of up to 303 mi (488 km) in the Long Range RWD.

Now though, it’s time for European markets to get this slightly larger battery pack which replaces the original 72.6 kWh pack. However, at present, not all countries in Europe are getting this pack. In the UK, France, Germany and Italy for example, the IONIQ 5 offers the same 58 and 72.6 kWh options. It appears that only a few countries are getting the 77.4 kWh pack, including the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

According to Hyundai’s official Dutch website, the AWD model with the 77.4 kWh pack offers a range (preliminary estimation) of up to 507 km (315 mi).
