    Hi All:

    The BEV has come a long way, and Hyundai is comparing its evolution to that of other human innovations in the new national marketing campaign for the all-electric IONIQ 5. The campaign’s theme, “Your journey at its most evolved,” comes to life in two new commercials starring Jason Bateman.

    The IONIQ 5’s breakthrough design, advanced technology and more than 300 miles of range represent a significant leap in what it means to drive an EV. Hyundai used humor in this attention-grabbing campaign to compare the IONIQ 5 to other advancements humans have made.

    The 60-second hero spot titled, “History of Evolution,” finds Jason Bateman in different historical eras explaining how initial inventions got better over time. The ad showcases how the IONIQ 5 represents the advancement of the electric vehicle comparing it to the evolution of human language, navigation, phones, and televisions. “History of Evolution” will first air this Sunday during both of professional football’s conference championship games. There are also 15- and 30-second versions for broadcast and digital channels.

    This Hyundai vid is more than just a little fun. ;)

    Hi All:

    I finally have the time to compare the Ioniq 5s 800V charging solution to the Taycan's 850V Charging solution on two excellent EA 350s.

    The Hyundai Ioniq 5 uses a smaller 77.4 kWh/~ 72.0 KWh useable so to protect the battery, you would expect to see a lower charging rate across its SOC range. The Porsche Taycan with the extended range battery, 93.4 KWh/~ 83.7 KWh useable provides a higher charge rate.

    2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 vs 2022 Porsche Tayccan 350 KW (KW rate at a given SOC) Charging Performance

    Charging the 2022 Ioniq 5 from 9 to 80% in 18-minutes and the 2022 Porsche Taycan from 5 to 80% in 19-min on a 350 KW Electrify America Charger.

    05% - NA /246 KW | NA
    10% - 220/250 KW | -30 KW
    15% - 230/255 KW | -25 KW
    20% - 230/260 KW | -30 KW
    25% - 230/260 KW | -30 KW
    30% - 230/265 KW | -35 KW
    35% - 235/255 KW | -20 KW
    40% - 235/260 KW | -25 KW
    45% - 235/260 KW | -25 KW
    50% - 190/250 KW | -60 KW
    55% - 190/205 KW | -15 KW
    60% - 185/180 KW | +5 KW
    65% - 170/170 KW | 0 KW
    70% - 120/160 KW | -40 KW
    75% - 120/120 KW | 0 KW
    80% - 120/120 KW | 0 KW

    Here is a key metric... The Ioniq 5 took in 58 KWh between 9 and 80% while the Taycan took in 65.7 KWh between 5 and 80%. Approximately 59 KWh from 9 to 80%. I suspect the Ioniq 5/EV6 Inverter is a lot less efficient than the Taycan's given the actual large charging rate (KW) delta from 10 to 55% SOC on both.

    The Ioniq 5 was charged on an EA 350 KW in downtown Los Angeles, CA while the Taycan was charged on an EA 350 KW in Oceanside, CA. Both appeared to me to work at their peak charging rates.

    All in, the overall rates while higher with the Taycan, the Ioniq was just a few KWs behind with its 15% smaller useable battery.

    Hi All:

    While at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show yesterday, I had the opportunity to compare the front to rear seating and head room between the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the 2022 Kia EV6.

    Based on the same platforms, I expected the leg and knee room to be identical but that appears not to be the case. I adjusted the front seat and wheel to fit me as comfortably as possible and snapped the pic. I entered the rear seat and snapped the pic of knee room. I cannot explain the EV6s deficiency, but it is there. In addition, ingress and egress from the rear seat found the Ioniq 5 to be far more accommodative with another inch or so of headroom.

    2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 (left) - 2022 Kia EV6 (right)


    I liked the Ioniq 5's interior seating and dash materials better while I liked the Kia EV6s driver and front passenger dash including display layout, wheel, controls, and center console better.

    Moving to the published volumes, the EV6's profile has an aesthetic advantage in that the lower roof height and steeper rake through the rear hatch "looks" faster, but it also measurably cuts into interior cargo volume.

    Hyundai Ioniq 5 Passenger/Cargo/Interior Volumes (cu. ft.)


    Passenger volume - 106.5 cu. ft.
    Luggage capacity, rear seats upright/folded - 27.2/59.3 cu. ft.
    Total interior volume - 133.7 cu. ft.

    Kia EV6 Passenger/Cargo/Interior Volumes (cu. ft.)


    Passenger volume - 103.0 cu. ft.
    Luggage capacity, rear seats upright/folded - 24.4/50.2 cu. ft.
    Total interior volume - 127.4 cu. ft.

    Chasing Stars|Powering the new year with the IONIQ 5

    There’s nothing like looking up at the stars. At this time of year, when it gets so dark so early in the Northern Hemisphere, we find ourselves looking to the stars to reflect and to ask life’s big questions. What we are, where do we come from and where are we going? The answers to life’s big questions lie in the stars. After all, we are all made of stardust. When you look at the big picture it helps us to appreciate the beauty of our planet, while also making our own troubles seem small. It’s also the perfect opportunity to reflect and make new and exciting plans for the new year.

    Capturing Constellations with Nicholas Roemmelt

    Nicholas Roemmelt is a German pro landscape and adventurescape photographer. He lives in the heart of the Alps together with his wife and their two dogs. During the week he is a dentist at a local practice but in his free time Nicholas gets out and into the Alps to “capture those very fleeting moments when you are most exposed to nature,” he says.

    Nicholas’s photographic work focuses on starlit landscapes with the Milky Way or the dancing Aurora.
    Finding the darkest spots to see the brightest skies

    In the winter, the sky is at its most clear, perfect for viewing stars, bright planets, or even a shooting star. In the Northern Hemisphere you can see Orion, Taurus, Sirius, Cassiopeia, and the Andromeda Galaxy high on the horizon, and if you’re lucky you may even see the Northern Lights. But these days, urban light pollution can make it hard to stargaze. So, to see the clearest, brightest views, you need to travel further away.

    The Power of the IONIQ 5

    Hyundai helped Nicholas get out into a remote, dark place to take his photos by giving him an IONIQ 5. Not only does the IONIQ 5 have an impressive driving range of up to 430 km, but the V2L function in the car can also supply up to 3.6 kW of power. Using a converter, Nicholas could charge his spare battery and laptop which means he could take even more photos and stay for longer than normal as it’s nice and warm inside the car.

    Top tips for stargazing
    1. Wrap up warm
    2. Download apps like the NASA app or Skyview to find constellations in the night sky
    3. Look for patterns that stand out for you – they don’t have to be official constellations
    4. Join a stargazing tour or event near you
    5. Don’t use a flashlight or your phone’s light, instead make sure you have a light with a red filter

    ….make sure you have a light with red filter…..
    With all the techy stuff, a dimmable red LED light mounted on your head is sweeter, still. We even made red LED flashlights for sale, 30 years ago.

    Hyundai "Leading by Example" Marketing Campaign for the 2022 IONIQ 5

    African American Creative Showcases the Convenience of an Electrified Lifestyle

    Hyundai and its African American marketing agency of record, Culture Brands, have launched a new campaign for the award-winning, all-electric 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5. Building on the OKAY Hyundai theme, the campaign, titled “Leading by Example,” showcases the convenience of an electrified lifestyle.

    Leading by Example | 2022 IONIQ 5

    The OKAY Hyundai marketing theme was first launched last fall and is designed to strengthen the connection between Hyundai and the African American community through the embedding of cultural references and nuances in the creative messaging. “Leading by Example” brings the same approach to demonstrating an electrified lifestyle.

    “Leading By Example” tells the story of Uncle Miles as he picks up his nephew Blake from school for a guys’ night. The IONIQ 5 is the hero of the journey, impressing all of Blake’s friends at school. Showcasing the IONIQ 5’s ultra-fast charging capabilities and innovative vehicle-to-load (V2L) charging technology, the two are off to pick up snacks while the vehicle charges from 10-80% in 18 minutes, before culminating in the vehicle powering an outdoor video game night.
