$8,625 rebate available on the IONIQ 5
Looking to make the switch to an EV? There are many reasons why you should consider making the switch and EECA has provided 6 reasons to purchase an electric vehicle. One reason EECA highlights is the cost of charging an EV versus filling up a car with petrol. Charging your EV during off-peak hours is equivalent to paying 41 c/litre of fuel*. The average charging rate (during the day) works out to be the equivalent of 80 c/litre*. Over the lifetime of your vehicle, this adds up to significant fuel cost savings.
The recently announced Clean Car Discount provides rebates for electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles registered between 1st July and 31st March 2022. Rebates include up to $8,625 for new vehicles and $3,450 for used. To learn more about how the Clean Car Discount programme works, click below:
The IONIQ 5 has been racking up awards both locally and globally, formally recognising the exceptional product seen in this Electric Vehicle and symbolising what's to come for the Hyundai brand. Its long list of accolades includes the New Zealand Car of the Year, the most prestigious industry award in the country, presented by the New Zealand Motoring Writers’ Guild, and the World Car of the year, judged by a jury of 102 automotive journalists from 33 countries around the world.

The future of electric mobility is here
With the IONIQ 5, future mobility will no longer be something to look forward to, but a reality of everyday life. This ground-breaking electric SUV will put you in charge – without compromise, helping you to decide about your way of life and your impact on the world.
Distinctive. Iconic. Pure
The IONIQ 5’s pure design is a refreshing take on electric vehicles, stripping away complexity to celebrate clean lines and minimalistic structures. The unique clamshell hood spans the entire width of the car, minimising panel gaps for a clean, high-tech look. The LED lighting showcases its signature Parametric Pixels – unique jewel-like design elements that will feature on the exterior of all future IONIQ models.
Speciality colours and matte finishes
Spacious, sustainable living
Inside the IONIQ 5, the lines between living space and moving space are being blurred. Our new EV platform gave us the opportunity to re-create the interior as a whole new in-car experience. A larger flat floor, highly adjustable front seats that can be fully reclined, and a flexible centre console that can be moved throughout the cabin, make for an extraordinary experience.
Eco-friendly lifestyle without limits
Environmentally friendly materials are used extensively in the IONIQ 5, like eco-processed leather and recycled yarn. What’s more, raw materials extracted from sugar cane are used on the headliner, carpet and seat covers. A solution that is both recyclable and beautiful. The innovative use of natural materials is another contribution to sustainability in our manufacturing processes, making the IONIQ 5 less reliant on oil-based products.
Making life as connected as you want it to be
The IONIQ 5 is equipped with a stellar range of intuitive smart tech to make life inside as connected as you want to be.
Wireless charging & USB ports
There’s a high-speed wireless charger port in the moveable centre console Universal Island – that can slide back as much as 140 mm, which means second-row passengers can also enjoy access to the cup holders, USB ports and phone charger. The 15-watt unit features a cooling function that prevents smartphone overheating for added safety.
Vehicle To Load charging (V2L)
V2L External Adaptor allows you to use the stored energy from the IONIQ 5 to recharge or power other electrical items. Recharge your e-bike, power electrical camping equipment, or even some domestic appliances. This is even possible when the vehicle is turned off.
The V2L system can supply AC power of 230V / 50 Hz which is the same as a standard wall socket. Drawing a maximum of 3.6kW (or 15 Amps) of power consumption.
Leading the charge into the electric era with E-GMP
IONIQ 5 is the first vehicle built on Hyundai’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This dedicated battery electric vehicle platform enables faster charging, increased driving range, more interior space and better handling. The battery pack’s position within the wheelbase ensures ideal weight distribution between the front and rear and a low centre of gravity for improved handling performance.
E-GMP means more room for passengers
E-GMP enables the creation of innovative interiors designed uniquely for Electric Vehicles to provide a new electrified mobility experience for our customers. The space-consuming AC system has been moved from inside the car to the extra space created by replacing the engine with an electric motor – leaving more room for passengers in the front.
E-GMP means more legroom
The low-mounted battery and the flat floor from removal of the centre tunnel result in much more legroom for passengers.
E-GMP means flexible seat arrangements
The flat floor also allows front and back seats to be arranged in numerous ways to accommodate lunch breaks and road trips and anything else you'd like to do – providing an innovative electrified experience.
Next level electric performance
Battery and range
Pick your power and preferred range. The IONIQ 5 is available with two battery options: 58 kWh (Standard Range) or 72.6 kWh (Long Range). The 58 kWh IONIQ 5 offers up to 384 km of range whilst the 72.6 kWh model will travel up the 481 km depending on the variant.
Furthermore, you can choose an all-wheel-drive version (AWD) with dual electric motors or a rear-wheel drive version (2WD) with a single electric motor. The 72.6 kWh battery delivers 160 kW in 2WD and 225 kW (225 kW) in AWD. The 58 kWh battery provides 125 kW in a 2WD powertrain.
Equipped with cutting-edge technology for intelligent driving, the IONIQ 5’s regenerative braking system charges the battery while driving by using the electric motor to slow the vehicle. You can control the level of energy that the system regenerates and stores in the battery by adjusting the level of regenerative braking with the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The higher the level, the more the car slows and charges the battery when you take your foot off the accelerator.
Holding the left paddle shifter activates maximum strength of regenerative braking and you can slow the car to a complete stop in this way without having to press the conventional brake pedal.
Ultra-fast charging / Fast charging
Enjoy the speed and convenience of best-in-class charging times. No time to wait? Don’t worry, you can add 85 km of range in 5 minutes at an ultra-fast charging station – and charge from 10 to 80% in just 25 minutes!
Hyundai’s world’s-first patented technology supports both 400V and 800V charging infrastructure without the need for additional components or adapters. Which means you can get in and out of rapid charging stations faster, because you have the flexibility of using a different charger if one type is occupied.
Home charging / AC charging
Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of charging station you have access to, the IONIQ 5 gives you a range of flexible charging possibilities aside from ultra-fast DC charging. You can charge at home overnight to take advantage of off-peak rates or top up at the grocery store when you’re shopping – the powerful 10.5 kW on-board charger gives you a range of flexible possibilities.
Hyundai SmartSense safety features
The IONIQ 5 provides peace of mind with a full suite of active and passive safety features resulting in a 5 star ANCAP safety rating under the latest criteria. The IONIQ 5 also was able to produce the best score observed in the ‘Crash Partner’ category, protecting occupants of other vehicles.
Hyundai’s SmartSenseTM technology provides active driver assistance. Through the use of powerful sensors and cameras, SmartSenseTM is able to constantly monitor your surrounding environment for hazards or danger. Should a collision be detected the system will alert and then aid the driver to defuse the dangerous situation. In addition, IONIQ 5 also includes seven airbags as standard, providing the ultimate protection for occupants.
