HYUNDAI IONIQ 5 First Drive – could this be the electric car of the year?

Robert takes the Hyundai Ioniq 5 for a test drive to see if this could be the ultimate EV of 2021.

We’re at a top secret location, with something really special – the Hyundai Ioniq 5 – and this hotly anticipated electric car doesn’t disappoint.

It looks gorgeous, cool and smooth to drive, but it’s sophisticated electronics and software that really make the Ioniq stand out. An inverter system allows you to boost charging and the car comes with a plug adaptor that you can charge pretty much anything from, including another car!

Built as an EV and resembling a ‘hatchback on steroids’, the Ioniq 5 is extraordinary and will be incredibly popular when it launches at the end of this year.
