2025 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Refreshed EV Excellence Unveiled

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is instantly recognizable on the road, standing out as a distinct electric vehicle that captures attention effortlessly. Renowned for its electric powertrain, this crossover SUV exudes charm without overtly highlighting its battery-powered nature.

With the 2025 model-year refresh, Hyundai demonstrates its commitment to customer feedback, enhancing the Ioniq 5’s appeal. Here’s a detailed overview of its updates.

As one of the pioneering mass-produced EVs featuring an 800V battery architecture, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 offered an affordable electric crossover SUV capable of leveraging 350-kW chargers, such as those found at select Electrify America stations.

However, akin to many first-generation vehicles, the initial Ioniq 5 encountered challenges. Issues included recurrent failures of the 12V batteries, complications with level 2 charging primarily due to overheating of the integrated charging control unit (ICCU), and instances of power loss that prompted federal scrutiny.

Technical repairs were further impeded by delayed parts shipments and inadequate documentation from Hyundai.

Originally equipped with two high-voltage battery options—a 58-kWh pack and a 72.6-kWh pack—the latter received an upgrade to a 77.4-kWh energy storage unit in late 2022. These values represent gross capacities.

The refreshed 2025 Ioniq 5 models introduce an 84-kWh battery, extending the range by approximately 19 miles (30 kilometers) to achieve an estimated range of 301 miles (484 kilometers) under optimal conditions. The charging speed remains consistent with previous models.

The redesigned Ioniq 5 features an elongated profile, now measuring 183.2 inches (4,655 mm) in length.

Notable exterior updates include revised front and rear bumpers, along with the addition of a rear windshield wiper discreetly integrated beneath a new rear spoiler. This practical enhancement addresses concerns related to visibility during adverse weather conditions.

In response to customer feedback, Hyundai integrates physical buttons for heated and ventilated seats, as well as a heated steering wheel, into the 2025 Ioniq 5. Additionally, the layout of shortcuts on the redesigned three-spoke steering wheel draws inspiration from the Ioniq 6, providing a more intuitive user experience.

Hyundai’s focus on battery protection aims to enhance durability, minimizing potential repair costs and operational disruptions. These improvements underscore Hyundai’s commitment to refining the Ioniq 5 in line with customer expectations and technological advancements in the EV segment.
