Came across this review on YouTube and was quite impressed by the upcoming Ioniq 5. Certainly a larger and more expensive EV than the Bolt, but will certainly give Tesla a run for its money by the looks of it.

I think it is one the best styled cars I've seen in a very long time. If we had to replace our Forester anytime soon, it would probably be the Ioniq 5. I love to see the different new EV's finally arriving. Probably 8-10 years, barring some totaling accident, that we need the next car but I'll be window shopping the whole time.

I had a 2017 Hyundai ionic hybrid sel that I wanted to trade for a new Hyundai ev
No one could get one in florida, so I traded it in for a 2021 chevy bolt premier ev
It is the best choice I have ever made

I didn't even know about this. The efficiency, range, and features sounds awesome. Looks like one could power their house from the car (V2H) if they wired it into their breaker panel after turning the main breaker off. That could have probably run our house for 3 days during our week long outage in Feb.

While watching the video I discovered the Kia EV6. That might be closer to what I'm looking for since it's lower and should be cheaper.

Looking at the features I suspect that it will be out of my price range... just like I suspect all of the Ultium battery equipped vehicles that will be coming out of GM will be out of my price range. I am in the market for a second EV, but I will not wait on this one in the hopes of being able to afford it unless we get some pricing information real soon... I will most likely end up with a Mach E, ID-4, or Model Y.

Hyundai announced ~£37,000 for the UK which would be ~$52,000. However, it's less expensive than a Tesla Model 3 in the UK, while a Model 3 in the US starts at $39,490.

I never take UK car prices as directly convertible into US car prices. For one thing taxes are sky high and they are included in advertised car price. In the UK VAT (value added tax) on a car is 20%. If you get an ICE vehicle you pay additional taxes based on the CO2 emissions it releases. So, that $52,000 would actually be a sales price of around $43,500 in the US... but even that is misleading because car prices are so subjective that what is a luxury car in the US is a common commuter car in Germany and flipped around here.

If the Ionic 5 (big battery AWD) is comparable in price to the Model Y long range it would be worth waiting for... but they need to announce US pricing soon or I will end up getting something else before they peak my interest enough to make me wait for it.

Not to mention that in the UK you have to deal with the "right hand drive " scenario
No thank you.

For Japanese built cars that was not an issue, but yeah for a Korean built car it may add to the expense to have a right hand drive model built for the UK. I know that the UK gets each new Tesla at least a year after the left hand drive world gets it.

I can’t watch reviews where they use hilariously dumb terms for sections of cars. Seriously who came up with such ridiculous terms for the properly named HOOD AND TRUNK. Boot and bonnet is….quite hilarious. I spent most of the time laughing.

The name of the game is cost/mileage. The Bolt is very well priced in the market.

Oddly enough, I got the gas version of the Hyundai Ioniq as a one day rental for the Bolt recall. It wasn't the EV, but I liked my '19 Bolt EV better.

They are not pulling much power from the car's onboard inverter. I believe you would see probably 1500 watts, at 120 volts in the US. Sadly, no better than what folks pull from their 12 volt batteries with aftermarket inverts now.
Isn't the V2L up to 3.6 KW and allows L2 16A charging of another EV? I wonder if this is limited by the adapter,.

Only because this thread was brought back from a month ago...seriously?! Those are long-standing British terms.
And you're Canadian. Fly your colours with honour in the centre of the neighbourhood...eh :)

Most of the world seems to use 220-230 volts as their wall outlet standard. The biggest appear to be 16 amps, 230 v x 16 a = 3680 watts.

The socket shown on their site appears to be the Type L, 16 amp.



I suppose they could put a 220-240 volt, 15 amp window AC outlet in there for the US, but there is not a lot you would use that for.

Still though their terms are amazingly dumb.
P.S. I also corrected your spelling.
