Both come with a 72.6 kWh battery, bigger than the Hyundai Kona, but results in a slightly smaller range of 430-450 km.
To start with IONIQ5 will only be sold on-line, firstly to the 120 who have put down a deposit, then to those who are keen from the 11,000 who submitted an expression of interest, then to the general public.
