The Ioniq 5 with all-wheel drive and two motors sits at the top of the range and has a list price of $75,900. I know that sounds like a lot of money for a Hyundai that’s not a giant SUV, but compared to other rival electric vehicles - such as the Tesla Model 3 or Kia EV6 - it’s priced well.
The value for money when it comes to standard features is excellent, too.
Coming standard are two impressive 12.3-inch displays, a Bose sound system, sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats – they’re heated and ventilated, too – a proximity key and retractable door handles.
The LED headlights with black bezel pixel graphics are also standard, as are the taillights, along with the 20-inch alloy wheels and smart cruise control.
If you still think that’s expensive, at least it’s more affordable than Spot. Spot’s price is about $100,000, and you can’t even ride on him. He does have some pretty amazing standard features, though. Spot has five cameras and can see in infrared and through 360 degrees, he can carry 14kg, run at almost 6km/h and function at -20C. He can also dance – I’m serious, watch the video and be amazed.
