Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Owning and running an electric car is, of course, a lot easier for those who have their own driveway, off-street parking or garage where they can install a home charging point and, if you’re lucky enough to have that, cars like the Hyundai IONIQ 5 make it very easy to say goodbye to petrol or diesel for good. Check out Rory Reid’s explainer video for why the latest generation of electric-only platforms under the latest EVs are important but, short version, the IONIQ 5 benefits from being engineered from the start as an electric car, rather than converted from an existing petrol or diesel model. That means more space for occupants and batteries, more range, better performance and near price parity with the equivalent internal combustion crossover or SUV you might also be considering. That home charging can save you heaps on running costs, the range is sufficient that you won’t be too dependent on more expensive public power points and – as with all EVs – there are huge incentives in VED (or road tax, as it’s known), Benefit In Kind and more to make the switch a no-brainer for both private and company drivers. Although priced above the threshold for the latest government plug-in grant the IONIQ 5 still looks decent value compared with immediate rivals like the VW ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq, given the performance and other features it offers.
