2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5: The Electric Car’s Future Gets Brighter & Closer – Forbes

The all-new 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 offers an all-electric range of up to 303 miles

Hyundai says the all-new 2022 Ioniq 5 redefines the electric car for the next generation of EV owners. That’s a pretty bold statement, but Hyundai also says its transforming itself from a traditional automaker to a “Smart Mobility Provider”, with a plan to sell 1 million “electrified” vehicles a year, globally, by 2025. Of course that term, electrified, means both pure electric vehicles and any hybrid model, so the claim isn’t as aggressive as it sounds (and automakers love how it sounds good…).

The Ioniq 5 sits on an all-new, dedicated electric-vehicle platform

Creative terms aside, the Ioniq 5 sits on Hyundai’s all-new EGMP (electric global modular platform) chassis, the automaker’s first dedicated electric vehicle platform, and one that’s intended to underpin a wide range of new electric models in the coming years. This will include a midsize sedan (Ioniq 6) and a larger SUV (Ioniq 7). The platform features an 800-volt charging system that can replenish the Ioniq 5’s 77.4 kilowatt hour battery from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes, a charge rate much faster than the 400-volt systems in the Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model Y. This assumes the Ioniq 5 driver can find a fast charger capable of fully leveraging the 800-volt system.

Hyundai says range and charging times are the primary concerns for consumers looking to buy an EV. To address both issues the automaker has partnered with Electrify America to provide access to a growing, nationwide level 2 and level 3 (fast charger) network. Hyundai also plans to roll out Hyundai Home, a home charging system incorporating solar panels, energy storage, and level 2 (240-volt) EV charging, which can charge the Ioniq 5’s battery from 10 to 100 percent in about 7 hours. The Ioniq 5’s rear motor also serves as an inverter, allowing it to charge at lower-voltage (and slower) charge stations.

The 800-volt system may be the Ioniq 5’s headlining technology feature, but the car has a full array of impressive tech specs. It’s offered with both rear- or all-wheel drive, and with two battery sizes, 58 kWh or 77.4 kWh. The smaller battery is only offered on the base Ioniq 5 SE (standard range), with 168 horsepower and a range of 220 miles. Starting price is $40,925 before a potential $7,500 federal tax credit, plus any state credits you might be eligible for (California offers a $2,500 rebate for EVs). That price includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen, 19-inch wheels, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluelink remote smartphone access, radar cruise control with lane centering, and unlimited 30-minute charging sessions for 2 years on Electrify America’s network.

NASCAR’s Symmetrical Next Gen Cars Are Getting Skewed In Practice – Jalopnik

NASCAR’s newest Next Gen cars may be designed to make these vehicles as symmetrical as possible, but some teams have already found a way around the rules. During this week’s test session at Daytona International Speedway, some cars have been running some fairly excessive skew — and right now, it could very well be totally legal.

Basically, skew refers to the angled nature of the NASCAR Cup Series car. The front end looks like it’s pointing in a different direction than the car is actually going, which gives the whole thing a sort of crab-walk look. The rear axle is mounted on a skew when compared to the whole chassis. For…….


Is Norway the future of cars? – Kathimerini English Edition

The speed by which electric vehicles have taken over Norway has stunned even the cars’ enthusiasts. [Asya Demidova/The New York Times]

Last year, Norway reached a milestone. Only about 8% of new cars sold in the country ran purely on conventional gasoline or diesel fuel. Two-thirds of new cars sold were electric, and most of the rest were electric-and-gasoline hybrids.

For years, Norway has been the world leader in shifting away from traditional cars, thanks to government benefits that made electric vehicles far more affordable and offered extras like letting electric car owners skip some fees for parking and toll roads.

Still, electric car enthusiasts are stunne…….
