2022 Hyundai IONIQ VS Tesla Model Y

2022 Hyundai IONIQ VS Tesla Model Y

The SUV market has been buoyant in the past few years as this style of vehicle is immensely popular. It’s not surprising that motor manufacturers have developed into this space, where the Tesla Model Y has been prominent.

 

The Hyundai has introduced the IONIQ 5 to challenge the Model Y. Hyundai has positioned the IONIIG 5 as an attainable, stylish, and feature-rich crossover with good performance and range.

 

Range and Charging

Range and Charging

 

As these are both EVs, the distance on a charge and charging performance are very important.

 

The Tesla Model Y has a 75 kWh battery and all-wheel drive, giving an EPA-estimated 531km. Tesla's Supercharger network across Canada is exceptional, and in an hour, the battery can be charged from 10% to 80%. 

 

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 comes with different trims and battery packs. The 77 kWh model with all-wheel drive has an EPA estimated range of 411 kilometres. Hyundai owners have no charging network supplied and will have to rely on third-party chargers.  

 

The IONIQ 5 uses the latest high-speed chargers, pumping the IONIQ's battery pack from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes.

 

Styling and Interior

Styling and Interior

 

Tesla's approach to styling is very bland. The minimalist approach to styling inside has a steering wheel and one large screen mounted in the middle of the dash. There are very few design elements to warm it up.

 

The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5, however, looks and feels modern. The exterior has edgy panels, with stunning led lights front and rear. The interior has a more traditional look with high-quality design elements. The driver has a digital cluster, and a touch screen is mounted on the dash. The seats can be heated and cooled and are extremely comfortable.

 

Technology and Safety

Technology and Safety

 

The Model Y's infotainment screen runs apps when the vehicle is not being driven, but as there is only one screen, the driver must take their eyes off the road to see anything on the screen. 

 

Tesla offers an extra in a Self-Driving package for an additional $12,800.

 

The IONIQ 5 has a fully configurable digital cluster for the driver and a 12" touchscreen for all other features. It also integrates with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Hyundai offers a full range of safety and driver-aid technology.

 

Cost and warranty

 

Model Y MSRP starts at $85,100. The vehicle warranty is four years or 80,000km. The battery and drive unit warranty is eight years or 192,000km. 

 

The IONIQ 5 MSRP is $47,549. This price may well be lower if you include any state rebates. The vehicle warranty is five years or 100,000km, and the battery is 10 years or 100,000km. 

 

Conclusion

Conclusion

 

The IONIQ 5 is a fantastic vehicle. It matches or exceeds the Model Y in all areas. 

 

Is the additional $40,000 worth it? Not in our opinion. When comparing the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq and Tesla Model Y, we believe the IONIQ will carry you comfortably and safely and has appealing good looks, so our vote is for the IONIQ.
