Hyundai Australia is selling the Ioniq 5 directly to customers, bypassing the wholesale sales phase in their franchise dealer network due to such strict supply.
It initially planned to bring 400 but in 2021 only an initial 240 cars were secured for Australia, which sold out in just two hours.
It subsequently opened orders for customers in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory in December 2021. This batch included about 100 vehicles.
In January, about 70 offers were made to buyers in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
In March 2022, 100 more were made available to buyers in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.
Hyundai has sold a total of 335 Ioniq 5 models since its launch in September 2021.
The Kia EV6 with which Ioniq 5 shares its e-GMP platform is currently sold across the brand’s national dealer network.
Kia Australia has already set a record and confirmed that around 500 units of the EV6 will be available to Australians in 2022, which is stagnant throughout the year.
Looking to the future, the Ioniq 5 has been treated for some ongoing upgrades in Europe and the UK that could serve as a guide for what is coming to Australia as the MY23 update.
Hyundai Australia could not confirm whether we would see similar changes to the Australian-spec Ioniq 5 model.
As previously reported, Hyundai’s first dedicated EV is now available with a larger 77.4kWh long-range battery, which extends the maximum driving range to 506km.
There are also other changes such as a new battery heater and conditioner feature, a digital side mirror and a digital rear-view mirror.
A high-performance Ioniq 5 N is in the works, as well as spying during testing of disguised prototypes.
