The TG Electric Award-winning Hyundai Ioniq 5 arrives in Britain very soon. So soon Hyundai has just revealed exactly how much its first bespoke EV is going to cost you. And it’s not cheap, but nor is it outrageously expensive.

The entry-level ‘SE Connect’ car costs £36,995 before options. So it just misses out on the government’s £2,500 Plug-in Car Grant for EVs costing less than £35,000. It has a 58kWh battery good for up to 240 miles of range and rear-wheel drive. Good kit too, with 19-inch alloys, the full-size screens, CarPlay, those cool LED head- and taillights and a load of clever driver assistance/safety systems chucked in as standard.

£39,295 buys you a small-battery ‘Premium’ spec car, and the option to upgrade to the larger 73kWh battery with either rear- (£41,945) or all- (£45,145) wheel drive. Key upgrades versus the SE Connect are heated/power seats, even cooler headlights, more safety/assistance systems and the option to add the ‘Vehicle 2 Load pack’, which lets you draw up to 3.6 kW of power from the Ioniq’s battery to power, well, whatever you want. Even other EVs.
