Hyundai mistakenly launched a website listing and pre-order for its 2022 IONIQ5 electric vehicle under its take on EV technology. It showcased its minimal specifications, images, and a peek at the early prototype. The business has now shut down the pre-order reservation section. But has been accessed via the online archives, exposing specifics of the latest EV.
For the next-generation innovation with an electric vehicle for the public to use and experience, the popular South Korean automotive manufacturing company, Hyundai, is planning for a busy 2021. Many car makers have now examined the technology of electric cars, with the South Korean business entering the major leagues alongside Tesla, Volkswagen, Ford, BMW, etc.
The IONIQ name of Hyundai will be the electric vehicle line of the business, with one of the first disclosures from the company being a suffix of the product version of the IONIQ5. The IONIQ5 is an E-CUV or utility electric crossover vehicle, which implies it’s something between a sedan and an SUV.
Before withdrawing the website listing for users to view, IONIQ5’s reservation and the pre-ordering page appeared. Speculations around the introduction and announcement of the electric car will be in the beginning of 2021, until mellowing down in the next year of 2022 for development and release.
The first pre-orders were posted on the Hyundai Austria business website and confirmed that only an initial and exclusive 150 units will have to be made for the latest electric vehicle, with a release date of either June or July 2021. This date, though, varies from the declaration by Hyundai of making the IONIQ5 in 2022, which could possibly imply it is for broad public release.

Initially, the Korean Car Blog noticed the listing and reported the leaks online, narrating how the reservation website was published by Hyundai and deleted after discovering that the knowledge was leaked to the new car. The reservation times, however, vary from 18 December 2020 until 31 January 2021.
The Hyundai IONIQ5 specs were seen in the site archive tool, detailing the first glimpse at the technological requirements of the upcoming electric car.
