Drivers from Sacramento to Citrus Heights have been talking about the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 vs. Kia EV6, and these two EV models have been causing a commotion in the automotive industry as well. Both represent the best of the modern EV sedan segment with plenty of technology and tons of style, but which is the better buy? In this guide, we walk you through the key differences between the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 vs. Kia EV6. 

IONIQ 5 vs. EV6: Range and Charging

Between the 2022 Hyundai EV vs. Kia EV, the new Hyundai IONIQ 5 for sale at Roseville Hyundai is the better choice for everyday practicality for several reasons. First, it has a larger battery pack at 77.4 kWh, compared to the EV6’s smaller 58 kWh pack. This is one of the reasons that the IONIQ 5’s range is over 70 miles longer than the EV6 range. 

Additionally, both models feature free DC fast charging to the original buyer at Electrify America charging stations. But, the criteria is different:

  • Hyundai IONIQ 5: Unlimited 30-sessions
  • Kia EV6: 1,000 kWh charging limit

IONIQ 5 vs. EV6: Passenger and Cargo Space

Another notable difference between the 2022 Hyundai EV vs. Kia EV is the dimensions. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a taller model with a height of 63 inches, while the EV6 is smaller at 60.8 inches. This translates into nearly a full inch of extra headroom for the driver, which can make a big difference when going over bumpy roads in Rocklin. Add in an extra three cubic feet of cargo space, and it’s clear that the Hyundai has the edge on comfort.

Hyundai IONIQ 5:

  • Passenger Space: 106.5 cubic feet
  • Cargo (seats up/down): 27.2/59.5 cubic feet

Kia EV6:

  • Passenger Space: 103.0 cubic feet
  • Cargo (seats up/down): 24.4/50.2 cubic feet
