Hi All,
As you know I am selling my Stinger and Due to circumstances I am going to an Electric SUV/CUV style vehicle, Just had a Confirmation eMail from Hyundai that I have been allocated 1 of the 3000 Special Edition Ioniq 5 - Project 45 vehicles allocated for Europe, I am really pleased to have got one as the interest was immense for this vehicle, over 9000 attempts to reserve 1 in the 1st hour (Only 3000 available), and 296,000 people registered interest in the first 24hrs or so.

If I didn't get this my fall back was the Ford Mustang Mach-E (which I already had a deposit down for).

Although I will be sad getting rid of the Stinger, at least I will still be with Hyundai / KIA group, Will receive an email within 2 weeks to confirm deposit payment then hopefully delivery by June/July this year

Thanks, I am over the moon about it. If you like what you see with the Kia CV and you can pre-order - will you be applying for one ?

This is brilliant. The car looks really good! Which battery capacity / performance will it be?
Won't get the final specs for a couple of weeks I think when we put the deposit down, the vehicle should have a 72.6kWh battery pack (larger 77kWh pack for the US I Believe) and about 306hp.
Acceleration 0 - 62 mph in 5.2 sec, Total Torque = 446 lb-ft approx 310 mile range (although lots of things determine the range)

Oh I forgot it has an auto park feature which you can also do from outside the car (key fob has forward and backward buttons) so you could park outside your garage get out, and self park the car in the garage....:ROFLMAO:

Size comparison to the Stinger (Length wise 37cm shorter but wheelbase is 10cm longer than the Stinger)

Ioniq 5
Length 4460 mm
Width 1890 mm
Height 1600 mm
Wheelbase 3000 mm
Weight (EU) 1800 kg

Stinger
Length 4830 mm
Width 1870 mm
Height 1400 mm
Wheelbase 2905 mm
Weight 1780 kg

Cheers

Very good. The thing I like about this car is that that it looks 'next gen' rather than just a boring old SUV with an electric motor instead of a petrol one.
