Another batch of 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric cars will become available to order next Wednesday, August 10.

Hyundai Australia confirmed today the next Ioniq 5 allocation – the seventh since the car went on sale last September – will open at 1:00pm AEST on August 10, for buyers in the capital cities of all states and territories except the Northern Territory.

The latest batch will comprise 135 cars – the most of any since the initial 240 released last September, though given Hyundai Australia sells every car it makes available, supply is still outstripped by demand.

Both entry-level, rear-wheel-drive Dynamiq 2WD and flagship, all-wheel-drive Techniq AWD variants will be available to purchase, with the higher grade including a glass ‘Vision Roof’ as standard.


As with prior allocations, the August 10 vehicles are expected to be pre-built – though a mix of colours and model grades is expected to be offered.

Hyundai Australia says buyers in the latest allocation should expect to take delivery “within two months” – indicating the final arrivals by mid October.

Hyundai’s system of releasing a small batch of Ioniq 5s every month is intended to cut wait times – in contrast to the two-year wait that faces buyers of the related Kia EV6 – and ensure buyers in applicable regions have an equal chance of securing a vehicle.

Pricing and specifications for the latest batch were revealed last month, with an entry-level Dynamiq grade from $69,900 plus on-road costs, or a top-of-the-range Techniq from $77,500 plus on-road costs. Click here for more details.
