Power and Performance
Today, you can get an electric-powered vehicle, and you don’t have to give up on performance. The Ioniq 5 SUV and the Volkswagen ID4 both have excellent acceleration, torque, and handling. When compared, the Ioniq 5 SUV seems to edge out the Volkswagen ID4 in every category.
The latest Hyundai crossover SUV, the Ioniq 5, offers drivers all-wheel drive. The dual motor output a hefty 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque. For reference, this is more horsepower and torque than some Tesla Model 3s. On top of that, the Ioniq 5 small electric crossover’s acceleration can push you back in your seat. With the power to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, Hyundai’s crossover SUV has all the speed you need.
The Volkswagen ID4 gives the stylish driver the performance they’ll need to get around town on a day-to-day basis, but it falls short of the stats we see out of the Hyundai Ioniq 5. The Volkswagen ID4’s two motors produce 295 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque, achieving 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds. The Volkswagen ID4 comes with a “B” mode feature, which offers similar deceleration support as the Ioniq 5. However, it does not provide the full one-pedal drive mode that you can get from the Ioniq 5’s I-Pedal regenerative breaking feature.
