Exclusive Features Hyundai Ioniq 5 is equipped and not available on Tesla Model Y

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 has many exclusive features and publications have already given the new EV their endorsement. According to Motor1, Hyundai and Kia are eligible to be leaders in the EV space in the future. However, these automakers must do better to ensure the supply of electric cars on our shores.

Cleanerwatt (Jonathon Stewart) is the owner of a YouTube channel that typically talks about Tesla. He’s clearly a Tesla fan, although he’s basically a promoter of green-friendly transportation. Cleanerwatt’s latest video talks about eight exclusive features that are available on the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5. According to Cleanerwatt, customers can’t get any of these features on the Tesla Model Y, which is the Ioniq 5’s biggest rival..

In particular, while Tesla models are equipped with quite a few features, they do not offer a whole lot of extras. This is a good feature because the cars come standard with most of the best features. Specifically, the refreshed Model S Long Range is as feature-filled as the Plaid, which costs $40,000 more.

If you look at Tesla’s site, customers can choose upgrades, such as wheels, paint color, interior color, and Full Self-Driving Capability, which isn’t yet capable of full self-driving. In addition, there are some other tech features that manufacturers offer as extras aren’t offered in Tesla’s vehicles. Simply put, these features all come standard. However, Tesla’s cars don’t offer everything.

Clearnerwatt points out the following Ioniq 5 features customers can’t get in the Model Y:

800-volt architecture
2-way onboard charger
Heads up display
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Hands-free smart power liftgate
Reclining front seats
Retractable sunshade
Ventilated front seats

In particular, the two bonus for Ioniq 5 owners are two years of free charging on Electrify America. Ioniq 5 customers also benefit from a $7,500 US federal EV tax credit.
