Hyundai’s new electric SUV: Amidst a crowded field of electric SUVs, the Hyundai’s new electric SUV—which we named our 2024 Best Electric SUV for the Money—offers a distinctive appearance. Additionally, the large interior and excellent driving range will appeal to buyers. It provides a great deal of value at a cost that is affordable for many. Here, we’ll go over what to expect from the top-tier trim, the Hyundai new electric SUV  Limited, and if the extra money is worth it.


The top-tier Limited model of the Hyundai’s new electric SUV 5 costs $53,500, but it’s still reasonably priced for an electric SUV. There are two mid-tier trims after the $41,800 base SE Standard Range trim. A significant $10,000+ price increase over the standard model is that.

Interior Features and Seating

Is the Hyundai’s new electric SUV Worth It?

This trim is great if you enjoy all the bells and whistles. It adds a tonne of entertaining extras like a panoramic sunroof and LED accent lighting, as well as safety measures like extra parking sensors and a blind-spot camera. It also adds a tonne of interior comfort features. Having said that, we highlight the SE trim’s driving range, technological and safety features, and quick charging in our assessment.

Hyundai’s new electric SUV Alternatives

We recommend carefully examining the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y. Starting at $52,442, the top-tier Model Y has more standard technology and a longer driving range than the Ioniq 5. But the ride quality and interior of the Ioniq 5 are superior.

For $46,995 you may have the Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium trim, which has similar features and specifications. Along with having a longer driving range and a roomier, more pleasant interior, the top-tier trim costs less than the Hyundai’s New Electric SUV. It costs a lot less money and checks nearly all the same boxes.
