IONIQ 5 Solar Panel Roof
One of the the most intriguing exterior feature on the IONIQ 5 is found on its roof. It is the solar panel roof which is included in limited edition “Project 45”.
Unfortunately, for the other models it’s only optional available for 1290 € (+/- 1500 $). The solar panels cover most of the top of the car and have an output of 205 watts.
According to Hyundai – in sunny countries such as Spain – this should provide up to 2000 kilometers (around 5-6 km per day) of additional range per year.
In order to generate the additional 2000 km with solar energy, the IONIQ 5 would have to stand in the sun for around 4.7 hours per day. So this should also be possible in less sunny areas.
