The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is one of the most highly-anticipated electric cars of the year, and it already has a movie cameo. When we think about cars from Hollywood movies, we typically think of ferocious racers or flashy Bond spy vehicles. However, there are still plenty of stylish, yet unassuming models that make it to the silver screen.
According to the Hindustan Times, both the Ioniq 5 and Tucson SUV will make appearances in the latest Spiderman film. In No Way Home, Peter Parker works to restore his secret identity as Spidey, fighting many notorious villains along the way. What makes the Hyundai Ioniq 5 capable enough to aid him on his latest mission?

The Hyundai Ioniq 5's powertrain

The 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5 comes with two battery and motor sizes, but only the 77.4 kWh battery version and configurations are available in the U.S., according to InsideEVs. The single-motor RWD option makes 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The dual motors get you 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque with AWD.
As for range, InsideEVs reported that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Long Range RWD gets up to 303 miles. The AWD version only gets 256 miles of range, slightly lower than what Hyundai had promised earlier this year. The Standard Range model equipped with RWD gets 220 miles of range.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has the same sophisticated 800-volt electrical system as some pricey luxury rivals. It reduces the battery's overall charging time and devotes some of the battery's charge to enhancing performance as well as efficiency. With DC fast charging, its power can be restored from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes.

What are some of the Hyundai Ioniq 5's best features?

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a futuristic exterior, and the interior is just as technologically advanced. In Hyundai's trailer for No Way Home, we can see 12-inch dual touchscreens that make the entire dashboard digital. In addition to standard smartphone integration and navigation, you can get an optional head-up display with augmented reality graphics.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is capable of Level 2 autonomy. This means it can change lanes and keep itself centered with minimal driver intervention on both the highway and in stop-and-go traffic. Remote parking assistance is also standard, so you can reverse your car out of a space before even stepping inside.
The interior itself is made with entirely eco-friendly materials and comes with several standard comfort features. The front seats recline and even come with footrests, but passenger space is still surprisingly plentiful. That's because the front seats are 30% thinner than most bucket seats.
Even with the big battery pack, Hyundai claims that the Ioniq 5 has over 56 cubic inches of cargo space. The sliding center console has plenty of space for small items, and the frunk is suitable for a single carry-on bag.

How does this car fit into 'Spiderman: No Way Home'?

If Hyundai's trailer is to be believed, the Ioniq 5 appears very early in the film. With its 303-mile range, it shuttles Peter and his friend to New York, where they will meet up with Doctor Strange. We know this because Peter punches the superhero's address into the Ioniq 5's navigation system.
According to Hyundai's chief marketing officer, the spotlight on this vehicle cements the partnership between Hyundai and Sony Pictures. Combined with the film's hype and the car's exceptional abilities, the cameo should increase the model’s popularity even more.
