Yippee - just got an email from Hyundai. My Ioniq 5 is being built in November 2021 and I am #161. Preferred AWD long range. Just called the dealer to see if there is any way to change to the ultimate.
I think that since the base model is under $45K and the preferred AWD long range is $54999 then it will qualify for the Canadian Gov EV rebate. The Ultimate will probably not qualify in which case I will stay with the one I have ordered.Yippee - just got an email from Hyundai. My Ioniq 5 is being built in November 2021 and I am #161.

Judging by others, and the number, it’s a typo, and yours will be built May 2022. The question is why are these emails sent out so manually with errors.My email says
“Your vehicle is expected to be built in May-21 and is number 1068 in the priority sequence”
does this mean May 2021 was when my vehicle was built or is it being built on May 21st 2022? It’s a bit confusing.
Interesting - I purchased on June 6 and am 161 for preferred AWD long range and you are July 13 and #118 for a different version. Both being built Nov 2021. Looks like they are building your version early in the month and mine later in the month. Hopefully ours come on the same boat in February or March.Received an Email today from Hyundai Canada. It says my Long Range RWD Ioniq 5 that I pre-ordered on July 13 2021 will be built on Nov-21 and is number 118 in the priority sequence. WooHoo. Called my local dealer and said can you change my order to AWD? He said yes and that I would hold my place in the priority sequence at # 118. More WooHoo. Dealer guestimates that the car will be here in Feb or March. WooHoo hat trick!
I'll let you know what my dealer finds out about the grant and the UltimateI've got no email from Hyundai or the dealer today, boo hoo. But I did preorder June 2 so I'm feeling ok about that. Hopefully I'll hear something on Monday. I do think I'll change from an ultimate to a Preferred AWD though. Honestly at this point it's the teal I want, but that makes it a very expensive color option over gray
From the gov’t website it seems clear the Ultimate will not qualify. The Preferred AWD long range is priced at $54999 and will. Adding an option will not affect the grant the a trim over $55k will not get the grant, I believe.Has anyone else here ordered the Ultimate trim? I pre-ordered mine June 2nd 6am eastern standard time. Somehow I received two emails today for two different trims but priority on one was 268 for Preferred AWD and then 469 for the Ultimate.
Trying to figure out if my dealer has messed up or priority is shifting due to trim selection for production batching. Dealer will hopefully get back to me tomorrow; hopefully can sort out at least why I seem to be attached to two orders. The priority numbers seem oddly confusing though. Feel like I should be pretty close to the front of the queue.
Also, about the Federal rebate, nothing has been posted on the ev incentives list for the Ioniq 5 yet. But VW ID4 has a model/trim structure similar and that qualifies up to a configuration priced at almost $60k. I think it has to do with that there are only actually two trims, Essential and Preferred, the rest of it is considered options and isn't taken into consideration for the ev rebate limit. Anyway, all speculation until it shows up on the federal incentives list and confirmed by the dealer.
There is a reason why I mentioned the VW ID4. They have the AWD Pro, and then they have the Statement package. AWD Pro trim qualifies for the incentive, the package is not the MSRP but an option, like paint colour or tow hitch, etc. but they have bundled it to be trim option within a trim to sort of get around it.From the gov’t website it seems clear the Ultimate will not qualify. The Preferred AWD long range is priced at $54999 and will. Adding an option will not affect the grant the a trim over $55k will not get the grant, I believe.
Before including a car on the list of eligible vehicles, Transport Canada has reviewed an application from the automaker and has found that the vehicle meets the iZEV Program requirements. Namely, that the vehicle is:
- a vehicle with six seats or less, where the base model Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is less than $45,000; and
- higher priced versions of these vehicles, up to a maximum MSRP of $55,000, will also be eligible for purchase incentives;
Hi, if you don't mind, when did you place your order?My Ultimate AWD priority 43 is apparently being built right now. I should get a VIN soon. Dealer tells me it is eligeable for the Quebec incentive ($8k) but not sure about the federal one. I did not receive an email from Hyundai.
