Hyundai has opened an all-electric hotel IONIQ 5. This motorized resort is located in the UK countryside.

The Hyundai Hotel is a collaboration between the Korean automaker and television critic Grace Dent. The hotel will use IONIQ 5’s Truck (V2L) technology to power the entire facility. The car has a V2L port on its charging port. The IONIQ 5 has at least two battery options:

The standard autonomy package is 58 kWh and the automatic package is 72.6 kWh long. It is not clear which battery option powers the Hyundai Hotel. If you are insterested in other markets, like Hyundai cars Philippines, you can click here.

Hyundai says the V2L can deliver up to 3.6 kW of power. The Korean automaker says the IONIQ 5 can charge high-powered electrical devices using an inverter. The vehicle can also provide power when the engine is off. They are looking for vacations that are more unique and memorable than ever and that are a wonderful blend of innovation, luxury and thought-provoking comfort. With car power, where could the next Hyundai hotel appear? As commented by Grace Dent.

The entire concept of the hotel is based on research commissioned by Hyundai. About 2,000 vacationers took part in the study. Over 55% of participants noted that the cost-of-living crisis has prompted them to reevaluate their vacation plans.

About 44% of the study’s holidaymakers said they are more likely to stay in 2023 than they are in 2022. About 31% of the participants indicated that those who stayed would be better off for vacations or shorter break time. Three in ten holidaymakers rated the British countryside as a good place to enjoy their little holiday.

The Hyundai Hotel is located in Essex, an hour from central London. Its location seems to be ideal for short stays or small stays. The motivated hotel is centered around an upscale luxury cabin at Colemans Ranch. Everything in the cabin is equipped with IONIQ 5’s V2L technology.

Their award-winning IONIQ 5 can power a Hyundai Hotel with V2L functionality, where an in-car adapter provides an outlet to plug home appliances into. The whole experience showcases the practicality of this pioneering technology and we hope the concept will appeal to even more people,” said Ashley Andrews, CEO of Hyundai Motor UK.

Hyundai’s award-winning all-electric vehicle also powers the hotel’s cafe and restaurant IONIQ 5. It also powers the hotel’s cinema projectors, speakers, and popcorn machines.

The Hyundai Hotel only operates for 14 nights from October 19 to November 5. It will be open from Wednesday to Sunday. Those interested in staying at the hotel have a chance to win a motorized hotel stay with. The contest will run from October 6 to October 19. For those unlucky enough to stay at a Hyundai hotel, there may be hope for the future. Car-powered hotels may appear elsewhere in the future.

Dent teased that he hoped this three-week pop-up hotel is just the beginning of this trendy car concept and promotes a luxury experience like this. And, he predicted that guests will expect the hotel to be fantastic, his and the complete experience ‘it provides could be here again in 2023,’
