The Ioniq 5 headlights seem rather dim

I have been looking into various models by Hyundai and the Ioniq 5 did stand out to me. I know for a lot of people, the range is not ideal since it only gets 256 miles on a charge. For people who travel far, it would end up causing issues. I don't travel too far so I could make that work. However, the headlights seem to be quite dim which is concerning for night driving. Anyone else notice this or is it just me?

I can't say I had been looking into this car all that much but when I spotted the thread, I had recalled seeing one and thinking the exact same thing! I also looked into it more online and it seems a lot of people have complained about this.
I noticed this on some driving test videos and just assumed it to be the lighting and the camera being used. I wonder if this is something they can patch or fix with updates. I would imagine they can.
Maybe they're dimmer than others to protect the battery life? I test drove one and didn't notice an issue with the lights, but it wasn't dark outside then, so maybe that's why.
