Hyundai today launched the Ioniq 5 crossover at an introductory price of Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom) for the first 500 customers. Hyundai Ioniq 5 is Rs 16 lakh cheaper than the Kia EV6. The Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s second electric offering for India after the Kona EV, which is priced at Rs 23.84 lakh (ex-showroom). Bookings are already underway for Rs 1 lakh. 

    The Ioniq 5 won the 2022 World Design of the Year and World Electric Car of the Year awards, along with the top honour – the 2022 World Car of the Year award. 

    New Hyundai IONIQ5 EV

    The Hyundai Ioniq 5 was first previewed as the 45 EV concept at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and the final production model heavily draws inspiration from the retro-futuristic design language of the concept. The retro look of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 features sharp lines, flat surfaces and SUV-ish stance, but with highly raked windscreens. The headlights and tail-lights get a unique pixelated look and the 20-inch aero-optimised wheels feature a turbine-like design. Hyundai is offering the Ioniq 5 in three colours – Gravity Gold Matte, Optic White and Midnight Black Pearl. 

    The Hyundai Ioniq 5’s interior sports a flat floor, flexible seats and a movable centre console. Hyundai has used fabrics made from recycled plastic and eco-friendly leather for upholstery. In terms of equipment, the Ioniq 5 gets a pair of 12.3-inch screens for the instrument cluster and touchscreen, heads-up display with augmented reality functions and ADAS tech. Additionally, it gets vehicle-to-load function with an output of 3.6kW, which can power-up electrical appliances like laptops and mobiles. This function can be used via two ports – one located under the rear seats and another outside the car, near the charging port.

    The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is powered by a 72.6kWh battery, with an ARAI-certified range of 631km on a single charge. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be available only in rear-wheel-drive configuration, with its electric motor producing 217 hp and 350 Nm of torque. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is also capable of supporting superfast 800V charging, which can charge the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes.
