The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is expected to be launched in India sometime in mid-2023.
Based on the Electric Global Modular Architecture (E-GMP), the all-electric Ioniq 5 uses two different battery packs: 58kWh and 72.6kWh. The standard range battery pack provides a range of up to 385km, whereas the long-range one can cover up to 481km, as per WLTP. In addition, Hyundai offers a choice of two drivetrain options: rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.
The base variant with a rear-wheel drive produces 168bhp and 350Nm of torque. On the other hand, the top-of-the-line all-wheel-drive trim can generate 301bhp and 605Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the top speed is rated at 185kmph.
The Ioniq 5 uses a unique 800-volt charging architecture. When plugged into a 350kW ultra-fast charger, it can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes, while the charger also provides about 100km of range with five minutes of charge.
Hyundai offers LED headlamps and rear lights, a Bose sound system, a 360-degree camera setup, dual-zone temperature control, hands-free boot opening, seven airbags and two 12.25-inch displays. Having said that, the most significant feature of the Ioniq 5 is that the car supports Level 2 autonomous driving.
The expected cost for the electric hatchback is between 40 to 60 lakh.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 does not have any primary rivals in the country at the moment.
