Hyundai India has listed their all-electric car, IONIQ 5, on its Indian website. This hints that the company is nearing the launch of the vehicle. Additionally, interested customers can register on the website for further updates.
What Is The IONIQ 5?
At first glance, the car looks very different from a typical Hyundai. The vehicle gets sharp angular cuts that include a lot of creases. A dual headlight setup with pixelated LED taillights adds to the overall outlook. Flush fitting door handles are getting increasingly popular, and they have also found their place in the IONIQ 5. Come to the inside, and you will find an unconventional setup. The two dual floating screens grab the maximum attention.
Internationally, the latest IONIQ 5 gets a 58 kWh and 77.4 kWh battery back. However, reports suggest that the Indian model will only be available with the 58 kWh battery pack. As per the WLTP cycle, the range is 480 km. The base version of the IONIQ 5 gets a single motor setup. The performance figure reads as 165 BHP and 350 Nm. Meanwhile, the dual-motor setup gets 298 BHP and 605 NM. 0 to 100 kmph comes in just under 5.2 seconds. The recent update to the car will also benefit from range enhancement and video-based digital side mirrors. One unique feature is the camera mounted on the rear spoiler, which gives a panoramic rear view of the car.
Hyundai IONIQ 5 is the first model based on the dedicated BEV platform, E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform). Launched back in February 2021, the car has gotten enough recognition in the international market. In fact, for 2022, it was awarded the prestigious World Car of The Year. With the IONIQ 5, Hyundai looks all prepared to take on the EV segment for the Indian market. Currently, we have the Hyundai Kona as the only EV offering from the South Koran carmaker. And with the IONIQ 5, we also expect more titles from Hyundai in the EV space in the upcoming years.
