New Hyundai Ioniq 5 India debut slated for 20 December
South Korean automaker Hyundai has set the stage to unveil the electric Ioniq 5 in India on 20 December, 2022. The brand will also open its order books for the EV on the same day. Notably, the Ioniq 5 will be locally assembled in the country, thus it can undercut all rivals, especially the Kia EV6.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 Design
The Ioniq 5 is the brand's first dedicated EV based on the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). It shares this EV-only architecture with the Kia EV6 and Genesis GV60. The carmaker says that the exterior design of the electric crossover SUV draws inspiration from its first-ever mass-market car, the Pony. Square-shaped headlights and taillights, sharp cuts and creases, and unique wheels dominate the design of the Ioniq 5.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 Interior
The highlights of the cabin are minimalist customisable cabin and environmentally friendly upholstery. It features powered front and rear seats with memory function and a moveable centre console. Hyundai has used sustainable and recycled materials to make fabric. Other cabin features include two 12.25-inch screens, a Bose sound system, dual-zone temperature control, and a moonroof, among others. The India-spec model is likely to carry the same features.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 Specifications
The Ioniq 5 gets two battery packs: Standard Range 58kWh and Long Range 77.6kWh linked to either a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive setup. The EV is equipped with 800V charging technology, thus charging it from 10-80 per cent takes just 18 minutes with a 350kW charger. Meanwhile, Hyundai is expected to offer both battery pack options in India.
