Hyundai is all set to launch the all new Ioniq 5 All Electric CUV in India. The company earlier reported that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 would experience a launch sometime this year. It will come as a CBU unit and be foregathered as a niche offering. The company claims that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a Mileage of 481 km from a 72.6 kWh battery and can sprint at a speed of 100 kmph in just 5.2 seconds. Let’s have a dedicated look at what this creativity consists of.
Exterior Appearance Of Hyundai Ioniq 5
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 was first viewed at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show as the 45 EV concept car, and the final production sticks closely to the retro-inspired style of the concept. This Hyundai product stands out in the crowd in terms of looks compared to other Hyundai automobiles currently on sale. However, the Ioniq 5 is different-looking compared to previous Ioniq cars.
The Ioniq 5 is characterised by flat surfaces, clean lines, crisp design, and a typical SUV stance but includes highly raked windshields. The unsophisticated design makes this four-wheeler stand unique in its class. The inelegant features consist, flamboyant Alloy Wheels and Pixelated front and rear LED lights.
Interior Specifications Of Hyundai Ioniq 5
The best advantage an electric skateboard platform vehicle can consist of is a modular and flexible interior design. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is characterised by adjustable seats that can recline and slide and even a mobile centre console that slides back and forth by up to 140mm. The cabin is minimalistic, with an excess of free space. The carmaker has even used sustainable materials such as paperette for seats, door upholstery and recycled plastic bottles.
The gadgets equipped in this vehicle consists of two 12-inch screens, one for the instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment system, which features Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car suite. The vehicle is also accompanied by an advanced head up display, which features augmented reality functions, front view cameras, advanced driver assistance features via radar sensors, and GPS data. The vehicle also gets digital screens for rear-view mirrors.
Platform and Powertrain
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is available in 2 Powertrain variants globally. The base variant is a setup with a single motor capable of producing 169 hp and a max torque of 350 Nm and has a rear-wheel-drive layout. This variant can sprint from 0-0-10 kmph in 8.5 seconds. The dual-motor variant can produce 306 hp and a peak torque of 605 Nm. This variant can run from 0-100 kmph in just 5.2 seconds and can go on to hit a top speed of 185 kmph.
It is yet to experience which Powertrain variants Hyundai launches in India. As mentioned, The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has been designed on a unique dedicated electric platform termed the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The Electric Global Modular Platform is versatile, meaning it can also be adapted to other body styles.
Battery Information Of Hyundai Ioniq 5
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will have two battery packs options – 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh. The larger battery is capable of covering 481 km on the WLTP cycle. However, the smaller battery promises a range of 385 km on the WLTP cycle. Both all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive wheel variants of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 can be experienced with either battery packs.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 also uniquely features an 800 Volts battery that was only seen in Porsche Taycan. This verifies a potential of ultra-fast charging, where the Hyundai Ioniq 5 can juice up its batteries from 10 per cent to 80 percent in just a time of 18 minutes, utilising a 220 kW DC charger.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is expected to swim to our shore this year as a fully imported unit, giving us a hint that it would be pricier. While it will only face Limited buyers in the country, the carmaker follows a top to down approach with its electric vehicle line-up in the Indian market. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will showcase itself as the flagship electric vehicle portraying its prowess in electrification. In 2024, the company is also expected to launch a mass-market electric car at a more pocket-friendly price point, one of which will be enriched explicitly for India.
