Given Hyundai’s experience in CKD production, we expect Hyundai to bring the Ioniq 5 electric vehicle to India as a CKD product rather than a CBU unit.

Thoughts About Hyundai Ioniq 5 Electric Vehicle

The EV segment in India is slowly gaining traction in the Indian automotive market. However, the current EV offerings in the country can barely reach 300kms on a single charge. That being said, if Hyundai can offer the long-range variant that can comfortably cover 400+ kms on a single charge, many consumers in India may start leaning towards EVs.
