Kia is also gearing up to launch the EV6 electric crossover in India.
Hyundai has confirmed the Ioniq 5 EV for India. The all-electric CUV will be launched in the second half of this year.
According to Hyundai, the term ‘Ioniq’ is a fusion of “ion” and “unique”. The car is based on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).
In the international market, the Ioniq 5 is available with two battery options: 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh, offering up to 480 km of maximum range (WLTP cycle).
The base version comes with an electric motor that drives the rear wheels. It has an output of 165 BHP and 350 Nm. It can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds. The top-spec dual-motor version packs 298 BHP and 605 Nm and is claimed to reach 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds.
Hyundai claims the battery in the Ioniq 5 can be charged from 10% to 80% in around 18 minutes using a 350 kW fast charger.
