Delhi : The Ioniq 5 electric SUV was eventually unveiled by Hyundai India on January 11 at the 2023 Auto Expo after much anticipation. For the first 500 clients, the electric vehicle is being offered for an introductory price of Rs 44.95 lakhs.

The manufacturer is launching Ioniq in India with just one of the five variants, as opposed to other markets, and these are its specifications:

The V2L (Vehicle-to-Load) capability is included with the new Hyundai IONIQ 5. Through the use of this cutting-edge technology, users can use electrical appliances up to 3.6 kW both inside and outside of the car.

The recently released Ioniq 5 has a 631-kilometer range on a full charge. The electronic motor generates 350 Nm (35.7 kgm) of torque and 160 kW (217 ps) of power. Using a 350kw DC charger, the EV can charge from 10% to 80% in about 18 minutes.

Additionally, Hyundai IONIQ 5 has several amenities, including a 1.19 cm (12.3") touchscreen infotainment system, voice assistant, EV remote charging control, 6 airbags, VESS, EPB, MCB, and power child lock.

Specially for drivers and its companion safety there are six airbags, an Anti-Lock Braking System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), all four disc brakes, a Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), and other safety equipment are included.

The business claims that the car's battery pack, which powers the India-specific model, has a range of 631 kilometres (ARAI certified). 350 Nm of torque and 214 bhp of maximum power are produced by the electric motor.

Enhanced driving dynamics, increased cornering performance, and high-speed stability are all allegedly delivered by the E-GMP design, according to Hyundai. The platform's centre of gravity is raised by the low-mounted battery packs, making it more stable. The E-five-link GMP's rear suspension enhances handling and ride comfort even more.

In addition to the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 EV was also on display at the Hyundai stand during the auto show. The Ioniq 6 boasts the lowest drag coefficient in Hyundai's current lineup, at 0.21. In just 18 minutes, it can charge from 10 to 80 percent. A long-range variant of the EV with a 77.4 kW battery pack and a low-range version with a 53 kW battery pack will be available when it is first introduced. The low-range model has a 429 km maximum range. In 2023, Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV will be available for purchase in North American and European markets.
