The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is completing almost a year of presence in India as it was launched at the Auto Expo 2023 in January. It’s now been shared that the electric crossover has crossed 1,000-unit sales in our market, in less than five months of breaching the 500-unit mark in July 2023. Here’s a recap of the EV:

Costliest Hyundai Till Date

When the Ioniq 5 was launched in early 2023, it became both the costliest EV and car from Hyundai to be sold in India. The electric crossover had received more than 650 orders in under two months since bookings were opened in December 2022. 

That said, even though it’s the most expensive Hyundai here, local assembly means the Ioniq 5, at Rs 45.95 lakh (ex-showroom), is plenty of value for money. To set context, the Kia EV6 RWD, which is the Ioniq 5’s direct rival and is being imported here, starts at Rs 60.95 lakh (ex-showroom) due to the additional taxes levied on completely built-up units (CBU). 

Electric Powertrain And Charging Details

The India-spec Ioniq 5 gets a 72.6 kWh battery pack mated to a single motor producing 217 PS and 350 Nm. It comes with a rear-wheel drivetrain (RWD) and has an ARAI-claimed range of 631 km.

Hyundai has put two charging options on offer: a 150 kW charger that can fill it up from 0 to 80 percent in 21 minutes and a 50 kW charger that does the same task in an hour.

Price And Competition
