  • The all-electric Ioniq 5 has been spotted once more, with clues of its design elements visible through its profile.
  • Hyundai's upcoming electric vehicle will compete with the Kia EV6 and Volvo XC40 Recharge.
  • Hyundai's E-GMP platform serves as the foundation for the IONIQ 5.
  • Unlike the Kia EV6, it is rumoured to be locally assembled in India.
  • Expected to be launched by the end of 2022.

The electric car industry in India is gaining popularity among buyers, and as a result, Hyundai is planning to launch its Ioniq 5 EV in India later this year. The Ioniq 5 will be Hyundai's second EV offering, following the Kona Electric. The Ioniq 5 was recently spotted testing on Chennai roads, providing us a peek of its side profile and hinting at its impending release.

The Ioniq 5 in India will look identical to the model sold overseas. It has a sleek silhouette and sharp lines featuring a neo-retro design.
