Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has finally begun delivering the first batch of the loniq 5 to customers in India this month. The EV, which was launched in January this year, is the Korean auto manufacturer's second electric vehicle. Hyundai commenced the deliveries for the Ioniq 5 nearly three months after it was launched at the recent edition of the Auto Expo in January. The electric vehicle, which is the Kia EV6 electric crossover's technical cousin, costs Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom). It is available in 3 exterior colour options: Gravity Gold Matte, Optic White, and Midnight Black Pearl. Notably, the loniq 5 is locally assembled in India, as opposed to the Kia EV6. The company had previously stated, however, that it would only sell 500 units of the eagerly-awaited EV in India this year. Here's everything you need to know about the Ioniq 5 in terms of mechanical specifications, features, design, rivals, and more.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV: Mechanical Specifications

A 72.6kWh battery powers the Ioniq 5, giving it an ARAI-certified range of 631 kilometre on a single charge. The Ioniq 5 only comes with rear-wheel drive, and its electric motor generates 214bhp of maximum power and 350Nm of peak torque. The EV can also support ultra-rapid 800V charging, which takes just 18 minutes to charge the battery from 10 per cent to 80 per cent using a 350 kW DC fast charger.

The Ioniq 5 is built on the cutting-edge, modular E-GMP platform from Hyundai, which supports a range of body types and battery sizes. The E-GMP architecture, according to Hyundai, offers improved driving dynamics, improved cornering performance, and high-speed stability. The platform's centre of gravity is raised by the low-mounted battery packs, making it more stable. The E-GMP's five-link rear suspension enhances handling and ride comfort even more.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV: Design

The exterior of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is distinctive, with straight, clean lines and contours that give this BEV a definite SUV appearance. The distinctive Parametric Pixel LED headlamps, which reflect the special pixel signature and served as an inspiration for this BEV's design, define the car's front end. The car also has an Active air flap (AAF) that, when closed, enhances aerodynamics and, when opened, cools vehicle components. The clamshell hood has a smooth, seamless design.

The Ioniq 5 is distinguished on the sides by Z-shaped side character lines, but its biggest selling point is its 20-inch alloy wheels with parametric pixel designs, which are also said to improve the car's aerodynamic performance. From this vantage point, you can also see the flush door handles that emerge when the driver is nearby. The parametric pixel design is continued at the back with the parametric pixel LED tail lamps. A sporty touch is provided by the rear spoiler with LED high-mount stop lamp (HMSL).

Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV: Interior and Safety Features

The Ioniq 5 has interiors finished in Dark Pebble Grey and eco-processed leather for the seat upholstery. Soft-touch materials are used on the door and dashboard, and the armrest, seat, and steering wheel all feature pixel designs. Further, the car has a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and an eight-speaker Bose sound system that can also play six different types of ambient nature sounds. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster next to it provides the driver with all the necessary information.

The car's impressive 3000mm wheelbase allows for a spacious cabin to be carved out for the passengers. It has a futuristic appearance due to the flat floor, slim cockpit design, sliding centre console, and sliding glove box. The Ioniq 5 is interestingly equipped with Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology, which enables the vehicle to deliver up to 3.6 kW of power. Under the second-row seats is where the V2L port is located. The charging port on the outside of the vehicle has a second V2L port. Moreover, customers can power electrical gadgets like laptops, phones, and other devices by using a converter.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 additionally comes with more than 60 connected car features, including services like remote door lock/unlock, live location, and SOS services, along with a three-year free Bluelink subscription. Six airbags, disc brakes on all four wheels, and level 2 ADAS features like Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Smart Cruise Control are all included in terms of safety.
