The Ioniq 5 comes with the V2L (Vehicle to Load) function, which allows it to power electrical appliances up to 3.6kW.
Hyundai has now made it official that the Ioniq 5 is coming to India, and you will be able to buy one sometime in the second half of 2022. For those of you not aware, the Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s flagship vehicle and is also the winner of the World Car of the Year award for 2022.
The Ioniq 5 is underpinned by the E-GMP platform developed by Hyundai, which is a modular platform developed by the Korean carmaker to underpin multiple BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles), as it plans to launch six BEVs by 2028. This platform is also used by Hyundai’s sister-company Kia to underpin the EV6.
Globally, Hyundai offers the IONIQ 5 with the option of two battery packs. The smaller battery pack is a 58kWh pack, which powers one single electric motor on the rear axle and can provide an estimated range of 350km. The larger battery pack is a 77.4kWh unit, and it can be had with either one or two electric motors (one on each axle). The RWD-only version has an estimated range of 480km, whereas the AWD version will only go as far as 410km.
Hyundai also uses an 800V electrical architecture, which can charge the 77.4kWh battery from 10 to 80 % in just 18 minutes. However, the system can also accommodate chargers with different voltage ratings, which means that it is compatible with a wide range of EV chargers.
So far, Hyundai hasn’t really revealed the battery pack that will be offered in India. However, if we were to guess, the Korean carmaker may bring both battery pack options to India, as the EV scene is rapidly expanding here.
