Hyundai recently launched its long-awaited EV, the Ioniq 5 at the 2023 Auto Expo with a price tag of Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a distinct exterior design with clean and sharp lines, as well as features that give this BEV a distinct SUV shape. The unique Parametric Pixel LED Headlamps define the car's visage, reflecting the striking pixel character, a design influence for this BEV. The clamshell hood is smooth and seamless, and the car has an Active air flap (AAF) that increases aerodynamics when closed and cools vehicle parts when opened. The Ioniq 5's flanks are defined by Z-shaped side character lines, and the major lure is the 20-inch parametric pixel design alloy wheels, which are also touted to help the car's aerodynamic efficiency. The flush door handles that automatically pop out when the driver is close by may also be seen from here. 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 an LED high-mount stop light (HMSL).

The manufacturer claims that the Ioniq 5 EV has a range of 631 kilometres on a single charge. The Ioniq 5 also includes Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology, which allows the car to deliver up to 3.6kW of power output. The V2L port is found beneath the second-row seats. Another V2L port can be found on the vehicle's exterior near the charging port. Customers can use a converter to power electric equipment such as laptops, phones, and other gadgets.
