The Ioniq 5 is an all-electric hatchback through which Hyundai is introducing the E-GMP platform in India. While the date of launch has not been announced yet, we could expect Hyundai to showcase the car at the upcoming 2023 Auto Expo set to be held from 13-18 January.
Hyundai’s Electric Mobility campaign in India began in 2019 with the launch of India’s first electric SUV – Hyundai Kona Electric. With the introduction of E-GMP to India, Hyundai will be able to provide customers with advanced battery electric vehicles, derived from a platform that is modular, scalable, and versatile. E-GMP will usher in a new league of EVs for the new age customers in India, Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd, said.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 gets a high-speed electric motor that helps it achieve a top speed of 185 km/h. The E-GMP platform allows ‘Ultrafast Charging’ that can charge up to 80 percent in 18 minutes (with a 350 kW DC charger). Internationally, the Ioniq 5 is sold with two battery options – 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh battery packs in RWD and AWD. It is not known yet whether both battery pack options will be made available here.
