Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV To Launch In India Later This Year

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is based on the unique E-GMP electric skateboard platform and is slated to arrive on sale later this year.

The facelifted Creta is anticipated to be released in the coming months, while the upgraded Venue has already been spotted testing abroad. Both SUVs will be designed using the current Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy, which is heavily influenced by the fourth generation Tucson marketed in overseas markets.

In India, Tucson is set to get a big redesign later this year. Following the market debut of the Kia EV6 crossover next month or in June 2022, we brought you the first exclusive spy photographs of the Ioniq 5 recorded on camera on public roads, and it appears that the electric model could also see the light later this year in India.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 are also built on the E-GMP skateboard architecture and have garnered positive reviews in international markets. The Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s first dedicated all-electric vehicle, similar to Kia’s EV6. It might be imported into the country via the CBU (Completely Built-Up) route, and depending on buyer reaction, it could be assembled locally.

However, no formal information has been released. The Ioniq 5 will be part of the South Korean automaker’s aim to debut at least six new electric vehicles in India by 2028. The Ioniq 5 is based on the 45 EV concept and sports a retro-inspired design rather than a futuristic style.
