Hyundai is one of the leading car manufacture in India and the world. They have a variety of products in their portfolio including electric vehicles. They are one of the leading manufacturers who is working on electric vehicles as well. In India, Hyundai launched Kona EV couple of years ago and they have other electric car models in the international markets too. Another product that Hyundai is considering to launch in Indian market in Ioniq 5 electric car. The car has been featured in upcoming Superhero movie Spider-man: No way home and here we have a TVC for the same.
The video has been shared by Hyundai USA on their YouTube channel. As per the TVC, Hyundai Ioniq 5 has been used in the upcoming superhero movie. Hyundai Ioniq 5 was first previewed as a concept car at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show. It was then known as 45 EV concept car. The production version of Ioniq 5 was revealed to the world earlier this year. In comparison to any other Hyundai models in the market Ioniq 5 has a very unique design to it.
It has a very sharp looking design to which is normally not seen in a Hyundai. It has a sleek looking front grille with LED lights in it. The tail lamps are all LED and it has a typical crossover or SUV like design to it. The car comes with very unique looking wheels. The pattern on the wheels are actually similar to the one seen on the concept. Hyundai Ioniq 5 is built on dedicated electric skateboard platform which is actually one of the biggest advantages for this EV.
Due to the electric skateboard platform Ioniq 5 has a modular interior design. Some of the advantages include flat floor, flexible seats that can slide and reclined. Even the center armrest console on the Ioniq 5 can slide back and forth. The same can be seen in the video as well when Spider-Man sits in the car. The cabin has a very minimalistic design and feels very airy.
Another good thing about Ioniq 5 is that it uses several recycled materials in it. Hyundai has used recycles bottles and paperette materials for the seats and door pads. Like any other Hyundai car, Ioniq 5 offers large touchscreen infotainment systems. In this case there are two 12 inch fully digital screens. One is the entertainment screen while the other is the instrument cluster.
Hyundai is also offering features like BlueLink connected car features, head-up display, ADAS and so on. Hyundai offers Ioniq 5 in two powertrain options. There is a 169 Ps 350 Nm single motor version that powers the rear wheels and a dual motor AWD version generating 306 Ps and 605 Nm of peak torque. It is available with two batter pack options too. The 72.6 kWh battery pack has a claimed range of 481 kms or 300 miles. The smaller 58 kWh battery pack has a claimed range of 385 kms or 240 miles.
If Hyundai is considering to launch Ioniq 5 in India, it is likely to happen sometime in 2022. Just like Kona EV, Inoiq 5 will also be brought via CBU route and that means, it is going to be an expensive car. There are possibilities that it might be pricier than the Kona EV.
