An optimistic approach towards economic driving. – Hyundai Ioniq 5
Nepal’s automobile market is currently focused on Electric Vehicles (EV). Adding to the list, Hyundai has brought the all-new Ioniq 5 to encourage economic driving with lower environmental impact.
The escalating petroleum price in recent times has made auto enthusiasts more open to the idea of EVs. Hyundai plans on capitalising on the hype as it is all set for the all-new Ioniq 5’s launch for the first time in Nepal.
Packed with advanced technical features, an attractive exterior and a comfy driving experience. It’s no wonder that the EV is here to compete. Not only with others of its type such as the Tesla Model Y but also SUVs that run on gasoline.
Design and Features
Ioniq 5 has been designed with the intent to break the stereotype. Unlike most electric vehicles in the market, the all-new Ioniq 5 features an aggressive stance while still maintaining a clean geometrical finish. Hyundai has been rather daring with the design this time. Since there’s no internal-combustion engine, electric vehicles get more real estate and Hyundai has taken full advantage of it.
At the first glance, you’ll find the Ioniq 5 spreads a futuristic aura with minimalistic and robotic LED headlamps on both ends. On the other hand, it comes with a spacious cabin and flexible seats that can recline according to one’s comfortability. Other features include a 12-inch infotainment system featuring various AR functions along with driver assistance for precise parking and awareness.
Key-features of Hyundai Ioniq 5:
- Parametric Pixels Lighting
- Futuristic Design
- E-GMP Platform
- 12-inch AI powered Infotainment
- 7 Airbags for Protection
- ABS + ESC + HAC
- Dual Zoned AC
Battery Range and Performance
The entry-level Ioniq 5 comes with a 58kwH battery with a company claimed mileage of 385km. Hyundai also offers a higher variant of the Ioniq 5 with a 72.6 kWh battery that can run up to 481km on a single charge.
Powered by a PMSM (Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor), the Ioniq 5 produces a maximum torque of 350 nm and generates a maximum power of 170PS. If you’re wondering about charging, you’ll get an option to opt-in for a 20kW DC fast charger that can charge from 10% up to 80% within 18 minutes.
Hyundai Ioniq 5 Prince in Nepal
Before setting your expectations, understand that Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 might just be the catalyst of the electric vehicles in Nepal. With that said, expect the new release of Hyundai to be a bit costly, at least in comparison to the regular SUVs in the market.
The price of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 in Nepal is expected to be somewhere around Rs.80 lakhs to Rs.90 lakhs.
Laxmi Intercontinental, the official distributor of Hyundai in Nepal is all prepared for the launch of the new Ioniq 5. Hopefully, the car will hit the showroom within a few months.
