Hyundai To Launch Ioniq 5 Electric Crossover In January 2023 | V3Cars
Hyundai are all-set to launch the Ioniq 5 electric crossover in January 2023. Hyundai are likely to locally-assemble the Ioniq 5 to keep the price aggressive against its CBU sibling — the Kia EV6. We can expect Hyundai to bring the Ioniq 5 with the smaller 58kWh battery pack.
The Ioniq 5 takes inspiration from Hyundai’s first production car, the Pony. It gets a squared-off front and rear profiles, making it look a lot smaller than it actually is. For instance, the length, width and wheelbase of the Ioniq 5 are more than that of the outgoing Tucson. Thanks to the e-GMP skateboard platform, the front and rear overhangs are short. The Ioniq 5 also gets a very unique design for the alloy wheels and flush-fitting door handles.

On the inside, the Ioniq 5 offers a generous amount of space. The movable centre console helps in better space management whereas the lack of a centre tunnel helps improve knee room for front passengers. 2 connected LCD screens sit at the top half of the dashboard whereas the AC controls sit on the lower edge.
