Hyundai broke the record for the Ioniq 5 electric SUV last November. It started on November 18 from the automaker’s corporate headquarters in Gurgaon, Haryana. Ioniq 5 explores the wonders of India including statues of the Golden Temple, Taj Mahal, Khajuraho Temples, Nalanda, Konark Sun Temple, Hampi and Gomteshwara.

The Ioniq 5 electric SUV is based on Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which also underpins the Kia EV6. It measures 4,635mm long, 1,890mm wide and 1,625mm high. The wheelbase is 3,000mm.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 gets its energy from its 72.6 kWh battery pack. According to ARAI certification, the high-capacity battery can help electric vehicles travel more than 630 kilometers on a single charge. A single PMS electric motor is capable of producing 214 bhp of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. Hyundai claims it can charge an EV from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes using a 350 kW DC charger.

Hyundai has kept the style of the Ioniq 5 with a mix of modern and vintage elements. There’s a parametric Pixel LED headlight and flip-up bonnet up front, with auto-flush door handles and active aero alloys on the sides, and parametric Pixel LED taillights at the rear. The interior features a 12.3-inch digital cluster and touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ventilated seats, and more. EV also offers V2L or vehicle-to-load technology, allowing it to double as a charger for other EVs or electronics and appliances.
