The Ioniq 5 will come in to lure the premium segment of buyers. In this article, we have discussed our expectations of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 price and some details.

Prices and expectations

Hyundai Ioniq-5 price expectations

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will enter the market as a premium, luxurious electric SUV. We expect that it might be priced between Rs 50 lakhs to Rs 60 lakhs (ex-showroom). As far as launch is concerned, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is expected to see a launch by the end of this year. Currently, there is no direct competitor to this SUV in its segment. However, by the time Ioniq 5 steps into the market, Kia would have already launched its premium electric SUV, the EV6. Ioniq 5 will thus clash with the EV6.
