Hyundai Ioniq 5 launched in Nepal

Hyundai has launched the Ioniq 5, a much anticipated EV, in Nepal.The Ioniq 5 comes in two variants: the GLS Vison Roof and the GLS Solar Roof, at a starting price of Rs 80.96 lakh.

Since the revelation of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 in early 2021, the EV has been creating a buzz around the world, largely on account of its Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) technology, eco-friendly interiors, ultra-fast charging capability, and vehicle-to-load (V2L) feature. 

Get to know more about the vehicle:


The Ioniq 5 has a unique exterior design characterised by clean and sharp lines. Among the lights, both the headlamps and rear lamps feature parametric-pixel lighting. The premium EV comes with soft, eco-friendly leather upholstery for the seats, steering wheel, and doors. Above the well-designed cabin sits a solar roof or a vision roof that provides a greater sense of openness.

The dashboard has a mounted 12.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system  (compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto) featuring satellite navigation, bluetooth connectivity, a DAB radio, and a wireless charge-pad. 


The Ioniq 5 is powered by a 58 kWh lithium-ion battery mated to a permanent-magnet synchronous motor that is capable of producing 100kW of power and a torque of 295 Nm. The vehicle provides a range of 365 km on a full charge.

The Ioniq 5’s battery charges pretty quickly and offers an increased driving range, and the new E-GMP allows for more interior space and better handling. The EV is compatible with 400 V and 800 V charging infrastructure.

The battery pack’s position within the wheelbase ensures ideal weight distribution between the front and rear and a low centre of gravity for improved handling performance.

The Ioniq 5 can charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes via a 350 kW charger. According to the WLTP, the vehicle only needs to charge for five minutes to get 100 km of range.
