This Hyundai EV might soon come to India and it has a driving range of 487 km

Hyundai Ioniq 5 has received an official range of 303 miles (487 km) on a single charge by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The range of the all-wheel-drive variant is a tad bit lower at 256 miles (411 km). With this, it is now confirmed that the Ioniq 5 will nearly match the range of its technical cousin Kia EV6.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the company’s flagship electric car, which has already been unveiled for the global markets. The EV is expected to go on sale by the end of this month.

Keeping the EPA rating in mind, it can be said that the Ioniq 5 has a much better range compared to the Volkswagen ID.4 Pro, Audi RS e-Tron GT, Ford Mustang Mach-E and other long-range electric cars available globally.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a part of the company’s plan to launch 23 electric cars in the next four years globally. Out of these 23, the company has announced that it will launch 16 electric cars in India in the next seven years. While it has not been said if the Ioniq 5 will be brought to the country, various reports suggest that it will be made available alongside the Hyundai Kona.

To recall, the company had showcased its Ioniq 5 flagship EV at the Auto Expo last year.
