The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 launched- from RM199k

Good news for the EV enthusiast, Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has unveiled its latest electric model, the Ioniq 5 Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV), with innovative and sustainable features that are set to redefine the electric mobility lifestyle in Malaysia.

The new all-electric CUV comes in three variants, namely Lite, Plus, and Max. All three variations of the IONIQ 5 provide outstanding range, fast charging and a top speed of 185 km/hr. It is the second electric vehicle (EV) to be rolled out in Malaysia by HSDM, after the successful debut of the Kona Electric last year.

Jeffrey Gan, Managing Director, Retail and Distribution of Sime Darby Motors Malaysia, said: “Hyundai is paving the way for affordable EV ownership. There will be more EVs in the line-up by various brands under Sime Darby Motors as we aim to lead in Malaysia’s push towards low carbon mobility with a suite of products, services and capabilities across the automotive value chain to support the country’s electric vehicle (EV) plans.” 

According to Low Yuan Lung, Managing Director of HSDM, “The Ioniq 5 is selling very well in most countries and we are confident that this futuristic-designed all-electric CUV will appeal to Malaysians too. It is definitely the ultimate electric CUV to own with its best-in-class performance, range, complete safety features including the Smart sense suite and an ultra-fast charging speed.”

The Ioniq 5’s Lite and Plus 2-Wheel Drive (2WD) variants are equipped with a 58 kWh battery pack while the Max All-Wheel Drive (AWD) variant provides a longer range with a 72.6 kWh battery pack. 

Built on Hyundai’s dedicated Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) architecture – Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the Ioniq 5 sports both 400-V and 800-V charging infrastructures. The platform offers 800-V charging capability as standard, along with 400-V charging, without the need for additional components or adapters. With a 50-kW DC charger, the Ioniq 5 can charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 47 minutes. A standard 11 kW home AC charger can charge from 0% to 100% in 6.1 hours.

It also comes with advanced connectivity and driver assistance features that will offer the ultimate in-car experience while ensuring optimum safety.

The Ioniq 5’s unique exterior design is a redefinition of the Hyundai Pony’s timeless design, that has a profile of over a 3,000-mm wheelbase.
