The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be updated with a larger 77.4 kWh battery pack.
We are the first to tell you that the Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric vehicle (EV) is poised to lead India. Nah! It will come to our market in the second half of this year and it turns out that the EV will be updated just before its debut in India. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 currently on sale worldwide will come with a larger battery pack as part of a mid -cycle update. Obviously, there are other smaller updates as well for the new model year, but the new 77.4 kWh battery pack remains the most important of them all.

The 77.4 kWh battery pack replaces the 72.6 kWh battery pack on the current model and sends power to all four wheels, while there is also a smaller 58 kWh battery pack that will be carried over the basic rear-wheel drive (RWD) variant. The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 with a larger battery pack will also receive a power boost of around 11 bhp and will have enough juice for the claimed 507 km distance on full charge, according to the WLTP cycle. However, we still do not have any confirmation on whether Hyundai India will consider a larger 77.4 kWh battery pack version for our market or stick with the previous 72.6 kWh battery pack option.

The updated Hyundai Ioniq 5 will also be updated with new battery heating and air conditioning features. It adjusts the temperature of the car battery to support optimal charging conditions while on the go. Basically, it keeps the car more ready to charge, thus improving charging performance in both hot and cold weather conditions. This feature is activated automatically when a fast charging point is inserted into the car navigation system. Later, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 also saw the addition of digital interior and exterior rearview mirrors as well as a panoramic roof.
