Selling price of Hyundai Ioniq 5 is cheaper than Kia EV6

The Ioniq 5 is expected to cost between 45 lakh – 50 lakh which is significantly lower than its cousin the KIA EV6. The latter is priced from Rs 59.95 lakh – Rs 64.95 lakh (old showroom, Delhi).

According to sources, the main reason for the cuts is that Hyundai will assemble in India using CKD (complete knockdown) kits at its facilities in Tamil Nadu. Kia EV6 was brought back in the form of imported complete units (CBU). CKD and SKD units (sold as complete units) are subject to customs duties of 15 and 30% respectively, while CBU imports are subject to a hefty 60% customs duty.

Another reason could be while that While offering the EV6 in rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, Hyundai only offers the Ioniq 5 in a rear-wheel drive setup. Additionally, the Ioniq 5 has a slightly smaller battery – 72.6 kWh – while the EV6 has a 77.4 kWh battery pack.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is also available with a single-engine setup that produces 217 hp and 350 Nm of torque. However, the Kia EV6 is available with a single-engine setup producing 229hp and 350Nm, as well as a dual-motor setup producing 325hp and 605Nm of torque.

Hyundai Ioniq 5: rival in India

The Ioniq 5 will compete with its sibling – the EV6 – although it will be significantly cheaper. It will also compete with Charger Volvo XC40, priced at Rs 55.90 lakh (old gallery, Delhi). Although not a direct competitor, but Mini Cooper SE will also see competition from the Hyundai EV as the former is priced at Rs 50.90 lakh (former showroom).
