    After winning several international awards and accolades post its global debut in 2021, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 has finally gone on sale in India. Being locally assembled, this all-electric offering wears an aggressive introductory price tag of Rs 44.95 lakh (ex-showroom), making it considerably cheaper than the fully-imported Kia EV6, which is built on the same platform. 

    Globally, the Ioniq 5 is available with either all-wheel drive (dual motor set-up) or rear-wheel drive (single motor set-up) and is offered with either 58kWh or 72.6kWh battery. For India, the Ioniq 5 comes with the larger 72.6kWh battery and as rear-wheel drive only.

    Considerably very expensive than any similar ICE car of same size and 5 seater. It's the electric iteration of a Creta in real Indian terms and it's at least 3 times more expensive on road than the Creta and given India's poor infrastructure and high taxes, no thanks, even if push comes to shove I'll not buy it...

    Isn't it available globally with a 77 kWh battery pack and the Indian battery pack is from an older generation?

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
