It's been nearly six months, South Korean auto major Hyundai launched Ioniq 5 in the international market. Now, the car brand has given Ioniq 5 a power bump with a bigger battery pack. Till date, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 was available in two battery pack options - 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh. Now, there will be a third and larger 77.4 kWh battery pack available with the all-electric car.
