Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 have both been launched in the Indian car market.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 are direct rivals in the electric vehicle space in India. While both Ioniq 5 and EV6 are based on the e-GMP or Electric-Global Modular platform which lays the foundation for electric-only models from the Koreans, these particular electric cars will now compete for attention in what is still a rather small EV market here.

While Kia EV6 was launched in India in 2022 and comes in via the import route, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 was officially launched at the Auto Expo in January of 2023 and is brought in via the CKD or Completely Knocked Down route. This allows Hyundai to position the Ioniq 5 far more attractively in terms of pricing. At launch, the Ioniq 5 was at 45 lakh for the first 500 bookings and is now at 46 lakh (ex-showroom). In contrast, the Kia EV6 is significantly more expensive at 61 lakh (ex-showroom).
