Hyundai IONIQ 5 Launched In Malaysia From RM198,888
The all-electric Hyundai IONIQ 5 has debuted in Malaysia and the pricing is actually pretty attractive.
With the government putting in measures to promote the adoption of electric vehicles in Malaysia, car brands are ramping up launches of such vehicles locally. Hyundai was the first to jump on the trend with the Kona Electric, which was launched last year with pricing between about RM150,000 and RM200,000, depending on specification. Today, the same brand is taking its second step into the EV space with the highly-anticipated IONIQ 5.
The IONIQ 5 arrives in Malaysia in three specifications, mirroring what was available with the Kona Electric. There’s the base model Lite, the mid-spec Plus and the full-spec Max. Pricing is as follows:
- IONIQ 5 Lite – RM199,888
- IONIQ 5 Plus – RM229,888
- IONIQ 5 Max – RM259,888
Pricing is on-the-road without insurance, exempt from sales tax, import and excise duties, and road tax. Book it online here.
The standard vehicle warranty is just 2 years/50,000km and the EV battery warranty is 8 years/160,000km.
Here are the optional packages:
- Extended warranty and service packages: RM10,000. This package will upgrade the standard warranty to 5 years/100,000km* and service maintenance for 3 years/50,000km*. The EV battery warranty will remain unchanged.
- 7kW AC charging station with standard installation** at RM6,000.
- 22kw AC charging station with standard installation** at RM7,000.
The IONIQ 5 Lite and IONIQ 5 Plus are rear-wheel drive models with a smaller 58 kWh battery pack that returns between 336km and 384km of range. This single-motor variant has an output of 168 horsepower and 350Nm of torque and it has a 0-100km/h time of 8.5 seconds. Charging this system up from 0-100% over 11kW AC takes 5 hours.
There’s also the IONIQ 5 Max and this one comes with all-wheel drive and two motors that draws power from a 72.6 kWh battery pack. This version should return between 370km to 460km of range and it has a power output of 302 horsepower and 605Nm of torque, lending it a 0-100km/h time of 5.2 seconds. Charging this system from 0-100% over a 11kW AC Charging takes 6.1 hours.
All Hyundai IONIQ 5 models are built on the E-GMP chassis with 400-V and 800-V support. This means that charging the battery from 10%-80% using 50kW DC Quick Charging takes 47 minutes or just 17 minutes if done with a 350kW DC Quick Charger.
