SINGAPORE, March 30, 2023 – Hyundai Motor Company will be kicking off their full start of sales for the made-in-Singapore IONIQ 5 on 31 March, where drivers will be able to purchase the car across both online and offline channels.

As a start, the company will be launching a unique online sales platform available via Hyundai.com/sg. With a view to creating a seamless EV ownership experience for drivers here, the company is also introducing initiatives aimed at making EV ownership more hassle-free, including a newly-launched IONIQ Care+ app to offer more personalized support to drivers on their EV journey.
The IONIQ 5 will be amongst the first made-in-Singapore EVs produced at the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center in Singapore (HMGICS), the country's first and only EV production smart facility. Car prices start at a Singapore-dedicated price to meet the needs of the market and Cat A Certificate of Entitlement (COE) requirements. This is in a bid to offer broader options and cater to Singapore customers’ varied preferences across both COE categories A and B.
IONIQ 5: Embodying comfort, personality and power
The IONIQ 5 will be available to Singapore in multiple colours, 2 batteries options, and 4 trim options.
- Exterior colours available: Midnight Black Pearl, Titan Grey Metallic, Optic White and Magnetic Silver Metal
- Interior colours available: Black Monotone and Dark Pebble Grey
- Battery options available: Standard Range 58 kWh or the Long Range 77 kWh

All cars feature leather-wrapped steering wheels with quick access button, and seats are covered in eco-processed leather.
