Hyundai PH Announces 2023 Ioniq 5 EV Variants, Pricing. Starts At P 3.068M


Ahead of its official Philippine launch in early 2023, Hyundai Motor Philippines (HMPH) has announced the prices of its award-winning EV: the Ioniq 5 EV.

In a break from what other carmakers have been doing (including luxury carmakers), HMPH will be offering the Ioniq 5 EV in not one, but two variants. Both variants have the same trim configuration (GLS) and two-wheel drive; they only differ in the size of their tractive battery. The GLS 2WD S (Standard Range) is priced at P 3.068 million, while the GLS 2WD L (Long Range) is priced at P 3.698 million.


The GLS 2WD S makes 170 horsepower and 350 Nm thanks to its rear-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motor. Mated to a single-speed gearbox, 0 to 100 km/h comes in 8.5 seconds. The onboard 58-kWh battery pack allows a maximum cruising range of 352 kilometers between charges.

Meanwhile, thanks to a larger 72.6-kWh battery, the GLS 2WD L makes more power out of the box: 217 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. It drops its 0 to 100 km/h time to just 7.4 seconds, while also extending the overall range to 481 kilometers.

With reservation books now officially open at all Hyundai dealerships nationwide, HMPH has also revealed the available colorways: Phantom Black Pearl, Cyber Gray Metallic, Atlas White, and Gravity Gold Matte.


Measuring in at 4,635 mm in length, 1,890 mm in width, and 1,605 mm in height, the Ioniq 5 EV is officially classified as a compact SUV. However, thanks to its purpose-built EV platform—the E-GMP—its wheelbase stretches to a mind-blowing 3,000 mm—longer than even the full-sized Palisade SUV.

HMPH says they will package every Ioniq 5 with a portable ICCB or In-Cable Control Box charger. The ICCB is smart enough to facilitate communication between the charging port and the vehicle to ensure safe charging. The automaker says they will also provide alternative solutions including a home-installed wall box for 10x faster charging speeds versus the ICCB (22 kW), EV chargers located at Hyundai dealerships, and even establishment partnerships for complimentary charging.


Once it goes on sale in the Philippines, HMPH will also offer a 5-year / 200,000-kilometer bumper-to-bumper warranty, while the high-voltage battery has an 8-year / 160,000-kilometer warranty. Finally, the Ioniq 5 will come with a 5-year / 75,000-kilometer free PMS package.

    1. The Kona EV just discreetly disappeared from the local market.

    2. A batch of 3 units (from what I remember) was brought in. Quickly snapped up. After that, they quietly discontinued it. Clearly, it was just a marketing gimmick from the previous distributor.

    3. So they actually sold it to solidify their claim that they are the first to introduce full EV here in PH market.

  3. I rode this model in Busan yesterday from the Gimhae airport to Haeundae Beach, Dec. 18, 2022. I saw it accelerate without effort to 130 kph. Very quiet. Spacious boot. It held two large suitcases side by side.
