Hyundai has dropped the price of entry to its Ioniq 5 electric SUV by $7500 for 2024.
UPDATE, 06/12/2023 – Hyundai Australia has since increased the asking price of the two base-model Ioniq 5 variants by $500. A Hyundai Australia spokesperson confirmed this is due to increased production costs.
The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 5 Standard Range is now priced at $65,000 before on-roads, and the Ioniq 5 Extended Range AWD is now priced at $$71,000 before on-rodas.
The new Standard Range RWD makes the Ioniq 5 eligible for electric car subsidies and stamp duty exemptions in more states and territories, and brings it more closely into line with the base Tesla Model Y ($65,400 before on-roads) on price in Australia.
Across the range, the new Ioniq 5 features a heat pump HVAC system, along with battery heating and pre-conditioning. The new features are designed to make the Ioniq 5 more efficient in a broader range of conditions.
Hyundai is anticipating it’ll have stronger supply of the Ioniq 5 in 2024, along with its Ioniq 6 sibling.
The brand anticipates it’ll sell up to 4000 cars with Ioniq badges next year, of which around two thirds will be the Ioniq 5.
Some dealers will also have demonstrator cars for the first time since the car launched. Fixed pricing remains in place, however.
