News Highlights

  • The Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric car is priced at INR 46.05 lakh (ex-showroom).
  • The Ioniq 5 EV was unveiled as a completely knocked down (CKD) unit.

Hyundai Motor India, one of India’s leading manufacturers, has issued a voluntary recall for its tech-loaded Ioniq 5 electric car. The automaker had to recall the Ioniq 5 to rectify a potential malfunction in the car’s Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU). This recall has affected over 1,744 units of the Ioniq 5 EV, and these models were constructed between July 21, 2022, and April 30, 2024. The company introduced the Ioniq 5 in India at the Auto Expo in January 2023. The EV was unveiled as a completely knocked down (CKD) unit. Interestingly, all the Hyundai Ioniq 5 models have now been affected by the recall.

The Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU) aids in powering electric components in the car, including the infotainment system, air conditioning, and seat ventilation. The ICC unit works as a converter to reduce the high voltage from the car’s main battery pack to the secondary 12V battery. The auto giant has announced that it will rectify the faulty unit integrated into the Ioniq 5 models free of charge. The Ioniq 5 owners are advised to contact their nearest Hyundai dealership to inspect if their car is part of the recall. Hyundai will also reach out to Ioniq 5 owners via different communication channels. This new initiative has been taken by the brand to provide its customers with a seamless service.
