The interior color is “Dark Teal”, which is exclusive to the limited edition model. The price is 6,195,000 yen for the former and 6,290,000 yen for the latter.
Introducing new services for new vehicles
In addition to the Ioniq 5 to be sold in the future, Hyundai Mobility Japan also announced that it will add and apply the new car service “Hyundai Assurance Program” to models sold after May 2022.
The Hyundai Assurance Program consists of two services: “Healthcare” and “Style Care”. Healthcare is a program designed to check the health of the vehicle and help people spend their car life with peace of mind, and Style Care is a service to eliminate worries and anxieties about scratches and damage to the vehicle body.
As for healthcare, Hyundai bears the statutory basic inspection fee for the first and second years after new vehicle registration, the basic vehicle inspection fee and final inspection fee for the third year, and the continuous registration fee. At the time of vehicle inspection in the third year, the low-conductivity “battery coolant” dedicated to EVs will be replaced free of charge.
In Style Care, when the vehicle is damaged, the target parts (bumper, door mirror, windshield, up to two tires) are repaired free of charge (one of them per year, up to a maximum of 100,000 yen per year).
