Today, the second largest car producer in the country has noted that the Ioniq 5 will be equipped with Hyundai SmartSense Level 2 ADAS features as 21 modern driver-assistive and safety technologies will be involved. Speaking on the announcement, Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO of Hyundai Motor India Limited, said:

“As India’s leading smart mobility solutions provider, we have been relentless in our pursuit of delivering the most cutting-edge and competitive cars that the Indian market has seen. Hyundai IONIQ 5 has become a benchmark amongst Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) across the globe, winning accolades for its advanced technology and capability.”
