The car was presented to SRK to commemorate his 25-year association with Hyundai.

Hyundai has handed over the keys to the 1,100th unit of the Ioniq 5 to Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, to commemorate his 25-year association with the brand.

The partnership between Hyundai and Shah Rukh Khan has been one of the longest in the industry. The carmaker decided to celebrate this long-standing relationship with the superstar by presenting him with the Ioniq 5, which also happens to be SRK’s first electric car.

The Ioniq 5 was launched at Auto Expo 2023. It is sold alongside the Kona Electric. The Ioniq 5 is based on the E-GMP platform that is shared with the Kia EV6. It is powered by a 72.6 kWh battery pack offering an ARAI-certified range of 631 km on a single charge. The car comes with a rear-mounted electric motor that makes 216 BHP and 350 Nm. It also supports 800V fast charging, which can charge the battery from 10-80% in 18 minutes.

“I am honoured to receive the all-electric SUV Hyundai IONIQ 5. This is my first ever EV and I am glad it is a Hyundai,” Shah Rukh Khan said after receiving the keys to the Ioniq 5. “The year 2023 has been truly remarkable for Hyundai as well as for me. The love we have mutually received from the people of India is our driving force in the industry. IONIQ 5 is a delight to look at with its unique design and exceptional features. It is unbelievable that this EV marvel by Hyundai has surpassed its expectations and sold over 1000 units this year,” he added.
