Hyundai Ioniq 5 ASEAN Tour Concludes in Vietnam

Hyundai’s “Go Far with Zero Worries” Ioniq 5 ASEAN Tour was successfully completed in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, after 11 days and 3,197 km of travel across five Southeast Asian countries.

The excursion demonstrated the long-distance, eco-friendliness, and dependability of the Ioniq 5 EV. According to Hyundai, the actual distance traveled was 446 km greater than what was originally estimated. The automaker further stated that the total cost of charging for the trip was only $116 (approx Rs 32,400) per car, making electric vehicles roughly twice as economical as internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

“Hyundai is fuelled by an unwavering commitment to innovation and shaping the future of mobility – a commitment that reverberates in every action we take. Our dedication to making electric vehicles more accessible as the definitive clean mobility solution of tomorrow has taken a giant leap forward. Witnessing the tremendous success and excitement generated by the Ioniq 5 ASEAN Tour, we are propelled to intensify our comprehensive innovation aimed at fortifying the EV infrastructure and ecosystem across the region. The journey may have concluded, but the electric excitement has just begun.”

There were five Ioniq 5 units in the convoy that left Singapore and traveled via Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and eventually Vietnam. Of these, two were made in Indonesia and the other three in Singapore. They were joined by participants from Hyundai, the Association of Singapore (AAS), local community influencers, and key opinion leaders.

According to Nithi Thuamprathom, an influencer who joined the tour from Hat Yai, Thailand:

“Being part of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 ASEAN tour has exceeded all my expectations! I am convinced that electric vehicles, particularly the IONIQ 5, are the future of transportation. This transformative tour removes my anxiety about Ev’s capabilities, conclusively proving that EVs not only cover long distances but do so with such style, comfort, and reliability.”

Fitra Eri, an influencer and automotive expert from Indonesia, commented:

“As the first proud owner of the Ioniq 5 in Indonesia, my electric vehicle journey shattered the anxiety about city limits. This tour not only confirmed that beyond urban boundaries, we experienced zero worries and unmatched convenience during long-distance drives with the Ioniq 5 crossing borders of different countries, but it also erased anxieties about finding charging stations. We arrived at our destinations rejuvenated, waking up to a fully charged vehicle the next morning.


Even during the challenging stretch from Cambodia to Vietnam, where charging stations are limited, the Ioniq 5 showcased an impressive range, boasting around 50% battery life remaining. This journey emphatically validates the tour’s slogan, ‘Go Far with Zero Worries,’ underscoring the pivotal role of electric vehicles in shaping the future of transportation. Importantly, it signals that the ASEAN region is ready for future electrification.”
