On Wednesday, Hyundai presented the first teaser images of their upcoming CUV in the middle class, Hyundai Ioniq 5. The car is the first in the company’s new dedicated car brand for electric cars.
Ioniq 5 will also be the first model based on Hyundai’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) developed for the next generation of battery cars. Ioniq 5’s design promises “parametric pixels”, the smallest device for digital imaging, as well as environmentally friendly “color material finish” (CMF).
At the front, the Ioniq 5 will use arrays of pixel-inspired lights and the model will be the first Hyundai car with a hood that covers the entire width of the car to minimize gaps between panels. The wheels must also be optimized for air resistance and a diameter of 20 inches means the largest rims that the company has mounted on an electric car.
The car must be able to drive more than 100 km in just five minutes of charging. Hyundai, on the other hand, keeps the range and additional information secret ahead of the virtual world premiere in February 2021. In 2022, Hyundai is also expected to show off the sedan model Ioniq 6, followed by a large SUV, Ioniq 7, which will be launched in 2024.
