New Delhi: Hyundai Motor Company on Thursday unveiled the first teaser image of IONIQ 5 midsize CUV, the first model in its IONIQ dedicated BEV lineup brand. It will make its debut at a virtual world premiere event in February 2021.
IONIQ 5 will be the first vehicle mated with Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).
The image reveals some of the signature design elements, which include parametric pixels, the smallest unit of digital imaging.
The front-end features arrays of pixel-inspired lights suggestive of the digital technology within. IONIQ 5 is also the first Hyundai vehicle to feature a clamshell hood that spans the entire width of the car, thus minimising panel gaps and creating a clean overall look.
Aero-optimised wheels further echo the parametric pixel design theme. The wheels have a super-sized 20-inch diameter, the largest rims ever fitted to a Hyundai EV.
“IONIQ 5 presents an all-new customer experience through innovative EV design that is evocative of the icon that established Hyundai’s design DNA,” SangYup Lee, senior vice president and head of Hyundai Global Design Center, said.
“Beginning with IONIQ 5, our dedicated BEV lineup brand will redefine the relationship between people and their cars, establishing a new standard against which all BEV design experiences will be measured,” he said.
Hyundai Motor has also released four teaser videos, each presenting viewers with a sneak peek at IONIQ 5’s core technologies.
Three ‘Ultimate Camping’ videos showcased IONIQ 5’s Vehicle to Load (V2L) technology that functions as a general power supply (110/220V). The ‘5 Min Challenge’ video highlighted IONIQ 5’s ultra-fast charging capability that enables it to drive more than 100km with a 5-minute charge (WLTP Standard).
