SEOUL: Hyundai Motor Company recently launched the IONIQ 5 midsize CUV during a virtual world premiere event.
As the first model in Hyundai’s new IONIQ brand dedicated to battery electric vehicles (BEV), IONIQ 5 sets the benchmark to redefine the electric mobility lifestyle with sustainable and innovative features.
IONIQ 5 is built upon Hyundai Motor Group’s dedicated BEV architecture called Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), enabling it to have unique proportions on an elongated wheelbase.
With E-GMP, IONIQ 5 offers innovative interior design with eco-friendly materials in many touchpoints, strong performance mated with ultra-fast charging and a Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function as well as advanced connectivity and driver assistance features that will offer the ultimate in-car experience while ensuring safety.
“IONIQ 5 will accommodate lifestyles without limits, proactively caring for customers’ needs
throughout their journey,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Marketing Officer.
“It is truly the first electric vehicle to provide a new experience with its innovative use of interior space and advanced technologies.”
“A new mobility experience for the next generation—this was the mission from the first day we began this project, to look ahead towards the horizon, but stay fundamentally Hyundai,” said SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center.
