Hyundai’s 45 Concept made waves back in 2019 at the Frankfurt Motor Show for the vehicle’s linear crispness accompanied alongside the aspirational promises of an all-electric future. Fast forward to 2021 and the brand has kept the ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ of the monocoque-style body and a futuristic interior mostly intact in the form of the new IONIQ 5.
The IONIQ 5’s pure design is a refreshing take on electric vehicles, stripping away complexity to celebrate clean lines and minimalistic structures. The unique clamshell hood spans the entire width of the car, minimising panel gaps for a clean, high-tech look. The LED lighting showcases its signature Parametric Pixels – unique jewel-like design elements that will feature on the exterior of all future IONIQ models.
The IONIQ 5 is one of the few in its category with an 800V battery system. It charges ultra-fast, performs consistently high, and is optimised for weight and space.
Eco-materials are extensively used in the interior of the IONIQ 5. For example, raw materials extracted from sugar cane are used on the headliner, carpet and seat covers. A solution that is both recyclable and beautiful.
