VIDEO: Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 electric crossover is coming soon with a teaser.
Hyundai announces that the Ioniq 5, the first vehicle in a brand new “zero emission” range, named Ioniq after the name of the electric compact currently in the catalog, will be unveiled in early 2021. This small SUV, close to a compact sedan in terms of proportions, will be derived from the concept car 45 presented in 2019.
On this occasion, the South Korean manufacturer is publishing a short “teaser” dedicated to its next creation. This does not show anything of the vehicle but rather announces the qualities promised by it.
Hyundai begins by announcing “more power for life”. It’s a reference to the Ioniq 5’s two-way charging capabilities, so it will be able to supply a network or even an external device with electricity just like some other battery-powered vehicles. “More time for you” then promises a high charging speed. The Ioniq 5 will be based on Hyundai’s new E-GMP modular platform and the Asian firm is talking about the possibility of filling 80% of the battery in 18 minutes, thanks in particular to a voltage of 800V. Finally, “Extraordinary Experiences” announces numerous functionalities but we will have to wait a little longer to know the details.
Hyundai should not be long in showing more of them, the marketing of the car is fast approaching. The Ioniq 5 will be followed by the Ioniq 6 sedan and then the Ioniq 7 SUV, all 100% electric.
