The Ioniq 5 will thus be a crossover (shown above, on the right) and based on Hyundai’s angular concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, 45-EV inspired by Pony. like autoblog stressed, Ioniq 5 may have already been seen in the test, and while it is highly camouflaged, it has only a passing resemblance to the concept vehicle.
Meanwhile, the Ioniq 6 (upper left) is based on Prophecy, a sliding concept car that Hyundai said would eventually be produced in some form. Finally, we are seeing a tease of Ioniq 7 for the first time. Hyundai said it will be a “big SUV”; and the illustration shows a slight Rivian-like light covering the front of the car, along with side lights that can use the same dot matrix technique shown in 45.
All vehicles will use the Hyundai E-GMP electric vehicle platform shared with Kia electric vehicles. As with other EVs, the E-GMP holds electricity under the floor, opening up what Hyundai calls a “smart living space” with highly adjustable seats, wireless connectivity and unique features such as a glove box designed as drawers. He also said the infotainment and screens will be “simple, intuitive and ergonomically designed”.
The current Ioniq model comes in EV, PHEV and hybrid versions and will continue separately from the Ioniq brand with current models: Ioniq Hybrid, Ioniq Plug-In and Ioniq Electric.
Hyundai was unable to hold a live launch event for the brand new due to the pandemic, but tried to make a splash. To celebrate, she added some electric lights to the London Eye to turn it into a “Q.” giant. We will definitely hear more about upcoming vehicles over the next year.
