Hyundai teases the Ioniq 5

It's a midsize crossover, based on Hyundai 45 EV Concept.

After the showcase of the 45 EV Concept in 2019 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Hyundai has finally released teaser images and advertisements for the first vehicle of the Ioniq brand.

The Ioniq 5 exhibits the 'Parametric Pixel' - a design language of the Ioniq brand. Hyundai states that this design language will fuse the analog and the digital age, harmonizing the past, the present, and the future.

The side mirrors are replaced with cameras, similar to Audi's e-tron. The Ioniq 5 features a clamshell hood for the first time in Hyundai's history and comes with 20-inch rims - the largest rim size of all Hyundai electric vehicles.

The body length of the Ioniq 5(4640mm) is similar to the Tucson(4630mm), but the Ioniq 5 has a much larger wheelbase. (3000mm(Ioniq 5) vs. 2755mm(Tucson))

The Ioniq 5 is built on Hyundai Motor Group's E-GMP platform, which will be exclusively used for the electric vehicles of Hyundai and Kia Motors. Hyundai claims that the E-GMP platform is made for maximum interior space and safety and features a modular concept to fit with various types of body style.

The Ioniq 5 have 800V ultra-fast charging support that allows the car to be charged from 10% to 80% within 18 minutes, and be able to drive 100km after five minutes of charging. A solar roof is also equipped for additional charging and elongated range.

Featuring V2L technology, the Ioniq 5 supports 110V/220V charging of external devices from in and outside of the car. It can output 3.5 kW of electricity.

Currently, the first edition model of the Ioniq 5 is available for pre-order in Europe, powered by 313ps 58kWh dual-motor battery and a four-wheel drive drivetrain that enables the car to reach 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and travel up to 450 km on a single charge (WLTP standard).

The car's worldwide release is set to be in February.
