First Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV teasers reveal concept car looks, generator capability

Numerous retro cues right here.


We already knew Hyundai’s upcoming Ioniq 5 electrical automobile would look quite a bit just like the superior 45 EV idea from 2019. However on Tuesday, Hyundai launched the primary official teaser photographs of the Ioniq 5 and it seems to be practically an identical to that retro idea. That is an excellent factor.

The three pictures present the entrance and rear views of the Ioniq 5, in addition to a close-up of the wheel. In entrance, the Ioniq 5 has a extra conventional bumper design with low-set intakes, however in any other case it is simply as angular because the 45, with sq. LED lights shrouded by a clear panel that is like a helmet visor. Rather than the idea’s light-up emblem there is a chrome badge on the nostril and the Ioniq 5 is the primary Hyundai to make use of a clamshell hood design.


Try these superior pixel lights.


On the rear there is a extra advanced diffuser, however in any other case it is identical to the 45. The Ioniq 5 retains the idea’s pixel-style LED taillights, that are additionally positioned behind a clear cowl that mirrors the one on the entrance. The Ioniq 5 seems to have a barely taller and boxier greenhouse than the 45 idea, however in any other case the proportions look spot on.

The Ioniq 5 shall be obtainable with 20-inch wheels, a primary for a Hyundai EV, and so they have an unbelievable directional design. The gray physique cladding on the wheel arches has some fascinating slashes and the cladding extends to the facet skirts and bumpers to present the Ioniq 5 a barely crossover-ish vibe. I am a fan of the green-ish, cream-ish matte paint, too.


These are the biggest wheels ever fitted to a Hyundai EV.


The Ioniq 5 shall be obtainable with cameras rather than rear-view mirrors, like the Honda E and the Euro-spec Audi E-Tron. Do not count on these to be obtainable within the US, although — a minimum of not at first — as a result of authorities laws nonetheless do not enable that kind of tech for use on American roads. Whereas Hyundai hasn’t launched any inside teasers but, the Ioniq 5 ought to have a minimal, fashionable design scheme, with a large infotainment display sitting atop the sprint.

The Ioniq 5 will experience on Hyundai Motor Group’s new E-GMP platform, which is about to underpin 23 new electrical fashions over the subsequent 5 years. Hyundai says that EVs on the brand new platform will recover from 310 miles of vary on the European WLTP take a look at cycle, and 600-volt functionality permits fees from 0% to 80% in simply 18 minutes (or a acquire of 62 miles in simply 5 minutes). The E-GMP platform is rear-wheel-drive primarily based, however all-wheel drive may also be provided. Not too long ago leaked specs present the Ioniq 5 shall be obtainable with a number of battery pack sizes, a max vary of 345 miles and a 0-to-62-mph time of 5.2 seconds.

One new function that Hyundai is touting for the Ioniq 5 is its Automobile to Load (or V2L) functionality. The Ioniq 5 has a 3.5-kW onboard generator that may energy all kinds of kit. A sequence of teaser movies reveals the Ioniq 5 on a tenting journey, the place it powers all the pieces from a treadmill to a sound system and even an oven roasting a turkey. 

Hyundai says the Ioniq 5 will make its full debut in February and count on much more teasers earlier than then. The Ioniq 5 ought to go on sale within the US within the second half of the yr, adopted by plenty of different Ioniq-branded EVs.
