2021 Ioniq 5 electric SUV built on the E-GMP platform

Hyundai recently unveiled the IONIQ 5, a midsize SUV that is the first model in Hyundai's new IONIQ battery-electric vehicle line-up.


The IONIQ 5 sets the standard for redefining the electric mobility lifestyle with various ecological and innovative features.

The IONIQ 5 electric SUV is built on Hyundai Motor Group's specialized Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which has distinctive dimensions and a large wheelbase. With E-GMP, the IONIQ 5 offers an innovative interior design with environmentally friendly materials in many touchpoints, strong performance paired with ultra-fast charging and a Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function, and innovative connectivity and driver assistance systems that will provide the ultimate in-car experience while also providing security.

The innovative style of the IONIQ 5 reflects the bold spirit of Hyundai's first manufacturing vehicle, the Pony. It redefines ageless design, a concept that will continue to evolve as the IONIQ line-up expands.

The car's front end has Hyundai's first clamshell bonnet as well as eye-catching V-shaped positioning lights. Pixelated headlights, on the other hand, have distinct daytime running lights (DRLs). These tiny pixel-like clusters may also be found towards the vehicle's back.

The vehicle's front and rear shapes blend at the doors, providing another example of Hyundai's 'Parametric Dynamics' design, which was originally seen on the all-new Tucson.

Auto flush door handles on the sides give a clean surface design and improved aerodynamic efficiency. The powerful C-pillar design, which was inspired by Hyundai's EV prototype, provides the IONIQ 5 a dominating presence that can be seen from afar.

Aero-optimized wheels, which come in a super-sized 20-inch diameter, continue the Parametric Pixel design motif. In addition, customers may pick from nine exterior colors, including five unique to IONIQ 5, nature-inspired hues.

The E-GMP gave IONIQ 5's designers unrivaled creative flexibility in designing a unique and flexible interior. Extra legroom and the spaciousness of a big passenger vehicle in a CUV body type are created by the model's flat floor, where the model's batteries are placed.

Because of the extended 3,000 mm wheelbase, Hyundai designers were able to create an interior with a 'Living Space' concept rather than a traditional vehicle design theme. The Universal Island, for example, is a moveable center console that can be pushed back as much as 140 mm, giving the driver additional freedom of movement within the car.

The IONIQ 5 also has electrically adjustable front chairs that may recline to the occupant's preferred angle, providing a weightless feeling and lower leg support. In addition, the SUV's electrically adjustable rear seats may also be moved up to 135 mm forward and backward.

Many interior elements, such as the seats, headliner, door trim, floor, and armrest, are made of environmentally friendly, sustainably derived materials. Recycled PET bottles, plant-based (bio PET) yarns, natural wool yarns, eco-processed leather with plant-based extracts, and bio paint with plant extracts are just a few examples.

The IONIQ 5 comes in a variety of power electric (PE) configurations to meet the mobility demands of every customer without sacrificing performance. Customers may choose between two battery pack sizes: 58 kWh or 72.6 kWh, as well as two electric motor layouts: one with a rear motor solely or one with both front and back motors. All PE variants have an impressive range and a peak speed of 185 km/h.

According to the WLTP regulation, the IONIQ 5's maximum driving range on a single charge is 481 km when fitted with two-wheel drive (2WD), a 72.6-kWh battery, and 19-inch wheels.

The E-GMP used by the IONIQ 5 can work with both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. Without the need for extra components or adapters, the platform includes 800V ultra-fast charging as standard and 400V charging. With a 350-kW charger, the IONIQ 5 can charge from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes and reach a range of 100 kilometers in less than five minutes.

The IONIQ 5 electric SUV also has a unique V2L feature that allows consumers to use the vehicle's battery to charge electric items like electric bicycles, scooters, or camping equipment. Up to 3.6 kW of electricity can be supplied using the V2L function.

The IONIQ 5 electric SUV seamlessly combines exceptional technologies for a heightened digital user experience. The wide, configurable, dual-cockpit features a 12-inch, full-touch infotainment screen and a hoodless 12-inch digital gauge cluster that can be customized to satisfy customers' needs. For the first time, IONIQ 5 has an Augmented Reality Head-Up Display (AR HUD), basically turning the external world into a display. Drivers can decide to use AR technology to project important information, such as navigation and the car's surroundings.

Hyundai is now introducing the most recent version of its enhanced Bluelink connected car services, which includes several new features and allows customers to operate their vehicle using their smartphone or voice, making driving more easy and pleasant.

The newest generation of Hyundai SmartSense technology, the company's sophisticated driver assistance system, is included in the IONIQ 5, providing the greatest levels of safety and convenience on the road.

The IONIQ 5 is the first vehicle from Hyundai to have Highway Driving Assist 2. (HDA 2). HDA 2 uses a front-facing camera, radar sensors, and navigation data to maintain the vehicle in its lane while controlling speed and following distance. It can also help the motorist while he or she is changing lanes.


Collision avoidance system, blind-spot system, intelligent speed limiter assistant, and driver attention warning are some of the other active safety technologies available.

Hyundai Motor will offer three new dedicated EV models under the IONIQ line-up name over the next two years, beginning with the IONIQ 5 and more innovative models to come, using its industry-leading manufacturing know-how in EVs. Hyundai's aim to lead the worldwide EV industry is accelerated by the introduction of IONIQ, which response to rapidly rising market demand.

The Ioniq 5 electric SUV is available with a starting price of 40,000 euros.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric SUV will combine its latest EV capabilities: ultra-fast charging, luxurious interiors, and battery-supplied power – with newer technologies that incorporate design, technologies, and systems to integrate all-car experiences for a smooth journey
