For the official presentation we have to wait until February, but Hyundai, after announcing its arrival on various occasions, not least that of the presentation of the E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform) electric platform shows the first images of the Ioniq 5.
This is a medium-sized SUV with which the Korean company brings the new brand dedicated to zero-emission cars to its debut. To mark the change, the House also focuses on a radical change of course from a stylistic point of view.
Rectangular lights and aerodynamic shapes
Although in the three images released Hyundai aims to show only some details, one cannot notice a design in which there are no elements of kinship with the Hyundai production. The first thing that catches the eye is the light signature. The Ioniq 5 adopts rectangular lights with clear lines that are inspired, according to the designers themselves, by pixels (hence the definition of Parametric Pixel design).
As for the body shapes, the Ioniq 5 shows essential shapes, with a curved hood (which also has an aerodynamic function) and, in the side view, large wheel arches that house 20 “wheels with a particular design, also studied to decrease the resistance to running.
Ha il Vehicle to Load
Style aside, the Ioniq 5 also has interesting features from a technical point of view. First of all at the powertrain level, since it should have a battery capable of guaranteeing a range of up to 550 km and thanks to a quick recharge it can recharge 100 km in just 5 minutes.
The new Korean SUV is also equipped with the interesting feature Vehicle to Load (V2L) which allows you to recharge external devices. Through a dedicated 3.5 kW power socket, in fact, in case of need, it can transfer electricity to laptops, cameras or, at most, even another electric car.
