The Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric SUV is very close and shows its interior for the first time … with sliding center console!

Hyundai continues to reveal new images and details of the Hyundai IONIQ 5, the first model of its sub-brand of electric cars IONIQ, whose exact filing date has already been revealed: it will be the next 23 of February.

But to open your mouth, in addition to the shadows teaser del exterior shown last month, the brand has now advanced the first snapshot of the interior of the imminent new electric SUV coupe.

The most striking thing without a doubt is that it will have a sliding center console, dubbed ‘Universal Island’ (‘Universal Island’ in Spanish), which slides together with the passenger seat forward or backward. In this way, “the driver and passengers of the IONIQ 5 can freely enter and exit the cabin from either side when it is parked in a narrow space,” says the brand.

In other words, the Korean firm proposes thus saying goodbye forever to those ‘locked up’ that prepare the bad and uncivil drivers who park their vehicles next to ours, sticking their passenger door so much to ours of the driving position that access is impossible. Sound like it, right?

All this is possible thanks to the global modular electrical platform (E-GMP) on which it is based, allowing to house a flat battery and resulting in “personalized mobility with flexible configurations to comfortably accommodate both passengers and cargo”, in the words of Hyundai.

Sustainable materials in the interior and double screen in the ‘Mercedes style’

The seats of the IONIQ 5 are electronically adjustable and additionally the thickness has been reduced of the front seats by about 30% in order to provide more space in the rear, explains Hyundai.

For the preparation of the cabin have been used ecological and sustainably sourced materialssays the brand.

For example, the seats are lined with eco-processed leather dyed and treated with extracts of linseed vegetable oil, and the rest of the elements of the cabin have fabrics derived from sustainable fibers, such as the biocomponents of sugar cane, wool and polyester threads, or materials woven with fibers from PET plastic bottles recycled.

Surfaces such as the dashboard, buttons, steering wheel and door panels are coated with a biological paint made of polyurethane composed of rapeseed and corn flower oils, the firm asserts.

But on the dashboard, beyond its materials, the screens used for the dashboard and the infotainment system stand out. Both seem to be united forming a single unit, in the style of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, A class, CLA The Class Bas well as the new Opel Mokka-e.

And it is no secret that Hyundai already dreams of increasing the size of the screen of its cars until reach a dreamlike 77 inches, although at the moment he has a long way to go. In this sense, huge screen of meter and a half long of Mercedes-Benz EQS is for now the reference, at least until the future arrives Cadillac Lyriq or the Byton M-Byte.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 could reach up to 800 km of autonomy and promises to accept battery recharges with powers of up to 350 kW and 800 V voltage. Figures that translate into going from 10 to 80% of its charge capacity in just 18 minutes using a charger such as those of IONITY. Also, in less than five minutes of charging will recover 100 km autonomy.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 can be reserved online from February 23 in some European markets, among which Spain is not found.
