Last month, Hyundai teased its Ioniq 5 EV and it looked like it airdropped straight from the future and now, the Korean carmaker has taken the wraps off the production version of the Ioniq 5. It was first showcased in concept form as the 45 Concept two years back. It is the first-ever electric mid-sized crossover from the car manufacturer and based on the OEM’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) architecture. The Ioniq 5 price in the European market will be $51,100.
Design Specifications of Hyundai Ioniq 5
Upfront, you are greeted with an array of pixel-inspired lights which if anything, look super sharp, neat and futuristic.
The hood has all but 2 sharp lines which taper in between the pair pixel headlights on either side, which is then continued in the opposite direction, till the bumper, making it stand out. The lights themselves are solid quadrilateralish, with no curves whatsoever. The front sets the tone just perfect.
The sides are flanked by a set of massive 20” wheels. Yes, 20, the biggest ever on a Hyundai Electric vehicle! It gets cladding on the arches with the alloy design further reminiscing the parametric pixel design language. The rear is the same story. It somehow looks a tad bit taller and boxier from the rear. The taillights are a solid rectangle with a pair on either side.
