Hyundai unveiled the IONIQ Concept Cabin.
Hyundai plans to use the interior space and power supply capacity of EVs to integrate home electronics and appliances in its future IONIQ models, all customizable.
The IONIQ Concept Cabin made in partnership with LG Electronics provides a hint of what’s possible in EV interiors. For example, “Clothing Care” and “Shoes Butler” will allow customers to handle mundane tasks on the go, while they enjoy content on the ceiling-mounted 77-inch flexible OLED screen. The sound is pumped through the speakers in the headrests. In addition, a floor cleaning robot along with the overhead UV LED lights ensures the cabin is kept clean and disinfected.
Hyundai plans to offer those experiences starting with IONIQ 5, a dedicated EV slated for launch early next year.
“The IONIQ Concept Cabin is one of a kind and an unprecedented approach to enhancing customer experience as it can be customized for different needs and lifestyles,” said Wonhong Cho, Executive Vice President and Global Chief Marketing Officer of Hyundai Motor Company. “Dedicated EVs will enable us to revolutionize the experience Hyundai delivers to its customers, empowering them to do more in and out of the vehicles.”
IONIQ vehicles will sit on E-GMP (Electronic Global Modular Platform), Hyundai’s dedicated EV platform.
