Hyundai revealed a teaser video for the upcoming IONIQ 5, the first dedicated EV in the new IONIQ lineup brand launching in early 2021.
Based on Hyundai’s ‘45’ EV concept, IONIQ 5 will be the first car mated with the recently revealed Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), a dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) architecture.
The teaser aims to build anticipation about IONIQ 5 by emphasizing three ‘extras’ to be offered by the all-new model. ‘Extra Power for Life’ calls attention to IONIQ 5’s vehicle-to-load (V2L) bi-directional charging capability. ‘Extra Time for You’ highlights its fast-charging capability. ‘Extraordinary Experiences’ hints at the BEV’s soon-to-be-announced array of features.
The video’s release follows Hyundai’s announcement, made in August 2020, that it will launch a dedicated BEV lineup brand IONIQ. Under IONIQ, Hyundai will launch a range of EVs, including IONIQ 5, a midsize CUV in early 2021; IONIQ 6, a sedan; followed by IONIQ 7, a large SUV.
