Hyundai Reveals Its First IONIQ EV Model With A Futuristic, Sleek Crossover SUV

Feb 25, 2021

Though Hyundai has already used its IONIQ moniker — a combination of the words “Ion” and “Unique” — for an existing sedan, the South Korean company announced in August of 2020 that it would be rolling out a new vehicle brand by the same name. Fast forward six months to today and Hyundai has now pulled the cover off of the first official production-ready vehicle from its new EV offshoot with the IONIQ 5 crossover SUV.

The all-electric model boasts an incredibly futuristic design with a sleek visual theme that includes flush door handles, neo-retro LED lighting front and back, Rotiform-esque wheels, and a plush and thoroughly modern interior with two generously sized color displays set behind the steering wheel and in the center of the dash. Utilizing the Korean firm’s existing E-GMP platform, the IONIQ 5 will reportedly offer nearly 300-miles of autonomy on a single charge. Though pricing has yet to be announced, we anticipate the MSRP falling between the $40 and $50,000 marks when it arrives at dealerships later in 2021 as a 2022 model year vehicle.
