2022 Ioniq 5 sports electric crossover prototype capturedAugust 13, 2020
A prototype of the Ioniq 5 electric crossover was spotted at the German Nürburgring race track. The camouflaged novelty has good performance. The debut of the crossover is scheduled for next year.
We now know that Hyundai wants the Ioniq to become its sub-brand, under which the South Korean brand’s electric vehicles will be exclusively released. One of the first models of the new brand will be the production version of the previously shown concept Hyunai 45 (pictured below) – the new product will receive the designation Ioniq 5. This will be the first model released under the new brand, and judging by what we know about it, it should become a big hit.
The Ioniq 5 will be the first of five Ioniq vehicles. It is known that the model will be built on the new E-GMP platform and will cost about $ 45,000 in the minimum configuration
The crossover should also offer better performance than the current Hyunai Kona Electric SUV, which costs less than $ 40,000. Unlike the electric SUV, which is only front-wheel drive, the upcoming Ioniq 5 is likely to be all-wheel-drive, and judging by how its prototype performed on the Nürburgring, the model could offer some decent performance.
In this video, we see the upcoming Ioniq electric crossover undergo high-speed testing on a German race track. We can’t argue, but judging by how fast it is capable of cornering, it appears to be much faster than the aforementioned Kona electric crossover.
Following the debut of the Ioniq 5 in 2021, it will be followed by the Ioniq 6 (production version of the Prophecy Concept), and the third model of the green sub-brand will be the Ioniq 7, a larger crossover that has not yet been announced by the concept. But before these two models are introduced, Hyundai needs to focus on fine-tuning the Ioniq 5 and if the brand does it right, it has a very high chance of success for an electric crossover.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the first test drive was given to the Hyundai i20-based crossover. The Korean automaker is testing a new budget crossover. The brand is preparing an urban model especially for its customers in Europe.
