Hyundai postpones the debut date of the new Ioniq 5January 28, 2021
The automaker had previously posted a video announcing the debut of its new electric car, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, but later strange things began to happen to it.
Just a few days ago, speedme.ru reported that the world debut date for the Hyundai Ioniq 5 was set for February 2. This was discussed in a video on the Hyundai Motor Group Youtube channel. However, today we noticed that the video is not working (marked as private) and there is a new video posted on Hyundai Worldwide Youtube channel. It now says “Mid February”. But later this video was also blocked, leaving us completely bewildered.
Recall that Ioniq 5 is built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). It will also become the basis for all future electric vehicles of the brand. At the same time, the company relies on the so-called Parametric Pixels. The company noted that the individual lighting elements at the front and rear of the model were inspired by “the smallest digital image unit.” It’s about pixels. The U-shaped DRL lights and the four rounded rectangles on the rear optics also refer to the pixels, giving the vehicle a stylish look.
It is noted that the new Ioniq 5 will be the first model of the brand to be based on the E-GMP platform, and will receive a flat battery hidden under the car floor. E-GMP implies a rear-wheel drive and one electric motor, but as a crossover, the Ioniq 5 will come standard with an electric motor on the front axle. The architecture also allows the model to be equipped with fast charging, which can extend the range by 100 km in just 5 minutes, and according to recent rumors the Ioniq 5 will have a maximum range of 550 km.
It is impossible to judge the design of a novelty based on teasers. The front end seems surprisingly short and suggests a spacious interior. The back of the novelty seems to have been created in a slightly retro style. The model is an interesting combination of design features.
