Hyundai is transforming the Ioniq into its own EV sub-brand
It will dispatch the Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6 and Ioniq 7 EVs beginning in 2021.
Hyundai has declared that it will change the Ioniq name utilized for its flow EV into the Ioniq sub-brand committed to every single electric vehicle. That implies Ioniq could turn out to be a lot of like to Hyundai what Polestar is to Volvo.
Hyundai uncovered designs to dispatch three EVs under the new brand, beginning with the Ioniq 5 out of 2021 and the Ioniq 6 and Ioniq 7 booked for 2022 and 2024, individually.
In Hyundai’s new naming plan, odd-numbered vehicles speak to hybrids or SUVs, while even-numbered models will be sedans.
The Ioniq 5 will in this way be a crossover (appeared above, at right) and dependent on Hyundai’s rakish Frankfurt Motor Show idea, the retro-styled, Pony-roused 45 EV. As Autoblog called attention to, the Ioniq 5 may have just been found in testing, and keeping in mind that vigorously disguised, it looks to some extent like the idea vehicle.
In the interim, the Ioniq 6 (upper left) depends on the Prophecy, a dangerous idea vehicle that Hyundai said would in the end be created in some structure.
At long last, we’re seeing a bother of the Ioniq 7 just because. Hyundai said it will be a “large SUV” and the outline shows a thin Rivian-like light that covers the front of the vehicle, alongside side lights that may utilize a similar spot lattice tech highlighted on the 45.
All the vehicles will utilize Hyundai’s E-GMP electric vehicle stage imparted to Kia’s electric vehicles. Like with different EVs, E-GMP keeps the powertrain beneath the floor, opening up what Hyundai calls a “‘smart living space’ with highly adjustable seats, wireless connectivity and unique features such as a glove box designed as drawers.” It additionally said that infotainment and run showcases will be “simple, intuitive and ergonomically designed.”
The flow Ioniq model comes in EV, PHEV and half and half forms and will continue independently from the Ioniq brand with the flow models: Ioniq Hybrid, Ioniq Plug-In and Ioniq Electric.
Hyundai couldn’t hold a live dispatch occasion for the new brand because of the pandemic, yet it tried to make a sprinkle. To commend, it added some electric lights to the London eye to change it into a mammoth “Q.” We’ll no uncertainty hear more about the forthcoming vehicles throughout the next year.
