When the Ioniq 5 crossover is fully unveiled next week, it will be Hyundai’s first electric vehicle built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The platform has a discharged battery which Hyundai takes advantage of to optimize the cabin, which it shows in this quick teaser. The center console is a little different than what you may be used to, redesigned as an island that can move around, while the two front seats include legrests so you can relax while the vehicle charges. .
The mobile console apparently allows entry from either side so that you can easily move around the vehicle without a problem and Hyundai also highlights the materials used, like an ‘eco-treated leather which is dyed and treated with extractions of linseed vegetable oil. Like other manufacturers, Hyundai has big plans for electric vehicles, and the Ioniq 5 is only the first of this range, with a 6 and 7 should be launched in 2022 and 2024.
