A new standard has been set.
Welcome to a new era of Electric Vehicles.
The IONIQ 5 marks the beginning of a new era of clean mobility for Hyundai. Blurring the line between digital and analogue, the new battery-electric midsize SUV is the flagship model behind Hyundai’s new signature dedicated EV architecture. This is just a small taste of what’s to come in the new IONIQ range.
With the IONIQ 5, future mobility will no longer be something to look forward to, but a reality of everyday life. This ground-breaking electric SUV will put you in charge – without compromise, helping you to decide about your way of life and your impact on the world.
The estimated launch date for IONIQ 5 in New Zealand is in the 2nd half of 2021.
IONIQ 5’s unique exterior design is characterised by clean and sharp lines, creating a sleek and sophisticated look.
IONIQ 5’s distinctive and innovative design provides a unique experience that can only be enjoyed in dedicated BEVs, suggesting a fundamental shift in design approach.
Its front end is adorned with arrays of pixel-inspired lights suggestive of the digital technology within.
Distinctive. Iconic. Pure
The IONIQ 5’s pure design is a refreshing take on electric vehicles, stripping away complexity to celebrate clean lines and minimalistic structures. The unique clamshell hood spans the entire width of the car, minimising panel gaps for a clean, high-tech look. The LED lighting showcases its signature Parametric Pixels – unique jewel-like design elements that will feature on the exterior of all future IONIQ models.
Spacious, sustainable living
Inside the IONIQ 5, the lines between living space and moving space are being blurred. Our new EV platform allowed us to re-create the interior as a whole new in-car experience. A larger flat floor, highly adjustable front seats that can be fully reclined, and a flexible centre console that can be moved throughout the cabin make for an extraordinary experience.
The model’s modular dashboard includes a 12-inch full-touch infotainment screen exempt of hard buttons and a hoodless 12-inch digital gauge cluster that displays EV-related information while driving, such as battery status and nearby charging stations. Adjacent to the digital gauge cluster is a metal insert that can accommodate a multi-purpose tray holder.
One of the clear demands was the need for more eco-conscious mobility solutions with lower environmental impact. Designers addressed these concerns through IONIQ 5’s use of eco-friendly and sustainably sourced materials.
The seats are clad in eco-processed leather that is dyed and treated with plant oil extractions from flaxseed.
Other soft furnishings throughout the cabin consist of textiles derived from sustainable fibres such as sugar cane bio components, wool and poly yarns, as well as material woven from fibres made from crushed used PET plastic bottles.
Surfaces such as the dashboard, switches, steering wheel and door panels are coated in a polyurethane bio paint composed of oils from rape flowers and corn.
