The New IONIQ 5 Introducing the IONIQ 5


The future of electric mobility is here.

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 CUV will put you in charge – without compromise, helping you to decide about your way of life and your impact on the world.

Electrifying design

Inspired by the futuristic design of the Concept 45 EV, the sleek sensuality of the IONIQ 5 is homage to Hyundai’s design heritage, reimagined for the future.

The E-GMP platform

Enjoy faster charging, increased driving range, better handling and more interior space – thanks to Hyundai’s ground-breaking new Electric Global Modular Platform.

Smart living space

Thanks to our dedicated Electric Vehicle platform, we have been able to create an interior that is a whole new in-car experience – redefining living space and moving space.

Bold. Unique. 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.

Bold and bright in the back

The innovative LED lighting design can be found in the back as well, with IONIQ 5’s signature Parametric Pixels highlighted in the unique rectangular rear light signature.​

From night to bright in 256 pixels

See and be seen – the crown jewels of the iconic front-end presence are the distinctive LED headlamps with their 256 cubic pixels.

Exclusive 20" alloy wheels

The aero-optimised wheels further echo the design theme, exuding an exclusive electric flair, harmonising beautifully with the sleek profile.

Innovative use of environmentally friendly materials

Environmentally friendly materials are used extensively in the IONIQ 5, like eco-processed leather and recycled yarn. What’s more, raw materials extracted from sugar cane are used on the headliner, carpet and seat covers. A solution that is both recyclable and beautiful. The innovative use of natural materials is another contribution to sustainability in our manufacturing processes, making the IONIQ 5 less reliant on oil-based products.

Spacious, sustainable living

Inside the IONIQ 5, the lines between living space and moving space are being blurred. Our new Electric Vehicle platform gave us the opportunity 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.

Relaxation seats

Sliding centre console

Customise the interior layout to your needs. You can slide the centre console back to the rear seats, so your kids can use it as a picnic table or desk.

Wide-screen digital cockpit

The 12.3” infotainment screen is seamlessly integrated with the 12.3” cluster for a high-tech look that comes standard – for easy access to all driving, safety and infotainment functions.

Highly adjustable front seats.

New Platform

Leading the charge into the electric era with E-GMP

IONIQ 5 is the first vehicle built on Hyundai’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This dedicated battery electric vehicle platform enables faster charging, increased driving range, more interior space and better handling. The battery pack’s position within the wheelbase ensures ideal weight distribution between the front and rear and a low centre of gravity for improved handling performance.

​A modular concept

E-GMP accommodates a wide range of vehicle types, driving distances, and lifestyles through a standardized battery system equipped with technology optimized for Electric Vehicles.

​Electric Performance

E-GMP embraces unique Electric Vehicle design characteristics such as short overhangs and a long wheelbase with collision safety, maximised passenger space, and battery safety.​

More room for passengers

E-GMP enables the creation of innovative interiors designed uniquely for Electric Vehicles to provide a new electrified mobility experience for our customers. The space-consuming AC system has been moved from inside the car to the extra space created by replacing the engine with an electric motor – leaving more room for passengers in the front.

More legroom

The low-mounted battery and the flat floor from removal of the centre tunnel result in much more legroom for passengers.

​Flexible seat arrangements

The flat floor also allows front and back seats to be arranged in numerous ways to accommodate lunch breaks and road trips and anything else you'd like to do – providing an innovative electrified experience.
