New Hyundai electric IONIQ 5 was recently unveiled with a completely fresh design where it ideally combines crossover features and body hatchback. The South Korean company wants to raise the bar of electrification even higher and the drive lever for this will be the new IONIQ 5.
Hyundai’s new electric Crossover is 4.64 meters long, and compared to the Tesla Model 3 or a Volkswagen ID.4 offers higher levels of comfort inside thanks to its huge 3,000mm wheelbase. According to the company, the IONIQ 5 passenger space has generous dimensions since adult people will travel with special comfort while the front seats can be converted into comfortable armchairs.
Also the luggage compartment impresses reaching 531 liters.
The exterior design combines the modern and the future with earthy soft lines and appearance acceptable to all but at the same time shows that it will have great resistance to time.
