IONIQ: Hyundai’s EV-dedicated line-up brand
In 2020, Hyundai Motor Company launched its IONIQ line-up brand, which is dedicated to battery electric vehicles, opening a new chapter as a leader in the era of electrified mobility. With the IONIQ line-up brand, Hyundai will offer customer centric EV experiences centred on connected lifestyle solutions in line its ‘Progress for Humanity’ company vision.
Under the IONIQ line-up brand, Hyundai Motor will leverage its industry-leading manufacturing know-how in EVs to introduce three new dedicated models over the next few years, starting with IONIQ 5, with more innovative models to follow. The creation of IONIQ is in response to a fast-growing market demand and accelerates Hyundai’s plan to lead the global EV market.
To fulfil IONIQ’s mission, Hyundai will combine its current EV capabilities – such as ultra-fast charging, spacious interiors, and battery-supplied power – with future innovations that combine design, technologies and services to integrate in-car and out-of-car experiences for a seamless journey.
IONIQ will change the paradigm of EV customer experience. With a new emphasis on connected living, we will offer electrified experiences integral to an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Rebirth of IONIQ
Hyundai first introduced the term IONIQ, which fuses “ion” and “unique”, when it announced Project IONIQ, a long-term research and development project focused on eco-friendly mobility. Based on the project, in 2016 Hyundai introduced a vehicle named IONIQ. This was the world’s first and only model to offer a choice of three electrified powertrain options – hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid and battery electric – within a single body type. Now, the name IONIQ represents Hyundai’s growing commitment to sustainability and innovation and will be instrumental in achieving the company’s clean mobility goals.
The IONIQ line-up brand was conceived to fuse life changing mobility with environmental performance and has so far been a key factor in Hyundai in delivering electrified progress. IONIQ will continue to create a new balance in clean mobility synchronising eco-products within an eco-system of lifestyle solutions, bringing connected living to a new generation.
IONIQ 5 / IONIQ 6 / IONIQ 7
Hyundai will launch a range of numerically named EVs under the new line-up brand, with the even numbers used for sedans and the odd numbers for SUVs.
IONIQ 5 is the first model under the IONIQ line-up brand. It is based on the concept EV ‘45’, which Hyundai unveiled at the International Motor Show (IAA) 2019 in Frankfurt as a homage to its very first concept car.
In the near future, Hyundai will introduce the IONIQ 6 sedan, which is based on the company’s latest concept EV ‘Prophecy’, unveiled in March 2020; followed by IONIQ 7, a large SUV, later.
Likewise, IONIQ vehicles’ designs will have a common theme of ‘Timeless Value’. The vehicles will be inspired by past models, but they will be a bridge to the future.
Reinforcing Hyundai’s commitment to clean mobility
The launch of the IONIQ line-up brand dedicated to EV models reinforces the company’s commitment to clean mobility and reflects its ongoing transformation to a Smart Mobility Solutions Provider with zero-emissions solutions.
Introducing Hyundai’s new platform: E-GMP
IONIQ 5 is the first model to be equipped with Hyundai Motor Group’s new dedicated battery-electric vehicle (BEV) Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). E-GMP will serve as the core technology for Hyundai’s next-generation BEV line-up.
Designed exclusively for BEVs, E-GMP provides various advantages compared to the Group’s existing platforms, which have each been engineered predominantly to accommodate internal combustion engines. As demonstrated by IONIQ 5, its benefits include increased development flexibility, powerful driving performance, increased driving range, strengthened safety features, and more interior space for occupants and luggage.
E-GMP is the culmination of years of research and development and brings together our most cutting-edge technologies. Our BEV line-up will evolve and be strengthened by this innovative new platform.
Maximising development flexibility through modularisation and standardisation
E-GMP reduces complexity through modularisation and standardisation, allowing rapid and flexible development of products which can be used across most vehicle segments, including sedans, SUVs and CUVs – such as IONIQ 5. Moreover, flexible development can satisfy various customer needs for vehicle performance.
In coming years, E-GMP will be highly effective in expanding the Group’s EV leadership position as it will enable the company to enlarge its BEV line-up over a relatively short period through modularisation and standardisation.
Designed for driving performance, safety and maximised space
E-GMP is engineered to offer improved cornering performance and driving stability at high speed. This is due to optimal weight distribution between front and rear, a design which enables a low centre of gravity thanks to its low-mounted battery pack, and the adoption of electric motors located in the space previously occupied by an engine.
The high-speed electric motor raises the driving performance of E-GMP vehicles like IONIQ 5. A five-link rear suspension system, which is typically used for mid- and large-sized vehicle segments, and the world’s first mass-produced integrated drive axle (IDA), which combines wheel bearings with the drive shaft to transmit power to the wheels, enhance ride comfort and handling stability.
The platform secures battery safety through a battery support structure made of ultra-high strength steel. Hot-stamped steel components surround this structure for additional rigidity. Collision energy can be absorbed efficiently thanks to energy-absorbent sections of the body and chassis, effective energy load paths, and a central section of the battery pack tightly bound to the vehicle body.
Moreover, by strengthening the structure of the load support section, located in front of the dashboard, engineers have been able to minimise collision energy to the power electric system and battery. The A-pillar’s load distribution structure also prevents deformation of the passenger cell.
IONIQ 5 exhibits how E-GMP maximises interior space through its long 3,000 mm wheelbase, short front and rear overhangs and slim cockpit module. The slim cockpit was made possible through the rearrangement of HVAC components. With the battery pack mounted beneath the floor, the E-GMP creates a flat floor for the cabin. This provides more legroom for passengers, while enabling various arrangements for the front and rear seats.
The battery pack itself – mounted between the front and rear axles – is the most power-dense system that Hyundai Motor Group has ever created. This is partly thanks to its enhanced cooling performance, a result of a new separate cooling block structure which helps make it more compact. With energy density enhanced by around 10 per cent compared to existing EV battery technology, the battery packs in models such as IONIQ 5 are lighter, can be mounted lower in the body, and liberate more cabin space.
Multi- (800V and 400V) and bi-directional charging system
Most existing EVs and the fast-charging infrastructure provide 50 ~ 150 kW charging for EVs equipped with a 400V system; however, the development of 800V infrastructure, with up to 350 kW charging, will gradually enable even more fast charging.
E-GMP offers ultra-high-speed 800V charging capability as standard and is also capable of mainstream 400V fast charging without the need for additional components or adapters. In fact, IONIQ 5’s multi-charging system is a world-first patented technology. Using the vehicle’s inverter, a 400V charge is converted into 800V so that it can be stored in the battery.
IONIQ 5 is capable of achieving 481 km (WLTP) with a fully charged battery, thanks to the E-GMP. Moreover, with high speed charging, it can charge up to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes, which can add up to 100km of driving range in just five minutes.
Unlike previous BEVs, which were only capable of one-way charging, the E-GMP’s charging system is more flexible. The E-GMP’s newly developed Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU) represents an upgrade from existing on-board chargers, which typically only allow electricity to flow in a single direction from an external power source.
The ICCU enables the Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function seen in IONIQ 5. V2L can discharge energy from the vehicle battery without additional components. This enables BEVs based on the E-GMP to operate other electric machinery (110 / 220V) anywhere, and the system can even be used to charge another EV. The new V2L function can supply up to 3.6 kW of power, which is enough to operate a mid-sized air conditioner unit and a 55-inch television for up to 24 hours.
E-GMP to underpin future EV sales growth worldwide
The E-GMP will underpin Hyundai Motor Group’s plans to introduce a total of 23 BEV models, including 11 dedicated BEV models by 2024, starting with the three dedicated BEVs under the IONIQ line-up brand: IONIQ 5, 6 and 7. The company also plans to sell more than one million BEVs worldwide by 2025.
IONIQ 5: a new era for EV design
IONIQ 5’s progressive design represents a departure from past norms, exploring a new design freedom offered by a dedicated BEV platform. By evoking the daring attitude of Hyundai Pony, the company’s first production car, IONIQ 5 highlights Hyundai’s 45-year journey to become a part of customer’s lifestyles, creating a common thread from past to present and future. This is the redefinition of timeless design, a theme that will expand as the IONIQ line-up grows.
IONIQ 5’s unique exterior design is characterised by clean and sharp lines, creating a sleek and sophisticated look. The BEV’s precisely modelled surfaces and shapes give it an angular, almost geometric appearance. In addition, Hyundai’s designers integrated cutting-edge Parametric Pixel lights on the front and rear. This unique design element signifies Hyundai’s intent to fundamentally reinvent electric mobility with an EV-specific design that will carry over to future IONIQ models.
A new mobility experience for the next generation – this was the mission from the first day we began this project, to look ahead towards the horizon, but stay fundamentally Hyundai. IONIQ 5 is the new definition of timeless, providing a common thread linking our past to the present and future.
The front of the car is equipped with Hyundai’s first clamshell hood that minimises panel gaps for optimal aerodynamics. The front bumper is defined by an eye-catching V-shape. Meanwhile, pixelated headlamps incorporate distinctive daytime running lights (DRLs) that provide an unmistakable light signature unique to IONIQ 5. These small pixel-like clusters also appear at the rear of the vehicle.
On the sides, auto flush door handles provide clean surface styling and enhanced aerodynamic efficiency. The front and rear forms of the vehicle merge together at its doors, offering another example of Hyundai’s ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design first seen on the all-new TUCSON. The strong C-pillar shape, inspired by Hyundai’s ‘45’ EV concept, gives IONIQ 5 a commanding presence clearly identifiable from a distance.
Aero-optimised wheels further echo the Parametric Pixel design theme and are offered in a super-sized 20-inch diameter, the largest rims ever fitted to a Hyundai EV. These complete IONIQ 5’s perfected proportions, made possible by Hyundai’s E-GMP.
IONIQ 5’s crossover body type achieves unique proportions and short overhangs due to its elongated wheelbase. Measuring 4,635-mm long, 1,890-mm wide and 1,605-mm tall on a 3,000-mm wheelbase, IONIQ 5 offers D-segment-like space in a midsize CUV.
Customers can choose from nine exterior colours, including five nature-inspired, new hues exclusive to the model. These include two options with a matte finish: the hero colour Gravity Gold Matte and Shooting-Star Gray Matte, along with Digital Teal-Green Pearl, Mystic Olive-Green Pearl and Lucid Blue Pearl.
- Gravity Gold Matte [Launch colour]
- Shooting-Star Gray Matte
- Digital Teal-Green Pearl
- Mystic Olive-Green Pearl
- Lucid Blue Pearl
- Atlas White
- Galactic Gray Metallic
- Cyber Gray Metallic
- Phantom Black Pearl
Interior design: a Smart Living Space
IONIQ 5 sets itself apart from other midsize CUVs, especially those with internal combustion engines and conventional shift-by-wire systems, because the E-GMP enables a flat floor where the model’s batteries are stored, allowing for innovative interior design and extra legroom.
IONIQ 5’s 3,000 mm wheelbase offers spaciousness of a large passenger car in a midsize CUV. The long wheelbase allowed Hyundai designers to apply a ‘Living Space’ theme to the interior, rather than a conventional car design theme.
The ‘Living Space’ theme runs throughout the interior. One feature which embodies this is the Universal Island, a moveable centre console that can slide back as much as 140 mm. The Universal Island complements the simple centre fascia with gear selector located behind the steering wheel. The sliding console allows passengers to not only enjoy more flexibility, but also freely enter and exit the cabin on either side when parked in a narrow spot. Second-row passengers also can enjoy centre console features, such as cup holders, a fast wireless phone charger, and USB ports. The Universal Island truly redefines the centre console, offering greater functionality than a static storage box.
IONIQ 5 is also equipped with electronically adjustable front seats. When parked, the seats can recline to the optimum angle, offering a weightless feeling for the occupant. Hyundai reduced the thickness of the front seats by 30 percent, providing more space for those seated in the second row. This allows passengers to customise the interior space according to different needs and situations.
The optional Vision Roof of IONIQ 5 provides the interior with a greater sense of openness as IONIQ 5’s ceiling consists of one large glass panel without any support materials.
IONIQ 5 provides 527 litres of cargo space, which increases to 1,587 litres when the second row seats are fully folded. For added versatility, the second row seats can slide forward up to 135 mm and can also be folded down in a 6:4 ratio. Meanwhile, customers can enjoy additional storage space with a “frunk” (front trunk) that offers up to 57 litres of capacity.
The model’s modular dashboard includes a 12-inch full-touch infotainment screen free of single-function buttons, as well as a hoodless 12-inch digital gauge cluster. The cluster displays EV-related information while driving, such as battery status and the location of nearby charging stations. Adjacent to the digital gauge cluster is a metal insert that can accommodate a multi-purpose tray holder. As this is metallic, magnets can be used to pin objects such as pictures, for example. IONIQ 5’s infotainment system is the first to integrate a new design theme called Jong-e Graphic User Interface that offers various interior ambience settings, such as “soft”, “delicate” and “exuberant”.
Customers can stay warm during the winter months by taking advantage of the heated steering wheel and heated front seats. IONIQ 5 also features a high-efficiency heat pump system, which improves climate control inside the vehicle. This ensures efficiency of heating when outside temperatures are low, and supports the regular cooling system when air conditioning is on.
The interior has three colour options. The base pack includes Obsidian Black and Dark Pebble Gray/Dove Gray, while the optional colour pack offers Dark Green/Dove Gray.
Sustainable, eco-friendly features accommodate lifestyles without limits
IONIQ 5’s demonstration of environmental responsibility doesn’t stop with electrification. It offers a bridge to the future of electric mobility that is technologically advanced, eco-friendly and plugged into today’s customers’ needs. Sustainability is at the centre of IONIQ’s vision, which can be found throughout IONIQ 5 in eco-friendly materials and colours. This will redefine electric mobility lifestyles.
Many of IONIQ 5’s interior touchpoints – seats, headliner, door trim, floor and armrest – use eco-friendly, sustainably sourced materials. These include recycled PET bottles, plant-based (sustainable PET) yarns and natural wool yarns, and eco-processed leather with plant-based extracts.
IONIQ 5’s crash pads and door trim contain sustainable materials extracted from sugar cane. Sugar cane is also included in the sustainable PET carpet, floor mats and headliner. Meanwhile, the door trims, switches and modular crash pads also include sustainable materials from a plant-based oil extracted from rapeseed and corn. The doors also feature the Paperette as décor. Paperette is a durable, lightweight material made from recyclable components and an example of Hyundai’s designers utilising the circular economy.
IONIQ 5 can also be equipped with an optional solar roof, which improves energy efficiency by providing an additional power source. This can prevent battery discharge and therefore extend the driving range by more than 1,500 kilometres per year, depending on the local sun exposure where the customer lives.
Hyundai’s commitment to marine protection with Healthy Seas: supporting local communities to help them develop in a sustainable way through the circular economy
Hyundai Motor recently partnered with the ocean conservation organisation Healthy Seas to combat ocean pollution, nurture sustainable marine ecosystems, and support a circular economy. Furthermore, Hyundai shows its commitment to the circular economy by cooperating with Healthy Seas’ partner Aquafil, and plans to use ECONYL®, a regenerated yarn made from recycled fishing nets and other nylon waste, in its products.
As a company leading the way in clean and future mobility solutions, cleaning up and preventing marine pollution aligns with Hyundai’s global strategy. Through this collaboration with Healthy Seas, the company will be not only be providing a cleaner environment for generations to come but also shaping sustainable futures for the communities it works with.
As a purpose-driven company, Hyundai understands that recycling and sustainability aren’t trends, but rather a need for our society. Through our progressive, inclusive, and responsible spirit, we are committed to the development of a sustainable society. This is why our strategy tackles environmental problems head on and works with communities to safeguard a sustainable future.
Healthy Seas’ activities include recovering lost or abandoned fishing nets from the seas, organising environmental education programs in schools and collaborating with fishermen, fish farms and local communities to support the responsible disposal of fishing nets and other marine waste. Through its actions, Healthy Seas strives for a healthy marine ecosystem and a sustainable future.
Working with a network of partners, Healthy Seas ensures plastic waste is recycled into new materials in a circular economy. Reclaimed fishing nets and other nylon waste are transformed by Aquafil into ECONYL®, a regenerated nylon yarn that can, in turn, be used to make new sustainable products. IONIQ 5 features floor mats developed using ECONYL®. For future models, Hyundai is looking for even more opportunities to integrate eco-friendly materials into its models.
Hyundai’s main role in the partnership is supporting Healthy Seas with funding, so complex clean-up activities can come to fruition. The first project recently took place in Ithaca, Greece, with Hyundai helping Healthy Seas with its biggest clean-up initiative in the organisation’s history. During the event, several tonnes of abandoned fishing nets were recovered with the goal to leave nothing but clean seas and coastlines behind.
V2L, ultra-fast charging and charging networks
IONIQ 5’s E-GMP can support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. The platform offers multi-charging capabilities, with 800V charging as standard, along with 400V charging without the need for additional components or adapters. With a 350-kW charger, IONIQ 5 can charge from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes.
IONIQ 5 users only need to charge the vehicle for five minutes to get 100 km of range, according to WLTP.
IONIQ 5 provides an innovative Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function, which allows customers to freely use or charge any electric devices, such as electric bicycles, scooters or camping equipment, serving as a charger on wheels.
The V2L function can supply up to 3.6 kW of power, enabling IONIQ 5 to operate other electric machinery (110 / 220V) anywhere. The V2L port is located under the second-row seats, and it can be activated when a vehicle is on. Another V2L port is located at the charging port on the vehicle exterior.

Hyundai Bluelink® Connected Car Services
With IONIQ 5, Hyundai is offering the latest version of its upgraded Bluelink® Connected Car services that deliver a range of new features and allows customers to control their car with their smartphone or voice to make their drive more convenient and enjoyable. New Bluelink® features include Connected Routing, Last Mile Navigation and a new User Profile feature.
IONIQ 5’s cloud-based Connected Routing feature calculates driving routes on a powerful server inside the Bluelink® cloud environment. This ensures more accurate traffic forecasting, more precise times of arrival, and more reliable route calculation. With IONIQ 5, the database has been increased to show more charging stations on the map, showing availability and estimated charging time. By clicking on the station icon on the map, users can see whether AC, DC or ultra-fast charging, such as IONITY, is available.
The Bluelink® app displays the vehicle’s range, battery state and charging times when plugged into public or private charging points. Customers can access an advanced battery management system in order to select charging times that best fit their schedule or their budget by making the most of off-peak electricity rates.
IONIQ 5 drivers can start and stop charging with the push of a button on their smartphone app. During colder months, Remote Climate Control allows users to schedule pre-heating of IONIQ 5 while it is connected to an external power source. Not only does this ensure comfort for occupants during the drive, it also saves battery power that would otherwise be needed to heat the vehicle on the road.
IONIQ 5’s Online Voice Recognition system accepts simple voice commands to conveniently control cabin A/C, radio, hatch opening/closing, heated steering wheel, heated/cooled seats and other functions. The system can also assist with various points of interest (POI) and weather status updates.
Meanwhile, the Bluelink® app has also been overhauled with an updated digital environment to coincide with IONIQ 5’s launch. This will be available from July.
In the near future, Hyundai will be launching Over the Air infotainment and map updates as part of Bluelink®.

Safety and convenience
IONIQ 5 is equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense, the company’s advanced driver assistance system, which ensures the highest levels of safety and convenience on the road.
IONIQ 5 is the first Hyundai model to offer Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2), which combines Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control and Lane Following Assist and utilises Level 2 autonomous driving capabilities to make highway driving even more convenient. Using front view camera, radar sensors and navigation data, HDA 2 works to control the speed, direction and following distance. While Level 1 HDA (HDA 1) maintains a safe following distance and keeps the vehicle centred in its lane, HDA 2 can additionally assist the driver when changing lanes.
Other semi-autonomous driving features include Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), which adjusts vehicle speed to match the speed limit, and High Beam Assist (HBA), which automatically turns high beams on and off to avoid blinding oncoming drivers.
IONIQ 5 is equipped with several driver attention-related functions to ensure safe driving at all times by detecting if the driver is drowsy or distracted. Driver Attention Warning (DAW) monitors the driver’s attention level while driving and provides a warning when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected and will recommend a rest if needed. DAW includes the Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA) function, which sounds a warning if the vehicle remains stopped for a prolonged period (such as at a traffic signal) and the driver doesn’t react quickly enough when the vehicle ahead starts moving.
Several functions work in tandem to help avoid collisions in a variety of driving situations. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) helps avoid collisions at the rear side of the vehicle by using radar to detect other vehicles and applies defensive steering or differential braking if necessary. BCA is particularly useful in situations such as changing lanes or exiting from parallel parking. Meanwhile, Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM) uses a camera to show the driver views to the left and the right of the vehicle on the cluster screen if the driver indicates to change lanes.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) can detect a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist and can help avoid a collision with any one of them by autonomously applying the brakes in case the driver does not react to the warning (audible and in the cluster). FCA includes Junction Turning, Junction Crossing and/or Lane-Changing Oncoming. FCA with Junction Turning activates the brakes if it detects oncoming traffic when the driver is turning left at an intersection. FCA with Junction Crossing senses vehicles approaching from the side when the driver is going straight through an intersection. And FCA with Lane-Change Oncoming is a function to make switching lanes safer. If FCA senses an approaching car that has crossed the centre line when the driver is changing lanes, FCA automatically assists with avoidance steering, if there is no danger of secondary accidents. If a potential secondary accident is detected, FCA will only produce a warning.
IONIQ 5 also assures the safety of backseat passengers with Safe Exit Assist (SEA), which helps keep the rear door closed via electronic child lock if rear traffic passes by.
A variety of parking assistance features make parking in a variety of circumstances easier than before. Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) allows the driver remotely park or exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle. This feature works for both parallel and perpendicular parking and can be activated via a button on the vehicle’s smart key.
Surround View Monitor (SVM) utilises a series of strategically located cameras to give the driver a 360-degree view of the area surrounding the vehicle, making it easier to park in tight spaces.
Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA) works to help avoid collisions while backing up. If an obstacle is detected via the rear view camera or rear ultrasonic sensors, PCA will display a warning and, if necessary, apply the brakes. Similarly, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) can display and sound a warning, or apply the brakes, when a car approaches from the left or right side and the driver does not stop.
