The distinctive and innovative design of the IONIQ 5 provides a unique experience, suggesting a fundamental change in approach to design.

As we told you a few weeks ago, Hyundai has already developed its new modular platform. Designed exclusively for battery electric vehicles (BEV), the E-GMP offers several advantages compared to the group’s existing platforms, which have been predominantly developed to house internal combustion engines. Benefits include increased rollout flexibility, powerful driving performance, superior range, reinforced safety features, and more interior space for occupants and luggage.
The platform guarantees the safety of the battery through a structure made of ultra-high-strength steel. Hot-stamped steel components surround this frame for added rigidity.
The E-GMP maximizes interior space thanks to a long wheelbase, short front and rear overhangs and a narrow cab module. With the battery pack mounted under the floor, the E-GMP provides a completely flat space for the cabin.
The battery pack itself, mounted between the front and rear axles, will be the most power-dense system Hyundai Motor Group has ever created.
The new compact electric propulsion (PE) system of the E-GMP platform consists of a powerful motor, EV transmission and inverter. These three components are integrated into a single compact module.
Well, after telling you all the benefits of this new platform, today Hyundai has revealed a teaser, which although little shows, tells us about the next IONIQ 5, the first specific EV in the new IONIQ brand that will be launched in early 2021 .
Based on Hyundai’s ’45’ EV concept, the IONIQ 5 will be the first car to make use of the Global Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP).
Under IONIQ, Hyundai will launch a range of electric vehicles, including the IONIQ 5 – a mid-size crossover in early 2021 -; the IONIQ 6 – a sedan – and the IONIQ 7 – a large SUV.
