When the Ioniq 5 crossover is fully revealed next week, it will be Hyundai’s first electric vehicle built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The platform has a dead battery that Hyundai uses to optimize the interior, which is shown in this short teaser. The center console is a little different from what you may be used to. It was designed as an island that can move around, while both front seats include leg rests so you can sit back while the vehicle is charging.
The articulating console appears to allow access from either side so you can move around the vehicle with ease, and Hyundai also highlights the materials used, such as an “eco-processed leather that is dyed and treated with vegetable oil extractions from flaxseed”. Like other manufacturers, Hyundai has big plans for electric vehicles, and the Ioniq 5 is just the first in the lineup. Models 6 and 7 are scheduled to hit the market in 2022 and 2024.
