LOS ANGELES — Hyundai is previewing with several teaser images the new Ioniq 5 crossover that will debut early this year and establish the Ioniq electric vehicle subbrand, with three vehicles planned by 2024.
The Ioniq 5, which Hyundai is calling a midsize crossover, is the first vehicle on the automaker's Electric-Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP. Similar crossovers from corporate siblings Kia and Genesis are expected to be shown late this year or early next year. Sales launches for the U.S. have not been announced.
The design for the Ioniq 5 comes from the 45 concept car shown in fall 2019. The angular shape is inspired by looking back at the brand's designs from the 1970s, the company said.
