SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Centre has claimed that “beginning with IONIQ 5, our dedicated BEV lineup brand will redefine the relationship between people and their cars, establishing a new standard against which all BEV design experiences will be measured.”

Hyundai Motor's press release suggests that the IONIQ 5 will introduce a fundamental shift in the technologies that its electric products are capable of, such as advanced mobility solutions.
