Hyundai teases new SUV

Hyundai has unveiled the first teaser image of its Ioniq 5 midsize SUV, the first model in its dedicated electric vehicles (EV) line-up brand.

The car will be mated with the marque’s electric-global modular platform, which has been made exclusively for its next-generation battery EVs.

The Ioniq 5’s design elements include parametric pixels, the smallest unit of digital imaging, as well as its eco-friendly colour material finish direction.

Its front end has arrays of pixel-inspired lights and it’s also the first Hyundai to feature a clamshell hood spanning the entire width of the car to minimise panel gaps.

Aero-optimised wheels further echo the parametric pixel design theme and come with 20-inch diameters – the largest rims ever fitted to an EV made by the South Korean brand. 

The Ioniq 5 will make its full debut in a virtual world-premiere next month.
