Hyundai will release a range of new battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) under the Ioniq branding. In 2016, the company revealed the Ioniq name with a subcompact hybrid.
The earlier BEVs will now have company. In early 2021, Hyundai will introduce the Ioniq 5, a midsize crossover based on a 2019 concept.
In the following year, Hyundai will roll out Ioniq 6, a sedan based on a jaw-dropping concept car from earlier in 2020. See what the Hyundai Prophecy looks like here. If finalized in early 2024, the trilogy of new BEVs will be complete with a larger SUV, the Ioniq 7.
The progression of a steady rollout for a new lineup of vehicles is not new. Hyundai employed the strategy with its creation of the Genesis, a standalone luxury brand.
Hyundai sees the Ioniq creating a tectonic shift in the electrical vehicle (EV) industry. From enhanced customer experience to a renewed emphasis on “connected living,” the Ioniq promises to deliver an electrified user experience that also meets the demands of an eco-friendly lifestyle.
The three Ioniq BEVs will be powered by a new platform, currently under development. The Electric Global Modular Platform, E-GMP for short, ushers in a new phase for the new vehicle’s body style and interior design.
Hyundai expects to sell 1 million BEVs within five years and half a million hydrogen fuel cells EVs in the same period.
