Hyundai has dropped a teaser of the first of its new Ioniq models: the 5. The Ioniq 5 is also the first auto to be built on Hyundai's Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).

"Beginning with IONIQ 5, our dedicated EV line-up brand will redefine the relationship between people and their cars, establishing a new standard against which all BEV design experiences will be measured", said senior VP and head of the Hyundai design center SangYup Lee, in a release accompanying the photos.

The signature design elements applied to the Ioniq 5 include Parametric Pixels, along with its Color Material Finish (CMF) aesthetic that aims to bridge the analogue and digital worlds. A fully enclosed grille and digital side mirrors complete the front face of the Ioniq 5. Three videos promote its Vehicle to Load technology, which enables the IONIQ 5 to function as a 110/220V power supply, which will help owners to power any electrical appliance, anywhere. According to Hyundai Austria's blunder of posting the official specs of IONIQ 5 on its website a year ago, a combined power output of 313 PS is expected, along with an all-wheel drive setup. After the Ioniq 5's arrival to the US and other markets later this year, the Ioniq 6-based on the Prophecy sedan concept-will arrive in 2022. In each video, the camper is seen using IONIQ 5's 3.5KW of V2L-supplied power to roast a turkey in a large oven, listen to music on high-end audio speakers, and exercise on a treadmill-all at a camping site.

Using the latter, the IONIQ 5 is said to be capable of juicing up with enough energy for more than 100 km (62 miles) of range in just five minutes.

The Ioniq 5 is likely to come with all-wheel drive with an output of of 309 hp. Its modular design enables the addition or subtraction of packs to alter capacity as required, and its design also helps lower fix costs by allowing individual battery packs to be replaced, rather than having to remove an entire unit.
