Hyundai Ioniq 5 will have revolutionary on-board supercharger
Hyundai is unveiling new details of the debutant SUV Ioniq 5, the first model in the South Korean manufacturer Ioniq’s newly created undersea electric car range, which will be launched in the first half of 2021.
Hyundai reveals that the production model, anticipated by Concept 45 at the Salon de Frankfurte in 2019, will have a high-powered 800 Volt on-board charger, supporting 11 kWh for alternating current (AC) charging or up to 232 kWh for direct current (DC) charging.
Ioniq 5 is Hyundai’s first model coupled with the recently unveiled Global Electric Modular Platform, known as E-GMP. “It will therefore benefit from greater efficiency, with capacities for faster charging and greater autonomy,” says the Asian manufacturer in a statement.
In addition, the integration in the E-GMP will allow Hyundai to design the interior of the vehicle “as a Smart Living Space and improve the driving experience and driver stability,” reads the same document.
Hyundai will reveal new details of the electric SUV over the next few weeks through an online puzzle, released on social networks. This initiative will provide more information on its interior concept, security equipment and connectivity, as well as charging and design capabilities. The puzzle represents an opportunity to get to know the main features of this model before its official launch.
