IONIQ 5’s progressive design explores a new freedom offered by a dedicated battery electric vehicle platform. First E-GMP model built by Hyundai’s EV sub-brand is also a power source on wheels.

For sure, all of the new features of the soon to be released electric crossover will be available in the US, like the Vehicle 2 Load, AR Navigation or even solar roof, what is apparently not coming (as they did not showed it) is the camera mirrors.
