The EV-dedicated platform will allow Hyundai to reimagine the vehicle interior as “smart living space” with highly adjustable seats, wireless connectivity and unique features such as a glove box designed as drawers.
User interfaces that will be simple, intuitive and ergonomically designed to help occupants feel at ease.
The name fuses “ion” and “unique” and was first used with Project Ioniq, a long-term research and development project focused on eco-friendly mobility.
It was this project that led to to the Ioniq model in 2016, the world’s first and only model to offer a choice of three electrified powertrain options – hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid and battery electric.
Hyundai has marked the the launch of the Ioniq brand by turning the London Eye Ferris wheel into a giant letter “Q” using electric lights.
