Hyundai Motor Company has launched the new IONIQ brand dedicated to battery electric vehicles as a key element of the company's electrification strategy. This will be led by the IONIQ 5 mid-size electric crossover to be introduced in early 2021 and followed by two more EVs. All IONIQ EV models will be built on the proprietary E-GMP platform.

The IONIQ Brand

Hyundai first introduced the term IONIQ, which fuses “ion” and “unique”, when it announced Project IONIQ, a long-term research and development project focused on eco-friendly mobility. Subsequently, Hyundai released the original IONIQ powered by three electrified powertrain options: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric.

E-GMP Platform

All IONIQ models will be built on Hyundai's new Electric Global Modular Platform, E-GMP. Designed from the ground-up for battery-electric vehicles, it will allow IONIQ-branded EVs to feature large interior space, imagined by Hyundai into a 'smart living space' with highly adjustable seats, wireless connectivity and unique features such as a glove box designed as drawers.
