This flagship electric SUV of Hyundai has been built on the Electric Global Modular Platform (eGMP) of Hyundai Motor Group. Kia Motor is also building the EV6 on the same platform.
The company has also revealed some initial information about the Ionic 5. The car uses a 72.6 kW Lithium Ion battery that can provide a range of 100 kilometers in just 5 minutes of charge.
For entertainment in this car, high-end audio speakers and music system have been given. This car can accelerate from 0-100 km in just 5 seconds.

Hyundai Motor Group has announced that the company will sell one million electric cars in the global market by 2025. The company aims to create a 10 percent share of the global electric vehicle market.
Japan and the European Union have legislated to sell only electric cars after 2030. This will increase competition among companies making electric cars in the coming times. With increasing competition among companies, the types of electric vehicles will increase as well as the price will also fall.
