This new spy video shows the full electric Hyundai 45 EV prototype (IONIQ 5) during some laps on the Nürburgring.


For everyone wanting more details, here's what a source reported along with the spy video:

The Ioniq 5 will be the first of five vehicles under the Ioniq brand, it will ride on a new E-GMP platform and it will have a price tag of around $45,0000; it should also provide more performance than the current Kona Electric, which starts at under $40,000. In fact, unlike the Kona EV which is front-wheel drive only, the Ioniq 5 will most likely be all-wheel drive and since it was recently spotted testing on the Nurburgring, it might have a performance twist too.

Yeah, maybe there's some more interesting creases under the camo.

It basically looks exactly like a VW T-Cross.

There is some more info here from a kind of well-informed German dealer. The use of an 800 V battery allows charging power levels up to 200 kW, which will leave all charging issues of the current Ioniq and Kona (and many other brands) far behind us. It will be difficult to finish your coffee or tea before the fast charging ends... (from 0 to 80% in 15 minutes).

Some more info here with more pictures in the Photo Gallery; note the totally different interior.

I think it looks ugly with those razor-sharp edges to hurt my eyes. Especially the diagonal lines across the doors look unattractive.

The specs look promising, though.

Many experts predict that the price of EVs will drop dramatically within the next few years. So if they wish to have a futuristic look, they should also have a futuristic price to go with it! (I.e. much lower than their current range of EVs!)

Interesting. They are basically going up to Taycan levels.

This isn't going to be cheap.

Hopefully they'll still do cheaper EVs for the rest of us.
