We finally have a better idea what the IONIQ 5 production model will look like thanks to a new teaser from Hyundai:

HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY TEASES FIRST IMAGE OF IONIQ 5
  • Image previews fundamental shift in BEV design approach
  • IONIQ 5 features signature ‘Parametric Pixels’ and eco-friendly elements to offer distinctive design experience
  • Hyundai’s dedicated BEV lineup brand provides all-new enhanced customer experiences through advanced mobility solutions
  • New series of teaser videos showcase IONIQ 5’s Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) technology that functions as a general power supply and ultra-fast charging
SEOUL, January 12, 2021 — Hyundai Motor Company today unveiled the first teaser image of the highly anticipated IONIQ 5 midsize CUV, the first model in its IONIQ dedicated BEV lineup brand.
IONIQ 5 will be the first vehicle mated with Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), an innovative system made exclusively for next-generation battery electric vehicles that will launch a new era of clean mobility for the company.

IONIQ 5’s distinctive and innovative design provides a unique experience that can only be enjoyed in dedicated BEVs, suggesting a fundamental shift in design approach.

IONIQ 5’s signature design elements include Parametric Pixels, the smallest unit of digital imaging, as well as its eco-friendly Color Material Finish (CMF) direction that connects the analogue with digital emotions, showcasing the IONIQ brand’s timeless design value.

IONIQ 5’s front end is adorned with arrays of pixel-inspired lights suggestive of the digital technology within. IONIQ 5 is also the first Hyundai vehicle to feature a clamshell hood that spans the entire width of the car, thus minimizing panel gaps and creating a clean and high-tech overall look.

Aero-optimized wheels further echo the Parametric Pixel design theme, offered in a super-sized 20-inch diameter, the largest rims ever fitted to a Hyundai EV. These complete IONIQ 5’s perfected proportions, optimized for Hyundai’s new signature dedicated EV architecture.

“IONIQ 5 presents an all-new customer experience through innovative EV design that is evocative of the icon that established Hyundai’s design DNA,” said SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center. “Beginning with IONIQ 5, our dedicated BEV lineup brand will redefine the relationship between people and their cars, establishing a new standard against which all BEV design experiences will be measured.”
Hyundai Motor has also released four teaser videos to spark curiosity about the new model, each presenting viewers with a sneak peek at IONIQ 5’s core technologies, raising expectations for the company’s dedicated BEV lineup brand and its first entry.

Three ‘Ultimate Camping’ videos show a camper using various electrical appliances powered by IONIQ 5’s Vehicle to Load (V2L) technology that functions as a general power supply (110/220V). In each video, the camper is seen using IONIQ 5’s 3.5KW of V2L-supplied power to roast a turkey in a large oven, listen to music on high-end audio speakers, and exercise on a treadmill—all at a camping site.

The ‘5 Min Challenge’ video highlights IONIQ 5’s ultra-fast charging capability that enables it to drive more than 100km with only a 5-minute charge (WLTP Standard). To showcase this extraordinary performance, a movie trailer-style challenge was set up featuring IONIQ 5 and three devices—a smartphone, laptop and action camera—that were each charged for 5 minutes and competed to be the last to survive.

Beginning with these videos, Hyundai Motor plans to release even more engaging content that highlights the enhanced lifestyle that new IONIQ 5 customers will experience.

IONIQ 5 will debut in a virtual world premiere event in February 2021.

Suggests this will have a vehicle to grid capability - assume not via CCS but via some other method?

Not Vehicle to Grid but Vehicle to Load. It generates its own 110/230V AC that during camping can power your home coffee machine or oven, for example, but it does not connect to your house grid. Unless you know a device to join two independent AC networks....

I wish they’d make a hybrid version. Is Hyundai going to fully scrap Ioniq hybrids and only have the Elantra and sonata hybrids?

I'm not sure what you mean? I don't know much about this sort of thing but why couldn't it be used like a powerwall? I gather CCS can't do it, but presume there is some other method of connecting it to the grid, why is it different to a solar array feeding back to the grid?

A solar array generates DC current and uses special inverters to transform and adapt it to the already existing AC grid. That situation differs from the AC Vehicle to Load connection of the Ioniq 5. Of course, the DC from the Ioniq 5 battery itself could be connected to the grid in such a manner, but that will not use the AC Vehicle to Load connection and will require different equipment in the car. From the info we have now, such equipment does not seem to be built in.

When you want to use the built-in Vehicle to Load connection and the way in which solar systems add their energy to the grid, you would need first one inverter from the 230V AC of the Vehicle to Load connection to DC and next, an inverter from that DC to the 230V AC (or 110V AC) of your grid, like solar systems use. Both steps will come with a loss %, as you add two conversion steps that produce heat as a waste product. Moreover, the additional equipment needed may cost you an amount of at least 1000 or up to 2000 euro or dollar.

Why you cannot join two independent AC networks in a direct manner is the unequal phase problem. Each of the networks will have their own different phases over time. Specific equipment is needed to adapt these phases to each other from at least one of the sides, and again, such equipment seems not to be built in in the Ioniq 5.

There are still two ways to directly use your Ioniq 5 Vehicle to Load connection to power your home grid:
(1) by disconnecting your home network from the regional grid so that it is stand-alone and does not get different AC input already; for example, this is an option during a blackout or disruption situation of the regional grid.
(2) by using a home battery and charging that from your Ioniq 5 battery while temporarily disconnecting this home battery from the home network; this will also come with a certain loss %, as also in this case you add two conversion steps that produce heat as a waste product.

CCS2 does not have bidirectional capability in its protocol yet. As far as I know, it is in the process of upgrading but not ready yet.
ChaDeMo has this capability, so vehicle-to-grid is possible via ChaDeMo inlet and charging stations in Japan.
