hyundai is set to reveal its first vehicle in the ioniq subbrand, the ioniq 5, on february 23. ahead of that debut, the automaker has released an interior shot of the forthcoming electric vehicle. the ioniq 5 is a hatchback-like mid-size crossover, as we've seen from earlier teasers of the exterior. its appearance draws from the design of the 45 concept—and that look extends to the interior.
the overhead shot of the front seats and dash shows two screens, the instrument cluster and the infotainment screen, which sit on the same panel running from in front of the driver to the middle of the dash. buttons are sparse; there is a cluster of physical controls below the infotainment screen, but not much beyond that.
the ioniq 5 will get a physical drive stalk to the right of a two-spoke steering wheel. that steering wheel looks similar to those in cars from genesis, the hyundai/kia group's luxury brand. between the drivers, there is nothing more than two cupholders, an armrest, and storage. there will also be a flat floor between the drivers, much like in the 45 concept.
the driver and front passenger seats come equipped with footrests so that the occupants can rest while the car is charging. those seats, hyundai says, are wrapped in sustainable fabrics sourced from products such as sugar cane, wool, and recycled pet plastic bottles. hyundai says that the interior is both spacious and customizable, but we'll have to wait until the reveal to learn how it can be customized.
the ioniq 5 will be revealed on february 23 at 2 a.m. eastern time.
