Hyundai IONIQ Lineup Could Get Entry-Level Models

IONIQ could expand EV lineup for Hyundai

  • Hyundai IONIQ family could offer more affordable models under the new IONIQ 5

  • A more affordable Hyundai IONIQ could mean the end of the Hyundai Kona EV

  • New model would benefit from the IONIQ 5’s 800-volt architecture

The new Hyundai IONIQ 5 is already a hit, and it hasn’t even arrived yet. The model’s impressive design, stylish cockpit, and advanced 800-volt architecture have caught the attention of the public, and pre-orders for the IONIQ 5 are pouring in.

The nameplate is poised to become a lineup of models that could include the IONIQ 6 sedan and the IONIQ 7 SUV. That said, Hyundai isn’t shutting the door on building smaller, more affordable IONIQ models either as reported by Automotive News Europe.

Speaking at the Munich Auto Show, a Hyundai marketing executive said that the IONIQ’s E-GMP platform would work well for smaller vehicles as well. This could open the door for a future Hyundai IONIQ 3 or IONIQ 4 that would either slot next to the current Hyundai Kona EV, or simply replace it.

This would mean a more accessible starting price and, more importantly, give more consumers access to the quick-charging capabilities of the 800-volt architecture used on the IONIQ 5.

Stay tuned…
