IONIQ 5 cabin is full of sustainable stuff


Hyundai is all set to reveal the IONIQ 5 crossover, the first BEV under the new sub-brand, on Feb 23, 2021. But before that, the company has shared a teaser of the cabin that offers a sneak peek of the layout and the materials used.

Speaking of which, it appears that the entire front central armrest/center console moves along with the passenger seat as suggested in these pictures. As for the materials, the seats are clad in eco-processed leather that is dyed and treated with plant oil extractions from flaxseed, Hyundai said. Apparently, the other soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin consist of textiles derived from fibers such as sugar cane bio components, wool and poly yarns, as well as material woven from fibers made from recycled plastic bottles. Surfaces such as the dashboard, switches, steering wheel and door panels are coated in a polyurethane bio paint composed of oils from rape flowers and corn.

The IONIQ 5 is the first BEV to utilize the Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that houses a flat battery pack, enabling a spacious and customizable interior. It’ll be the production version of the 45 concept that debuted at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.
