    Ioniq Is Now A Hyundai Sub-Brand, Three New Models Coming Soon

    Ioniq Is Now A Hyundai Sub-Brand, Three New Models Coming Soon
    AUG 09, 2020

    In 2015, Hyundai officially created a sub-brand for its luxury vehicles, Genesis. It was a spin-off from one of the most exciting Hyundai vehicles then, the Genesis Coupe. It was a good decision for Hyundai, we reckon, as Genesis continues to soar in sales particularly in the U.S.

    Five years on, the South Korean automaker is on the same path it took before. This time, it's for the marque's future battery electric vehicles, which will be under a new sub-brand called Ioniq.
    If it isn't obvious, the Ioniq name came from Hyundai's line of hybrid and electric vehicles that come in four-door fastback form. The nameplate will now move forward as an official Hyundai sub-brand that will offer "customer-centric EV experiences."

    Apart from the special light show at the London Eye to celebrate the occasion, Hyundai also announced three upcoming new models under Ioniq. The Ioniq 5 will be the first of the three – a midsize crossover EV that's based on the Hyundai 45 Concept that debuted last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It's slated to come out in early 2021, which explains the prototype sightings this year.
    The next EV model is the Ioniq 6 sedan, which is based on the strikingly-designed Prophecy concept that was previewed during the first quarter of this year. The Ioniq 6 will debut in 2022.

    Lastly, the Ioniq 7 SUV will be the largest of the first EV trifecta under the new sub-brand and will come out by early 2024. Of note, the numerical naming scheme of the new Ioniq models follows a pattern – odd numbers for SUVs, even numbers for sedans.
    The new Ioniq models will also sit on a new platform called the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). E-GMP will allow fast-charging and "plentiful" driving range, though Hyundai didn't disclose specifics regarding this matter.

    Oh man, I didn't even realize that Ioniq was spelled the way it was.

    Ironic, the Iconic Ionic now X 3. Clowning around aside, good for them if they make it work.

    I can just imagine what GM's brass is thinking that there's another "-iq" moniker out there --- and the collective internal squabble that will follow.

    Stupid/Funny (depending how one wants to look at it) thing is, is that Hyundai and the Ioniq were there first IIRC, just sayin'.

    The Ioniq is AT LEAST 4 years old! Didn't the clowns at GM do any "name searches" or maybe they did and that is where they got the idea?............

    Certainly Hyundai has more up-side in this one than Cadillac.

    Hyundai shares also jumped 10% with the announcement of these three vehicles by 2024. GM's barely budges whenever they announce anything.

    Spiked as high as 15%, but ultimately settling up 10.54%.

    Because Hyundais EV plans are volume targeted while GM is pissing around with 80-100k luxury items that might move 20k a year...if they're lucky.

    I guess that's what happens when you run around with your head up your ass all the time.
