South Korean EV Crossover surprises with its 480 km range

Hyundai introduced its new model loniq 5. The 5, which is the first product of the loniq sub-brand of electric cars, rises from the E-GMP platform and has great importance for the Korean brand.

The flexible cabin of the car, which follows the Hyundai 45 concept in terms of design, and its unique cockpit design attract attention.

When we look at the proportions of the vehicle at first glance, although the dimensions of the vehicle can be said to be similar to the Golf 8, the vehicle deserves its loniq 5 Crossover/SUV status due to its height of 1.61 meters. Its length of approx. 4.64 meters carries it to the Volkswagen ID.4 and Nissan Ariya classification.
