Default Hyundai Ioniq becomes a sub-brand

And will have 3 cars debut in 4 yrs. A Car and Driver article described a compact hatchback, but the MT article says it will be a compact crossover (which makes more sense to me). The compact SUV will be based on the 45 concept, while the sedan will be inspired by the Prophecy concept.

Smart move. And you’re right Mick, something Toyota should have done years ago.

The 45 looks really sharp... that could be a home run with the right range and price. I can easily see this being their Kia Soul for EV’s

The spy shots of the Ioniq 5 make it seem it might ride slightly higher than a hatch, but not true crossover height (just like the 45 concept itself), so I can understand the confusion:
