The manufacturer unveiled a detail of the Ioniq 5: the centre console will be able to slide back and forth thanks to the car’s flat floor, making it easier for the driver and passengers to move around. The centre console, which Hyundai calls the “Universal Island”, becomes a dynamic element of the cabin. The driver’s and front passenger’s seats have footrests that allow passengers to relax, creating a comfortable atmosphere. The seats are upholstered in faux leather, dyed and treated with vegetable oil extractions from linseed. Other soft finishes throughout the cabin include fabrics derived from sustainable fibres such as organic sugar cane components, wool yarns and polymers, as well as material woven from fibres made from recycled PET plastic bottles. Surfaces such as the dashboard, switches, steering wheel and door panels are coated with an organic polyurethane paint made from rapeseed flower and corn oils.
