Hyundai looks to be readying a round of updates for its Ioniq 5 electric compact crossover.
A camouflaged prototype version was spotted testing near Hyundai’s European technical center in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and a closer inspection reveals a few tweaks.
Revised fascias are featured front and rear, with the rear fascia being an almost completely new design and the front fascia featuring a new position for the parking sensors and also a new design for the center intake.
According to our photographer the dash was also completely concealed, suggesting some changes will take place on the inside as well.

It isn’t clear what mechanical changes are planned, though there will likely be some tweaks to the motors or batteries, or possibly both.
Based on Hyundai Motor Group’s flexible E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 5 delivers up to 303 miles of range as estimated by the EPA and a maximum 320 hp in standard guise and 641 hp in the Ioniq 5 N.
The Ioniq 5 arrived in the U.S. for the 2022 model year and has just spawned the Ioniq 5 N for 2024. In Hyundai tradition, we should see the updated model arrive for the 2025 model year, meaning a debut next year is likely.
