Hyundai Envisions Future of Mobility Experience with IONIQ Concept Cabin
Hyundai has unveiled the IONIQ Concept Cabin, its vision of future EV in-car customer experience. The concept shows how the company plans to leverage the interior space and power supply capacity of EVs to integrate home electronics and appliances in its future IONIQ EV models.
The Cabin, made in partnership with LG Electronics, provides a hint of what’s possible. For example, there is, apparently, a ‘Clothing Care’ and ‘Shoes Butler’ feature that will allow customers to handle mundane tasks on the go, while enjoying some entertainment on the ceiling-mounted 77-inch flexible OLED screen. The screen is large enough for two people to enjoy different content simultaneously. The sound is pumped through the speakers in the headrests which creates a personal sound zone. In addition, a floor cleaning robot along with the overhead UV LED lights ensures the cabin is kept clean and disinfected. Interesting stuff.
Hyundai plans to offer such value-added experiences starting with IONIQ 5, a dedicated EV slated for launch early next year.
