Hyundai reboots the Ioniq nameplate into an entire brand of electric vehicles. The Ford Mustang Mach-E will take advantage of some space-saving drive module packaging. Mazda shows a gasoline version of its MX-30 electric vehicle. And Fisker is looking at having its Ocean electric crossover built in Austria. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.
Fisker Inc. and Magna have confirmed a memorandum of understanding to build its Ocean electric SUV in Graz, Austria. Although that happens to be where the Jaguar I-Pace is also built—also with LG Chem cells—Fisker continues to seek Volkswagen’s MEB platform that will underpin a wide range of EVs from the VW ID Buzz, its electric Microbus, to the Audi Q4.
Ford supplier BorgWarner has released a little more information about the integrated drive modules that go into the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV—combining the motor, gearbox, thermal management, and power electronics, and potentially freeing up space for shrimp in the Mach-E’s large frunk.
At a time when interest in electric vehicles is surging, Mazda has let its formerly EV-exclusive MX-30 fall flat before its arrival in its European target market—by introducing a gasoline version.
Hyundai has rebooted the Ioniq nameplate into an entire brand of electric vehicles—to be led in fall 2021 with the introduction of an Ioniq 5 crossover and then an Ioniq 6 sedan in 2022. Both will follow the beautiful lines of the 45 and Prophecy concepts of the past couple years.
And over at Motor Authority, check out spy shots and video of the Ioniq 5.
