Hyundai Pony EV Heritage: This is how the Hyundai Ioniq 5 had looked in the 70s

We write ‘time machine’ because the Hyundai Pony EV Heritage is based on a real Hyundai Pony from the 1970s. As you can see in the pictures, the car looks like it has stepped out of a low budget science fiction series of the era: with its clean lines, pixel tail lights and beautiful dashboard, with steampunk-esque gauges behind a minimalist steering wheel.

Missing link between Hyundai Pony and Hyundai Ioniq 5

It is not known which electric powertrain is hidden under the body of the Pony EV Heritage, but we can imagine that the developers have taken the shelved units of the Hyundai Kona Electric or the Hyundai Ioniq 5. It’s important, because the Pony EV Heritage is clearly a playful design gimmick. A species missing link between Pony and Ioniq 5.

Original Hyundai Pony from 1982 to 1990

The first generation Hyundai Pony – which served as the basis for this concept car – was built from 1975 to 1982. It was available as a 3- and 5-door hatchback, sedan, station wagon and pickup. The second generation Hyundai Pony was delivered from 1982 to 1990 and under the skin was almost identical to its predecessor.

Italdesign Giugiaro was responsible for the Hyundai Pony design

For its first production model, Hyundai hired a number of English British Leyland engineers. The engines for the Pony came from Mitsubishi and a number of other parts were picked from the Ford Cortina warehouse. The Italian design house Italdesign Giugiaro was responsible for the design of the Pony. The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 pays homage to the original 1974 Hyundai Pony Concept.
