One day, we will be able to unlock cars just by looking at them
It's difficult to imagine now, but it's entirely possible that one day-perhaps in a decade or two-motorists won't even remember you once had to turn a key to get a car to start. At the rate the
Everything just appears much more streamlined

One reason some families stick with a single car brand? It's simply easier to upgrade within a product ecosystem you're satisfied with than it is to try out something new. Why mix things up when you're already familiar with

So, is it any good?
The Ioniq 5 might look like an '80s hot hatch mixed with a dash of concept car and a splash of DeLorean, but what we have here is Hyundai's first completely bespoke EV. Target? Sideswipe Tesla, mug the Volkswagen ID family,
