Ioniq Q, Hyundai’s electric motorcycle born from the imagination of a Korean designer

Hyundai is making one of the largest investments among traditional manufacturers to convince buyers with a new, technological and reliable product. The Ioniq 5 is their first model born from scratch to be an electric car and its reception by the market and specialists could not have been better. Design and technology come together in a car that has captured a large part of sales. Following this line, Korean designer Ji Woong Cha It has been inspired by it to create the brand’s first unofficial electric motorcycle: Ioniq Q.

Although it is a project that has no relationship with Hyundai, it does offer an idea of ​​how far the Korean manufacturer’s electric offer could go to expand its electric range. The designer has been able to apply a very similar design language to that of the brand, achieving a proposal that is very much in line with the product that Hyundai offers today.

The one in charge of letting the imagination fly to offer is the Korean designer Ji Woong Cha, who appears in behance.net web directory with several proposals related to the automotive and transport sectors in general. Ioniq Q wields the minimalist style based on geometric shapes that the Ioniq 5 exhibits.

The renders shown by Woong as digital renderings of the Ioniq Q exhibit simple lines that make up a tough and muscular final image supported by large-diameter, high-strength wheels fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires specially designed for electric vehicles.

Design sketches by Ji Woong Cha showing the central part of the “Q” shaped electric motorcycle.

In the profile view the central structure that gives its name to the motorcycle can be seen. with a shape similar to that of a “Q”, from it starts a front suspension based on a very inclined inverted fork. At the rear, a swingarm that embraces the central Q holds a wheel in which the electric motor that propels the motorcycle is implemented.

The pilot sits at the back of this structure adopting a very flat position, since the location of the handlebar and the floating seat means that they are practically at the same height. At the front and rear, the lighting system is made up of sets of lights in the form of an LED strip with pixel-style lamps very much in line with those included in the Ioniq 5.

For now, this design is just a project in which the brand has not intervened, but which could inspire designers to fit future Hyundai products beyond its range of electric cars, which would allow it to diversify the product and design the mobility of the future. In fact, Hyundai imagines that future, in which all kinds of electric vehicles have a place, with electric planes, autonomous urban shuttles or fuel cell-powered vehicles for heavy road transport.
