HYUNDAI IONIQ 5 STALKED IN TRAFFIC BY TESLA DRIVER

“The Ioniq 5 is scheduled to debut later this month and the automaker has already teased the zero-emission hatchback on a number of occasions. We’ve also had several unofficial encounters with the funky EV and today we are happy to share our best look at the model yet.” writes Motor1: ” The long 12:46-minute video shows a Tesla Model 3 owner stalking an Ioniq 5 prototype in the city of Bundang-gu, one of South Korea’s wealthiest and highest developed areas. The footage provides a very close look at the rear end of the electric vehicle with its pixelar taillights. we get to see the pop-out door handles that seem to be part of the production model’s standard equipment.  As standard, the eco-friendly hatch is expected to gain a dual-motor setup and a fast-charging function.”

The program hopes to slash repair delays.” says Fred at electrek: “Over the weekend, Tesla has been sending in-app notifications to owners to let them know that “collision repair is here. On top of the previously mentioned repairs, Tesla now lists some more extensive collision repairs: Suspension and axle damage, front and rear bumpers, hoods, liftgate and side mirror caps, along with doors, wheels and all glass repair.
