Hyundai took a futuristic-looking concept car and built it, promising to change how the roads look bit-by-bit.
The Ioniq uses a boxy pixel design signature all over the car, but it’s most prominent on the headlights at the front and brake lights at the back.
Hyundai calls it the “Parametic Pixel” and it can be found all over the Ioniq 5.

It’s here on the charge port lid, showing you where to press to open it. They make up the charge indicator lights too.
It’s also located on the side mirror turn signal indicator.
The Parametic Pixel extends to less functional places too, like these design elements on the door.
There’s other cool stuff in the Ioniq too, like the zero-gravity mode for the driver’s seat. It’s meant for relaxing while the car charges.
Weirdly, the one place without any pixels is the steering wheel, which is nearly blank save a small horn emblem.
The sunroof opens up from the middle, like some kind of awesome automotive torpedo bay.
But the coolest thing might be this little panel to the left of the instrument cluster. It’s magnetic, like a refrigerator, so you can keep little notes to yourself.
