From the bio-fabrics to the recycled plastics used to create the headliner, carpeting and door trim, even the interior of the Ioniq shows an eco-conscious side. These pleasing surfaces and textures are the result of the inventive use of eco-friendly materials such as sugar cane and volcanic stone.
Sugar cane accounts for 25% of the raw materials used in the interior’s soft-touch door trim panels.
Recycled plastic combined with powdered wood and volcanic stone reduces the weight of some interior plastics up to 20%.
I wonder if this will feel scratchy? The website says that it is in the soft-touch door trim panels, probably to alleviate concerns just like mine
And what about moisture? If I leave my door open will the panel turn into a gooey hard candy?
