We have access to such models, but they're highly confidential (and highly expensive to purchase) so we can only share some insights via articles.

In case of the Ioniq, we actually did a collaboration with A2MAC1 (using such a detailed model):

Hope you like the content!!
Iím talking about the original Ioniq hybrid. Not the Ioniq 5 electric suv. Totally different cars. Hyundai is almost as bad as naming cars as Microsoft with x box one x series sx

The Ioniq hybrid already has a base cd of 0.24 and Iím trying to lower it to .20 or lower for my YouTube channel
