Great range, fast charging and a host of accompanying technologies are the highlights of this model.
Hyundai Motor has officially launched its first electric sedan. Along with the official design, a series of specifications of the Ioniq 6 have been confirmed by the Korean brand. This is the second electric vehicle in Hyundai's new Ioniq lineup, and the impressive range is one of the biggest highlights of this electric sedan.

Compared to its predecessor, the Ioniq 5, the new car has 100km more range. Specifically, Hyundai claims the Ioniq 6 will provide an estimated WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) range of more than 610 km. Expected power consumption is 14 kWh/100 km.

Compare that to the Tesla Model 3 Long Range's 600 km and the Model S's 650 km, and it seems Tesla has some formidable new rivals. And the Ioniq 6 will almost certainly be cheaper than the Model S, too, with prices around the $50,640 mark of the Model 3 Long Range.

And when it comes to charging on the Ioniq 6, this car won't keep you waiting long. Because it is equipped with a super-fast charger that supports both 400-V and 800-V chargers, which Hyundai claims can replenish the battery from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. And if you're in an even greater hurry, it can still be used to travel more than 100 km after a 5-minute charge.

Hyundai is also calling the Ioniq 6 a "streamliner" car (with aerodynamic shape). Because its design has been adjusted (though not completely perfect) to be as aerodynamic as possible. In fact, the Ioniq 6 has a drag coefficient of 0.21 and although not as "slippery" as the Mercedes EQS (with a score of 0.20), it is the most aerodynamic car the Korean company has ever built.

Customers will be able to choose between 53kWh and 77.4kWh battery sizes, with the smaller being only available in the RWD (rear-wheel drive) version, while the larger battery size can be bundled with the RWD version. or AWD (all-wheel drive).

And that shouldn't be too much of an issue, as the Ioniq 6 can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds (AWD model standard with 239kW), to ensure it won't be missed by any competitor behind when the traffic light changes from red to green.

The car's elongated and low body design is said to be one of the factors that help increase the range of travel mentioned above. Its wheelbase has also been lengthened compared to the Ioniq 5 (both cars are built on Hyundai's E-GMP platform) to create a larger, domed design that offers more interior space. wide for passengers.

Inside this dome, you'll experience the company's exclusive recliner, which reclines almost completely flat when parking, so passengers can recharge their bodies as well as their cars. me. Hyundai has added a lot of interesting details inside to promise a 'living space on wheels'. There's a large center console between the front seats, giving the driver access to all the switches they need, while the doors are virtually buttonless.

"The innovative interior offers a personal space like a cocoon, enhanced with the latest technologies to create a safe, fun and stress-free driving experience. Spacious interior, with sustainability and usability at the heart, once again represents a step forward for electric vehicles, in line with customer values," said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President of Hyundai Motor Company, in praise of the space. Such is the interior of this car.

Hyundai also emphasizes that users can place the laptop on the center console if they want to work while parking or charging. Included with it are plenty of power outlets for devices, including four USB-C ports and one USB-A port, along with a traditional power outlet under the second row of seats.

The new electric vehicle also inherits the V2L reverse charging system on the Ioniq 5, allowing the battery in the Ioniq 6 to be used to power or charge other things - including other electric vehicle models.

You'll also find on the car two large, 12-inch screens, one behind the steering wheel - which acts as the instrument cluster - and a second in the center with touch assist, acting as main infotainment screen. The vehicle supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and users will also get a Bose audio system.

Not stopping there, the Ioniq 6 gets rid of the traditional side mirrors and uses a digital mirror system. Hyundai is not the first manufacturer to use this type of mirror, but its implementation offers a modern and luxurious experience for users.

In addition to the comfort features, the interior of the Ioniq 6 is also designed to be highly customizable. The interior lighting system alone includes 64 colors and six distinct themes. That light will also be bright or dim depending on how fast the vehicle is moving.

There is no word on pricing for the Hyundai Ioniq 6 yet, but the first cars will reach customers in South Korea and some European markets before the end of 2022.

In the US, users will have to wait until 2023 for the first Ioniq 6 to hit the market. Hyundai is expected to open orders for the Ioniq 6 in the fourth quarter of this year.
