Hyundai has introduced the Ioniq 6 electric sedan, which is the third electric car in the Ioniq EV series. Earlier, the company introduced the ioniq 5, which is a crossover car. No information has been given about the range and power of the new car at the moment, but it has been confirmed that the car will be based on the company’s eGMP platform, on which the Kia EV6 is built. It is expected that like the EV6, this upcoming car can also give a range of around 480 km.
The Ioniq 6 comes with Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design style. Unlike the Ioniq 5, the upcoming electric sedan features a more aerodynamic-focused ‘single-curve’ design, which, as Hyundai claims, helps optimize efficiency. It has been given flush door handles and cameras. At the rear, the electric sedan gets Pixel-style LED tail-lights. One of its highlights is the ducktail rear spoiler, which not only gives the car a very sporty look, but also helps in aerodynamics.
The Ioniq 6 has a flat center console, which is also seen in the GV60 electric car of another company’s brand Genesis. It includes dual 12-inch touchscreens and a two-spoke steering wheel to give the interiors an elegant and sporty look. Its length is 4,855 mm, width is 1,880 mm, height is 1,495 mm and wheelbase is 2,950 mm.
The Ioniq 6 uses the brand’s E-GMP skateboard architecture, over which the EV6 is built. As we mentioned, Hyundai has not yet shared the specifications of the EV, but if we go by the standard specifications of this platform, then it can be expected that this car will support fast charging up to 350kW. Apart from this, the Ioniq 6 could also be offered with the option of a battery pack from 58kWh to 77.4kWh capacity. The car can also be expected to get a range of more than 482 km.
Apart from this, Hyundai can also expect the car to be offered in two powertrain configurations like the EV6, which are a single motor with rear-wheel-drive and a dual-motor option with four-wheel-drive.
