It is a four-door sedan with coupe-like styling and boasts a unique rear spoiler
Following the global unveiling of the Ioniq 5 in 2021, the South Korean automaker has revealed its new all-electric sedan, the Ioniq 6. The EV, based on the same (Electric Global Modular Platform) E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5 (read more here) and is one of the most aerodynamic cars from the brand with a drag coefficient of just 0.21.

The Ioniq 6 gets a distinctive body styling and it easily stands out from its siblings with a unique headlamp design, streamlined body and a very unique rear that boasts a ducktail-like rear spoiler much like the one in the Porsche 911s.
Like the Ioniq 5, lighting elements on this car too are eye-catching with the use of 700 parametric pixels in several places like headlamps, rear combination lamps, front lower sensors, air vent garnishes and centre console indicator. The newly designed ‘H’ emblem at the front and rear uses the parametric lighting that adds up to the uniqueness of the car.

Hyundai says the E-GMP platform has allowed them to create ample legroom for all passengers, thanks to the flat floor design and front doors having no buttons, which adds to the virtual sense of space.
Like the Ioniq 5, it also gets a modular touchscreen dashboard with a 12-inch infotainment screen and a 12-inch digital instrument cluster. On the inside, dual-colour ambient lighting comes with a spectrum of 64 colours and six-dual colour themes.

Hyundai has not revealed any details on its powertrain and battery charging technology, though we expect it to carry the same powertrain as its hatchback sibling that comes with two powertrains: The base variant (rear-wheel drive) that offers 170PS and 350Nm and the all-wheel-drive variant (one motor at each axle) boasts a total of 306PS and 605Nm. Talking about the battery pack, there should be the option of both 58kWh and a 72.6kWh battery pack with a maximum range of up to 481km.
We expect the production of the new Ioniq 6 to begin next year followed by the launch in the international market on 2024.
