It is based on the same Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform as the Ioniq 5
It's been a while since Hyundai took the wraps off the Ioniq 6 electric sedan which is the second Ioniq-branded model after the Ioniq 5. Pretty much everything was revealed other than the topic that mattered the most, its range on a single charge. Well, now Hyundai has finally given us that answer, and we can safely say that the Ioniq 6 can go the distance.
In the single-motor long-range (77.4kWh) option, the Ioniq 6 can go up to a WLTP-claimed 614km on a single charge. Switch from 18-inch wheels to larger 20-inch units, and that figure drops to 545km. The dual-motor 325PS AWD setup offers 584km (18-inch wheels) and 519km (20-inch wheels) of range, while the standard 53kWh option is capable of pushing 429km on a single charge.
Other tech wizardry in the Ioniq 6 includes it being based on the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform like the Ioniq 5, the dual-motor setup doing the 0-100kmph sprint in 5.1 seconds as well as it doubling up as a power source for electrical appliances.
What helps the electric sedan achieve this feat is its teardrop-shaped design that makes it one of the slickest Hyundais around with a drag coefficient of just 0.21. It also packs a futuristic cabin with the 12-inch digital instrument cluster and touchscreen infotainment system combined by a single dash frame complemented by dual-tone ambient lighting.
India is expected to get the Hyundai Ioniq 5 sometime later this year. While there’s no launch timeline yet for the Ioniq 6, we could expect it to show up in 2023.
