Hyundai introduced IONIQ 6 electric car, will run 482 km in single charge!


Hyundai has introduced the Ioniq 6 electric sedan, which is the third electric car in the Ioniq EV series. Earlier, the company had introduced 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 extract 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 aerodynamically-focused ‘single-curve’ design, which, Hyundai claims, helps optimize efficiency. It has flush door handles and cameras. At the rear, the electric sedan gets pixel-style LED tail-lights. One of its specialties 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 the company’s other brand Genesis. It includes dual 12-inch touchscreens and the two-spoke steering wheel also adds to the elegant and sporty look of the interiors. It measures 4,855mm in length, 1,880mm in width, 1,495mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,950mm.

The Ioniq 6 uses the brand’s E-GMP skateboard architecture, which the EV6 is built on top of. As we mentioned, Hyundai is yet to share the specifications of the EV, but going by the standard specifications of this platform, it can be expected that the car will support fast charging up to 350kW. Apart from this, the Ioniq 6 can also be offered with a choice of battery packs ranging from 58kWh to 77.4kWh capacity. The car can also be expected to get a range of over 482 km.

Also, Hyundai can be expected to offer the car in two powertrain configurations like the EV6, which are rear-wheel-drive with single motor and four-wheel-drive with dual motor options.
