The Ioniq 6 sedan is the third addition to the Ioniq EV family after the Ioniq 5 crossover and Ioniq hatchback
Hyundai has finally unveiled the Ioniq 6 electric sedan that will go on sale somewhere next year. The Ioniq 6 sedan was first previewed by the sleek Prophecy concept in 2022 and is based on the eGMP platform. The Hyundai’s Ioniq EV family currently has two models – Ioniq 5 crossover and the Ioniq hatchback. Having said this, here is everything that we know about the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan so far.
2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Electric Sedan
Exterior Design And Dimensions
Just like other modern electric vehicles, the Ioniq 6 too takes its inspiration from Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design language and boasts an aggressive and sharp design that makes it unique and attractive. This electric sedan features an aerodynamically-focused ‘single-curve’ silhouette that not only makes it good-looking but in addition to this, also makes it highly efficient with a claimed drag coefficient of 0.21. Other important styling elements include flush door handles and cameras in place of traditional ORVMs. Just like other Ioniq models, the Ioniq 6 electric sedan also gets pixel-style LED tail lights, a ducktail rear spoiler and a curved shoulder line. For those wondering, the Ioniq 6 measures 4855 mm in length, 1880 in width, and 1495 mm in height while the wheelbase is measured at 2960 mm. A quick look at dimensions is enough for us to conclude that Ioniq 6 is similar in size to other electric cars like the Tesla Model 3, Polestar 2, and BMW i4.
While Hyundai is yet to share more details about the interiors and features, we do know that the Ioniq 6 will feature a minimalistic design language for the dash up front. For starters, this electric sedan comes equipped with a flat-bottom, two-spoke steering wheel, a flat central console with large digital screens, and premium ambient lights to uplift the overall ambience of the cabin. Needless to say, the quality levels and the fit-finish levels are expected to be top-notch while the in-cabin experience too would be comfortable.
Powertrain, Performance, And Range
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is based on the E-GMP skateboard platform that is also utilised in the Kia EV6. This platform not only offers impressive dynamics and flexibility but in addition to this, can also house a number of powertrain options. While the Korean carmaker is yet to share details about the powertrain, we do expect it to offer the same 800v hardware that also powers the other Ioniq electric cars. This setup also allows up to 350 kW of fast charging. We also expect the brand to offer multiple battery packs to choose from ranging from 58 kWh to 77.4 kWh. The 77.4 kWh battery pack offers a range of over 450 km on a single charge. Moving on, two powertrain configurations are currently being offered by Hyundai in other Ioniq cars that include a single motor with a rear-wheel-drive setup and a dual-motor with a four-wheel-drive setup. The RWD variants boast a peak power output of 229 hp while the 4WD variants get a peak power output of 325 hp. The range-topping iteration on the other hand boasts a peak power output of 585 hp. This 585 hp setup is expected to power the Ioniq 6 N and will have a claimed sub-3.5 sec 0-100 kph time.
Hyundai Ioniq 6 Electric Sedan India Launch
Hyundai is yet to share the official launch timeline for the Ionic 6 electric sedan in India but is expected to bring this electric sedan to India via the CBU route. The Ioniq 6 electric sedan price on the other hand is expected to start from Rs 55-65 lakh (ex-showroom). The Korean carmaker is currently working on launching the Kona Electric facelift and the Hyundai Ioniq 5 in India in the coming months.
