At the Ioniq 5's debut in May 2021, Jose Munoz, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor North America, confirmed that the Hyundai Ioniq 6 would be released in 2022 and he was true to his word. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is the second member of the new EV sub-brand 'Ioniq'. As pursued by the Prophecy concept presented in 2021, it takes design inspiration from historical models while becoming a bridge to the future.
Like the Sonata, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a mid-size sedan, but with different proportions. As a result, despite the smaller body, it offers as much space for occupants and luggage than the traditional combustion engine model. That's the beauty of Hyundai Motor Group's E-GMP platform, which underpins the bespoke electric car, which has a flat floor and maximizes cabin space thanks to the lack of an engine compartment and wheels pushed into the corners with short overhangs. The Ioniq 6 battery pack is in a position that gives them a low center of gravity. This allows them to deliver improved cornering performance and offer good stability at high speed. The highly aerodynamic body design of the Ioniq 6 complements the benefits of its structural design. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 has a range of over 610 kilometers from the well-known 77 kWh battery.
There are three motor-battery combinations. The basic version has a 53 kWh battery that replaces the 58 kWh battery known from the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5. The advantage of this variant with a smaller battery: in combination with rear-wheel drive and 18-inch wheels, power consumption of less than 14 kWh/100 km is possible. The 77 kWh battery is available with either rear or all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel drive has a range of 614 km.
Thanks to the 800-volt system, the battery (like the sister models) can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. Bi-directional charging is also back on board.
How Much Can a Hyundai Ioniq 6 Tow?There are a few different models of the Hyundai IONIQ 6. The maximum you can tow is 1600kg with either of the rear-whell or all wheel drive Long Range models. Following in the footsteps of the Ioniq 5, this makes the Ioniq 6 a good car for towing a caravan or trailer.
