Hyundai has shared more information on the Ioniq 6 4-door electric coupe that debuted last month. The pricing and availability information has been retained for another day, however, Hyundai did share that the production will commence in the third quarter of 2022. The Ioniq 6 has already been listed on Hyundai’s Korean and some of the European and U.S. market websites.
Alright, let’s start with the dimensions then, shall we? The Ioniq 6 measures 4,855 mm long, 1,880 mm wide and 1,495 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,950 mm. Those numbers tell us that the Ioniq 6 is larger than the Model 3 but smaller than the Model S. However, an interesting fact is that the Ioniq 6 wheelbase is only 10 mm shorter than that of the Model S. But anyway, the wheel sizes range from 18- to 20-inches.
Now let’s jump straight to the business end of the story. There’ll be RWD and AWD options to choose from, as you might expect. Hyundai is not sharing the RWD details yet, but the AWD is gonna offer combined figures of 239 kW (325 metric hp) and 605 Nm (446 lb-ft); this one is claimed to sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds.
There’ll be two battery packs on offer depending on the variant. The 53 kWh pack in the RWD variant with 18-inch tyres is estimated to consume 14 kWh/100 km. The larger 77.4 kWh pack in the RWD with 18-inch tyres is estimated to offer a WLTP range of over 610 km (379+ mi) on a single charge.
As you probably know, the E-GMP architecture can support both 400-volt and 800-volt charging infrastructures, which means the Ioniq 6 can fill up from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes if you manage to find a 350 kW DC public fast-charger.
Inside, there’s a 12-inch driver display; a 12-inch central touchscreen; Bluetooth multi-connection support; 8-speaker Bose audio system; dual-color ambient lighting, and four type-C and one type-A USB ports. The front Relaxation Comfort Seats shown in the picture above are optional extras; they are apparently thinner than the standard ones and allow you to recline to a pretty good angle.
As for ADAS, the Ioniq 6 is equipped with the Hyundai SmartSense suite. These include Highway Driving Assist 2, Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Intelligent Speed Limit Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Safe Exit Warning, Remote Smart Parking Assist 2, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and a few more.
