Hyundai Ioniq 6 Review, Pricing, Specs, Power, and Performance

Hyundai Motor Company shared new information about the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 at the LA Auto Show on November 17, 2022. Hyundai Ioniq 6 all-electric car made its debut in June. The hotly anticipated follow-up to the Ioniq 5 crossover will go on sale in the spring of 2023 and has an estimated range of 340 miles. 

This is another step toward the company’s goal to speed up the development of electric and self-driving vehicles in the U.S. by 2025. Hyundai has put a lot of money toward its goal. The company recently said that it would put more than $10 billion into autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles (EVs), and robotics to help it reach its goals.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 comes with a 77.4-kWh battery pack as standard, and the 225-hp single-motor rear-wheel-drive version has the longest range. The optional 320-horsepower dual-motor all-wheel-drive system cuts the range to an estimated 310 miles. The Ioniq 6 is built on the same E-GMP platform as other Hyundai and Kia EVs, but its low drag coefficient of 0.22 makes it more efficient and increases its range. Hyundai says it is still waiting for full EPA certification, but these estimates are for the U.S., so the final numbers aren’t likely to change much. We can’t wait to put the Ioniq 6 through our 75 mph highway range test to see how well it works in real life.

Overview

Hyundai wants its new electric car, the Hyundai Ioniq 6, which is a sedan, to compete with the Tesla Model 3. This four-door car is part of the company’s Ioniq brand, which is made up of electric cars. It shares parts with the taller and boxier Ioniq 5, which has two more doors. This means that there will be options for both one motor and two motors, but only one battery pack. 

With its aerodynamic shape and standard 77.4-kWh battery pack, the 6 has an estimated driving range of 340 miles in some configurations. Hyundai’s dramatic Prophecy concept influenced its design, and the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is as fast as it is futuristic and stylish. It also has a more luxurious interior than the Model 3, and when compared to Hyundai’s gas-powered Sonata and Elantra sedans, it has more onboard technology.

What’s New

  • The second electric vehicle in the Ioniq line, after the Ioniq 5 of 2022.
  • The first all-electric sedan from Hyundai
  • Changes from what Hyundai has done in the past
  • With a drag coefficient of.21, the focus is on aerodynamics.
  • It has a 77.4-kilowatt-hour battery and uses the same Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) as the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6.
  • Range nearly 380 miles longer
  • At 14 kWh per 62 miles, the battery is very efficient.
  • Based on the concept design of “Prophecy”
  • The front and back of the car now have a new “H” logo.
  • You can buy it on the metaverse, and it’s also a non-fungible token (NFT)
  • Before sales start in the U.S. in the first part of the year, the item is made in Korea.
  • Hyundai hinted at a new N model.

Is the Hyundai Ioniq Electric a Good Car?

If you think an electric car (EV) might work for you, the Hyundai Ioniq is the Korean company’s answer to the Volkswagen e-Golf and Nissan Leaf. The Hyundai Ioniq is also available as a gasoline-electric hybrid and a plug-in hybrid, but the model shown here is the all-electric version.

It is powered by a 28 kW lithium-ion polymer battery, which gives it an official range of 174 miles, but it seems more likely that it can go 130–140 miles before needing to be charged again. From empty, it takes 12 hours to charge the car battery with a regular plug, 4 hours with Hyundai’s home-installed Pod Point, or 33 minutes with a 50 kW fast charger. Hyundai says that even though the Ioniq is full of electricity, it is no harder to drive than a regular car.

Still, electric power is clear in some ways, like how the car starts moving right away from a stop and runs almost silently (except for a hum that alerts pedestrians). Even if you’re driving, you can still have fun. The flat batteries in the electric model’s chassis give it a low center of gravity, which is also helped by the aluminum bonnet and trunk. So, the Ioniq’s corners are flat and true, which you can make the most of with its responsive steering.

How is the Hyundai Ioniq 6’s Tech?

From a hardware point of view, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is very easy to use. That means it has two 12-inch screens and a nice metal case. You can use both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to connect your best smartphone, but you have to plug it in to use them. The car has both USB-A and USB-C ports, so you can use either type of phone cord. The user interface is a mix of physical buttons and easy-to-use touchscreen menus, just like the Ioniq 5.

Hyundai made some exciting changes to the tech suite in the Ioniq 6. This is the first car the brand makes that can get updates over the air (OTA). Changes can be made to both the software and the hardware of the car, such as the battery. In a market segment started by the Tesla Model 3, the OTA features are, to say the least, impressive. There are some fun things to try out in the menus, like the new EV tune-up feature. With this customizable drive mode, you can change how the steering feels, how sensitive the acceleration is, and even how much horsepower the car puts out.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Interior

Even though it has a small footprint, the cabin feels big inside. There is a lot of storage space, including a large cubby for large items where a traditional closet would have been. There are also great storage options inside the door. The designers mounted the controls for the windows and door locks on the center console. This keeps the doors clear of controls.

They use creative fabrics, textures, patterns, and lighting to make the space more interesting. You can tell that design is important on the inside and outside. The driver information and entertainment screens are a total of 24 inches and are well-designed in the dash. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Hyundai’s Smart Sense suite of safety features, will come as standard.

There is a lot of room to stretch out in the second row because there is no transmission tunnel. A taller person might not have enough headroom because of the roof’s slope, but a normal-sized person will have plenty. There are optional Relaxation Comfort Seats that are made just for Hyundai’s EV models. They are 30% thinner and 30% lighter, which makes them more efficient and gives them more room.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Design

Hyundai calls it a “pure EV streamliner,” and it looks great. It has a clean, aerodynamic shape with elegant character lines, and it looks like it’s going somewhere in the future. Hyundai says that the Hyundai Ioniq 6 has a drag coefficient of 0.21, which is only behind the Mercedes-Benz EQS and Tesla Model S. That’s the same as the Lucid Air, which makes the Ioniq 6 a member of a very good group.

The Ioniq 5’s pixel design is carried over to both the outside and the inside of this sleek sedan. As a way to stand out, you can expect to see this on all Hyundai electric cars in the future.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 Driver Assistance Features

You can count on the Hyundai IONIQ 6 to have a lot of driver assistance features. All of these features fall under the Hyundai SmartSense and Advanced Driver Assistance programs.

Owners will be able to use Highway Driving Assist 2, which lets the car change lanes automatically when it’s safe to do so. There is also smart cruise control, forward collision avoidance, and evasive steering assist. There are also semi-autonomous features like intelligent speed limit assist and high beam assist. The driver attention warning system can help drivers stay focused on long trips.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is built on the same platform as the Ioniq 5, and its powertrain is mostly the same as that of the Ioniq 5. The base model has 225 horsepower, and the rear wheels are powered by a single electric motor. The 320-hp dual-motor versions cost more, but they have all-wheel drive thanks to electric motors in the front and back. Hyundai says that the Ioniq 6 can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds with the more powerful set-up.

Based on our first test drive, we think Hyundai’s estimate is low. Once we get an Ioniq 6 into our office to test, we expect to get a faster result. Even though the Hyundai Ioniq 6 has a smooth ride and a quiet, well-sealed cabin, it is still fun to drive. Its low center of gravity makes it feel stable when turning, and paddles on the steering wheel let the driver choose between different regenerative braking modes on the fly.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 Specs

This new Hyundai EV has a 77.4 kWh electric motor at its core. This motor, along with the car’s aerodynamic design, should give the IONIQ 6 a range of about 379 miles. With its Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) architecture, which can support both 400-volt and 800-volt charging infrastructures, the new 2024 IONIQ 6 is also shaping up to be one of the fastest-charging EVs on the market. 

When connected to an 800-volt electric car charger, the IONIQ 6 can be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent in as little as 18 minutes. Want to know more about the specs of the 2024 IONIQ 6? Please contact an EV expert at Mirak Hyundai today.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 Battery, Range, And Charging

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 has a 77.4-kWh battery with a long range that can be set up to drive either the back wheels or all wheels. The car will have two engines, which will give it a total of 320 horsepower.

The 350-kW charger can charge a battery from 10% to 80% in less than 18 minutes, thanks to the E-GMP technology. Like the IONIQ 5, the Hyundai IONIQ 6 can charge other devices, like laptops, and can also charge cars through a feature called “Vehicle-to-load.”

How Comfortable is the Hyundai Ioniq 6?

The Hyundai Ioniq 6’s leather-wrapped seats were easy to get comfortable in quickly. They provide enough support, and the material is soft and warm. Our fully loaded test car also has heating and air conditioning, which makes things even better. And, again, because of the long wheelbase, there is plenty of legroom in both rows.

The Hyundai Ioniq’s soft suspension tuning surprised us in a good way. Some EVs can crash hard over speed bumps because they are so heavy, but the Hyundai was always very well-behaved, and there were a lot of speed bumps to test it on. This car was made for the Korean market, so it’s possible that the U.S. version has a different tune. But we would like things to stay the same.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 was also very good at keeping outside noise down. We never went fast enough on the highway to stress-test the wind noise, but driving in the city was fine. This car is a great place to get away from the noise and chaos of a busy city like Seoul.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 Color Options

There are 12 exterior colors for the Hyundai IONIQ 6, including Gravity Gold Matte, Abyss Black Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Curated Silver Metallic, Nocturne Gray Metallic, Nocturne Gray Matte, Transmission Blue Pearl, Biophilic Blue Pearl, Ultimate Red Metallic, Digital Green Pearl, Digital Green Matte, and Byte Blue.

There are four colors for the interior: dark gray with light gray, dark olive green with light gray, black with pale brown, and black with pale brown.

New Hyundai Ioniq 6 Price and Release Date

After the Digital World premiere in July, people were able to book tickets online. After production starts in Korea, sales will start in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2023. The same thing happened with the Hyundai Ioniq 5.

When it goes on sale in Australia in the first quarter of 2023, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 range will likely be similar to that of the similar Ioniq 5. This includes the car you see here, which is the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version with the long-range 77.4 kWh battery and 20-inch alloy wheels that come as standard.

The final price hasn’t been set yet, but local sources say it will cost between $70,000 and $80,000 before taxes and fees. It would be right above the $80,000 Tesla Model 3 Long Range. But the Hyundai Ionic is 4855 mm long, which is 225 mm longer than its American competitor. It also has a 195mm longer wheelbase, much more room inside, is better made, and comes with more standard features, which we’ll talk about in a bit.

In the UK, you can already put down a deposit on a new Hyundai Ioniq 6. It is expected to come out at the beginning of 2023, and more models will be delivered as the year goes on. Remember that everyone who buys or leases a new Hyundai Ioniq 6 also gets a great five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty from the company.

Why the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is Worth Waiting for?

If you’re thinking about buying your first electric car, the constant release of new and improved models might put you off. You don’t want to hear about “the next big thing” on the day you get your order.

In general, we’d say that now is a good time for many people to buy an electric car. As of 2022, pure electric cars make up about 15% of the UK’s new car market, so we’re well past the “early adopters” stage, and technological advances are now pretty small. Even though the latest electric vehicles (EVs) might be able to go a few more miles on a charge than their predecessors, we won’t see a big jump in range until solid-state batteries are invented, which won’t happen for years.

So, if you’re ready to order your first electric car, why should you wait for the Hyundai Ioniq 6? The first customer vehicles probably won’t arrive in the UK until 2023, and long waiting lists are likely due to high demand.

Pros & Cons Of the Car

Pros

  • Distance of almost 380 miles

Cons

  • The cabin is small, especially in the backseat, because the car has been streamlined.
  • Another EV in the middle price range instead of a cheaper one
  • All buttons were taken off the front door, which was a sign that the design was too futuristic.
