The all-electric Hyundai IONIQ 6, with its ‘streamlined’ design, is the direct opposite to the boxy and angular IONIQ 5 in terms of styling.
The company says that the IONIQ 6 “implements the Hyundai Look design strategy that gives each model a unique appearance, like chess pieces. By taking a customer-centric direction, Hyundai designs with diverse lifestyles in mind rather than with a one-style-fits-all approach.”
The drag coefficient of the IONIQ 6 is just 0.21, leading Hyundai to describe the car as an ‘Electrified Streamliner’.
The ultra-low drag coefficient is a result of features such as its low nose, active air flaps at the front, wheel gap reducers, and optional slim digital side mirrors. There’s also an elliptical wing-inspired spoiler with winglet, slight boat-tail structure, and separation traps on both sides of the rear bumper. Underneath the car, there’s a full cover of the undercarriage, optimised deflectors and reduced wheel-arch gap.
The IONIQ 6 also integrates over 700 Parametric Pixels in various places, such as headlamps, rear combination lamps, front lower sensors, air vent garnishes and centre console indicator.
There’s also a newly designed Hyundai ‘H’ badge on the front and rear of the vehicle.
The IONIQ 6 world premiere will take place in July, when Hyundai will reveal the full specifications.
