Hyundai IONIQ 6 to offer 378-mile range

The Hyundai IONIQ 6 offers an electric range of over 378 miles (WLTP) on one charge from its 77.4 kWh battery combined with the car’s aerodynamic styling.

The IONIQ 6 will also deliver an estimated energy consumption of under 14 kWh/100 km, making it one of the most energy-efficient EVs on the market.

The car will feature Hyundai’s 800v architecture to enable ultra-rapid charging.

Hyundai is referring to the IONIQ 6 as an ‘Electrified Streamliner’, with a long (2,950mm) wheelbase and overall length of 4,855mm.

The IONIQ 6’s interior features Dual Colour Ambient Lighting, allowing a driver to customize the look and feel of the interior cabin by selecting from a spectrum of 64 colours and six pre-selected themes. The Speed Sync Lighting mode changes the brightness of the interior lighting based on the vehicle’s speed.

The EV Performance Tune-up system allows the driver to adjust steering effort, motor power, accelerator pedal sensitivity and driveline mode. Drivers can create a variety of different combinations with just a few button clicks to meet their individual needs. 

The IONIQ 6 is available with a range of drive motors and battery packs. The long-range 77.4-kWh battery can be mated with two electric motor layouts, either rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD). The top-of-the-line dual motor setup is an AWD option producing a combined power output of 239 kW and 605 Nm of torque. This configuration can provide acceleration from 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds.

The energy consumption of the 53 kWh standard battery with 18-inch tyres and RWD motor option is estimated to be under 14 kWh/100 km, according to WLTP, making the IONIQ 6 one of the most energy-efficient vehicles on the market. 

IONIQ 6’s E-GMP architecture can support both 400v and 800v charging infrastructures, with 800v charging as standard.

IONIQ 6, like the IONIQ 5, provides a vehicle-to-load (V2L) function that allows customers to charge any electric devices – ideal for powering necessities during a power outage, camping or outdoor projects. V2L is enabled using an available accessory adaptor and goes into the outside charging port. In addition to the outside power outlet, there is a second outlet underneath the back row seat for charging laptops, phones and other devices.

The IONIQ 6 is due to begin production in the third quarter of 2022.
