2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is shaping to be a Slick-Looking EV Sedan
- Our spy photographers captured an unveiled prototype of the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6.
- The Ioniq 6 is really a sedan model and appears much like Hyundai’s Prediction concept.
- We expect the Ioniq 6 to debut in 2022 and be available across the U.S. by 2023.
Hyundai continues to expand the Ioniq EV lineup, and we’ve seen a model of the forthcoming Ioniq 6 sedan testing ahead of its launch scheduled for later in the year. ioniq 6 features a low-slung elegant design that contrasts the bulky Ioniq 5 and the upcoming Ioniq 7 three-row SUV and is expected to be competitive against Tesla Model 3 when it becomes available within the U.S.
While the Ioniq 6 is influenced by its predecessor, the Prophecy concept Hyundai will be showcased in 2020. The basic version is more upright than the design with a radically shaped shape.We can still discern from the camouflage the taillights and headlights look like they are from the future.. The circular greenhouse and the smooth body sides provide an aesthetic that is more chiseled and less sharp than the 80s-style Ioniq 5. At the same time, the shorter front overhang and the attractive wheel design make for an athletic posture.
We expect the Ioniq 6 to use the same E-GMP platform, Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6. This means that it will provide identical powertrain options.The Ioniq 5 is available in single- and dual-motor versions varying from 168 hp to 320 hp. It also comes with two different sizes of battery packs that provide between 220 miles and 300 miles of range EPA-rated.
Our spy photographer couldn’t capture any images of the interior. However, we think that it’s likely that the Ioniq 6 will aim for the feeling of a lounge in the interior.It’s likely to be a five-seater, with the rear bench seat, and it seems to be a traditional trunk, not a hatchback.
Hyundai has already confirmed its plans to launch its Ioniq 6 sometime this year. However, it may not be available across the U.S. until sometime in 2023.
Is the Hyundai Ioniq Electric reliable?
It scored highly for reliability and build quality, with only a small percentage of owners telling us they experienced one or more faults within the first year, mostly related to the electrics, engine or gearbox.
Why is the Hyundai Ioniq so efficient?
The efficiency of the Ioniq Electric comes largely from the drivetrain. The battery is a 28kWh lithium ion polymer that can be charged up to 80% in 24 minutes using a 100kW rapid charger (a 55kW rapid charger takes 33%). The standard 7kW slow charger can top off the battery in 4 hours 40 minutes.
