The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6 is set to land this year. The car is now undergoing a series of pre-launch tests. In particular, the other day a prototype was spotted in Northern Scandinavia.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a 4-door sports coupe coming to challenge the Tesla Model 3 which is the global EV best-seller. Thus, Hyundai’s model will have to offer something special to be competitive. The company can already boast a successful electric model from the same family – the Ioniq 5. Consumers have accepted very it very well.
What is known about the Ioniq 6 today?
Its design is inspired by the Hyundai Prophecy concept from 2020 (pictured), shares the platform, components, and technologies with the Ioniq 5, including, we hope, a useful charging V2L function. We also expect it will have a minimalistic interior similar to the Ioniq 5’s.
The car will have flush door handles, but fortunately, the Prophecy concept’s suicide doors themselves won’t carry over to the production model. Perhaps, the Ioniq 6 will have a brake light.
On the technical part, the coupe will offer single- and dual-motor setups, a 56-kWh or a 77.45-kWh battery pack enabling over 300 miles of range.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is set to go on sale next year, but its reveal is a this-year event (some sources hint at springtime). As for the entry price, it should not be more than the Tesla Model 3’s $45,000 in the USA (closer to £50,000 in the UK).
