Hyundai has rolled out the latest to join its burgeoning lineup of all-electric vehicles under the Ioniq sub-banner. The Hyundai Ioniq 6, dubbed an “electrified streamliner” by its maker, is clearly focused on delivering a lounge-type interior to go with the high-output, extended-range, quick-charging electric powertrain we’ve already met in the Ioniq 5 crossover.
The E-GMP architecture underpinning the Ioniq 6 gives it a 77.4-kWh battery, 800-volt charging capacity on ultra-fast charging stations (allowing for 10-to-80-percent charging in 18 minutes) and a range that’s given as 610 km on the European WLTP testing cycle. That should translate into a North American range of between 400-450 km.
Buyers can choose between single-motor (RWD) and two-motor (AWD) formats. Thew dual-motor version should deliver an output north of 300 hp, with 220 hp the expected figure for the single-motor variant; these numbers are still to be confirmed.
