A few months ago, Hyundai presented its new electric sedan, the IONIQ 6. This long-awaited sedan, defined by the Korean company as an “electrified streamliner”, stands out mainly for its well-worked aerodynamics, since it has a Cx of just 0.21. This allows you to achieve adjusted consumption, which translates into a very wide range about the capacity of your batteries.
The model sits on the E-GMP modular platform already seen in the IONIQ 5. It is available with two packs, one of 53 kWh (which can only be associated with a “single motor” rear-wheel drive configuration) and another of 77 .4 kWh (available with both “single motor” rear-wheel drive and “dual motor” all-wheel drive). Later the range will be completed with a high-performance model N.
Thanks to its 800-volt electrical architecture, the Hyundai IONIQ 6 can charge at a maximum of 239 kW of DC power. This allows it to go from 10 to 80% charge in just 18 minutes, a leading figure in its category (segment D). In addition, it also has bidirectional charging (V2L).
Although at the time of its presentation some estimated specifications were revealed (range, consumption…), now Hyundai has revealed the final approved data. The 53 kWh model achieves a consumption of just 13.9 kWh/100 km, while its range remains at 429 km WLTP, which highlights its high efficiency.
The Hyundai IONIQ 6 competes in the D segment
The 77.4 kWh 2WD version with 18-inch wheels advertises 14.3 kWh/100 km (16 kWh/100 km with 20-inch wheels) and a maximum range of 614 km WLTP (545 km WLTP with 20-inch wheels). ). The 77.4 kWh AWD variant with 18-inch wheels makes do with 15.1 kWh/100 km (16.9 kWh/100 km with 20-inch wheels) and 583 km WLTP (519 km WLTP with 20-inch wheels ).
“From the beginning of the development of IONIQ 6, we set out to make it a leading all-electric car,” explains Jae Ho Huh, Head of Sub-Medium Project Management Center at Hyundai Motor Company. “To become the world leader in electric vehicles, we are committed to delivering the best performance and ownership experience. “
“We have put all our efforts into designing the most efficient car in the electric vehicle segment,” adds Byung Hoon Min, Director of Hyundai Motor Company’s Total Vehicle Performance Development Center. “Our focus on improving aerodynamics helped deliver one of the longest range fully electric vehicles available, which will reduce customer anxiety about the range and help grow the segment.”
