The , inspired by Hyundai’s Prophecy EV concept, made its North American Debut at AutoMobility Los Angeles.
The four-door electrified streamliner with a targeted estimated driving range of 340 miles (547 km) is equipped with ultra-fast charging that can charge the battery from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes. The IONIQ 6 is the second Hyundai model to ride on Hyundai’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that allows for dual motors, more interior space, and optimized performance. IONIQ 6 is part of Hyundai Motor Company’s plan to introduce 17 BEV models and sell more than 1.8 million BEV units worldwide by 2030. IONIQ 6 goes on sale spring 2023. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
“IONIQ 6 is well-positioned to compete in the EV segment for the millions of shoppers who are interested in transitioning to zero emissions transportation,” said José Muñoz, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. “IONIQ 6 fits the image, efficiency and sportiness that many owners desire. IONIQ 6 and its interior space, battery options, charging speed and all-wheel drive capability will exceed customer expectations.”
“We want our cars to always connect with customers on an emotional level,” said SangYup Lee, executive vice-president and head of Hyundai Design Center. “Depending on the owner’s lifestyle, the way of using a vehicle will be different, resulting in a different look – much like chess pieces on a board, each one with a distinct look and functionality, but part of the same family. Hyundai designs with diverse lifestyles in mind rather than with a one-style-fits-all approach.”
