We mentioned in a previous blog post that the starting price of the IONIQ 6 was going to be around £55K - but that was for the 'First Edition' specification.
Now, Hyundai has lowered the pricing of this all-new EV to £46,745 with the introduction of the entry-level model - and it's available to order now.
The IONIQ 6 follows on the E-GMP platform that is found in the IONIQ 5 but offers you a choice between a 58kWh or 77.4kWh battery pack, which is capable of producing 338 miles of range thanks to its sleek and slippery aerodynamic design.
And when it comes to specs, the IONIQ 6 will come in two variants - Premium & Ultimate, something we have commonly seen across the Hyundai range, with the latter offering you a choice of rear or four-wheel drive.
The rear-wheel drive comes with 225bhp and 350Nm of torque that is capable of producing a 0-62mph time of 7.4 seconds and a top speed of 115mph.
The more powerful four-wheel drive model produces 321bhp and 605Nm of torque, lowering the 0-62mph time to 5.1 seconds, with the top speed remaining the same but the range coming down to 322 miles on this drivetrain.
As standard, the IONIQ 6 Premium comes with 20" alloy wheels, LED lights (front & rear), electronically adjustable and heated seats, a wireless phone charger, and a 12.3" touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.
The Ultimate model gets an upgrade with seat memory function, ventilated seats, electric sunroof, blind-spot monitoring, remote parking assist, head-up display, and an upgraded sound system. (We know, a LOT!)
All variants of the IONIQ 6 come with an 800v onboard charging system with 350kW ultra-fast charger compatibility.
The E-GMP architecture can support both 400v and 800v charging, with 800v charging as standard. Using a rapid charger, the IONIQ 6 can charge from 10 - 60% in just 18 minutes.
