Yesterday, Thursday 17th November 2022, Hyundai released more details about next year's highly anticipated IONIQ 6 at the LA Auto Show.
Read below to find out what we know so far.
IONIQ 6 Platform
The IONIQ 6 will sit on the E-GMP platform, which is currently used on the IONIQ 5 and other battery-electric vehicles in the Hyundai brand, such as the Kia EV6 and the Genesis GV60.
Power and Speed
The 77.4kWh battery will be able to reach a maximum range of 340 miles on a single charge (front-wheel drive variant - FWD), whilst the all-wheel drive (AWD) model will get around 310 miles of range.
This AWD version will produce 320hp and 446 lb-feet of torque from a pair of dual motors located at the back of the car, with the FWD model producing a lower, but still brilliant, 225hp and 258 lb-feet of torque.
Lastly, Hyundai says that the car will be able to travel from 0 - 60mph in under five seconds.
Battery and Charging
Both versions will get fast-charging capabilities and support both 400-volt and 800-volt infrastructure thanks to the E-GMP platform.
The platform offers 800-volt charging as standard, but Hyundai says that it can accept 400-volt charging without an adapter by using an inverter and a motor to boost 400 volts to 800 volts.
On a DC fast charger (350kW), Hyundai claim that the IONIQ 6 can go from 10% - 80% charge in just 18 minutes.
In 5 minutes, it can regain around 65 miles of range on the same 350kW fast charger.
When you're charging at home, a Level 2 charger will give the IONIQ 6 a full charge in just over seven hours.
