The Hyundai IONIQ 6 in detail

July 14, 2022

Dimensions IONIQ 6

The IONIQ 6 is the second model in Hyundai’s IONIQ family. Although the IONIQ 5 and 6 differ visually, both cars are built on the E-GMP platform. The same platform that Kia’s EV6 is also built on. Now Hyundai is also sharing more figures of the 6, including its dimensions: 4,855 mm in length, 1,880 mm in width and a height of 1,495 mm. This makes it lower and longer than the IONIQ 5. The wheelbase is similar to the 5 at 2,950 mm.


Range and charging

Two battery packs will soon be available for the IONIQ 6: 53 kWh and 77.4 kWh. That former battery size is smaller than the lightest version in the IONIQ 5, which has 58 kWh. This is not entirely surprising, since the 6’s streamlined bodywork will be a lot more efficient at using battery energy compared to the more angular IONIQ 5. The 77.4 kWh is a familiar package, in fact, the IONIQ 6 also shares it with its technical brothers. However, the IONIQ 6 gets a lot further on that battery: an estimated 610 kilometers.


Hyundai is also proud of the car’s consumption: 14 kWh per 100 km. This makes it likely that even the basic version will already have about 400 kilometers of range. In addition, the 800V charging system is once again present, which allows the car to be charged from 10 to 80% in less than 20 minutes. Like the IONIQ 5, the IONIQ 6 also supports the vehicle-to-load (V2L) function. Allows you to charge electrical devices by hanging them from the car’s charging port. This way you can easily charge your drawing tablet when you are working in the middle of a square. Useful!



For now, the fastest IONIQ 6 is the version with the 77.4 kWh battery and AWD, where an electric motor can be found on each axle. This top version boasts 325 hp and 605 Nm of torque. In this configuration it accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. There is a very good chance that another faster version will be launched, in the form of the IONIQ 6 N.


The interior has many similarities to that of the IONIQ 5. It is a minimalist design with two large 12-inch screens. The screens display all the info you need, from navigation with available charging options along the route to battery status and driving info. The system also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can easily pair your smartphone. Two more screens can be found on either side of the dashboard, displaying the image of the digital door mirrors. Four colors are available for the interior: dark gray combined with light gray, dark olive green with light gray, black with light brown and all black. The mood lighting in the door panels, among others, is adjustable in as many as 64 different colors.



A lot of information, but the price is withheld from us for a while. What we can still report is that the IONIQ 6 will soon be available in twelve body colors, where we are very curious about the matte green paint and Ultimate Red Metallic.
