The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is an upcoming electric car that is set to be released in 2024. The Ioniq 6 will be the first car to be built on Hyundai’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The Ioniq 6 will have a range of over 310 miles and will be able to charge from 0 to 80% in just 18 minutes.
2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 promises better range same power as Ioniq 5
Specs for the new electric sedan are already in there and the streamlined shape could help it get a 400-mile range estimate from the EPA.
EV The Ioniq 6
The Ioniq 6 “Electrified Streamline” sedan is as slippery as it looks with a coefficient of drag (Cd) of 0.21 the lowest Hyundai has ever achieved.
With similar powertrain and battery options as the Ioniq 5 the Ioniq 6’s 610km estimated WTLP range translates to over 400 miles of EPA-rated range for rear-drive models with the larger 77.4-kWh battery.
Actual US market specs won’t be revealed until this November at the Los Angeles Auto Show with North American production scheduled for early 2023.
New 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6
One look at the new Ioniq 6 “electric streamline” sedan to see why the moniker fits. Its 116.1-inch wheelbase is 2.0 inches shorter than the Ioniq 5 but its 191.1-inch body is 8.6 inches longer than the Ioniq 5 Elongated to a sleek shape with a unique tapered “stern” rear end resulting in a very smooth 0.21 drag coefficient.
The fact that its roof is 4.1 inches shorter than the Ioniq 5 certainly helped Hyundai VP of Design Simon Loasby and his design team achieve this goal target, but the lowered roofline has the added benefit of significantly reducing the cross-sectional area of the Ioniq 6 which makes its low coefficient of drag (Cd) even more pronounced as total drag is a function of Cd times cross-sectional area.
On paper the Ioniq 5’s powertrain offerings look very familiar as both cars are built on Hyundai’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). You can choose between single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive configurations.
total power The output of the dual-motor version matches that of the Ioniq 5 while the AWD Ioniq 6 makes 321 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque.
Likewise, rear-drive models with either 53.0-kWh or 77.4-kWh battery packs will be available in two battery capacities while AWD models will only have the larger battery pack. Like the Ioniq 5 the powertrain’s 800-volt architecture allows the car to take advantage of the high-output 350 According to reports the kW DC fast charging station will boost the battery from 10% to 80% in 18 minutes.
But the Ioniq 6 is said to be significantly more efficient than the Ioniq 5 and has a significantly improved range. Hyundai predicts that the rear-drive version with the 77.4 kWh battery will have a range of more than 610 kilometers on the European WLTP cycle.
By comparing it to the confirmed Ioniq 5 WLTP and EPA figures We estimate that the Ioniq 6 can get an EPA rating of about 400 miles.
The slick shape of the Ioniq 6 plays a huge role here but the Hyundai engineers we spoke to also said the 6 also benefits from some powertrain optimization developments including the inverter reworked motor with next-generation semiconductors which now feature hairpin windings and re-optimized Control strategy for switching between single-motor and dual-motor operation in the all-wheel drive version.
The streamlined Ioniq 6 looks distinctly different from the Minecraft-inspired Ioniq 5, but if you look closely you’ll see that the pixelated details built into the headlights and taillights are a signature element of the Ioniq.
Inside the dual-screen dashboard/infotainment interface and Despite the slightly shorter wheelbase the 6 feels spacious front and rear. Our 6-foot-2 tester was able to sit very comfortably behind itself a neat trick considering the aggressively tapered roofline.
On the other hand designers are more excited about their decisions than we are With a centrally mounted window switch that allows for bare doors we’re not sure how speed-synchronized ambient lighting which gets brighter as speed increases will work in the real world. We assume/hope there will be a “close” button.
Specific details on the configuration performance and pricing of the North American version of the Ioniq 6 won’t be revealed until November at the Los Angeles Auto Show and production of units heading to those shores won’t begin until the first quarter of 2023.
But we’re still excited to go through Truly stunning range estimates revealed by Hyundai. The Ioniq 6 looks set to give a huge boost to the competition which will be even more important given the E-GMP platform’s 800-volt architecture and the excellent DC fast charging capabilities we already have Experienced Ioniq 5.
The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a sleek and stylish electric sedan that offers an impressive range of features and performance. Its 100kWh battery pack gives it a range of up to 300 miles, making it ideal for long-distance travel.
The Ioniq 6 also comes standard with fast-charging capabilities, allowing you to charge the battery from empty to 80% in just under 30 minutes. Inside, the Ioniq 6 features a spacious and comfortable cabin with plenty of room for five passengers.
The infotainment system is easy to use and comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Overall, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is a well-rounded electric sedan that should appeal to a wide range of buyers.
