Hyundai Ioniq 6 Specifications & Features
With its most recent electric vehicle (EV) model, the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 car, Hyundai hopes to challenge the Tesla Model 3. This four-door shares parts with the taller and boxier Ioniq 5, which belongs to the company’s Ioniq subbrand of electric vehicles. This indicates that single- and dual-motor variants, as well as two battery-pack choices, will be available. In its longest-range SE Long Range configuration, the 6 will have an estimated maximum driving range of 361 miles thanks to the 77.4-kWh battery pack and aerodynamic form. The dramatic Prophecy concept from Hyundai served as inspiration for its style, and the Ioniq 6 is as fast as it is attractive and futuristic. In addition, compared to Hyundai’s gas-powered Sonata and Elantra sedans, it boasts a more opulent interior and has more onboard technology.
The Ioniq 6 is a new addition to the lineup. It will slot in numerically between the Ioniq 5 and the upcoming Ioniq 7 but is a sedan with a more low-slung profile than those taller crossovers. In previous Ioniq models, Hyundai has prioritized lounge-like comfort, and the 6 is no different. The interior of the cabin exhibits a comparable contemporary and basic look to that of the Ioniq 5, and the flat floor contributes to the impression of space. It offers seating for five people over two rows as a typical four-door sedan.
Hyundai Ioniq 6 Motor, Battery, Range & Performance
The Ioniq 6 and the Ioniq 5 share a base, and both feature a similar powerplant. The rear wheels of the standard model are driven by a single electric motor with 149 hp. The Long Range battery pack gives single-motor vehicles 225 hp. Due to the front and back electric motors, the more expensive dual-motor variants with 320 hp only have the larger battery. The Ioniq 6 is supposed to reach 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds because of the more potent setup, according to Hyundai. Hyundai’s projection is, in our opinion, conservative. The Ioniq 6’s handling is nonetheless quite entertaining despite its smooth ride and quiet, well-isolated cabin. Its low center of gravity makes it feel stable in turns, and the driver can quickly switch between several regenerative braking modes using the paddles on the steering wheel. The Ioniq 6’s maximum driving range, according to the EPA, is 361 miles. The largest range for the vehicle, the Ioniq 6 SE RWD Long Range, gives it a 58-mile advantage over the smaller Ioniq 5. The lowest Ioniq 6 has a 270-mile rating for the all-wheel-drive model, which is still impressive.
Hyundai Ioniq 6 Mileage

|SE Long Range
The Ioniq 6 starts at $42,715 for the base SE Standard Range model with the smaller battery, making it a little less expensive than the Ioniq 5. Its powertrain lineup is comparable as well, with two battery pack choices, an RWD single motor configuration, and an additional $3500 option for a dual-motor AWD variant. Given that it has the highest estimated range of any model and more horsepower than the base Standard Range car, we believe the SE Long Range offers the best value. Only the larger battery pack is included with the SEL and Limited trim levels.

In a more fashionable package, the Ioniq 6 sedan combines everything we appreciate about its crossover sibling. The Ioniq 5 SUV’s clever digital outside mirrors and heavily computerized dashboard won’t be available in the United States. Nonetheless, the vehicle’s striking outward appearance and stress-relieving driving range are both enticing entry-level prices.
