2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 | What We Know So Far!
Hyundai Ioniq 6
Even though Hyundai previewed the Ioniq 7 big SUV with the SEVEN concepts, the Ioniq 6 has not yet been seen in production form.
However, we will soon see the electric vehicle because a prototype was seen in Europe undergoing final testing with less disguise.
We’re looking forward to seeing the production model with its fastback-like rear end, even if it’s not as interesting as the Prophecy concept.
Here are the major highlights of the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6:
- A prototype of the future 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 was spotted.
- The Ioniq 6 is a sedan that resembles Hyundai’s Prophecy concept car.
- The Ioniq 6 is expected to debut in 2022 and go on sale in the United States by 2023.
Hyundai is expanding its Ioniq EV portfolio, and a prototype of the future Ioniq 6 car has been sighted testing ahead of its expected introduction later this year.
Compared to the boxy Ioniq 5 and the impending Ioniq 7 three-row SUV, the Ioniq 6 has a low-slung, elegant appearance and will most likely compete with the Tesla Model 3 after it is on sale in the United States within the next year or two.
Hyundai’s says to the Tesla Model 3 rides on a set of aero-optimized wheels and features a tiny quarter window that hides the Ioniq 5’s pop-out door handles.
As a result, it’s plain to see how the roofline slopes towards the back, which would inevitably reduce available headroom for rear passengers.
The back overhang is relatively long for a specialized EV, but this should translate to a reasonably substantial cargo area.
Although the Ioniq 6’s design is based on Hyundai’s Prophecy concept car from 2020, the production version has more proper proportions than that dramatic-looking model.
Even still, the headlights and taillights look similarly futuristic through the camouflage.
The rounded greenhouse and smooth bodysides give the Ioniq 5 a far less angular and chiseled appearance, while the short front overhang and innovative wheel design give it an athletic stance.
The taillights poking through the camouflage reveal the Ioniq 5’s pixel lighting design.
The rear camera and third brake light are likely to be hidden below the trunk lid disguise, while the uncovered rear windscreen reveals the Ioniq 6 will be a sedan rather than a more practical liftback.
The EV should easily stand out with a built-in spoiler that mirrors the design.
The Ioniq 6 is expected to be built on the same E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, which means it will have similar engine options.
The Ioniq 5 is available in single- and dual-motor models with outputs ranging from 168 to 320 horsepower and two battery pack sizes with EPA-rated ranges of 220 to 303 miles.
Inside, the Ioniq 6 will strive for a lounge-like atmosphere. It’ll most likely be a five-seater with a bench seat in the back, and it doesn’t look like a hatchback.
Launch Date & Price
Hyundai has already stated that the Ioniq 6 will be released this year, although it might not be sold in the U.S.A until 2023. Estimate a starting price of $42,000.
