According to the globally harmonized light vehicle test procedure, Hyundai Motor Company announced that its IONIQ 6 electrified streamliner is ready to deliver an all-electric range of 614 km per charge. The IONIQ 6 will be one of the most energy-efficient electric vehicles (EV) on the market with a WLTP rated energy consumption of 13.9 kWh/100 km.2. The Hyundai IONIQ 6 will go on sale in select markets in Europe later this year and North America next year. Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) – Hyundai Motor Group’s dedicated architecture for EVs, provides excellent electrical performance and 800V ultra-fast charging from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes and additional components. Supports 400V charging without need. Adapter
Hyundai Motor maximized the IONIQ 6’s all-electric driving range through extensive aerodynamic design and engineering work, and it also has a coefficient of 0.21, the lowest in Hyundai’s entire lineup. An active air flap, wheel air curtains, integrated rear spoiler, and wheel gap reducers significantly enhance the aerodynamic performance of the IONIQ 6. Wheel gap reducers reduce the space between the front bumper and the tires to improve aerodynamic performance around the wheels. The IONIQ 6 will come in two variants, a long-range version that comes with a 77.4-kW battery pack and can cover a maximum range of 614 km, and a short-range version with a 53-kW battery and more. It can cover a distance of more than 429 km. The car will also come in an all-wheel drive variant with a 77.4-kW battery pack and a maximum range of 584 km per charge.
“Since the beginning of the development of the IONIQ 6, we have focused on making it the EV with the longest electric range,” said Jae Ho Huh, head of the Submid Project Management Center at Hyundai Motor Company. “To be the global leader in electric vehicles, we are committed to providing the best possible EV performance and ownership experience.” According to reports, the business is gearing up to introduce the facelifted Kona EV and locally assemble the IONIQ 5 EV upon its launch in India. There is no official announcement from Hyundai whether the IONIQ 6 will come to India.
