Wide Range of Models and Prices
Hyundai recently revealed prices, packaging, and options for its new Ioniq 6 electric sedan. The highly-anticipated model, built on the same well-regarded component set as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 crossover, will have a starting MSRP of $41,600 for the least expensive model when it arrives in dealerships later this year. Multiple trim levels will be available, with the top model exceeding a starting MSRP of $56,000. EPA range estimates have also been announced, and they significantly exceed the Ioniq 5 thanks to the Ioniq 6’s sleeker silhouette.
New Small Battery Available
The Ioniq 6 lineup starts off with a 149-hp SE standard range model with 18-inch wheels. Packing a smaller 53-kWh battery, this entry model has an EPA-estimated range of 240 miles and a starting MSRP of $41,600 before incentives. The long-range version of the SE, which has a more powerful 225-hp rear motor, has an EPA-estimated range of 361 miles thanks to its 77.4-kWh battery; its starting MSRP is $45,500. Finally, a long range all-wheel drive version, with a starting MSRP of $49,000, ups power to 320 hp, while EPA-estimated range drops slightly to 316 miles.
One step up from the SE models are the SEL models. They add 20-inch alloy wheels to the comprehensive standard equipment. Two versions are available: a rear-wheel drive with 225 hp and an estimated range of 305 miles, and a 320-hp dual-motor version with all-wheel drive, with an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles. Starting MSRPs are $47,700 and $51,200, respectively.
The top trim level is the Limited, which adds a ton of high-end features and synthetic leather interior, as well as other trimmings. The 225-hp rear-wheel drive version with 20-inch wheels has an EPA-estimated range of 305 miles for a starting MSRP of $52,600, and the 320-hp dual-motor version with all-wheel drive has a starting MSRP of $56,100, with an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles.
All new Ioniq 6 owners will offer unlimited 30-minute charging sessions for two years from the date of purchase on Electrify America’s network of fast chargers. Electrify America has more than 800 DC fast stations and 3,500 individual chargers open with plans to expand to 1,800 charging stations comprised of 10,000 individual chargers in the United States by 2026.
In addition to its slick exterior styling, the thing we really love about the Ioniq 6 is its interior. A a comfortable hideaway and personal space, the Ioniq 6 is full of practical features and sustainable materials. There’s plenty of space front and rear, and the dedicated electric platform also allows for a completely flat floor, giving an expansive feeling. An ergonomically designed control unit is centrally located to reduce distraction. The dashboard integrates a two 12.3-inch screens under one piece of glass – one for the instruments and one touchscreen for infotainment. Drivers can also choose from a spectrum of 64 colors and six-dual color themes.
The Ioniq 6 interior is full of sustainable materials and colorful touches. Depending on the trim level, these include eco-process leather, recycled fabric, bio thermoplastic polyolefin for the dashboard, bio PET fabric for the headliner, paint derived from vegetable oils, and carpet made from recycled fishing nets. The exterior includes recycled paint from end-of-life tires on the side cladding.
The new Hyundai Ioniq 6 arrives in dealerships across the country this spring. We’re looking forward to our turn behind the wheel.
