Finally, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 has been fully unveiled and we now have all the juicy deets. Based on the same E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 6 promises over 610 km or 379 miles of range per charge on the WLTP cycle. Like other E-GMP-based vehicles, this swoopy sedan features an 800-volt charging architecture allowing it to DC charge from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes via a 350-kW DC charger. In terms of size, the Ioniq 6’s footprint puts it at the heart of the midsize segment.
Comfort and Technology
Thanks to its 116.1-inch wheelbase, the Ioniq 6 features a spacious interior. It also gets cool front seats with built-in ottomans and 64-color interior ambient lighting. On the tech front, the Ioniq 6 gets dual 12.0-inch displays, Bluetooth connectivity for two devices at a time, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system. The Ioniq 6 is Hyundai’s first vehicle that’s capable of accepting over-the-air (OTA) updates to improve its powertrain components and driver assistance features. That’s on top of OTA updates for maps and infotainment functions.
Like the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 sports bi-directional charging. This allows the car to serve as a backup power source during outages or camping. Using the available adapter or power outlet in the rear seats, you can power appliances via the vehicle.
The car also gets Hyundai’s latest SmartSense driver assistance suite. It includes Highway Driving Assist 2 and a full range of collision prevention technologies. This includes forward collision warning, front and rear automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian and cyclist detection. On the SEL and Limited grades, these functions also work at intersections and junctions and include evasive steering assistance. The car can also adjust its speed to the posted limits found on road signs.
2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6: Familiar Powertrain
As expected, the Ioniq 6 uses a familiar powertrain. Long-range models use a 77.4-kWh battery along with either one or two electric motors. If you’re looking for the most power, get the latter, which makes 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque. As a result, this version sprints to 100 km/h or 62 mph in 5.1 seconds. Single-motor long-range models should travel the farthest with the smaller 18-inch wheels. However, the tradeoff is less power. While Hyundai didn’t disclose any figures, it’s safe to assume that the single-motor model makes 225 hp and 258 lb-ft just like the Ioniq 5. A smaller 53-kWh battery option will also be available but the automaker didn’t say if that’s headed to North America.
On Sale Next Year
Production of the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 starts in the third quarter of 2022. Korea will likely be the first market to get the car followed by Europe and North America next year. A total of twelve exterior colors will be offered including three matte options: Gravity Gold, Nocturnal Gray, and Digital Green. You’ll get to pair them with four interior colors, three of which are two-tone. The Ioniq 6 marks the second vehicle in
