Hyundai Ioniq 6 readies for launch

This it - the debut ‘First Edition’ model of the much-anticipated new all-electric Hyundai Ioniq 6.

The Ioniq 6 first started making waves earlier this year, largely thanks to its highly-distinctive design that’s inspired by the aerodynamic ‘streamliner’ planes and trains of the 1930s.

And now the South Korean firm has revealed the spec of the first Ioniq 6s that will be up for grabs, beginning next month.

This initial run of cars will be called ‘First Edition’, and they’re priced from £54,995 to buy outright, which is a fair bit more than the Ioniq 5 SUV, which begins at £41,650.

The Ioniq 6 will also rival all-electric saloons like the Tesla Model 3 and the Mercedes-Benz EQE.

You can expect an all-wheel drive, dual motor drivetrain, power of 325 PS and 605 Nm of torque. You’ll also be able to travel up to 320 miles between charges.

The large 77.4 kWh battery boasts 350kW ultra-fast charger compatibility and a battery heating system, which assures ‘optimised charge times in all conditions’, according to Hyundai .

Away from the First Edition models, Hyundai has also promised a more affordable Ioniq 6 with a smaller 53 kWh battery in due course. There will also be a variant with a greater range, up to 379 miles, when the full Ioniq 6 line-up is revealed next year.

For now, at least, First Edition models will feature 20 inch matt black alloy wheels, a black interior and a black headliner, and Tartan flourishes on the leather seats and floor mats.

There are four exterior body colours to choose from - Biophilic Blue Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Nocturne Grey Metallic and Gravity Gold Matte.

You’ll also enjoy a sunroof, head-up display, heated seats in the front and rear, a premium Bose sound system, and Hyundai’s clever Remote Smart Parking Assist, which allows you to park the car at the touch of a button on your key fob.

The Ioniq 6 First Edition is equipped with ‘Highway Driving Assist 2’, an autonomous driving system that keeps you centred in your lane and which maintains a set distance to the car in front.

And you also get the Hyundai ‘vehicle-to-load’ wizardry, which lets you use the car’s battery to charge other electric items - like camping gear or your laptop.

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director at Hyundai Motor UK, said:

“Ioniq 6 has already received an overwhelmingly positive response from customers and media alike with its combination of streamliner styling and long-distance EV performance.”
