Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV (Tesla Model 3 Rival) At Auto Expo 2023

At the 2023 Auto Expo, which opens on January 11, the Korean automaker Hyundai is getting ready to introduce a wide selection of new vehicles. The business will likely reveal the Ioniq 5 electric crossover’s costs at the yearly gathering. Additionally, at the 16th iteration of the Indian auto exhibition, the redesigned Creta and the new Verna sedan might make their Indian debut. According to a recent report, Hyundai will also display the recently revealed Ioniq 6 electric sedan at the auto show.

The brand’s third electric car, following the Kona EV and the Ioniq 5, had its debut in June 2022. The Hyundai Prophecy concept, also displayed at the 2023 Auto Show, served as its initial sneak peek. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is the second Hyundai product to use the E-GMP skateboard architecture. The same platform supports the Kia EV6 and the Hyundai Ioniq 5. This skateboard architecture works with scalable battery sizes, rear- or all-wheel drive configurations, a flat floor for optimal passenger space, and EV-specific proportions.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 is made with a drag coefficient of just 0.21 in mind. The electric vehicle has cameras in place of the typical outside rearview mirrors, and flush door handles. The EV’s rear has pixel-style LED taillights, a rear spoiler with a ducktail, and a curved shoulder line.

The sedan’s interior features a two-spoke steering wheel, dual 12-inch touchscreens for infotainment and driver display, and a flat center console. The Ioniq 6 has dimensions of 4855mm long, 1880mm wide, 1495mm tall, and a 2950mm wheelbase.

Two battery size options are available for the new Hyundai Ioniq 6: 53kWh and 77kWh. The lower-spec variant comes with a single-motor RWD setup as standard, while the higher-spec variant offers a dual-motor AWD option. While the RWD arrangement generates 228bhp and 350Nm, the Dual Motor develops 302bhp and 605Nm. The RWD variant with a 53kWh battery has a 429km range, while the RWD with a 77.4kWh battery has a 614km range. AWD models have a 583km WLTP-certified range.
