It looks like a futuristic Porsche Taycan and that is a very good thing. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – July 13, 2022 Hyundai has finally revealed its IONIQ 6 Electrified Sedan, the latest model in the brand’s IONIQ all-electric lineup. And damn is it running on all cylinders despite having no cylinders. The IONIQ 6 delivers an estimated range of at least 610 km on the WLTP which equates to ~ 340 miles of AER on our own EPA. And like the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 will arrive with the same 400V/800V high speed DCFC capability. The Ioniq 6 resides on the E-GMP platform providing an extremely long, 116” wheelbase. The body shell has the dimensions of a full-sized sedan including a length of 191”, just under 2” shorter than the current Sonata, width of 74”, up almost an inch from the current Sonata, and 59” height, 1.6” taller than the current Sonata. On the styling front, it looks like a bullet with attractive haunches and rear rake looking very similar to the Taycan, and dual rear spoilers with a throwback homage to the Merkur XR4Ti. Customers can choose either 18’s – highly recommended, or 20” alloys. 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 By comparison… 2022 Porsche Taycan Ioniq 6 Drivetrain from The Award Winning Ioniq 5 IONIQ 6 will arrive with the long-range 77.4-kWh battery that can be mated with a RWD or AWD.

Ioniq 6 Infotainment IONIQ 6’s modular touchscreen integrates a 12” display and user customizable 12-inch digital cluster. The embedded maps provide real-time travel radius mapping based on the current state of charge. The system’s connected car services also help search and plan the best route to include a charging station(s) along the way. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and multi-connect Bluetooth are standard. Will the higher end trims still require a wired connection for AA and ACP? Stay tuned. A premium 8-speaker Bose sound system including a subwoofer provides a high-end listening experience. Ioniq 6 Safety The IONIQ 6 is equipped with the next level of Hyundai SmartSense, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, ensuring safety and convenience on the road. Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2) helps to maintain a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway and helps to center the vehicle in the lane while driving, even through a curve. In case the vehicle on the side is driving very close, it assists to adjust the vehicle's path, not to be in danger. If driving above a certain speed, holding the steering wheel, and operating the turn signal switch automatically changes the lane in the indicated direction. Smart Cruise Control (SCC) helps to maintain distance from the vehicle ahead and drive at a speed set by the driver by reflecting the learned driving style of the driver. When SCC is inactive, the function learns the driver's driving style. When SCC is activated, the function stops learning and drives automatically by mimicking the learned driving style. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) helps to avoid collisions with objects in front of the vehicle while driving. If a preceding vehicle suddenly slows, or if a forward-collision risk is detected, such as a stopped vehicle or a pedestrian, it provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision remains, it can assist with emergency braking. While driving, if there is a risk of collision with a cyclist ahead, or with an oncoming vehicle while turning at an intersection, it can help assist with emergency braking. The SEL and Limited trims includes enhanced functions of Junction Crossing, Lane-Changing Oncoming and Lane-Changing Side along with Evasive Steering Assist. While driving through an intersection if there is a risk of collision with oncoming vehicles from the left or right, it automatically assists with emergency braking. When changing lanes while driving, if there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle in the next lane or a preceding vehicle in the next lane, it automatically assists with avoidance steering. And while driving, if there is a risk of collision with a pedestrian, partially in the vehicle's intended path, it automatically assists with avoidance steering. Other semi-autonomous driving features include Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), which adjusts vehicle speed to match the speed limit, and High Beam Assist (HBA), which can help switch high beam lights on and off at night for approaching vehicles in the opposite oncoming lane. IONIQ 6 has several driver attention-related functions. Driver Attention Warning (DAW) analyzes the driver's attention while driving and warns when necessary. It provides a warning when signs of driver inattentiveness are detected and recommends a rest if needed. During a stop, the driver is alerted if the leading vehicle departs. Several functions work in tandem to help avoid collisions in a variety of driving situations. Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) helps avoid collisions at the rear side of the vehicle when changing lanes. When operating the turn signal to change lanes, if there is a risk of collision detected with a rear-side vehicle, it can provide a warning. If exiting a parallel parking spot and there is a risk of collision detected with a rear-side vehicle, it can assist with emergency braking. Another function, Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), displays video of the blind-spot view for a safe lane change. When operating the turn signal switch, it displays video of the blind-spot view for the direction indicated. IONIQ 6 also assures the safety of backseat passengers with Safe Exit Warning (SEW), which provides a warning when a vehicle is approaching from the rear-side while getting out of the vehicle. When the occupant opens the door to exit the vehicle after a stop, if an approaching vehicle from the rear side is detected, it provides a warning. A variety of Parking Convenience features make parking in a variety of circumstances easier than before. Remote Smart Parking Assist 2 (RSPA 2) helps remotely park by Remote Parking or it helps remotely exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle by Remote Operation. This feature works for parallel, perpendicular, and even diagonal parking. Surround View Monitor (SVM) displays video of the situation around the vehicle for safe parking. Forward/Side/Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA) helps avoid collisions with pedestrians and objects around the vehicle while parking or exiting. If there is a risk of collision with pedestrians or objects while parking and exiting, it provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, it automatically assists with emergency braking. Similarly, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) helps avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles on the left or right side of the vehicle while reversing. If there is a risk of collision with an oncoming vehicle on the left or right side while reversing, it provides a warning. After the warning, if the risk of collision increases, it automatically assists with emergency braking. The Ioniq 6 is OTA Updateable IONIQ 6 is Hyundai brand’s first model to offer the Over-the-Air (OTA) Software Update feature for various controllers. This technology allows drivers to upgrade the vehicle’s controllers for electric devices, autonomous driving, battery, and more, to provide a safer and more convenient driving experience. Drivers can also update maps and media software with the OTA function. IONIQ 6 Colors IONIQ 6 is available in 12 exterior colors, including Gravity Gold Matte, Abyss Black Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Curated Silver Metallic, Nocturne Gray Metallic, Nocturne Gray Matte, Transmission Blue Pearl, Biophilic Blue Pearl, Ultimate Red Metallic, Digital Green Pearl, Digital Green Matte and Byte Blue. 2023 Hyundai Ioniq A great looking and standout all-electric sedan for the masses.
