Following the Ioniq 5’s launch, Hyundai is turning it’s attention to their next EV model, the Ioniq 6.
The upcoming Ioniq 6 is based on Hyundai’s Prophecy EV concept that brings “clean, simple lines and a pure aerodynamic form.”
“IONIQ 6 connects an emotional convergence of functionality with aesthetics,” said SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai Design Center. “The distinctive streamlined design is the result of close cooperation between engineers and designers, with obsessive attention to detail and customer-centric values at the core. We have created the IONIQ 6 as a mindful cocoon that offers personalized place for all.”
For the design of the Ioniq 6, Hyundai says their design strategy involves giving each model a unique appearance, like chess pieces.
Like Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 uses more than 700 Parametric Pixels including a Parametric Pixel High-Mounted Stop Lamp (HMSL) on the back of the vehicle.
The interior of the vehicle will use sustainable materials such as eco-process leather (seats), recycled PET fabric (seats), bio TPO skin (dashboard), bio PET fabric (headliner), bio paint derived from vegetable oils (doors), and recycled fishing net carpet, depending other trim line.
Powering the Ioniq 6 is the company’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that allows flexibility by offering more interior space for better overall comfort.
Infotainment wise, the Ioniq 6 has a 12-inch full-touch infotainment display and 12-inch digital cluster.
Hyundai hasn’t unveiled full specs for the Ioniq 6 but it’ll likely have up to a 77.4 kWh battery like it’s EV siblings, the Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.
The world premiere of the Ioniq 6 is set to happen in July.
Hyundai Canada has confirmed that the Ioniq 6 will be available in Canada but no release date or window has been announced.
