Hyundai: Hyundai Ioniq 6: it’s electric and learns from the way you drive

Enot hyundai refer to the new Ionic 6 as streamline. And since this expression deserves an explanation, let’s say that we can understand the term as “aerodynamic”, which in an electric car which makes autonomy a “vital” issue is even more important. But they also call the new model a “giant cocoon that welcomes, envelops and protects its occupants”. Stick to the definition you want to call the second model of the new family of 100% electric cars from the Korean brand after the Ioniq 5.

‘Cause if there’s anything you can’t deny, it’s that the Ionic 6 is ‘brother’ of the Ioniq 5. Firstly because of what we cannot see, the E-GMP platform that Kia electric vehicles also carry, but also because of the shapes of the dashboardalmost the whole system propellin (motor and batteries) and by the helpers driving And this similarity is something you will first realize in South Korea, the first country where it will be marketed. To see it in Europe, as in the United States, we will have to wait action finals or early 2023.


lively against the wind

Even if he Ioniq6 completely shuns the SUV philosophy, it’s a car that extends to the 4.85 meters in lengthwhose 2.95 meters are between the two axes. This risks a huge space in the rear seats, to the detriment of knowing the volume of the trunk, whose grid is crowned by a alert which helps achieve a drag coefficient Cd of 0.21. That is to say bestiality (for good), the lowest ever achieved by a Hyundai and only a hundredth more than what the car looks like. mercedes eqe. A model, also electric, with which it bears a certain resemblance.

To also help this low air resistance includes hidden shooters for levers or cameras which replace the classic exterior mirrors, a formula already used by Audi and which has not finished convincing us. In this case, the screens that display the images are not placed in the doors (as in Audis), but in the seats. the dashboard endsin a more natural position.


Iluminacin to taste

As we mentioned, the dashboard is very similar to that of the Ioniq 5. It is composed of big screens of 12 inch each forming a single piece everywhere. The big difference is that in the Ioniq 6s there is a central console that can support a the computer in the style of American police cars. In fact, the designers have created a cabin that is comfortable and safe, but which can be used to the maximum with a minimum of stress. which serves as home, office or shelter.

This makes possible a small mood lighting customizable up to 64 colors and varies by speed. There’s also a Bose audio system, which amplifies the specific sound created to make driving more exciting; optional front seats that convert almost in a bed or the standards, which are 30% narrower to gain more space for the occupants of the rear seats, already well treated.


Digitization includes connectivity Apple Car Play and Android Auto with, for the first time in a Hyundai, over-the-air (OTA) updates that will allow the optimization of simple mapping to critical elements such as the battery or semi-autonomous driving systems.

610 km range

In terms of engines, it is very similar to the Ioniq 5, but with significant gains in autonomy thanks to improvements in electrical management and aerodynamics. Thus, the customer will be able to choose between two versions with the 77.4 kWh, rear or all-wheel drive and nearly 330 hp; and a smaller model with battery 53 kWh it’s just for propulsion. With 18 or 20 inch wheels, the average cost of electricity reaches a minimum of 14 kWh per 100 kilometers, a figure more typical of a small compact model. And this makes it possible to extend the autonomy to the 610 kilometers. This with 18-inch wheels, although there will also be 20-inch wheels.

The battery can be recharged at 800 volt. This assumes it supports speeds of up to 230 kWhwe therefore fill the battery of the 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes if we have a suitable pole. This also has V2L technology which allows the car to give electricity to different external sources, such as a television or a computer. To do this, in addition to a special socket, under the rear seats a socket for connecting small devices.


In the same way, each client will be able to fully personalize the user experience thanks to the electrical performance tuning act on the response steering, throttle, engine and transmission speed.

Take note of our conduct

The Hyundai Ioniq6 represents a step forward in everything related to adsthe safety and comfort assistants offered in the package SmartSense. More specifically, with the smart cruise control, that learns from our driving style when we turned it off and we ‘imitate’ when you activate it. Other devices monitor our attention behind the wheel, or free us from parking and leaving the car, since we can do it remotely from the outside.

Depending on the version chosen, it will be possible to reach a autonomy level 2. That is, the vehicle is able to keep inside the track, keeping the predetermined distance from the car in front and exceeding by itself as long as we keep our hands on the steering wheel and indicate it through the intermittent. It also highlights the set of systems that avoid collisions and accidents of all kinds: frontal collisions or in the said angle, with a vehicle coming from the front, at crossroads, when leaving the car park, when leaving the car when another is coming from behind, etc, etc.
