LOS ANGELES– We have actually currently driven the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 (in Korea), yet today at the 2022 Los Angeles Automobile Program, Hyundai is disclosing the united state specification variation of its electrical car and also all the last specifications to opt for it.
Comparable to the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 will certainly be readily available in 3 drive/range arrangements. The entry-level RWD Requirement Variety version obtains the low-power single-motor arrangement with 149 horse power and also 258 pound-feet of torque. It has a 53.0 kWh battery pack, and also in spite of array numbers being readily available for various other designs, Hyundai hasn’t stated what this variation will certainly do. Tip up to the RWD version with the huge 77.4 kWh battery pack, and also outcome is improved to 225 horse power and also 258 pound-feet of torque. Hyundai asserts this variation will certainly deal with 340 miles on a complete fee, smoothly besting the Ioniq 5– this increase is mainly as a result of the rules of aerodynamics, as the Ioniq 6 messages an unsafe 0.22 coefficient of drag. The top-line double electric motor AWD variation provides it with an integrated 320 horse power and also 446 pound-feet of torque if you’re after power and also efficiency. Hyundai asserts a 0-60 miles per hour time of “much less than 5 secs” with this version. The exact same 77.4 kWh battery pack is utilized, and also array dips to 310 miles.
The billing tale is primarily the like the Ioniq 5, considering that it utilizes the exact same battery pack and also electric design. Link into a 350 kW quick battery charger, and also Hyundai claims you can go from a 10% battery to 80% in simply 18 mins– we have actually seen this take place a lot of times in our lasting Kia EV6. Keep in mind that height billing rate is not 350 kW, and also though Hyundai is not specifying that today, it’s most likely that it shares a 235 kW height billing rate with the Ioniq 5. If you’re intending on billing while when driving, you would certainly take advantage of going into the billing terminal right into the in-car nav, as this instantly pre-heats the battery pack to the ideal billing temperature level to guarantee you obtain the fastest-possible charging.
On the subject of navigating, Hyundai additionally introduced that the Ioniq 6 will certainly be presenting a brand-new navigating system that consists of a billing terminal course organizer for trip. It will instantly produce billing terminal quits along the means when you get in a location out of the auto’s array. Hyundai asserts the auto will certainly recognize what billing terminals remain in usage or damaged, and also instantly miss those– we’ll absolutely be examining that feature to see it at work. In addition, we have actually asked Hyundai if its various other EVs can be upgraded to capitalize on this brand-new navigating system.
Hyundai claims the Ioniq 6 is additionally the very first Hyundai to include over-the-air firmware upgrade capacity. This is much much deeper than your regular over-the-air software application upgrade, as it enables Hyundai to affect significant facets of exactly how the auto drives without also touching it. Hyundai claims it might transform velocity attributes by submitting a brand-new accelerator pedal map. It might additionally change guiding level of sensitivity and even fix a recall to these systems.
One more very first for Hyundai in the Ioniq 6 is something it calls electric-Active Audio Layout. Hyundai claims it “utilizes an acoustic style cpu to give special driving audios inside the capability and also the cabin to establish the quantity.” The precise audios we must anticipate to listen to aren’t specified yet, yet anticipate even more sounds in the Ioniq 6 than various other electrical Hyundai lorries.
Last But Not Least, the Ioniq 6’s shade combination is out. You’ll have the ability to pick in between 7 various tones, consisting of Gravity Gold Matte, Onyx Black Pearl, Peacefulness White Pearl, Curated Silver Metallic, Transmission Blue Pearl, Ultimate Red Metallic and also Digital Eco-friendly Pearl.
