The Hyundai Ioniq 5 was one of the most iconic EVs to this day. However, the more successful a vehicle is, the more difficult it becomes for the company to match its success in the future.
Though it seems that Hyundai has the recipe for hitting jackpots one after another. This is why the Ioniq 6 seems to look equally, or even more, promising, depending upon how you look at it.
It is worth noting that the concept of the vehicle was launched a couple of years earlier and was dubbed Prophecy.
Sketches Hinting What To Expect
Hyundai has taken an unconventional approach this time by not showing teaser images but rather displaying sketches that give us a hint of what to expect from the so-called electrified streamliner.
We must say that the design seems too good to be true for a four-door vehicle. Fans of the company are waiting eagerly for more images of the vehicle to be provided by the end of the next month.
However, it is being anticipated that information about the technical specifications of the car will not be made available before the end of July.
Design Has Been Redone
According to reports, Hyundai has undergone major changes in the design of the vehicle which has been increased by around 2 cm from the actual plan.
The elongated bumpers of the car will aid in improving the aerodynamics of the car. This will improve the electric range which is a much-discussed topic in the EV segment.
How Far Will It Take You On A Single Charge?
The vehicle will have a battery pack of 77.4 kWh which is relatively larger than that of the Ioniq 5.
This means that the range might be better than that of the former vehicle however nothing can be said with certainty for now.
Thanks to the unique shape of the vehicle, it may be able to cover a distance of around 480 km on a single charge.
How Powerful Will It Be?
The vehicle is likely to feature dual motors with an all-wheel-drive configuration. This will provide it with a power of around 224 kW. However, we have reasons to believe that a higher performance model will also follow this variant.
That’s because the E-GMP platform has already shown its capabilities with the Kia EV6 GT with 430 kW.
It is also expected that the base variant of the vehicle will have under 150 kW of power.
Improved Infotainment System
Another department in which Ioniq 6 will take the lead from the Ioniq 5 is the infotainment system. The newer system has thinner bezels which means that it looks sleek and modern as compared to that on the Ioniq 5.
What Will Be The Starting Price Of The Ioniq 6?
While Hyundai is completely silent for now about the price of the Ioniq 6, we believe that it will start at around €38,000 (£32,700).
From the sketches, it looks that Hyundai has got a big surprise ready for us. However, we are anxious to see the full images to be released by the company in the near future.
If the vehicle performs even anywhere close to what the Ioniq 5 is doing, it will help the Korean automaker further establish itself as a well-reputed brand in the EV segment.
