Hyundai Motor has released its all-electric Ioniq 6 Extended Range. But how far can the new car go before it needs to be charged again? The company says that the 350 kW charger that comes with the car can charge it from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes. It can be used with both 400-V and 800-V charging systems.
The company said that the car can go 610 km on a fully charged battery, which is farther than the Long-Range Tesla Model 3, which can only go 602 km.
The “Electrified Streamliner” version of the Ioniq 6 promises to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
The EV will go on sale in the US at the beginning of next year, but the company hasn’t said how much it will cost yet.
The company said that the car has the most aerodynamic design to date. It also has a number of features that give the driver more control, such as dual-color ambient lighting, speed-sync lighting, an EV performance tune-up, and electric active sound design (e-ASD), which improves the experience of electric mobility.
Jaehoon Chang, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor, said that Ioniq 6 is the next ambitious step in the company’s plan to speed up its transition to electric vehicles. He also said that the company will soon be able to become a global leader in EVs.
The car has an impressive overall length of 4,855 mm, and its width and height of 1,880 mm and 1,495 mm make it look sleek and stylish in a sea of EVs that look the same.
Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Head of the Customer Experience Division, said, “The roomy interior, which puts sustainability and usability front and center, is another step forward for electric vehicles and is in line with what our customers value.”
The car will be made in the third quarter of this year and will come in 12 different colors.
The dual-color ambient lighting lets the driver choose from a range of 64 colors and six pre-selected themes to change the look and feel of the interior cabin.
The speed sync lighting mode makes driving more exciting by changing the brightness of the lights in the first row based on how fast the car is going.
The optional relaxation comfort seats in the first row make it easy to relax by letting you change the angle of the seat.
The company also said that all of its seats are made especially for all-electric models and are about 30% thinner than seats in regular models, giving passengers more space.
There are four type-C USB ports and one type-A USB port for customers to use.
The EV performance tune-up system lets the driver change the steering effort, motor power, sensitivity of the accelerator pedal, and driveline mode in any way they want.
The best, spaceship-like sound is added to the cabin, and the texture of the sound changes depending on how the car is being driven, the company said.
