Like the IONIQ 5 was inspired by the 45 Concept, the IONIQ 6’s styling draws inspiration from the Prophecy Concept. The streamlined styling made the IONIQ 6 one of the most aerodynamic electric cars ever made. Like the IONIQ 5, the IONIQ 6’s interior materials have been derived from renewable materials such as the Eco Process Genuine Leather made from vegetable oil extracted from flax seeds, BIO Paint Door Trim from flowers and corn, BIO TPO crashpad and PET yarn headlining made from yarns extracted sugar cane, and carpets made out of old fishing nets.
Running on the same E-GMP platform as the IONIQ 5, the IONIQ 6 is packed with a 77.4kWh battery capacity. In Long Range variants, it produces a high-performance class 228PS of power, or with 4WD variants, a sports car-like 325PS of power. Questioning about the range, the rear-wheel-drive Long Range variant is good for a combined 524km, which beats the old lean-burn engine-powered Hyundais of the late 90s by a long shot. 4WD Long Range variants are good for a combined 484km of driving range, which is still better than lean-burn engine-powered Hyundais that can get you from Seoul to Busan. While charging at a public charging station, it will take about 18 minutes to charge the batteries from 10% to 80%.
