South Korean brand Hyundai opened its price books for its Ioniq 6 electric compact sedan on Thursday. Since nothing is free in this world, this new model will have an entry price slightly higher than the Ioniq 5 electric crossover, while respecting the limit eligible for federal and provincial subsidies.
Thus, in exchange for $54,999, which is the price ceiling eligible for the federal subsidy, you get a basic package equipped with a single 225 hp engine and a 77.4 kWh battery, the only one available in remaining for all declensions. Its range is 581 km, which is almost 100 km more than the rear-wheel drive version of the Ioniq 5 with the same battery. This is largely explained by the fact that its body literally pierces the air thanks to a drag coefficient of barely 0.22 cx.
The 320-hp twin-engine option that allows you to benefit from all-wheel drive brings the bill up to $57,999. Autonomy drops to 508 km in his case. The most expensive version—the $63,999 Ultimate package—gets the same powertrain, but sees its range shrink to 435 km due in part to its larger rims (20 inches).
Note that the Ioniq 6 receives the latest advances in electrification to reduce its charging times. Its 800 V electrical architecture provides a maximum charging power of 350 kW, theoretically reducing the time spent at a compatible terminal to 18 minutes to increase the charge by 10 to 80%.
