2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Debuts For US With Estimated Range Of 340 Miles

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 made its North American debut at the LA Auto Show today. The automaker revealed the global model in July, highlighting its many features. The US launch provides specific details on the models we’ll be getting here.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 looks identical to the car the automaker introduced earlier this year, but the North American model has one slight difference. The drag coefficient of a car is 0.1 higher in the US because the car camera side mirrors, which are available in the Korean domestic market, do not comply with current NHTSA standards and are not available here. The Ioniq 6 US destination has a drag coefficient of 0.22.

The Ioniq 6 has two battery sizes available – 53.0- and 77.4-kilowatt hours. The standard range model gets one rear-mounted electric motor that produces 149 horsepower (111 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (350 Nm) of torque. Hyundai offers larger batteries in single-motor rear-wheel drive, or dual-motor all-wheel drive configurations. The RWD layout produces 225 hp (168 kW) and the same amount of torque as the standard model. The dual-motor EV produces 320 hp (239 kW) and 446 lb-ft (605 Nm) of torque.

Hyundai estimates that the single-motor model with the larger battery will achieve an all-electric range of 340 miles. The two-motor car should travel 310 miles, but this is not an official EPA number. A fast 350 kilowatt charger lets the Ioniq 6 recharge from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes, but if owners are in a hurry, the charger can add around 65 miles of range in five minutes. Recharging with a standard Level 2 charger takes just over seven hours.

Inside, Hyundai’s E-Global Modular Platform allowed designers to give the EV a completely flat floor, leading to a cabin that feels spacious. Automakers even removed the knobs from the doors, slimming them down for more passenger space. Two 12.3-inch digital displays sit on the dashboard under a piece of glass, serving as a gauge cluster and infotainment system.

The Ioniq 6 is simply the latest battery-electric vehicle from Hyundai. The automaker has plans to have 17 BEV models available worldwide by 2030. The Ioniq 6 will join Hyundai’s US lineup next spring. Buyers will receive two years of unlimited 30-minute charging sessions from Electrify America. We won’t have pricing information until nearer the car’s sale date.
