Hyundai Motor Company today presented a sketch of the design concept of its long-awaited Ioniq 6, the second model in the line of all-electric Hyundai Ioniq cars.
The concept sketch depicts the unique and streamlined silhouette of the Ioniq 6. Inspired by the company’s Prophecy EV concept, the Ioniq 6 will be presented as the brand’s electric flagship with clear, simple lines and a purely aerodynamic shape. The typology of streamlined design that we see in the sketch reflects the desire of Hyundai designers to meet both the aesthetic and functional needs of customers in the era of electric mobility.
When creating the Ioniq 6, the Hyundai Motor Group Electric (GMP) global modular platform is used, providing an elongated wheelbase and optimized interior design.
In the near future, the company from South Korea will publish several more design sketches and teasers, in which it will fully present the exterior and interior design of its new electrified flagship.
Earlier it was written that initially the Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan was supposed to be shown in March of this year, however, due to the fact that the chairman of the board of the company did not like some of the decisions taken during the development of the model, it was decided to postpone its release for three months.
It is reported that the list of changes is very impressive — for example, engineers and designers had to redo the front and rear bumpers, which made the sedan 20 mm longer. Also, according to preliminary data, the novelty will receive the world’s first intelligent radiator grille and a 77.4 kW / h battery, which should provide the car with an additional power reserve.
