Photos of the not-yet presented Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric car have leaked to the Network. It is based on the Prophecy concept and will enter the market in 2023. The “Six” is partially unified with the Ioniq 5 model, although its design is completely original. According to preliminary information, the car will receive a 308-horsepower power plant with two electric motors and will be able to drive more than 500 kilometers without recharging. Also, the electric car will receive extendable handles and cameras instead of side mirrors.
The electric brand Ioniq was launched by Hyundai in 2020. By 2024, its line will be fully formed and will include three models: Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6, and Ioniq 7. All of them will be based on the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) “trolley” designed specifically for electric vehicles.
Introduced in February 2021, Ioniq 5 found 20 thousand buyers in Europe over the year. And now Ioniq 6 is rushing to his aid, the prototype of which is the streamlined Prophecy concept.
The photos posted online show that the commercial sedan will look noticeably simpler, although it will retain some resemblance to a show car. He was promised a battery with a capacity of 77.4 kilowatt-hours, a twin-engine power plant with a capacity of 308 horsepower, and a range of about 515 kilometers without recharging. Ioniq 6 will also be able to boast hidden door handles, “pixel” optics, and cameras instead of side mirrors.
The premiere of the electric car was supposed to take place in March — April, but the timing had to be moved due to minor improvements. In addition to installing a larger battery, the “six” revised the shape of the bumpers, which, in turn, improved aerodynamics.
It is expected that sales of the model in South Korea will launch in 2023, and at the same time, Hyundai will show the Ioniq 7. It will be a Palisade-sized electric crossover based on the Seven concepts.
