Powertrain, Efficiency, and Related Specs

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 sedan has joined the Ioniq 5 crossover as the first two in a planned series of models bearing this attention-getting nameplate. They’re built on the automaker’s Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), with two different powertrains on offer. The base trim, the SE Standard Range, uses a single rear-axle electric motor (225 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque). The higher trims – SE, SEL, and Limited – move up to a 168-kW motor that makes 225 hp, but there’s a further upgrade for those three trims that adds a 74-kW front-axle motor. That combination puts out 320 hp and 446 lb.-ft. of torque and enables the available AWD.

The Ioniq 6 SE Standard Range has been rated by the EPA to provide a total driving range of 240 miles, with an MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) of 135. The SE trim with RWD provides the longest potential range: 361 miles with RWD (270 with AWD) and has an MPGe of 140, which dips to 121 with AWD. RWD versions of the SEL and Limited provide 305 miles of range, while their AWD range is rated at 270 miles.
These two trims also have the same MPGe ratings: 117 with RWD and 103 with AWD.

An Ioniq 6 plugged in to an 800V DC fast charger will jump to 80 percent charge in just 18 minutes, while a standard 240V home charging system will need a tad less than 7 hours. As mentioned, buyers and lessees receive two years of complimentary charging through Electrify America.


The base version of the Ioniq 6 is packed with sought-after amenities. The highlights are proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic LED headlights, heated side mirrors with built in turn indicators, hands-free trunk access, rear privacy glass, push-button start, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. The occupants will also appreciate the heated front seats, power-adjustable driver’s seat, stain-resistant cloth upholstery, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback.

The SE’s infotainment system, contained within a 12.3-inch touchscreen, is packed with the necessary components to keep everyone connected and entertained: Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Access to Hyundai’s Bluelink connected car services is also included.

As part of Hyundai’s commitment to safety, the SmartSense driver-assist technology package comes standard, reinforcing the SE with forward collision-avoidance assist (with pedestrian and cyclist detection), automatic high beams, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, blind-spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, adaptive cruise control, highway driving assist, front and rear parking sensors, driver-attention warning, safe exit warning, speed limit assist, and rear occupant alert.


Hyundai amps up the SEL with Digital Key Touch 2 (which lets you access and start the vehicle via your smartphone), H-Tex-upholstered seats, 64-color ambient interior lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, and a wireless phone charge pad. What’s more, it’s furnished with a few extra driving aids for additional peace of mind (blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, junction turning collision-avoidance assist, enhanced highway driving assist, and an improved adaptive cruise control system).


The Limited gets a bevy of upgrades, including a sunroof, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding side mirrors, position memory for the driver’s seat, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, gloss-black exterior accents, and a top-quality Bose audio system. A vehicle-to-load system is supplied as well, allowing you to power and operate all kinds of external electrical devices (lamps, tools, TVs, etc.).
To top it off, the Limited’s stable of safety aids is boosted by a surround-view camera, a blind-spot view monitor, Remote Smart Parking Assist 2 (which enables semi-automatic parking support), and parking collision-avoidance assist.
