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.

Standard Amenities

Both the SE Standard Range and the SE have a beautiful cabin and an array of modern conveniences. Among these are proximity keyless entry, heated seats, and hands-free trunk access. They also have dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, automatic LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a power driver’s seat, stain-resistant upholstery, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback. Buyers of the SEL will enjoy upgrades to wireless phone charging, H-Tex upholstery, Digital Key Touch 2 (lets you access and start the vehicle via your smartphone), 64-color ambient interior lighting, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.

The lush Limited trim ramps up the ride with ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, gloss-black exterior accents, a sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding exterior mirrors, driver’s seat position memory, and a power front passenger’s seat. Thanks to a vehicle-to-load system with a standard 120V plug, external devices like laptops and televisions can be powered from the car’s battery.

Driver-Assist Technology

Hyundai SmartSense is installed on every Ioniq 6, with every trim getting driver-attention warning, automatic high beams, forward collision-avoidance assist (with pedestrian and cyclist detection), 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, safe exit warning, speed limit assist, and rear occupant alert. The additions to the SEL and Limited are enhanced highway driving assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, junction turning collision-avoidance assist, and an upgraded adaptive cruise control system. All trims have a rearview monitor, but only the Limited has a surround-view monitor, as well as a blind-spot view monitor, Remote Smart Parking Assist 2, and parking collision-avoidance assist.

Staying Informed and Connected

The 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen in every Ioniq 6 controls these essential features: Bluetooth, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), and SiriusXM satellite radio. All trims get a sound system with an ample number of speakers, but the Limited stands out with its high-end Bose system. All trims have access to Bluelink, Hyundai’s comprehensive suite of connected car services.
