Hyundai says the RWD Ioniq 6 with long-range battery can cover 610 km
Last month, Hyundai unveiled the Ioniq 6 to the world. Serving as their latest electric vehicle (EV), this sleek and sexy four-door combines zero emissions, fastback styling, and a wide array of in-car amenities. However, Hyundai has yet to reveal its output figures, range, battery rating, as well as other technologies that allow the Ioniq 6 to move without producing any emissions.
Fast forward to July, and the automaker has revealed all of the technical specifications of the Ioniq 6's electric drivetrain. Starting with battery choices, the Ioniq 6 can be equipped with a standard 53-kWh battery or the long-range 77.4-kWh battery. The smaller battery is only available with a RWD electric motor although power output was not revealed.
Meanwhile, the bigger battery can come with an AWD setup which allows the Ioniq 6 to produce 325 PS and a whopping 605 Nm of torque. From a standstill, Hyundai claims the Ioniq 6 can go from 0 – 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds. No 0 – 100 km/h time was revealed for the RWD version, however.
When it comes to going the distance, the Ioniq 6 can cover 610 km before needing a full recharge. This can only be made possible should a customer configure their Ioniq 6 with the 77.4-kWh battery pack and single RWD electric motor. Speaking of charging, the EV's E-GMP architecture can support both 400V and 800V charging infrastructures. Moreover, when plugged with a 350 kW charging system, the Ioniq 6 can recharge from 10% to 80% in only 18 minutes.
Need to power your home or other electrical devices in a blackout? Just like the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 comes with the vehicle-to-load (V2L) system which will allow users to charge electrical devices, or even power up camping or outdoor events. V2L is enabled using an available accessory adaptor and goes into the outside charging port. In addition to the outside power outlet, there is a second outlet underneath the back row seat for charging laptops, phones, and other devices.
When it comes to amenities, users will be treated to not one, but two digital screens. Both the instrument cluster and the touchscreen infotainment are viewed via a 12-inch display. It has a unique navigation system that overlays a real-time range map based on various factors like traffic, state of charge, and terrain. It can even set a route where the car can hook up to public charging outlets to ensure the vehicle can be recharged.
Features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth with multi-connection support, as well as an 8-speaker Bose sound system will provide customers some rest & relaxation while on the road.
With the Ioniq 6 fully revealed, customers that want a high-tech EV from Hyundai but don't want a hatchback can now get a fully-electric sedan. Should the country continue to put up more charging infrastructures across the Philippines, perhaps we might see the Ioniq 6 (and the Ioniq 5) in the country in the not-so-distant future.
