2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 First Drive: A Slippery, Seductive EV Sedan

“I always see a Streamliner badge,” smiles SangYup Lee when describing Hyundai’s swoopy new EV sedan, the Ioniq 6. But when the Hyundai design chief shows pictures of classic streamlined vehicles he says inspired the Ioniq 6’s design, he isn’t playing visual games. The Ioniq 6 doesn’t just look aero-efficient; it’s one of the most aerodynamic production sedans ever built.

Hi friends don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and like your video thank you all i always see a streamliner badge smile saying yupply when describing hyundai swoopy new amsterdam the ionic six but when the hyundai design chief shows pictures of classic streamlined vehicles he says inspired the ionic six’s design he isn’t playing visual games the ionic 6

Doesn’t just look arrow efficient it’s one of the most aerodynamic production sedans ever built why should you care well good era doesn’t just mean less wind noise good error means it takes less energy to push your car through the atmosphere and if your car has an electric motor and a battery that can mean a big boost in range the ionic 6 proves the point the newest

Addition to hyundai’s electric car lineup shares its g emp platform and powertrain technology with the highly regarded ionic 5. however hyundai claims a single motor rear drive ionic 6 rwd long range with a 77.4 kilowatt hour battery pack has a wltp certified range of 382 miles compared with 315 miles for an ionic 5 with the same powertrain and battery pack given

The wltp’s pension for optimistic range estimates relative to the epa the same ionic 5 here delivers 303 miles expect that 382 mile figure to drop slightly in america to perhaps 350 to 360 miles and of course just as in an internal combustion engine vehicle your mileage will vary depending on how you drive in the ambient conditions yet the laws of physics are

Mutable here the windshielding ionic 6 sedan will better the 5’s range by 15 to 20 largely thanks to its arrow yes the ionic6 rwd long range is fitted with 18-inch wheels as standard compared with a 19-incher standard on the ionic 5 and it has slightly better e-motor efficiency in powertrain management however hyundai aero engineer song hyun park confirms most

Of the range improvement comes from the fact the soap bar smooth 6 has a drag coefficient cd of 0.21 compared with a brick-like ionic 5 cd is 0.29 in the ev era aerodynamic performance is most important he says the ion x6’s low drag shape is aided by active air flaps in the front bumper which open only when the battery requires additional cooling just like in the

Five while vents to either side of them direct fast-moving air to form a curtain over the exterior of the front wheels a short front overhang like the ionic sixes is an ideal for optimal arrow so dark colored inch wide plastic strips that extend from the lower corner of the front bumper almost one-third the way around the front will openings help keep the airflow

Attached to the car’s body sides the wing at the base of the rear window manages airflow at the rear of the car and the rear diffuser has been designed to cope with a faster and stronger airflow generated by the ionic 6’s flat underside the ionic6 looks even more dramatic in traffic than it does in the design studio that drooping tail takes a little getting used

Too especially from the three-quarter front view though from the rear it throws off whale tail porsche 911 vibes hyundai sedan is arguably a better resolved modern streamliner than mercedes-benz’s eqs which boasts a world-leading cd of 0.20 and the smaller ek which has a cd of 0.22 it has a better dash to axle ratio and a lower cowl height than either of the big

Electric benzes you notice at the moment you slide behind the wheel you sit closer to the base of the windshield in the ionic 6 and forward visibility is noticeably better making the car easier to place on the road and maneuver in parking structures at 191.1 inches the ionic 6 is 3.6 inches shorter overall than the mercedes-benz ek with a 6.7 inch shorter wheelbase

Yet it manages to feel less claustrophobic in the rear seat than the bigger car accommodating six foot tall adults with ease and offering better entry in egress that dramatically falling belt line also means the rear side windows are bigger for our first drive of the ionic 6 on roads in and around seoul hyundai put us in a fully loaded ion x6 awd long-range model

With a 320 horsepower 446 pound-of-foot dual motor powertrain 77.4 kilowatt hour battery an optional 20-inch wheels hyundai says the dual motor ionic 6 is extra power and torque along with the bigger wheels drops the wltp certified range about 16 compared with a single motor model that suggests the ionic 6 awd long range will have an epa range of just over 300

Miles for reference the epa rated range of an ionic 5 with an identical powertrain is 256 miles the earlier eqs and ek comparisons are apt because on the road the ionic6 feels very much like a mini mercedes it’s smooth and quiet as you’d expect of an electric vehicle but more impressively it has that hume from billet steel feel that’s a hallmark of the best cars

From stuttgart the excellent body rigidity combined with new hydro suspension bushings new frequency sensitive variable shocks and increased axle stiffness means impact harshness is very well controlled even on 20-inch rims and low profile 245 40 per lep zero tires pleasantly the suspension tune is taut much more so than the ionic 5 soft setup that in the lower

Center of gravity means the ionic 6 hides its mass while when changing direction with little body roll or corner entry under steer the steering could do with a touch more feel not weight there is a difference especially because in terms of its overall alertness and agility the ionic 6’s chassis has a touch of old-school bmw 3 series in the way it handles a winding

Road as with the steering the brakes also feel slightly remote though the handoff between regenerative and mechanical braking is seamless the five different levels of liftoff braking reagan controlled via the paddles on the steering wheel allow you to manually adjust the car to your road conditions and driving style level 1 reagan basically mimics the coast down of

An internal combustion engine car with an automatic transmission and is the best for all-round driving level 4 label that pedal gives full one pedal driving that’s ideal for heavy stop and go traffic bringing the six to a complete stop without needing to use the brake pedal and level zero which eliminates all liftoff regan allowing the ion x6 to coast is perfect

For easy and efficient freeway cruising like in the ionic 5 the ion x6 awds 2e motors are not identical the motor at the rear axle develops 221 horsepower and 258 pounds to foot of torque while the front motor produces 99 horsepower and 188 pounds to foot moreover the front motor will automatically disengage from the front axles at light loads to improve efficiency

The output differences between the two motors means the ionic 6 awd retains a rear bias in terms of driving dynamics even when you’re booting the accelerator the sixes trio of drive modes eco normal and sport also carryover from the five and each offers a different level of acceleration response that places differing demands on the battery normal is ideal for most

Driving around town and on the freeway way eco makes the ionic 6 feel lethargic and is obviously designed to eke out maximum range when needed sport adds noticeable sparkle to the ionic 6’s response helping it whoosh from 0 to 60 miles per hour in fewer than 5.0 seconds and is great for fun to drive winding two lanes where the rear biased instant on torque punches

The hyundai out of corners our drive route comprised of 132 mile loop out of seoul and back that included quick bursts on winding roads through the mountains near the border with north korea bookended by 60 to 70 mile per hour cruising on freeways and stop and go driving on crowded soul streets we started with the crisply rendered graphics on the 12.0 inch digital

Instrument panel showing the battery at 96 charge and a predicted range of 258 miles based on the nav data from the programmed route the prediction was pretty accurate we finished with 50 charge in the battery and a predicted range of 130 miles according to the trip computer consumption on the hard driving mountain section averaged 27.3 kilowatt hour 100 miles while

The high way cruising and city traffic netted 24.7 kilowatt hour 100 miles on those numbers given the battery’s usable capacity of 72.5 kilowatt hours the ionic 6 awd long range should be capable of delivering a real-world range of close to 300 miles in normal driving the 800 volt electrical architecture of hyundai’s impressive egmp electric vehicle platform means

Fast recharging a fast charger capable of delivering 250 kilowatts or better will take the ionic 6’s battery from a 10 charge to 80 charge in as little as 18 minutes a 150 kilowatt charger will need 25 minutes and a 50 kilowatt charger an hour to deliver a similar top-up both at solid real world range and fast recharging capability make the ion x6 a very usable f

The 12.0 inch touch sensitive screen adjacent to the instrument panel controls the ionic 6’s array of communications entertainment and vehicle management systems the ionic 6 is the first hyundai to offer over the air software updates that can upgrade e-motor and battery controllers plus autonomous driving capabilities nav system mapping and media software to help

Drivers plan their longer trips the nav system will automatically plot the optimal route based on the state of battery charge and will search for charging stations along the way apple carplay and android auto are both accommodate dated and a bluetooth multi-connection facility means two devices can be paired at the same time one for phone calls and one for music

Streaming the premium audio system is by bose with eight speakers including a subwoofer other tech onboard includes the latest iteration of hyundai’s smart sense advanced driver assistance systems highway driving assist 2 not only combines active cruise control and lane keep assist functions but will automatically move the car away from traffic that’s closing in

Alongside and subject to operational parameters being met will facilitate automatic lane changes when the turn signal control is activated the smart cruise control system also can learn your driving style when inactive and will mimic it when activated passengers are assisted two a warning system will alert rear seat passengers preparing to exit the stopped ionic

6 of vehicles approaching from behind production of ionic 6s for the us market is scheduled to begin in january 2023 with the first car set to arrive in your friendly local hyundai dealers before mid-year the entry-level ionic 6 rwd standard range will be powered by a 149 horsepower and 258 pound-of-foot e-motor and fed by a 53 kilowatt hour battery giving it a

Slower zero to 60 mile per hour time of just under 9.0 seconds and a range of about 260 miles next up will be the rwd long range with 225 horsepower and 258 pounds to foot front enough to get it to 60 miles per hour and about 7.0 seconds and the 77.4 kilowatt hour battery to deliver that headline grabbing 350 360 mile range the awd long range will be top of the

Lineup no official word on pricing yet but hyundai north america sources hint the ionic 6 of may retail for slightly less than comparably equipped ionic 5 models from the way it looks to the way it drives to the advanced technologies it can put at the disposal of its drivers and passengers the hyundai ioniq 6 is a sophisticated and intelligent electric vehicle

Easily outclassing mass-market evs from the likes of volkswagen and toyota and ford its pricing and quality will give tesla model 3 buyers second thoughts its room and refinement will raise the eyebrows of mercedes-benz ek buyers this is not just a benchmark of hyundai it’s a benchmark compact sedan
