With the same electric motor and battery pack configurations as the ionic 5. that means the rear drive model with a 225 horsepower 258 pound feet motor powered by a choice of 58 kilowatt hour or 77.4 kilowatt hour battery packs plus an odd model with the bigger battery pack and a 99 horsepower 188 pound feet motor at the front axle to bring the total output to 320

Horsepower and 446 pound-feet the inx-6 measures 116.1 inches between the axles neatly splitting the difference between the ionic 5 which has a 118.1 inches wheelbase and the ev6 which rolls on a 114.1 inches wheelbase the original plan had been for the inx6 to share the ev6’s wheelbase hyundai styling group head simon lowspee says but the designers fought hard

The streamliner ethic has resulted in a couple of awkward design details like the cut line in the c-pillar an inevitable by-product of the need to have a trunk lid that extends to the top of the rear fenders then there’s the way the rear door cut line extends into roof side rails to allow for the frame door uppers done to improve rear entry and egress they’re
