After releasing concept sketches of the Ioniq 6 last week, Hyundai today released the first real photos of the Ioniq 6 electric sedan. There isn’t much to see before Hyundai actually releases it this weekend.
However, the teaser photos that have just been published show a lot of hope. The teaser photo shows a clean and flowing surface with a sporty-looking bumper. The wheels come with an attractive design, a pixelated LED light unit, and a slim side camera.
The Ioniq 6 electric sedan adopts Parametric Pixel design features such as the Ioniq 5 crossover, featuring pixel LEDs on the third brake light and vertical reflectors at the rear.
Unlike the Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 seems to have more curves in its design like the Prophecy Concept. The Ioniq 6 electric sedan has a sloping roofline to improve aerodynamics. From the teaser image shared, we also get a glimpse of the retractable door handle.
Hyundai promises the Ioniq 6 makes driving more agile and sustainable by making the airflow around the vehicle smoother. The automaker also mentions “the transparent, glass-like texture that reflects light beautifully.”
The Ioniq 6 will use Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP EV platform along with the Ioniq 5, KIA EV6 and Genesis GV60. This second electric vehicle from Hyundai is expected to offer single and dual motor configurations with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, respectively.
Rumor has it that the Ioniq 6 will come with a 77.4-kWh battery and a 300-horsepower powertrain when it launches. There will also be a more powerful Ioniq 6 N as Hyundai is working on the Ioniq 5 N performance model.
The final design of the Ioniq 6 will be revealed this weekend, while its first public appearance is scheduled for mid-July at the Busan auto show in Korea.
