HYUNDAI’S IONIQ 6 STREAMLINES THE ELECTRIC EXPERIENCE

With an elongated, futuristic design, Hyundai’s latest electric vehicle, the Ioniq 6 Electrified
Streamliner cuts a dramatic profile. At an impressive 4.8 metres in length, Ioniq 6 is
available with a range of drive motors and battery packs to fit the needs of every customer.

It delivers an estimated driving range of 610km (WLTP) as well as ultra-fast, 400-V/800-V
multi-charging capability.

The long-range 77.4kWh battery is available with either rear- or all-wheel-drive.

The top-of-the-line dual motor all-wheel drive model produces a combined power output of
239kW and 605Nm of torque, with a 0-100km/h time of 5.1 seconds.

The single motor, rear-wheel drive motor version has a 53kWh battery uses 14kWh/100km
(WLTP), which Hyundai says makes it one of the most energy-efficient vehicles on the
market.

The electrified streamliner takes advantage of Hyundai’s dedicated battery-electric E-GMP
platform to provide a long, 2950mm wheelbase, supported by a choice of 20-inch or 18-
inch wheels.

Features include Dual Colour Ambient Lighting, Speed Sync Lighting, EV Performance
Tune-up and Electric Active Sound Design (e-ASD).

The latter enhances the drive experience by producing an artificial sound to replace the
noise normally generated by an internal combustion engine.

Speed Sync Lighting mode adds emotion to the driving experience by changing the
brightness of the interior lighting in the first row based on the vehicle’s speed.

Remote Smart Parking Assist 2 (RSPA 2) helps remotely park by Remote Parking or it
helps remotely exit a parking spot from outside the vehicle by Remote Operation. This
feature works for parallel, perpendicular, and even diagonal parking.

The E-GMP architecture can support both 400-V and 800-V charging infrastructures, with
800-V charging as standard. It can accommodate 400-V charging without the need for
additional components or adapters.

With a 350kW charger, Ioniq 6 can get from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes.

Hyundai Ioniq 6, like Ioniq 5 before it, provides vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality that
allows customers to charge any electric devices – ideal for powering necessities during a
power outage, camping or outdoor projects.

The 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.

It’s also the first vehicle within the Hyundai group to offer Over-the-Air (OTA) software
updates.

Production is set to start soon.
