Hyundai has announced pricing for its upcoming Ioniq 6 all-electric sedan, and all three trim levels will be eligible for Federal EV rebates in Canada. And all of them will sport very impressive range and charging numbers when they hit dealerships in the spring.
The base Preferred RWD Long Range with 18-inch wheels starts at $54,999, and gets 581 km of range. The Preferred AWD Long Range with 18-inch wheels starts at $57,999 and has 509 km of range. The top-tier Preferred AWD Long Range with Ultimate Package and 20-inch wheels is $63,999, but takes a hit with range at 435 km.
All models will have the same 77.4-kWh, 800-volt battery system, which offers charging speeds of up to 350 kW. That means the Ioniq 6 can be charged from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in as little as 18 minutes and gain up to 322 kilometres of range in 15 minutes of charging.
Rear-drive models will have 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque with its single motor. The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive versions offer 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque, and are capable of going from 0 to 100 km/h in under five seconds. The battery also gets a pre-heater and charging preparations.
Inside, a 12.3-inch display is used for the driver’s instruments, while another 12.3-inch screen is for the infotainment system, which also features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A full suite of electronic driver safety aids comes standard, such as Highway Drive Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, and Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist among others. Heated front seats and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel are also standard and, for the first time for Hyundai, the Ioniq 6 will benefit from over-the-air updates.
