Hyundai Motor Company announced that its IONIQ 6 electrified streamliner will deliver 614 km (about 382 miles) of all-electric range per charge, according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
With WLTP-rated energy consumption of 13.9 kWh/100 km, the IONIQ 6 will be for sale later this year in select markets in Europe and next year in North America.
“From the start of IONIQ 6’s development, we set our sights on making it the leading all-electric range EV,” said Jae Ho Huh, head of Sub-Mid Project Management Center at Hyundai. “To become the global leader in electric vehicles, we are committed to providing the best possible EV performance and ownership experience.”
IONIQ 6’s all-electric range performance is made possible in large part by Hyundai’s architecture for EVs, Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), and the electrified streamliner’s wind resistance, according to the news release. E-GMP provides 800V ultra-fast charging from 10-80% in 18 minutes and supports 400V charging.
Hyundair added that the vehicle’s drag coefficient of 0.21 is the lowest in the company’s vehicle lineup.
“We put every effort into designing the most efficient car in the EV segment,” said Byung Hoon Min, head of Total Vehicle Performance Development Center at Hyundai. “Our focus on improving aerodynamics helped to achieve one of the longest all-electric range vehicles available, which will reduce customers’ EV range anxiety and help grow the segment.”
