Hyundai shows off its Ioniq 6 electric vehicle for the first time

Hyundai has unveiled the design for Ioniq 6, its upcoming electric vehicle inspired by the Prophecy Concept EV unveiled in 2020. It retains the futuristic elements of the Prophecy without looking like a prop from a sci-fi movie, with its aerodynamic profile and clean lines. Hyundai says the vehicle will have an extremely low drag coefficient of 0.21 thanks in part to its low nose and active air flaps – most modern cars have an average drag coefficient of 0.25 or 0.3. Its elliptical wing-inspired spoiler and lightweight boat stern structure also help make it more aerodynamic.

Inside, the Ioniq 6 features a cocoon-shaped interior, upholstered in sustainable materials such as eco-leather or recycled PET fabric for the seats. The company’s modular electric vehicle platform allowed its designers to expand the dimensions of the car, giving it a completely flat floor for more legroom and space. For its entertainment and navigation system, it features a modular touchscreen dashboard with a 12-inch touchscreen display and a 12-inch digital cluster.

The automaker has yet to announce the electric vehicle’s specs, but to give you an idea, the Ioniq 5 has a 72.6kWh battery that can deliver up to 300 miles of range. It also boasts 320 horsepower, 446 pound-feet of torque and the ability to go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds. Hyundai will unveil the full specs and features of the Ioniq 6 during its world premiere in July.
