Hyundai has introduced the pricing construction for its subsequent electrical car, the Ioniq 6. And it is aggressive, particularly with the introduction of a smaller battery choice. In consequence, the curvaceous EV begins at simply $41,600, with the vary topping out at $56,100.

Hyundai says that the $41,600 Ioniq 6 SE RWD commonplace vary, which can use a 53 kWh battery pack for a variety of 240 miles (386 km), might be “out there in restricted portions this summer season,” suggesting it is perhaps laborious to trace one down.

An EV vary of 240 miles might be sufficient to evoke vary anxiousness in lots of non-EV drivers. However do not fret; the Ioniq 6 SE RWD lengthy vary, which makes use of a 77.4 kWh battery pack to finest impact and 361 miles (581 km), is the next-cheapest at simply $45,500. Including a second motor to the long-range Ioniq 6 bumps the worth as much as $49,000 and drops the vary to a still-impressive 316 miles (509 km).

The SEL and Restricted trims each include 20-inch wheels that drop the vary to 305 miles (491 km) for the rear-wheel drive variations (SEL, $47,700; Restricted $52,600) and 270 miles (435 km) for all-wheel drive (SEL, $51,500; Restricted, $56,100).

As has come to be the case with Hyundai, there’s loads of commonplace gear on the Ioniq 6, together with a collection of superior driver help techniques together with blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, adaptive cruise management, and lane conserving.

The Ioniq 6 makes use of Hyundai Motor Group’s new E-GMP platform, purpose-designed for medium and bigger BEVs. It makes use of an 800 V electrical structure that, amongst different efficiencies, permits for very fast DC charging, taking a battery from 10-80 p.c state of cost in simply 18 minutes.

We have already sampled E-GMP to good impact within the ’80s-inspired Ioniq 5 crossover, Kia’s EV6, and the Genesis GV60, every of which proved a reliable and environment friendly EV. Ars has truly had some seat time within the Ioniq 6 now, too, however we’re not allowed to inform you the way it drives till early April.
