New IONIQ 6 to start from £46,745, Hyundai announce
The all-electric IONIQ 6 saloon is available in two trim levels, as well as rear-wheel and four-wheel drive configurations
Hyundai has announced UK pricing and trim details for its all-electric Ioniq 6 range.
The 225bhp rear-wheel drive model in the ‘Premium’ spec will start from £46,745.
It comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, electrically operated and folding door mirrors, flush door handles, privacy glass, front and rear LED lighting, and a rear spoiler with an integrated LED brake light.
Standard equipment inside includes electronically controlled and heated front seats with separate lumbar support, heated rear seats, and a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The rear-wheel drive model in ‘Ultimate’ guise comes in at £50,245, and is equipped with additional features such as a head-up display, a seven speaker sound system from Bose, as well as an electronic sunroof.
Meanwhile, onboard safety tech includes blind spot view monitoring and park assist.
Higher up the IONIQ 6 range are the dual motor four- wheel drive models that make 320bhp. They start from £50,245 for Premium, and £53,745 for Ultimate.
With greater traction and more power, the all-wheel drive IONIQ 6 does 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds - 2.4 seconds quicker than the rear-wheel drive model (7.4).
Both configurations use a 77.4 kWh battery which is said to provide up to 320 miles of range.
Thanks to the Hyundai Motor Group’s dedicated battery electric E-GMP platform, which has an 800V charging system, the car can support up to 350kW of ultra-fast charging, meaning the battery can be replenished from 10 to 80 percent in 20 minutes.
IONIQ 6 Premium and Ultimate models also come available in a choice of 11 colours. Byte Blue Pearl is a no cost option, though other pearl and metallic finishes cost £585 extra, with matte finishes priced at £685.
Production of the IONIQ 6 began in the third quarter of 2022, ahead of UK deliveries expected to start at the beginning of 2023
