5 things to know about the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV

Hyundai Sime Darby Motors is ready to cause a stir in the Malaysian market with a slew of new models in 2023. The brand via a short video teaser gave us a preview of its upcoming models, including the Creta, the new Santa Fe, the new Palisade, and the Ioniq 6. The first three models are internal combustion engine-powered SUVs while the latter is an all-electric four-door streamliner sedan. Today, we will be discussing 5 important things you should know about this upcoming EV, so let’s get started.

Hyundai Ioniq 6

Ultra-low drag coefficient 

The single-curved Hyundai EV features sleek yet functional aesthetics offering an ultra-low drag coefficient of just 0.21. These comprise low nose, active front air flaps, wheel gap reducers, and slim digital side mirrors. Further assisting the impressive aerodynamic aptitude is the boat-tail structure of the EV, elliptical wing-inspired spoiler with wingets, and separation traps on the rear bumper. Underneath the car, we can also see a covered undercarriage, reduced wheel-arch gap, and optimised deflectors adding to its aerodynamics.

Over 700 Parametric Pixels

The ethical and unique design of the EV further highlights its uniqueness. It comes integrated with more than 700 Parametric Pixels positioned at various places like headlights, rear combination lights, lower sensors at the front, 4-dot on the steering wheel, centre console indicator, air vent garnishes, and more. Also part of the kit is the Parametric Pixel High-Mounted Stop Lamp on the rear wing, which displays an eye-catching light impression when the driver applies the brakes. All these together reinforce the Ioniq brand’s identity throughout the sedan.

The shape of the Hyundai Ioniq 6’ interior is inspired by a cocoon and touted as a “mindful personal space on wheels”. It offers optimised legroom and spaciousness to the occupants thanks to Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric Global Modular Platform. Adding to it is the user-centric interior architecture of the EV. The ergonomically designed control unit integrates a 12-inch digital cluster and a 12-inch infotainment display.

In the global markets, Hyundai offers a range of drive motors for the EV suiting all sorts of customers. These include an RWD single-motor and an AWD dual-motor.
