The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Packs Power, Range, and Style

After debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 has officially landed in North America. And with its fresh appearance, we also have some specs and numbers to digest.

It’s a fast charger with great style and range. The Ioniq 6 could be an excellent EV option for many folks.

What Does the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Look Like?

Hyundai has given the Ioniq 6 a unique streamlined look. It’s not just style for style’s sake, though, as the Ioniq 6 is incredibly slippery through the air. The drag coefficient is just 0.22, which puts it on the very low end of the production car spectrum.

Additionally, the Ioniq 6 sits on a 116-inch wheelbase with wheels pushed out toward the overhangs. That means you’re going to find a good amount of space on the inside. And it’s a cabin that manages to blend simplicity with refinement.

Ahead of the driver is a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster that flows directly into a 12.3-inch infotainment display. You can change the color of the interior illumination. The materials used are eco-friendly. And if you want to leave your key at home, you can use an iPhone, Apple Watch, or Samsung Galaxy to lock, unlock, and start the car.

What Are the Range and Performance Specs of the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6?

That’s all well and good, but it’s the powertrain and charging speeds that are most interesting here. Hyundai has fitted the Ioniq 6 with a 77.4-kWh pack. There are two layouts available; one with a singular rear motor or a dual motor setup with one front and one rear.

The single-motor setup is good for 225 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. And with this version, the range is estimated to land at a very impressive 340 miles. But if you seek more power, the dual-motor AWD Ioniq 6 makes 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque. This one can run from 0-60 mph in under five seconds. And it will still return over 300 miles, with Hyundai estimating a range of 310.

What Is the Charging Speed of the 2023 Ioniq 6?

The Ioniq 6 is a blazer for charging speeds since it can run on 400-volt and 800-volt architectures. At a 350-kW station, the Ioniq 6 will go from 10% to 80% battery life in just 18 minutes. And if you’ve only got five minutes to spare, you can get back 65 miles of range. To fully charge up on a Level 2 charger, talking 0% to 100%, it will take seven hours and 10 minutes. So when you plug in at home and have the car sucking down electrons in the middle of the night, it will be ready for your morning commute.

I hope Hyundai also builds up an N version of the Ioniq 6 because you know they left more power on the table. Yes, it makes sense for range maximization reasons, but I still want to see what a fully unleashed N-tuned version can do. With the press of some buttons, this thing is capable of nearly 600 hp, based on what we’ve seen from the Kia side of the family.

When Will the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Be Available?

Hyundai hasn’t announced official pricing for the Ioniq 6 yet. But we expect it to arrive with a starting price in the low-$40,000 range. And you can expect a loaded-up dual-motor AWD version to climb as high as the mid-$50,000 range. And then, dear Hyundai, how about that Ioniq 6 N, right around $60,000? Let’s make that happen!
