The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Is Rated With A Range Of Up To 361 Miles By The EPA

Posted on

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 for the US market debuted last November. The automaker disclosed it with an estimated 340-mile all-electric range for its single-motor, long-range model, and Hyundai has beaten that figure. The US EPA has officially rated the Ioniq 6 with a larger battery and rear-wheel drive with a range of up to 361 miles.

Hyundai hits that mark by giving the Ioniq 6 a very slippery 0.22 drag coefficient. That’s actually 0.1 taller than the Korean market model, allowing the automaker to replace traditional side mirrors with slim cameras. Sorry, America.

Hyundai has predicted that a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version with a larger battery will travel 310 miles, and the automaker is outpacing that as well. The EPA rates that variant with a range of up to 316 miles. The US EPA also rates EVs for a combined of up to 140 MPGe, which is placing one Ioniq 6 trim on par with two Lucid Air variants.

Hyundai offers the Ioniq 6 with a 77.4 kilowatt-hour battery pack. The larger battery RWD motor produces 225 horsepower (168 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (350 Newton-meters) of torque. The dual-motor version produced a combined 320 hp (239 kW) and 446 lb-ft (605 Nm) of torque.

Hyundai maximizes interior space by giving EVs a level floor. Automakers are further expanding cabin space by removing the knobs from the doors. The automaker packed the car with technology, including two 12.3-inch digital displays. It’s even capable of receiving over-the-air updates for future upgrades, allowing the company to tweak things like throttle response or response to tow.

The new Hyundai Ioniq 6 will be available in dealerships sometime this spring. Hyundai hasn’t announced pricing information for the new EV yet, and we expect it to be closer to the car’s on-sale date. Spring arrives on March 20.
