Hyundai Motor Company announced that its IONIQ 6 electrified streamliner will deliver 614 km (about 382 miles) of all-electric range per charge, according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
IONIQ 6 customers will benefit from Hyundai Motor Group’s commitment to develop advanced battery technology that enables stress-free driving performance and long range. With WLTP-rated energy consumption of 13.9 kWh/100 km, IONIQ 6 will be one of the most energy-efficient electric vehicles (EV) on the market when it goes on sale later this year in select markets in Europe and next year in North America.
“From the start of IONIQ 6’s development, we set our sights on making it the leading all-electric range EV,” said Jae Ho Huh, Head of Sub-Mid Project Management Center at Hyundai Motor Company. “To become the global leader in electric vehicles, we are committed to providing the best possible EV performance and ownership experience.”
IONIQ 6’s superb all-electric range performance is made possible in large part by Hyundai Motor Group’s dedicated architecture for EVs, Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), and the electrified streamliner’s ultra-low wind resistance. E-GMP delivers optimal electric performance and provides 800V ultra-fast charging from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes and supports 400V charging without the need for additional components or adapters.
Having a platform specifically for EVs also means Hyundai Motor is better able to design vehicles to best meet passengers’ needs. With E-GMP, IONIQ 6 can be a workstation or a portable power bank on wheels, creating new usage scenarios to fit customers’ diverse, on-the-go lifestyles.
