The Ioniq 6 will be a sports sedan based on the same platform as the Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6
This model is set to be officially introduced later this month
The rendering is based on many pictures of the camouflaged prototypes
The launch of the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is due this month, but this has not stopped a couple of artists from making renderings that show what the final version of the car could look like.
This is what NYMammoth did by releasing a Youtube video showing their own interpretation of what was hiding beneath the camouflage worn by the multiple test prototypes spied on the roads over the last year.
In the image, the sedan’s distinctive roofline which tapers down significantly towards the rear is present, as well as the window line that follows the same pattern. These two elements contribute to giving the Ioniq 6 a stance that recalls an animal ready to pounce.
These two features are likely to make it to the production version since they are also seen on the Prophecy concept, which is the major inspiration source for the Ioniq 6.
The front end of the rendering appears boxier than the concept, with its large rectangular opening on the bottom, and the headlamps are of a more traditional shape instead of the stretched trapezoidal units filled with small LED squares found on the Prophecy. These small squares could be used on the production model, but only in a small strip at the bottom of each headlamp.
The image doesn’t show the rear of the vehicle, but it appears that the high-mounted spoiler found on the concept is installed on the rendering as well and the prototypes seen on the road hint that this feature will indeed make it to production.
A difference with the concept, however, is that the production version has been stretched by around 20 millimetres according to the chief designer. This will allow the larger 77.6 kWh battery pack found in the Ioniq 5 to fit in the new model in order to give it a better range.
The full details and the official look will be revealed later in the month when Hyundai proceeds with the launch of the Ioniq 6, which is set to enter production in July.
