Hyundai Unveils the Ioniq 6 Ahead of Launch in July

Hyundai unveiled the design of the Ioniq 6 ahead of its official launch next month.

  • The Ioniq 6 takes most of the styling cues found in the Prophecy concept

  • Sustainable materials are used throughout the interior

  • The technical details will be revealed later in July

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 has finally been revealed after many teasers were unveiled over the last few months.

The electric sedan features in a number of images that depict its exterior and its interior, but the technical details will have to wait until next month before being published.

As was expected, the Ioniq 6 takes heavily from the Prophecy concept and this is evident in the overall shape of the vehicle, which features a pronounced curve, especially towards the rear. This curve is created by the roof and the window lines, which both turn downwards at each end of the sedan.

At the front, the bumper features a horizontal vent opening set between two vertical elements. This vent is mirrored by a black horizontal stripe that runs just over the front license plate. In keeping with the Ioniq design theme, the headlamps incorporate square pixel LEDs that are used for the daytime running lights and most likely for the turn signals.

The side profile features flush-mounted door handles and digital mirrors, which are cameras mounted in place of the traditional side mirrors. The images from these cameras are displayed on two screens installed at each end of the instrument panel.

The rear end is very distinctive with its dual duck-tail spoilers, the upper one sitting below the rear window and the lower one being installed just above the taillamps. The upper spoiler integrates the center stop light, which was shown to be a translucent light bar in a previous teaser.

Like the front, the rear lights are reminiscent of the Ioniq 5 since they are made of a full-width Pixel LED strip. The reverse lamps are included in two smaller vertical light clusters installed lower in the bumper.

Inside, the Ioniq 6 uses a similar instrument panel to the Ioniq 5 that is equipped with two 12-inch screens integrated into a single module. The major difference between the two Hyundai EVs is the presence of auxiliary screens for the digital side mirrors.

The interior features extensive use of ambient lighting, which runs along with the center air vents and the door panels. Drivers can choose 64 different colours for these lights, in addition to six dual-tone schemes.

In order to reduce its environmental footprint, the Ioniq 6 uses many sustainable materials, especially on the inside. This can be found on the seats, which can be clad in recycled PET fabric or eco-processed leather, and on the door panels, which are covered in bio-paints.

Hyundai says to expect the full details about the Ioniq 6 in July and arrival on sale later in the year for the 2023 model year.
