Is it a Model 3 killer? (Hyundai Ioniq 6 review walkaround)
– this is a key model for hyundai theyre, moving right into the tesla model, 3s territory, which has been one of the worlds best selling electric cars for years now, of course, suvs are Kind of the rage in the private market back in australia, but the whole point of an electric car like the ionic six, is that its not high off the ground. The streamliner shape is a little controversial youll, either love it or youll hate it. But the reason hyundai have penned the car to look like this is to get its energy efficiency up, get its range up and hyundai promises 610 kilometers. If you go for the rear, drive version with 18 inch wheels. Now this car ive got next to me here in gravity gold. This is a full fat. Dual motor all wheel, drive ionic 6 with 2′ kilowatts of power. 605 newton meters of torque and range is probably going to fall a little closer to 500 ks than 600 ks when the wltp certifies this car. But when it lands in australia in the first half of 2023 were going to be looking at a price range of sort of 70 to 80 grand very similar to the ionic 5, which will continue alongside the ionic 6 in the australian market and later theyll. Also be an ionic 7 suv, which should be pretty cool now in todays video well take a peek inside the ionic 6, well check out the interior ill.
Tell you a little bit about whats happening underneath this car and some expectations when it joins us back home. In australia, but for now let me know your thoughts. What do you think of the design of the ionic six very keen to hear your views and hit subscribe here inside the ionic six? The design is pretty familiar from that of the ionic five, but its been refined a little bit further. You feel like the car is half a generation ahead and arguably, i would say the ion x6 is a little bit more premium. The ionic 5, even though theyre going to be priced pretty similarly in australia, here weve got twin 12.3 inch screens, but theyre now encased in this really nice metal look kind of edging to it. I think it looks really classy actually, but the infotainment system is identical to what weve seen on the ionic 5 and basically, every current generation hyundai product in the center over here youve got your navigation, media, wired, apple, carplay and android. Auto still, no news on wireless. Unfortunately, and in front of us we have our trip information, but we dont have the blind spot cameras in this screen, because the ionic 6 is available with digital camera mirrors, which will come to australia. I would suggest theyll be available on the top spec car, because there will be a top spec and like a mid spec vehicle in australia. Much like the ionic 5 for 2023, a dynamic model and a technic model on top.
However, at launch were only going to get the 77.4 kilowatt hour battery in australia. There is a smaller, lighter, 53 kilowatt hour battery overseas, which we could get later on and just like with ionic 5 and the kia ev6 and the genesis gv60, there are a rear wheel, drive and an all drive powertrain about 168 kilowatts of power for rear drive And 2′ kilowatts of power for all wheel drive here in the cabin really like this bridge type center console. You can kind of rest a laptop on there if you want this is where youll find your window controls and mirrors over here. The door is buttonless, which is really cool. This cars got a lot of ambient lighting customizable colors weve got still got a proper climate control panel here, which makes it nice and easy to use really cool steering wheel. Now there is actually ambient lighting and lit uh dots or squares up here, parametric pixels. If i can get that right, which is the hyundai ioniq signature, and they actually show you how much the vehicle is charged, which is pretty cool and also when the speech voice. Recognition function is happening, paddles for your regen cool chunky, stalks, so theres, the familiar from the ionic five and the new for the ionic six. Now this cars got a light. Color interior theres also a dark which will be available and a bunch of cool colors outside when the car arrives in australia in sort of six to nine months.
So those are some very, very first impressions of the new hyundai ioniq 6 here in busan, where the car has been revealed to the world great to see it in the flesh, particularly here around the back initially in the photos. I thought that this angle was a little bit challenging, but i think youll agree when you see the car in the middle, its quite a cohesive product and strong elements of sort of porsche 993 here, which is never a bad thing. Parametric picture lighting weve got a sedan boot in this car integrated into the sort of camera arrangement there, so no lift back but decent aperture here for your golf clubs, etc. Power tailgate bunch of cool colors, as i was saying, are going to be available for this car when it arrives in australia to compete with the likes of the tesla model 3 and the polstar 2.. So very keen to know your opinion now. Let me know down below this video what your impressions are of the ionic 6..
