Hyundai recently pulled the plug on the original Ioniq, the teardrop-shaped model that you could get with a hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrain, but which was also on the price list as an electric Ioniq Electric. With the disappearance of the Ioniq, a whole series of Hyundais developed as electric cars will have the exclusive right to that model name. All Hyundai models developed as EV from the start are hung on the Ioniq label. The stubbornly designed Ioniq 5 was the first, but certainly not the last. This month, Hyundai will present the Ioniq 6 to the world, to which Hyundai hopes to draw attention with a few less revealing design sketches. Hyundai Ioniq 6 (illustration) The Ioniq 6 promises to be a somewhat banana-like model. That sounds a bit strange – especially when you read that Hyundai describes the Ioniq 6 as an Electrified Streamliner – but we mean well. Where the angular Ioniq 5 is the production version of the study model 45 Concept, the Ioniq 6 will be that of the Prophecy Concept from 2019. Albeit to a lesser extent. Hyundai sticks to the design of the show car, which is now several years old, for the headlights, taillights and overall shape, among other things. The Ioniq 6 has also been captured on espionage images several times, which made it clear that the car has a fairly crooked, curved shape. We have already drawn a digital production version on the basis of the packed copies, although it remains to be seen how Hyundai will actually fill in the front and back of the Ioniq 6. Like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the Ioniq 6 is on the E-GMP platform that Hyundai and sister brand Kia screw under their dedicated EVs. Don’t be surprised if the Ioniq 6, thanks to its more aerodynamic appearance on fully charged batteries, comes noticeably further than the Ioniq 5. Hyundai says it will soon release more teaser plates of the Ioniq 6. The Ioniq 6 will be unveiled in its entirety later this month. We expect 58 kWh and 77 kWh and both front- and four-wheel drive variants.
