prices will be close to the Ioniq 5

Hyundai will announce pricing for the Ioniq 6 in late October. But the brand has told us that they will be similar to the Ioniq 5.

Ioniq 6 secretly landed in France. Expected to hit dealerships in late 2022 or even early 2023, it was presented to the French press this week. If Automobile-Propre already had the opportunity to see it before its first appearance with a personal presentation of its designer, this was the opportunity to see it again and get more information before the launch.

Prices for this original sedan will be announced at the end of October. Hyundai has given us the first indication that they will be very close to the Ioniq 5. However, the 6 is more impressive. But the technical part of the two cars is the same, with the E-GMP platform and batteries of two sizes. For 6, it will be 53 and 77.4 kWh. The newcomer takes advantage of its much slimmer silhouette to offer better autonomy. The Ioniq 6 claims 614km on the WLTP combined cycle, compared to the Ioniq 5’s 507km.

The latter starts in France at 46,500 euros with a small battery and 49,700 euros with a large one. By announcing similar prices for the Ioniq 6, the brand is giving customers a choice: better autonomy or a more practical aspect! This sedan really sins.

As we saw during this preview, while rear-seat accommodation is regal thanks to the gigantic (2.95m) wheelbase, accessibility is compromised by the roof drop. The black dot refers to the barrel: the barrel has a small opening. The loading sill also forms an awkward step.

However, a sales duel would be intense. Hyundai told us it expects a 50/50 split between the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 in France, with a full-year target of 3,000 units for each car.
