Hyundai has bold plans to expand its all-electric vehicle lineup over the next few years. In February, it presented the Ioniq 5, the first of its new Ioniq sub-brand, which the Ioniq 6 sedan will soon join. Spy photos have shown the sleek Ioniq 6 channeling its best imitation of the Prophecy concept, although a new video from CarSpyMedia’s YouTube channel gives us an idea of what it will look like when it moves.
The video captures the sedan driving on various German roads, and although the car itself seems quiet, there is still a lot of tire and road noise emanating from the car. Other noises mask any electric motor whine or artificial sound. The car also continues to wear heavy coating and camouflage, which distorts the sedan’s alleged swoopy shape. It doesn’t look as stylish as the concept, although that could be the result of the cover-up, as the production version could be as bold as the concept when revealed.
The Ioniq 6 will run on Hyundai’s E-GMP platform, which also underpins the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 and a host of the brand’s electric vehicles, including models from Genesis and Kia. The shared platform means we’ll likely see the powertrains from the Ioniq 5 make their way into the Ioniq 6. The single-engine rear-wheel drive model is expected to deliver around 300 miles of range, while the dual-engine All-wheel drive the variant is expected to provide around 270 miles.
We expect a high-performance N variant to arrive at some point as well, offering even more performance, although this will likely debut after the usual variants break coverage. The 6 appears to be production-ready in the video, although the reality is we’ll have to wait a bit for the official reveal. Hyundai is not expected to launch the new electric vehicle until late next year before it arrives as a 2023 model.
