Inside, the cabin continues to house two large 12-inch screens, one for infotainment and the other for the driver’s cockpit. The eco-friendly cabin is designed to cocoon its occupants with mindful personal space and practical features for an elevated mobility experience. Other new features on the inside include buttonless slim doors, a bridge-type central console with storage space, a sliding glove box, 64-color dual ambient lighting, and speed sync lighting on the front doors among others. The use of a dedicated EV platform helps the Ioniq 6 achieve a flat floor at the rear, which helps in accommodating 5 passengers with ease.
The Ioniq 6 is offered in two battery packs, which include a 53kWh unit and a 77kWh unit. The RWD version generates 228hp of power and 350Nm of torque, while the AWD version with a dual motor setup produces 325hp and 605Nm. Depending on the variant, the vehicle offers a WLTP-certified driving range between 429km and 614km.
