Hyundai Motor has today announced the start of pre-sales for the its highly-anticipated IONIQ 6 First Edition, the second model in Hyundai’s EV-dedicated IONIQ line-up brand. IONIQ 6 First Edition is limited to 2,500 units and will be available in Hyundai’s key EV markets: Germany, the UK, France, Norway, and the Netherlands.

Built on Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), IONIQ 6 is equipped with an array of advanced technologies and a customer-centric, spacious interior. In addition, it provides an extended range of up to 614 kilometres on a single charge (WLTP-combined), redefining the boundaries of electric mobility.

That range is aided by an ultra-low drag coefficient of just 0.21, assisted by its low-sitting front surface, active air flaps at the front and wheel gap reducers. IONIQ 6’s cocoon-shaped interior serves as both a comfortable hideaway and personal space, replete with optimised legroom, practical features and sustainable materials to facilitate a mindful, eco-friendly mobility experience and lifestyle.

The international motoring and tech media have expressed their excitement about IONIQ 6’s exterior and interior design, spaciousness and all-electric range, in particular. Top Gear said the IONIQ 6 demonstrated Hyundai’s “considerable self-belief" in its electrification strategy, while influencer Marques Brownlee, who runs the popular MKBHD YouTube channel with over 15 million subscribers, described the Electrified Streamliner as “one of the best deals for an EV”.
