Ambitious Development of 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 to Rival Tesla Model 3

When Hyundai is planning on making their 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6, they are planning on going into rivalry with Tesla Model 3. Intended as a four-door vehicle, the Ioniq sub-brand consists of EVs, sharing components with the bigger, boxier, and taller Ioniq 5. Because Model 3 is an electric ride, it’s only logical if the Ioniq 6 is also designed as the next EV sedan from the company. It also means that single motor configurations, as well as dual motor configurations, would be provided, along with two battery packs.

2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Range

Because of the combination of a (bigger) battery pack and aerodynamic shape, the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is said to cover 400 miles of distance within specific configurations. This style is supported (and inspired) by the Prophecy concept, which is Hyundai’s concept. You have to admit that the Ioniq 6 is designed as a stylish, speedy, and futuristic vehicle while maintaining a luxurious cabin and different technologies. Compared to other Hyundai models, especially Elantra and Sonata gas-powered sedans, the Ioniq 6 has more features and technologies.

The Updated Plan

The Ioniq 6 is considered a new addition to the lineup. It has been lined up numerically, positioned between the already existing Ioniq 5 and the future (upcoming) Ioniq 7. However, unlike the other ‘numbers,’ the Ioniq 6 is designed as a sedan. It means that it has a lower profile construction than the taller crossovers.

2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Price

The price depends on the trim levels. It is predicted that the basic SE would be set at around $42,000, while the SEL would be set at about $48,000. The highest trim would be the Limited set at about $54,000. When compared to Ioniq 5, the price of Ioniq 6 would be a bit higher. In general, the Ioniq 5 starts at around $41,000. The future 2024 Ioniq 6 may come with similar powertrain configurations and trim levels. It may have more significant and smaller battery packs, offered as an all-wheel or rear-wheel driving system.

Powertrain and Performance

Ioniq 6 is sharing platforms with the previous Ioniq 5. It also means that the powertrains would likely be the same. The base trim model would run on one electric motor on the rear wheels. The more expensive versions would run on dual motors for all-wheel driving systems. As you can imagine, the dual motors would run on the front and rear sides. The company hasn’t released detailed horsepower info, but many have predicted it may share Ioniq 5’s outcome, which is 168 hp. The dual motor can generate 321 hp.

Battery life and Charging

To be considered worthy of competing against Model 3, Ioniq 6 needs to have a minimum of 300 miles of coverage, and it seems that the vehicle can deliver such a performance. The company even believes that the optional and bigger 77.4 kWh (battery) pack in Ioniq 6 can effortlessly cover 400 miles of distance. The company hasn’t disclosed the official EPA rating yet, but the company is confident. The base trim battery (with one motor) has a smaller battery with a 55.0 kWh capacity.
