Hyundai globally debuted the IONIQ 6, which it describes as an “electrified streamliner.” Because it shares the same 800V E-GMP platform as the IONIQ 5, the IONIQ 6 makes its debut with a lot of the same features.

That being said, Hyundai has worked hard to improve several performance specifications on it newest EV, including significantly better range.

During the initial IONIQ brand launch, Hyundai shared details of its second EV scheduled for 2022, called the IONIQ 6. This all-electric sedan was based on the automaker’s concept EV called the “Prophecy.”

During the digital premiere event, space was one of three factors Hyundai designers and executives stressed in the design of the IONIQ 6. This is due in large part to the vehicle’s massive 2,950 mm wheelbase – just 49 mm shorter than the IONIQ 5.
