Hyundai is continuing the tease the forthcoming Ioniq 6 electric sedan through the release of a concept sketch of the car.
The South Korean car manufacturer has been quite open about the fact that the Ioniq 6 will look very similar to the Prophecy Concept unveiled in March 2020. This sketch confirms that this will indeed be the case as the Ioniq 6’s profile looks virtually identical to the concept.
Key elements of the EV’s design that we can see from this teaser include the curvaceous silhouette of the car and its large wheels. We can also see that it sports a large ducktail-style rear lip spoiler, similar to the spoiler of the Prophecy Concept. The rear overhang of the production car also appears largely identical to the concept.
Other key exterior design details of the Ioniq 6 will be similar pixel-style headlights and taillights to the Ioniq 5 and the new Staria.
Hyundai has yet to preview the interior of the car but last year, a prototype was spied in Korea, providing us with a glimpse of what to expect from the cabin. That prototype was equipped with digital cameras in place of traditional wing mirrors and also sported a floating center console that could slide backward and forwards like found in the Ioniq 5. The car will also land with a digital instrument cluster, an advanced head-up display, and a large infotainment system similar to other Hyundai models.
Underpinning the Ioniq 6 will be the same E-GMP platform as the likes of the Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, and Genesis GV60. Hyundai has previously said it will sport a 73 kWh battery pack and be offered with two different powertrains. The first of these will consist of a single electric motor with 215 hp while the second model will have a dual-motor system with a combined 308 hp. Hyundai is thought to be targeting a range exceeding 300 miles (482 km).
