The Ioniq 6 is expected to ditch conventional wing mirrors and adopt side cameras. If the upcoming electric sedan adopts sleek cameras instead of traditional mirrors, it would improve the aerodynamics of the car. Also, it is likely to come with improved door handles which would remain flush with the body when not in use. These are some of the features already seen on the Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric crossover.
Inside the cabin, the EV will appear sleek and stylish with a premium vibe on offer. There would be sleek bezels on the digital instrument cluster and touchscreen infotainment system. For the powertrain, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 will come with a larger than 77.4 kWh battery pack. There would be dual electric motors, AWD etc.
Series production of the EV at the Asan Plant in South Korea is likely to start in July, with the first deliveries to customers expected to take place by end of 2022.
