Hyundai has announced the price of the much-anticipated IONIQ 6 limited volume First Edition at £54,995.
Built on Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the IONIQ 6 is equipped with an array of advanced technologies and provides the First Edition with an extended range of up to 320 miles on a single charge (WLTP-combined), the company said.
That range is aided by an ultra-low drag coefficient of 0.21, assisted by its low-sitting front surface, active air flaps at the front and wheel gap reducers. The vehicle’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 First Edition uses a 77.4 kWh battery with all-wheel drive powertrain to provide 325PS of power and 605 Nm of torque. The E-GMP platform’s 800v charging system with 350kW ultra-fast charger compatibility also includes a battery heating system, the company said.
On the outside, the model’s 20-inch wheels feature a matte black finish. Meanwhile, glossy black mouldings on the front, rear, and side as well as glossy black mirror caps emphasise a sleek look.
Customers can select from four exterior body colours: biophilic blue pearl, serenity white pearl, nocturne grey metallic and gravity gold matte. The vehicle is the first Hyundai model to introduce the new design of the ‘H’ emblem, finished in black aluminium on the First Edition.
It has a black interior with a black headliner. In addition, exclusive leather combination seats feature grey Tartan fabric inspired by Hyundai’s Prophecy EV concept. The model is also equipped with dedicated First Edition ECONYL® floor mats with grey Tartan highlights.
The IONIQ 6 will be available in two other trim levels; Premium and Ultimate. Pricing and specification for these will be announced soon, the company said.
The company is also giving a free one-year subscription to an Ionity premium package, through Hyundai’s pan-European integrated public charging service Charge myHyundai. The service offers access to over 400,000 charging points across Europe, including AC and DC connectors.
“IONIQ 6 has already received an overwhelmingly positive response from customers and media alike with its combination of streamliner styling and long-distance EV performance,” said Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK.
