After pleasantly surprising everyone with the arrival of the cutting edge IONIQ 5 model, many customers were eagerly waiting for the next installment of the Korean brand IONIQ 6. Inspired by Hyundai’s Prophecy electric concept car, the IONiQ 6 is characterized by clean and simple lines. and an aerodynamic shape that Hyundai designers describe as emotional efficiency.
Exterior, interior and autonomous design of the best car in the world
The first big surprise is in the design, which bears little resemblance to everything else we’ve seen so far. With a very bold and modern style, it responds to what Hyundai calls “fluid design”. The headlights have a torn silhouette, the daytime running lights are made up of two rows of LEDs that stand opposite in an almost robotic design. There’s a hallmark light in the middle of the bumper (six LEDs) that indicates the car’s battery power level. The front end is quite low and sharp, giving it that touch of sportiness that young drivers love.
It is designed with the aim of being a very aerodynamic and livable model, but without the conditioning to have a very elegant and impressive aesthetic.
The interior has a careful and simple design, as all door controls are attached to the central frame. The materials are pleasant and the ambient lighting adds a touch of warmth and modernity. When you first sit in the IONIQ 6 you discover a very modern dashboard that comprises two screens, most of the materials recycled from plastic and fishing nets. The leather-upholstered seats are very comfortable and anatomical. As was the case with the IONIQ 5, the IONIQ 6 offers us the possibility to relax in its front seats with the optional Relaxation Comfort that allows the backrests to recline into a zero-gravity position. Plus, being 30% thinner, they further expand interior space.
On the steering wheel, the logo gives way to four LED lights that indicate battery charge level and interact with the driver.
As far as the center console is concerned, Hyundai claims that it is the biggest and flattest console in the entire market. Therefore, it can be a good place to keep anything from a laptop to any other type of device without forgetting its two drink holders. Also, the USB ports are of the fast charging type. It also replaces traditional mirrors with cameras, which project the image onto two screens inside.
Furthermore, the South Korean firm continues to bet on the use of sustainable materials inside and out of this model, using bio-vegetable paint, fibers made from plastic waste and sustainable leather upholstery.
Hyundai, a leader in innovation and technology
2022 was undoubtedly the year in which the Korean brand Hyundai managed to become a benchmark for various solutions at the level of sustainable mobility thanks to the presentation of two zero-emission concepts and the arrival of this IONIQ 6 model.
The IONiQ 6 is Hyundai’s second model based on the company’s Electric Global Modular Platform, known as e-GMP, which offers users greater time efficiency by enabling faster charging and longer range.
Like the previous model, this new model features “Vehicle to Load” technology (bidirectional charging) which allows users to use or charge any electrical device while on the move or the car is parked. This allows us to use the charge stored in the battery anywhere to power an appliance such as a fridge, laptop or TV.
leader in future mobility
Hyundai knows that mobility is an essential part of society. The Korean brand aims to neutralize CO₂ emissions by 2045, increasingly moving towards more sustainable paths starting with the production chain.
One of the main objectives of the company is to neutralize its carbon emissions by 2045.
With the acquisition of Boston Dynamics, an innovator in this field, Hyundai focuses on advancing robotics to improve people’s lives through a range of mobility solutions. Noting that robotics and mobility are complementary, as one fuels the development of the other.
With this model as well as its plans for the future, Hyundai takes sustainability at all levels and will continue to do so. It all starts with individual mobilization, but only by working across sectors will it be possible to move towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly society.
