2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6: A Comprehensive Guide On Features, Specs, And Pricing


Hyundai is a Korean carmaker that’s been producing some of the best-selling cars driven in the U.S. for over half a century. Always innovating and keeping up with the newest and best tech in the industry, Hyundai claimed a place among the top EV manufacturers a couple of years ago with the release of the Ioniq 5 SUV in 2022, which was an instant hit.




Following the success of the original Ioniq 5, the automaker struck while the iron was hot and debuted the Hyundai Ioniq 6 just a year later in 2023. The Ioniq 6 is an all-electric sedan that was designed to immediately take on the giants in the industry, competing with the likes of the Tesla Model 3 as it strived to take over as one of the best EVs on the market. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 Ioniq 6.

TopSpeed’s Best Electric Car Of 2024: Hyundai IONIQ 6

The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is one of the highest-range EVs on the market today, but that’s not the only reason we’ve picked it as the best EV of 2024

What’s New For 2024


The Ioniq 6 just hit the roads last year, and Hyundai stuck with the debut design, making no changes to the 2024 model year. Even though there’s nothing new, there’s still plenty to get excited about with the new Ioniq 6. Thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic exterior and sleek styling, the Ioniq 6 won the World Car Design of the Year award at the 2023 World Card Awards. While there, the impressive electric sedan was also named World Car of the Year and World Electric Vehicle, showing just how big of a hit it has been since its release last year.

2024 Highlights

  • Aerodynamic design
  • Feature-packed interior
  • Up to 361 miles on a single charge
  • Huge all-digital dashboard
  • Up to 80-percent charge in 18 minutes

Specifications And Performance

Ultimate Red 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Limited driving
Hyundai

The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is available in three trims: SE, SEL, and Limited. For each trim, you can opt for a single-motor rear-wheel drive (RWD) setup or a dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration. In all trims, the RWD powertrain pumps out 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the AWD configuration ups these numbers to 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque.


Hyundai hasn’t provided any official top speeds or 0 to 60 miles per hour (MPH) numbers, but the AWD powertrain in the SEL and Limited trims is expected to reach 60 MPH in just about 4.3 seconds, while the less powerful motor setup should get you there in about 6.2 seconds. All trims are also powered by the same 77.4 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery available in the higher-tiered trims of the Ioniq 5 SUV, though you shouldn’t be surprised if you see Hyundai’s 58.0 kWh battery in an Ioniq 6 soon.

In addition to the trims currently available, Hyundai has ensured prospective buyers that the Ioniq 6 SE Standard will hit the roads later this year. While the full list of specs hasn’t been released yet, if it’s anything like the Ioniq 5 SE Standard, it will come with a smaller battery and have less power than the existing trims, but it will also almost certainly be the new cheapest option in the lineup.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Charging Time And Range

Hyundai

The Ioniq 6 SE is by far the most impressive trim in terms of range, going up to 361 miles on a single charge with the RWD configuration. This drops to 316 miles with the AWD setup, which is still among the best in its class for AWD EVs. From there, the higher tiers of the Ioniq 6 max out at 270 or 305 miles of range depending on if they come outfitted with the AWD or RWD drivetrain, respectively.


No matter which trim you opt for, Hyundai has made sure that drivers can get back on the road as quickly as possible with DC Fast Charging. At charging stations with at least 350 kilowatt (kW) charging capacity, the Ioniq 6 can go from 10% to 80% battery life in just 18 minutes, which is perfect for a quick pit stop or a nearly complete refill while you’re grocery shopping. All trims of the Ioniq 6 can also be charged at home overnight using 240-volt charging in just under 7 hours.

Hyundai makes charging even easier on EV buyers thanks to every Ioniq 6 coming with two years of complimentary charging sessions at Electrify America public charging stations around the country. As the biggest charging network in the States, getting free charging through Electrify America will make taking your Ioniq 6 on the road a breeze. Just plan your next road trip with these locations in mind and you can hit the roads without any range anxiety.

Interior Technology, Luxury, And Comfort

Best Interior Features Of The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6

  • Heated and ventilated seats
  • Massive all-digital dashboard
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Wireless device charging
  • Front seat footrests


The interior is one of the best things about the Ioniq 6, with Hyundai raising the bar for electric cars across the board. Just like the Ioniq 5 SUV, the Ioniq 6 has a roomy interior with available seating for five adults. Adding even more comfort, the front seats in all trims are heated, and the more expensive models get ventilated seats for warm-weather days. Topping this all off, the front seats recline and have built-in footrests so you can plug in for some Fast Charging and chill while you get some extra juice.

Since the Ioniq 6 is a sedan and not a crossover or SUV like the Ioniq 5, you won’t find too much cargo space. The front trunk (frunk) is limited to just 0.5 cubic feet, and the space behind the rear seats offers just 11.2 cubic feet of storage. At the very least, you can lay the rear seats down to expand this even more, and you’ll have plenty of space for luggage, groceries, or just about anything else you need to load up and take on the go.


Technology

The first time you take a seat behind the wheel of an Ioniq 6, the first thing you’ll notice is the huge all-digital dashboard stretching all the way to the passenger side. This single panel of glass houses both the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the 12.3-inch infotainment center touchscreen, putting all the tech you could ever need in one easy-to-reach place. The Ioniq 6 makes staying connected easy with Bluetooth using BlueLink, and all trims come with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


One thing to keep in mind is that only the newest 2024 Ioniq 6 models off the line come standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Due to a previous contract dispute among tech conglomerates, Hyundai was forced to disable this feature in previous model years, but if you buy a 2024 Ioniq 6, you should be able to perform an update to activate the wireless functionality.

Warranties

One of the calling cards from Hyundai over the years is the warranty that new models come with, and it gets even sweeter for EVs. Touted by the carmaker as America’s best warranty, all new Hyundais come with full coverage for 60 months/60,000 miles and a 12-month/12,000-mile maintenance warranty. On top of that, customers get 60 months of free roadside assistance and 84 months of corrosion coverage, both of which have no mileage limit.


Where it gets even better for EVs is the battery warranty, which is covered for 10 years/100,000 miles. The typical EV battery warranty across the industry is 8 years/100,000 miles, so you get a couple extra years’ worth of coverage on a new Ioniq 6.

2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Versus Its Competitors

In the electric sedan space, Tesla has been atop the class for years with the Model 3, making it the Ioniq 6’s biggest and best-known competitor right out of the gate. On the flip side, it’s worth looking at the Polestar 2, which is considerably less well-known but undoubtedly one of the best electric sedans on the market.

Even though the Tesla Model 3 has long been the standard of all-electric sedans, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is right there with it. Both models are available with RWD and AWD powertrain configurations, and they’re both powered by single or dual permanent-magnet motor setups. Diving a little deeper, the Model 3 tops out at 346 horsepower and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as 4.2 seconds. Similarly, the Ioniq 6 maxes out at 320 horsepower, enough to hit 60 MPH in 4.3 seconds. In short, their performance is identical.

When you go inside the car, that’s where the Ioniq 6 really sets itself apart. Like other Tesla EVs, the Model 3 maintains a fairly minimalist interior, which has left some customers feeling like something’s missing. Next to the high-tech, functionality-filled interior of the Hyundai, the Model 3 simply falls short.


Last up is the price, which goes to the Model 3 and its low starting price of $38,990, which is more than $3,000 cheaper than the Ioniq 6 SE. That said, keep in mind that the Ioniq 6 SE Standard will debut soon with a lower price that will likely rival that enticing entry point of the Tesla.

Next up is the 2024 Polestar 2, which has climbed the ranks as one of the best electric cars on the market since its debut just a couple of years ago. Stemming from the Polestar lineup of vehicles from Volvo, the Polestar 2 is the company’s first all-electric car, and it does a lot of things well, some even more so than the Hyundai Ioniq 6.

First and foremost, the Polestar 2 has an AWD configuration with an optional Performance Pack that pumps out an impressive 455 horsepower and 546 pound-feet of torque. Even with all that power, it just barely outpaces the Ioniq 6 in a sprint to 60 MPH and only comes with 247 miles of range, and its lower-tiered trims offer a much better overall balance between performance and range.

The biggest issue with the Polestar 2 is its high price compared to other electric sedans like the Ioniq 6. The cheapest trim of the Polestar 2 is just under $50,000, which is enough to buy nearly the fully-equipped Ioniq 6 Limited. To get the aforementioned AWD Performance Pack, you’d have to shell out $63,000, giving you way less bang for your buck than any trim of the Hyundai.

Prices for the Hyundai Ioniq 6 are on par with other all-electric sedans in its class, although they do tend to be on the lower end. The most affordable option is the SE with the RWD powertrain, which starts at $42,450. From there, you can upgrade to the SEL trim for $45,250, or go all-out and pay $50,150 for the Ioniq 6 Limited.

For all three trims, you can opt for the more powerful AWD configuration for an extra $3,500. Other features, special paint schemes, and delivery fees are extra if you’re customizing your own Ioniq 6.

Is It Worth Buying A Hyundai Ioniq 6?

2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6
Hyundai


Considering the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 is ranked as TopSpeed’s best electric car of the year, it should be at the very top of the list for anyone looking to buy a new EV. With its combination of class-leading range, responsive power, tech-packed interior, and inviting starting price of $42,450, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 delivers arguably the best bang for your buck of any all-electric sedan on the market.

After years spent atop the rest of the class, it’s time for the Tesla Model 3 to move over. There’s a new king in town, and it comes with a Hyundai badge on the front.
