Hyundai’s electric Ioniq 6 Streamliner has space to work away from home

After serving a potential camping companion in the Ioniq 5 electric crossover, Hyundai EVP and head of design SangYup Lee presented the recently-discovered Ioniq 6 as a “personal mobile studio” where you can not only work but relax and revitalize. During a press briefing this week, the car was described as a “cocoon-like private space.”

If you get bored of working in a home office, how do you switch to a running office? It has 64 different interior colors and six pre-selected themes that match your mood. These can be brighter as you accelerate – a top-of-the-line model with two motors and AWD can do 0-100km / h (62.14 mph) in 5.1 seconds – to keep you aware of your driving speed.

The Automaker emphasizes features of remote work such as a “bridge type” center console designed to hold a laptop and a note application built into one of two 12-inch screens. There are also four USB-C ports, with one USB port helping to maximize cabin space for various devices and slimmer car seats. Hyundai maintains that they are still very comfortable and even designed to sleep leaning backwards.

And its “streamliner” shape is not just for aesthetics. The Ioniq 6’s 0.21 drag coefficient helps reduce power consumption to 14kWh per 100km, giving it a range of approximately 610km or about 379-miles from a long-range 77.4-kWh battery (although estimates are expected based on the European WLTP range. EPA Range must be small). There is also a standard-range option with a 53-kWh battery. At the press briefing, the Ioniq 6 also has a side view camera instead of the traditional mirror, which is less likely to be seen in the United States.

The Ioniq 6 sedan targets young professionals who want more technology in the company’s advice, while the Ioniq 5 is more for young families who need the space and functionality of an SUV. While both vehicles are built on Automaker’s E-GMP electric vehicle platform, the Ioniq 6 includes auto 2WD / 4WD switching, additional tuning features, and better performance and efficiency for upgrades to motor and drivetrain. And most importantly, the Ioniq 6 will be Hyundai’s first car to support over-the-air software updates.

Hyundai is also launching an Ioniq 6 NFT collection and said the car will be available for practical experience at Automaker’s Metaverse Studio in Zepeto. Robolex অভিজ্ঞতা Supports VR headsets for further immersion of experience and Ioniq 6 online experience

Hyundai plans to start production of the Ioniq 6 in Korea in the third quarter of this year, then in Europe later this year. In the United States, it is planned to go into production in January 2023, but the company has not confirmed whether EVT will be built at its upcoming plant in Savannah, Georgia. US availability will match supply and demand, but currently, there are no plans for a nationwide release (Ionic 5 is currently sold in 38 states).

“By 2030, Hyundai will expand its all-electric line-up to 11 models to secure global EV leadership,” said Hyundai CEO Jahun Chang, driving the XL-sized Seven Concept SUV with a glimpse of the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6.

According to this recent Bloomberg report, Hyundai is taking EVs seriously enough to pass on to other big automakers (excluding Tesla) in EV sales – let’s hope its engineers won’t be forced to do all their work in Ioniq 6 from now on.
