2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Official EPA Range Revealed: Up to 361 Miles

Posted on
  • The 2023 EPA Hyundai Ioniq 6 range number is out, and the figure is better than the company’s previous estimates.
  • The best performing version manages 361 miles on a single charge, while the shortest range variant is still good at 270 miles.
  • All range figures with a 77.4 kWh battery pack. Smaller packages (with less reach) will join the lineup sometime after launch.

Since first launching the Ioniq 6 sedan, Hyundai has boasted that the slick sedan will offer the farthest reach of its siblings on the E-GMP platform. Now, the EPA’s official estimate is out, and the results verify the claim.

The rear-wheel-drive 225-hp single-motor Ioniq 6 SE (with 18-inch wheels) has an estimated range of 361 miles. The SE’s 320-hp dual-motor, all-wheel-drive is good for 316 miles.

The SEL and Limited trim levels (with 20-inch wheels) have slightly lower range figures of 305 miles on the single-motor, RWD variant and 270 miles on the dual-motor and AWD.

These range figures are for the 77.4 kWh battery pack, which will be the only one available when the Ioniq 6 goes on sale this spring. A smaller, 53.0-kWh unit (with a much shorter range) will join the lineup at some point later in the model year.

With the same powertrain and battery pack, the Ioniq 6 goes a step further than its EV siblings, the Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, and Genesis GV60. Part credit goes to the sedan’s slippery banana-shaped aerodynamic profile, which gives it a claimed drag coefficient of just 0.22 (foreign market versions with a side-view camera instead of mirrors are 0.21).

Asked about the large range difference between the Ioniq 6 model on 20-inch wheels versus the one rolling on 18 wheels, Hyundai said that the smaller wheels are also narrower and wear narrower tires with lower rolling resistance. The SE model is also less equipped than the SEL and Limited, making it slightly lighter.

Like other cars on the E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 6 will offer 400 and 800 volt charging. Plugged into a 350 kW charger, the Ioniq 6’s battery can be recharged from 10 to 80 percent in less than 20 minutes, according to Hyundai. The car will also offer V2L (vehicle-to-load) capability to power outside accessories, using the supplied adapter.

The Ioniq 6 goes on sale this spring. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but we expect it to be under $50,000.
