The Ioniq 6 looks like a true luxury vehicle.
Following the Ioniq 5's successful debut, the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 will join the Ioniq family in late 2022 as a sexy four-door sedan. Based on the stunning Prophecy Concept, the Ioniq 6 should sport either a single motor setup with 215 horsepower or a dual-motor system with 308 hp and at least 300 miles of driving range. We can't wait to see what the car looks like in full, but AutoSpy managed to sneak some up-close pictures of the interior before then.
The dashboard looks similar to the Ioniq 5 SUV, though a few key differences make this stand out as the Ioniq 6. For starters, it features a more traditional center console rather than the open space in the 5. It appears that the center console, not the doors, will house the car's window switches.
Like its SUV sibling, the Ioniq 6 gets two massive screens, one to handle infotainment and the other to show vehicle information. A slightly obscured glimpse of the seats and door card reveals the Ioniq 6's premium cabin, which should use eco-friendly materials. Unfortunately, we can't tell if this car will have the same reclining seat found in the Ioniq 5.
The spy shots do reveal the back seats, which look very accommodating. The Ioniq 5 already has an expansive wheelbase, but the Ioniq 6 could be even longer. Hyundai designed the interior to be a "smart living space," with highly adjustable seats and tremendous passenger space.
Not much else is known about the Ioniq 6, so we'll have to wait for more information in 2022. But judging by these early spy shots, claims of this being a "budget Taycan" don't seem so farfetched. After Hyundai reveals the Ioniq 6 sedan, its next EV should be a Palisade-sized three-row model called the Ioniq 7, sporting a dual-motor setup with around 300 miles of range.
