The latest to join the ranks of battery-electric vehicles in Hyundai’s range in Malaysia is the Hyundai Ioniq 6, which arrives in Malaysia in two variants – the Ioniq 6 Max RWD, in RM289,888 and the Ioniq 6 Max AWD, at RM319,888.

Both Max RWD and dual-motor Max AWD are specified with a 77.4 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery, giving a battery range of 614 km in Max RWD and 519 km in Max AWD; both figures are based on the WLTP testing cycle. This offers the Ioniq 6 a larger battery capacity than the Ioniq 5, matching the Kia EV6.

The single-motor Max RWD has a rear-axle-mounted motor that puts out 168 kW (228 PS) and 350 Nm of torque, while the dual-motor Max AWD gets one motor per axle for a combined 239 kW (325 PS) and 605 Nm of torque.

This enables the Ioniq 6 Max RWD to do the 0-100 km/h run in 7.4 seconds while the more powerful Ioniq 6 Max AWD does the sprint benchmark in 5.1 seconds; both variants have a claimed top speed of 185 km/h, and a drag coefficient of 0.21 Cd, making the Ioniq 6 one of the most aerodynamically efficient cars in the world.

Its 800-volt electrical architecture as part of the E-GMP platform allows charging up to 350 kW DC, bringing a 10-80% state of charge in just 18 minutes; when charged at 50 kW DC, 10-80% top-up is achieved in 73 minutes.

This makes the Ioniq 6 only the fifth EV in Malaysia to use the 800-volt electrical architecture, after the Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron GT and the Ioniq 5 and EV6 twins. For charging at home, the Ioniq 6 can be recharged at 11 kW AC.

External measurements show that the Ioniq 6 is 4,855 mm long, 1,880 mm wide and 1,495 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,950 mm, where the rear luggage capacity is 401 liters. Front cargo capacity differs between the two variants, with the Max RWD getting a larger front compartment at 45 liters while the Max AWD makes 14.5 liters. Curb weights for the RWD and AWD variants are 1,910 kg and 2,020 kg, respectively.

The wheelbase of the Ioniq 6 is 50 mm shorter than the Ioniq 5, but 50 mm longer than the Kia EV6 wheelbase, which shares the group’s E-GMP platform. In Malaysia, the Ioniq 6 Max RWD is specified with 18-inch Aero wheels with 225/55R18 tires, while the dual-motor Max AWD variant gets 20-inch Performance wheels with 245/40R20 tires.

The exterior equipment consists of dual-LED headlamps with intelligent front-lighting, and Parametric Pixel LED rear combination tail lamps. Additional lighting equipment includes rear fog lamps, position lamps, side repeater lamps and power-adjustable and folding side exterior mirrors. The Max AWD variant adds a sunroof. Notable omissions from the Malaysian models are the Digital Side Mirrors and the Bluelink app support.

Inside, leather interior upholstery is specified for both variants, with power adjustment and lumbar support for the driver and front passenger. The driver gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a multi-function steering wheel, along with voice command functionality and an electrochromic interior rear-view mirror.

One noticeable change regarding the interior controls is the front window controls moved from the doors to the center console, like those found on classic Mercedes-Benz and BMW models. This is to free up more knee room next to the doors, and the center console is no longer a sliding unit like in the Ioniq 5.

In both variants, mobile connectivity supports wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Bluetooth; audio output is through a Bose eight-speaker system The cabin gets 64-color ambient lighting, while the rear seats get 60:40 split-folding. For vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality, external electrical devices can be powered up to 3.68 kW.

Safety equipment consists of seven airbags including a front central airbag, ABS, ESC, hill start assist, multi-collision brake, seat belt reminder and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

In terms of advanced driver assistance systems, both variants of the Ioniq 6 are equipped with blind-spot collision assist, lane keeping assist, forward collision avoidance assist, smart cruise control with stop-and-go, manual speed limit assist, Forward Collision Assist 2, remote smart parking assist, parking collision avoidance assist and surround view monitor.
