2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 EPA Range: Up to 361 MilesHyundai
  • 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 EPA range numbers are out, and they're better than the company's earlier estimates.

  • The best-performing version manages 361 miles on a charge, while the shortest-range variant is still good for 270 miles.

  • All range figures are with a 77.4-kWh battery pack. A smaller pack (with less range) will join the lineup sometime after launch.

From the time Hyundai first unveiled the Ioniq 6 sedan, it boasted that the slippery sedan would offer the most range of its siblings on the E-GMP platform. Now, official EPA estimates are out, and the results verify those claims.

The 225-hp single-motor, rear-wheel-drive Ioniq 6 SE (with 18-inch wheels) sees a headline-making range estimate of 361 miles. The 320-hp dual-motor, all-wheel-drive SE is good for 316 miles.

The SEL and Limited trim levels (with 20-inch wheels) have somewhat lower range figures of 305 miles for the single-motor, RWD variant and 270 miles with dual motors 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 commensurately 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 farther than its EV siblings, the Ioniq 5, the Kia EV6, and the Genesis GV60. Credit in part goes to the banana-shaped sedan's slippery aerodynamic profile, which gives it a claimed coefficient of drag of just 0.22 (foreign-market versions with side-view cameras instead of mirrors are 0.21).

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

Like the other cars on the E-GMP platform, the Ioniq 6 will offer both 400- and 800-volt charging. Hooked up to a 350-kW charger, the Ioniq 6 battery can be replenished 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 an available adaptor.

The Ioniq 6 goes on sale this spring. Pricing has not been announced, but we estimate it will come in under $50,000.
