The all-electric 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 6 has completed final EPA testing with the IONIQ 6 SE Long Range RWD trim receiving an EPA-estimated range of 361 miles, according to the company’s news release.
The IONIQ 6 SE AWD achieved an EPA-estimated range of 316 miles.
EPA testing also confirmed a 140 combined MPGe rating for the IONIQ 6 SE RWD Long Range.
“Continually improving the efficiency of our vehicles is always a top priority for our development teams,” said Olabisi Boyle, VP of product planning and mobility strategy at Hyundai Motor North America. “Instead of just adding a larger battery to increase the range, we chose to optimize IONIQ 6’s aerodynamic performance and its Electric-Global Modular Platform for efficiency to produce these long driving ranges.”
IONIQ 6’s drag coefficient of 0.22 is assisted by a low nose, active air flaps, wheel gap reducers, elliptical wing-inspired spoiler with winglet, slight boattail structure, separation traps on both sides of the rear bumper, full underbody cover, deflectors, and reduced wheel-arch gaps.
