Hyundai Motor America has officially revealed the pricing for its 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 offering in the country.
The entire range consists of the choice of either the 53kWh battery pack or the bigger 77.4kWh unit for the long-range models as well as the options of either the rear electric motor or dual electric motor layouts.
The most affordable side for the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV is the SE Standard Range priced from $41,600 (around RM184,475) and this is fitted with the 53kWh battery pack and rear electric motor combination. The SE Long Range variant still runs the rear electric motor-only combo, but the bigger 74kWh battery unit kicks the price up to $45,500 (around RM201,805).
For those who prefer the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV with a bigger kick, the dual-motor variants are priced from $49,000 (around RM217,339). Paired to the 74kWh battery pack, the range can go up to 508km - a tad shorter the same battery pack is mated to the single rear electric motor unit, which can go up to 580km (EPA-rated).
Hyundai Malaysia has already teased the future arrival of its new models for 2023. The Hyundai Ioniq 6 EV was briefly shown alongside the new Creta, Santa Fe, and Palisade together with the message, "Coming Soon".
As for pricing, you can expect the Ioniq 6 to be slightly north of the current Ioniq 5 here in Malaysia, which can be purchased from RM207k to RM270k. It's not the cheapest out of the whole EV bunch in the country, but it sure is one of the most exciting offerings yet.
Sep is a firm believer in the saying "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast" rather than "When in doubt, throttle it out". Drive safely, ride defensively, and most importantly, don't get hangry.
