The all-electric sedan and SUV range-mates will launch in 2022 and 2024 respectively, according to a new report.
The Ioniq 6 mid-size sedan (shown below in Prophecy concept guise) will arrive in late 2022, underpinned by Hyundai, Kia and Genesis’ modular E-GMP platform.
Two powertrain configurations will reportedly be available, with an entry-level single-motor variant sending 160kW to the rear wheels and a flagship all-wheel-drive variant offering 230kW – with both drivetrains offered in the related Ioniq 5 medium SUV.
Energy will be drawn from a 73kWh lithium-ion battery pack, permitting a “targeted range” in excess of 480km (300 miles).
Meanwhile, the Hyundai Ioniq 7 full-size SUV (rendered at bottom by Korean artist NYMammoth) will launch in early 2024, as a large SUV sized similarly to the Palisade, with six- and seven-seat configurations claimed to be on offer.
The option of rear- and all-wheel drive layouts will also be available, likely offering the same or similar power figures as its smaller stablemate. Targeted range will also be comparable to that of the Ioniq 6, this time coming via a 100kWh lithium-ion battery pack to account for the SUV’s increased heft.
The Ioniq 5 mid-size SUV was revealed earlier this year, with first local deliveries slated for the third quarter of 2021 (July to September inclusive). Pricing is expected to start in the mid-$60,000 range.
A spokesperson for Hyundai Australia told CarAdvice the Ioniq 6 and Ioniq 7 would both be offered for the local market, however was unable to provide further details for the vehicles. This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
