Hyundai Ioniq 6 pricing and models
There are three models in the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 line-up; the $74,000 Dynamiq, the $83,500 Techniq and the $88,000 Epiq flagship. All prices are before on-road costs.
That pricing means the Hyundai Ioniq 6 starts about $10,000 more than the Tesla Model 3 sedan. That’s disappointing because in many ways it compares well with the market leader.
Unlike the Tesla, the Ioniq 6 is also in limited supply in Australia with just 1300 headed our way in 2023.
Its pricing means the Hyundai Ioniq 6 misses out on all state-based electric vehicle rebates and the Epiq is too expensive to qualify for the federal government’s new FBT exemption.
The Dynamiq has only a single e-motor powering the rear wheels, while the Techniq and Epiq have an e-motor sitting on each axle to provide more power, torque, performance and all-wheel drive.
All Hyundai Ioniq 6 models get dual-zone climate control, powered front seats with heating, eco-leather trimmings, dual digital screens for infotainment and instrumentation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connection (but only via cable not wireless) and wireless smartphone charging.
There are also some new features here. The Ioniq 6 is the first Hyundai to be capable of over-the-air (OTA) upgrades or fixes, which means not having to go to a workshop and plug your car in for navigation refreshes or other improvements, updating the car much like a smartphone or tablet.
It’s also the first Hyundai EV to have the Bluelink connected car system and smartphone app that allows you – among many other things - to start your car and its climate system remotely, find it in a crowded car park and even take snapshots of the vehicle surrounds via the 360-degree camera.
New two-colour ambient interior lighting can be adjusted through six themes to reflect your mood and can change intensity as road speed varies.
Move up through the range and there are more features added. Both AWD models swap from 18-inch to 20-inch tyres and from eco rubber to Pirelli P Zeros, gain a full width powered sunroof and better front seats with ventilation.
The Epiq alone adds digital side mirrors that display imagery on screens tucked into either end of the dashboard, a heat pump for more efficient cabin climate control and battery conditioning for faster DC charging.
The only option is matte paint for $1000. There’s no spare tyre only a mobility kit. Nor do you get a charging or wallbox included in the deal, which seems a bit of a miss at these prices.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty and an eight-year/160,00km high-voltage battery warranty.
Service intervals are every 24 months and 30,000km, reflecting the reduced maintenance requirements EVs need compared to petrol or diesel vehicles. The scheduled service charge for each of the first two visits is $560.
