The electric sports sedan can charge at up to 10.5kW AC and 350kW DC speeds using a more advanced 800-volt class architecture. Hyundai claims using a compatible public EV station, it can rapid charge from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes via its Type 2/CCS2 port.

Vehicle-to-load (V2L) capability is also standard on all variants using a three-pin plug underneath the rear row seats or included Type 2 adapter for use on the outside.

Compared to the related Hyundai Ioniq 5 crossover, it’s between $2000 to $4000 more expensive depending on the variant. But, while it utilises the same 74kWh usable battery pack, the Ioniq 6’s lower 0.21 aerodynamic drag coefficient enables it to provide 65 to 107km more driving range.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric car rivals the Tesla Model 3 sedan, Polestar 2 liftback, and is priced in line with the Kia EV6 crossover. It’s also seen as a more affordable alternative to the six-figure Porche Taycan.
