2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 price and specs
- Ioniq 6 EV priced from $74,000
- Three variants, RWD and AWD, one large battery
- Up to 614km driving range, aerodynamic body shape
The sporty Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan is landing in Australia this month, as the South Korean carmaker’s answer to the popular Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2.
Priced from $74,000 to $88,000 before on-road costs, the Ioniq 6 EV provides up to 614km of claimed WLTP driving range with features such as a 12.3-inch infotainment system with over-the-air software update capability, Bluelink internet connectivity and mobile app, and adaptive matrix LED headlights as standard.
The Ioniq 6 EV is eligible for select Australian electric car incentives – but the fringe benefits tax (FBT) exemption for fleets and novated leases only applies to the base Dynamiq model.
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.

Ioniq 6 Spec Comparison
Hyundai Ioniq 6 RWD vs the competition
In terms of size, body style and performance, the closest match to the Ioniq 6 Dynamiq RWD is the Tesla Model 3 RWD and Polestar 2 Long Range Single Motor.
The Ioniq 6 costs about $10,000 more than the Model 3 RWD, but provides an additional 123 km of WLTP range courtesy of the larger battery pack and faster DC charging. Its efficiency trials the Model 3 RWD and is about one second slower from 0 to 100km/h, though it's identical to the current outgoing Polestar 2.
Hyundai Ioniq 6 AWD vs the competition
The closest match to the Ioniq 6 Techniq and Epiq AWD variants is the Tesla Model 3 Long Range.
They're fairly evenly matched across most categories, with the Model 3 just edging the Ioniq 6 in range, efficiency, acceleration and DC charging speed.
