The Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan has had its lineup refreshed for the 2024 model-year, with the addition of a new more affordable range opener, the Standard Range RWD, with prices now starting from $65,500 before on-road costs.

Previously, the Ioniq 6 was offered in three grades – the entry-level rear-wheel-drive Dynamiq, the mid-range all-wheel-drive Techniq and the flagship Epiq.

The entry-level is now called the Ioniq 6, the middle-of-the-range Techniq has been replaced by the new Dynamiq and the Epiq remains the premium model.

Pricing across the 2024 Ioniq 6 range is as follows:

The 53kWh battery pack of the new base model offers a claimed driving range of 429km, while the 77.4kWh pack provides up to 614km of claimed WLTP driving range.

Features across the range include 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.
