The electric vehicle discount war is making its way to Australia with Hyundai offering up to $10,500 in free upgrades on its 2023 Ioniq 6 electric sedan. This offer is available for orders placed between Black Friday (24/11/23) to Cyber Monday (27/11/23).
The deals include the following:
- Valued at $10,500 - an upgrade from the 2023 Ioniq 6 Dynamiq RWD ($71,500) to the Techniq AWD variant ($82,000) - adding more power, all-wheel drive, and additional features.
- Valued at $5,288 - an upgrade from the 2023 Ioniq 6 Techniq AWD ($82,000) to the top-of-the-range Epiq AWD variant ($87,288). This brings high tech features such as Digital Side Mirrors and more advanced battery conditioning system.
Hyundai has confirmed that around 600 Ioniq 6 vehicles are available for the sale and will only apply to 2023 model year (MY) vehicles.
The Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric sedan is the South Korean carmaker’s answer to the popular Tesla Model 3 and Polestar 2.
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 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.
