Hyundai prices up Ioniq 6 saloon

Hyundai prices up Ioniq 6 saloon

UK buyers can now configure the Hyundai Ioniq 6 saloon on the brand’s website, with two drivetrains and two trim options to choose from.

Set to challenge the likes of the BMW i4, Polestar 2 and Tesla Model 3, the new Hyundai Ioniq 6 is already proving to be quite popular in Europe – its manufacturer reporting that all limited-run First Edition variants were reserved within 24 hours of the trims unveiling back in October.

Following this sales success, Hyundai has now released the UK pricing and specifications list for the upcoming saloon range, with prices starting south of £47k. By comparison, pricing for the First Edition models started at £55k.

228hp rear-wheel drive drivetrain 325hp all-wheel drive drivetrain
Premium trim £46,745 £50,245
Ultimate trim £50,245 £53,745

The manufacturer reported earlier this year that the Ioniq 6 will be offered with either an entry-level 58kWh or a more powerful 77kWh battery, like the Ioniq 5 hatchback currently on sale. However, Hyundai now says that all saloon models will use the larger 77kWh option.

There are two drivetrain configurations to choose from – a 228hp rear-wheel drive layout, and a more expensive 325hp all-wheel drive version. Either configuration can be selected with the two trim levels on offer – the entry-level ‘Premium’ and range-topping ‘Ultimate’ trim.
