The Hyundai Ioniq 6 has its official EPA-estimated range, and Hyundai came in over the range they estimated when they launched the vehicle. The most efficient version of the vehicle delivers 581 km of range with 140 MPGe in terms of consumption.

Below you will find the various trims and powertrains and their associated ratings.

Trim Range Consumption
Ioniq 6 SE RWD Long Range (18-inch wheels) 361 miles (581 km) 140 MPGe
Ioniq 6 SE AWD Long Range (18-inch wheels) 316 miles (508 km) 121 MPGe
Ioniq 6 SEL RWD (20-inch wheels) 305 miles (491 km) 117 MPGe
Ioniq 6 SEL AWD (20-inch wheels)  270 miles (434 km) 103 MPGe
Ioniq 6 Limited RWD (20-inch wheels) 305 miles (491 km) 117 MPGe
Ioniq 6 Limited AWD (20-inch wheels) 270 miles (434 km) 103 MPGe

Hyundai also got a positive range rating in Europe with a range of up to 614 km or 382 miles, but that is based on the more generous WLTP rating schedule.

According to Hyundai, part of the reason for this great result is the drag coefficient of 0.22 for their European and North American models. The South Korean version is even sleeker, with a drag coefficient of 0.21.

This is excellent news for Hyundai, which is looking for the Ioniq 6 to deliver in the North American and European markets. In addition to the EPA ratings, Hyundai confirmed that the Ioniq 6 would be available in the spring in the United States. Hyundai did not confirm when the Ioniq 6 would arrive in Canada in the announcement.
