FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Hyundai Motor North America announced the completion of final testing by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the new all-electric 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 6. The IONIQ 6 SE Long Range RWD trim received an impressive EPA-estimated range of 361 miles, while the IONIQ 6 SE AWD achieved a range of 316 miles.
According to the EPA, the IONIQ 6 SE RWD Long Range achieved a combined MPGe rating of 140, putting it on par with two Lucid Air models that top the 2023 Top Ten Vehicles list on Fueleconomy.gov.
“Our development teams are always working to improve the efficiency of our vehicles,” said Olabisi Boyle, Vice President of Product Planning and Mobility Strategy at Hyundai Motor North America. “Instead of just adding a larger battery, we optimized the IONIQ 6’s aerodynamic performance and its Electric-Global Modular Platform for maximum efficiency, resulting in these impressive driving ranges.”
The IONIQ 6 boasts a number of aerodynamic features, including an ultra-low drag coefficient of 0.22, a low nose, active air flaps, wheel gap reducers, an elliptical wing-inspired spoiler with winglet, a slight boattail structure, separation traps on both sides of the rear bumper, a full underbody cover, deflectors, and reduced wheel-arch gaps. These features contribute to the vehicle’s efficiency and long driving range.
