Introducing the IONIQ 6 First Edition

October 26, 2022

Hyundai has announced pricing and specification of the IONIQ 6 First Edition, the first model in the eagerly anticipated IONIQ 6 range and the second model of the IONIQ all-electric-vehicle line-up brand.

Hyundai IONIQ 6 First Edition

Built on Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), IONIQ 6 is equipped with an array of advanced technologies and a customer-centric, spacious interior. In addition, it provides the First Edition with an extended range of up to 320 miles on a single charge (WLTP-combined).

That range is aided by an ultra-low drag coefficient of just 0.21, assisted by its low-sitting front surface, active air flaps at the front and wheel gap reducers.

Priced at £54,995, the limited volume IONIQ 6 First Edition takes the stylish appearance of Hyundai’s Electrified Streamliner to the next level with a range of exclusive exterior and interior design elements. On the outside, the model’s 20-inch wheels feature an eye-catching matte black finish. Meanwhile, glossy black mouldings on the front, rear and side as well as glossy black Mirror Caps emphasise IONIQ 6 First Edition’s sleek look.

Inside, customers can enjoy a selection of design flourishes unique to IONIQ 6 First Edition, including a black interior with a black headliner. In addition, exclusive leather combination seats feature Grey Tartan fabric inspired by Hyundai’s Prophecy EV concept. The model is also equipped with dedicated First Edition floor mats with Grey Tartan highlights.

Customers can select from four exterior body colours called Biophilic Blue Pearl, Serenity White Pearl, Nocturne Grey Metallic and Gravity Gold Matte. The IONIQ 6 is also the first Hyundai model to introduce the new design of the ‘H’ emblem, finished in black aluminium on the First Edition.

The IONIQ 6 will be available in two other trim levels, Premium and Ultimate with pricing and specification to be announced soon.

IONIQ 6 is the second Hyundai model to be built on the groups E-GMP platform, with the First Edition using a 77.4 kWh battery with all-wheel drive powertrain to provide 325PS of power and 605Nm of torque.

The E-GMP platform’s 800v charging system with 350kW ultra-fast charger compatibility also includes a battery heating system, assuring optimised charge times in all conditions.

On top of this, customers will be able to enjoy a free one-year subscription to IONITY Premium package, through Hyundai’s pan-European integrated public charging service Charge myHyundai. Charge myHyundai offers access to over 400,000 charging points across Europe, including AC and DC connectors.

Ashley Andrew, managing director, Hyundai Motor UK said “IONIQ 6 has already received an overwhelmingly positive response from customers and media alike with its combination of streamliner styling and long-distance EV performance. The IONIQ 6 First Edition presents customers with not only a unique specification but also an opportunity to secure one of the very first vehicles to reach the UK.”

Customers are invited to register for the IONIQ 6 First Edition launch event at www.hyundaiexperience.com/ioniq6event. This online exclusive event takes place on November 9 at 9am, after which customers will be able to complete their reservation request form.
