Hyundai is aiming to compete with the Tesla Model 3 with its upcoming EV sedan model called the Ioniq 6. This four-door will fit into the company’s Ioniq sub brand made up of electric vehicles and shares components with the taller and boxier Ioniq 5. This means single- and dual-motor configurations will be offered, with two battery-pack options. The larger pack, in combination with the aerodynamic shape, means the 6 could possibly provide up to 400 miles of range in certain configurations. Its styling is inspired by Hyundai’s dramatic Prophecy concept, and the Ioniq 6 looks to be futuristic, stylish, and quick while offering a more luxurious interior and additional tech features compared with Hyundai’s gas-powered Sonata and Elantra sedans.

How much will this cost? Hyundai hasn’t confirmed any prices for the new Ioniq 6; however, it has similar battery options to the Ioniq 5 it should end up costing around the same.

You’ll probably be able to get a single-motor car with a 53kWh battery for around £40,000 when it goes on sale later this year or in early 2023. Top-spec cars with a 77kWh battery and dual motors will probably set you back close to £50,000.
