Electric Hyundai Ioniq 6 looks set for a Bastille Day debut

Hyundai’s next electric car, the Ioniq 6, looks set to debut on July 14 as the production take on the Ioniq Prophecy Concept.

Just a few days ago, Hyundai delivered the first tease for its next electric car, the Ioniq 6, delivering a video of stuff with slippery shapes to emphasize the aerodynamics of the ‘6’ – dubbing it an ‘Electric Streamliner’. So it seemed likely a debut was getting close.

Now, according to the usually well-informed Korean Car Blog, Hyundai will be taking the wraps off the Ioniq 6 on July 14 at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea.

It’s a delayed debut for the new Ioniq model after its original debut was pushed back to make the Ioniq 6 more like the Prophecy Concept, and to increase its range. That done, the Ioniq 6 is now ready to bow in.

The Ioniq 6 sits on the same E-GMP Platform as the Ioniq 5 and will come with a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive powertrain good for around 300bhp powered by a 77.4kWh battery and range of over 300 miles.

The report that the Ioniq 6 will debut on July 14 in Korea seems to put the kybosh on the rumor that it would make its first appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​this month. Although that’s not to say a camouflaged version isn’t going to make an appearance.

Either way, Hyundai’s first electric ‘saloon’ is just around the corner.
