Long mileage request

According to Motor1, there are several factors that make the Hyundai Ioniq 6 able to travel a very long distance up to 614 km. One of them is the swoopy shape which not only acts as a strength but produces a drag coefficient of up to 0.21. This affects the distance which can be greater.

However, it should be noted that the mileage of up to 614 km is only available in the higher variant, namely the Long Range. This variant is equipped with 2 electric motors and 1 battery with a sufficiently large capacity of 77.4 kWh. In addition, the Long Range variant is equipped with rear-wheel drive and the use of 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Long Range variant is actually also equipped with 20-inch all-wheel drive wheels. However, with the combination of using only one electric motor, the walkable distance actually drops to 545km according to the WLTP test. And for the use of 18-inch alloy wheels with all-wheel drive, the achievable distance is 583 km.

To test the Standard Range variant with rear-wheel drive, a single electric motor and a battery with a capacity of only 53 kWh, the mileage obtained is 429 km. However, according to the WLTP test, there are several indicators that can influence the difference between results and facts on the ground.

One of these is how the driver’s habits in driving and using the gas and brake pedals. In addition, the factors of traffic conditions and the air temperature in different places also affect how the results of this WLTP do not reflect 100% what is achieved in everyday life.

So this WLTP test also shows other technologies of the Hyundai Ioniq 6. One of them is the use of ultra fast charging up to 800 Volts which makes charging from 10 to 80% only take 15 minutes. And with an 80% battery, Hyundai Ioniq 6 still drives 351 km.

Currently in Indonesia, Hyundai is still selling the Ioniq 5 which has even been assembled directly at the Hyundai Indonesia plant. Seeing consumer enthusiasm with the presence of the Ioniq 5, it is not impossible that the Ioniq 6 will soon be launched in Indonesia and even locally assembled or CKD.
