 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Achieves Target Of Up To 361-Mile EPA Range

Hyundai brags that the Ioniq 6 has the lowest drag coefficient among its entire model range, with 0.22 cd. This was achieved thanks to its sleek shape and clever solutions including the active flaps on the bumper intake, the wheel gap reducers, the low-drag alloy wheels, the underbody cover, the double rear spoiler, and other aero-friendly components around the bodywork. The Korean-spec model is slightly more aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of 0.21 cd thanks to the mirror-replacing cameras that are currently not permitted in the US market.

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 will reach US dealerships this spring with pricing set to be announced closer to that date.
