Hyundai's exclusive brand for electric models: IONIQ
Hyundai Motor Company established a special brand for its battery electric vehicles (BEV) in 2020 and named it IONIQ. The name IONIQ actually appeared with a hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric model launched in 2016. Hyundai has opened a new page as a leader in the era of electric mobility and has become fully branded for its IONIQ product line. Acting in line with the brand's vision of "Progress for Humanity", IONIQ will attract attention with its special solutions for various lifestyles.
This new era, which started with IONIQ 5, will continue with IONIQ 2023 in 6, and in 2024, IONIQ 7, a new SUV model of the brand, will meet with car lovers. The creation of the IONIQ brand is described as a very important move to meet the rapidly growing market demand and also reveals Hyundai's plan to lead the global EV market.
IONIQ 6 is the second Hyundai model based on Hyundai Motor Group's Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). E-GMP serves as a core technology for the brand's new generation BEV series and stands out as an extremely flexible platform to be used in all models.
Designed specifically for BEVs, E-GMP provides several advantages over platforms developed for internal combustion engines.
Among the prominent benefits of the platform are; It features increased development flexibility, strong driving performance, increased driving range, enhanced safety features, seating position and high volume luggage capacities. Most vehicles, including sedans, SUVs and CUVs, can drive the e-GMP, and it also allows for model development, reducing complexity through modularization and standardization.
The E-GMP also offers improved cornering performance and driving stability at high speed. This results in an optimal weight distribution between the front and rear, and tremendous handling thanks to the low-positioned battery. Typically; Thanks to the five-link rear suspension system used for medium and large-sized vehicle segments, driving comfort and handling balance are increased.
The platform ensures battery safety through a battery support structure made of ultra-high-strength steel. Pressed steel components surround this structure for added rigidity. The energy-absorbing parts of the body and chassis aim to absorb the energy effectively during a possible collision, thereby minimizing damage.
V2L vehicle power supply and charger
In addition to its impressive range, the IONIQ 6 has an ideal powertrain for the electrical needs that can be used during activities such as camping or any outdoor recreation. The vehicle power supply, called V2L, operates the car like a giant power bank. With this system, which is activated using an existing accessory adapter, the vehicle instantly provides 220V city electricity. The V2L function can deliver up to 3,6 kW and charge another EV vehicle at the same time.
