Hyundai has unveiled the very swoopy and sleek design of its upcoming IONIQ 6 sedan.

The car is designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, with a very impressive drag coefficient of just 0.21, and uses a bunch of durable materials in the cabin.

“IONIQ 6 bridges an emotional convergence of functionality and aesthetics,” said SangYup Lee, Executive Vice President and Director of Design Center at Hyundai.

“The distinctive streamlined design is the result of close cooperation between engineers and designers, with obsessive attention to detail and customer-centric values. We created the IONIQ 6 as a conscious cocoon that provides a personalized place for everyone.

Perhaps the most important aspect of the IONIQ 6’s design is its slipper profile. The car’s very low drag coefficient is due to its low nose, active front air vents, wheel gap reducers and optional slim digital side mirrors. Likewise, the car has an elliptical fender-inspired spoiler with fin, a slight boat-tail structure and splitter hatches on both sides of the rear bumper. The IONIQ 6 even features a covered undercarriage with optimized spoilers and reduced wheel arches.

Hyundai says the IONIQ 6 has a “cocoon-like interior” that serves “both a comfortable refuge and a personal space” allowing drivers to “facilitate a mindful and respectful mobility experience and lifestyle. the environment”.

In practice, the car has a modular touchscreen dashboard with a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment screen and another 12-inch digital dashboard. A large center console provides generous storage space in the car.

The two-tone interior mood lighting allows users to choose from 64 colors and six two-tone themes to help all residents feel relaxed and at ease. Interactive 4-point pixel lights on the steering wheel, meanwhile, allow easy communication between driver and vehicle.

The car also receives recycled pigment paint from end-of-life tires and bamboo charcoal pigment paint. Inside, depending on trim level, drivers can get eco-processed leather (seats), recycled PET fabric (seats), bio TPO skin (dashboard), bio PET fabric (headliner roof), organic paint derived from vegetable oils (doors), and recycled fishing net carpet. The fishing net mat is a first for the IONIQ brand, apparently.

The car’s full world premiere will take place next month when Hyundai unveils full specifications.
