Power Options
The 2023 Hyundai IONIQ6 is available with three powertrain options. The RWD Standard Range gets a 53-kWh battery that supplies juice to a single 149-horsepower electric motor. Rear-wheel-drive versions with the larger 77.4-kWh battery get a 225-horsepower motor, and the dual-motor variants use the same battery pack and generate a total of 320 horsepower. According to Hyundai, the dual-motor IONIQ6 will sprint to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds — an accurate figure based on our experience with the car. The dual-motor version can also disconnect the front motor when not needed, providing as much as a six percent increase in range.
