- Hyundai Motor Company this week revealed the Hyundai IONIQ 6, the second model in its IONIQ dedicated all-electric-vehicle line-up brand. IONIQ 6, which Hyundai describes as an Electrified Streamliner, is aerodynamically sculpted and makes innovative use of sustainable materials to reflect today’s EV customers’ values.
Inspired by Hyundai’s Prophecy EV Concept, IONIQ 6 is characterised by clean, simple lines and a pure aerodynamic form that Hyundai designers describe as ‘Emotional Efficiency’.
Like the IONIQ 5 before it, IONIQ 6 implements the Hyundai Look design strategy that gives each model a unique appearance, like chess pieces. By taking a customer-centric direction, Hyundai designs with diverse lifestyles in mind rather than with a one-style-fits-all approach.
The IONIQ 6 world premiere will take place in July, when Hyundai will reveal the full specifications, including the electrified streamliner’s features and advanced technologies.
- Citroen has revealed the all-electric New Citroen e-C4 X. Following in the footsteps of the New Citroen C5 X, the design of New e-C4 X offers customers a cross-segment design that combines the silhouette of a fastback with the modern attitude of an SUV, whilst maintaining the refinement and spaciousness of a four-door model.
With a 100kW powertrain, the New e-C4 X is capable of a range up to 223 miles (WLTP), whilst allowing drivers to benefit from comfort and saloon car spaciousness, with a 510-litre boot.
Vincent Cobée, Citroen Global CEO, said: “Many customers have told us they want an affordable, responsible and elegant alternative to the mass of hatchback and SUV offerings in the volume compact car segment, and this is our best interpretation of that need – a forward-looking, distinctive cross design that delivers all the comfort, technology, safety and value you expect from Citroen, but also outstanding roominess and limousine versatility, with the benefit of zero-emission, all-electric power”.
The 100kW full-electric drivetrain produces 136hp and 260Nm of torque and can reach a 0-62 mph time of 9.5-seconds in Sport mode and a top speed of 93.
This latest Citroen model will be launched in selected markets with petrol, Diesel and battery-electric powertrains. In the UK, customers will be able to order the all-electric New Citroën ë-C4 X early in 2023.
