Hyundai is using the Ioniq moniker for quite a few years now. But, until recently, it was only used for one model. Now, Ioniq has become Hyundai’s sub-electric brand and the plan is to include a total of 23 electric models by 2025. While the first model launched under this new nomenclature was the Ioniq 5, the next few months will also see the launch of the Ioniq 6. The model has been caught playing in the snow before, and today, it is out for some more testing on the German roads.

As you can see, the new spy shots are a lot more revealing than before and they show that the electric sedan has been updated during the development process. It now shows not only a new rear bumper with vertically arranged reflectors for the rear fog light, but also the light for the reverse gear.

The next Ioniq 6 will have a design inspired by the Prophecy concept launched back in 2020. Of course, it will not be as wild as the concept, but, you should expect it to be adapted for road usage. For example, the cameras in the concept were replaced by regular mirrors, while the roofline has been raised to offer more interior room.

The interior, on the other hand, will have nothing in common with the concept, but it should be similar to the Ioniq 5.

As for the powertrain, it will be borrowed from the Ioniq 5. The latter is offered with two different battery packs – 58 kWh and 72.6 kWh and a single- or dual-motor setup.

The new Ioniq 6 is expected to be launched in early 2023 and it should be around $10k more expensive than the Ioniq 5.
