This Weird Hyundai Ioniq 6S Is The Love Child of Weird Collaboration

This stunning rendering gives an idea of how the Hyundai IONIQ 6 sedan would look like

Tesla is no longer the sole EV carmaker, as more and more companies are churning out high-performance models, powered purely by electricity. The IONIQ 5 is Hyundai’s latest contender and features powertrains ranging from modest 170 to a respectable 325 horsepower. And while the CUV features a hatchback design, an Italian graphic designer has introduced a sedan version of it.

The Italian graphic designer, who goes by the moniker kdesignag has drawn up an interesting proposal for a performance-oriented sedan version called the Hyundai IONIQ 6S. The pixel artist does not hide the fact (because it’s impossible) that the rendering is based on a Mercedes CLA.

With that being said, the designer has kept the IONIQ 5-specific design elements on the side, even down to the wheel design. The only new thing here is the new side skirt, which seems lower than on the IONIQ 5. While the front end still features the thin strip, incorporating the same headlight design, the fascia is now more prominent and has a sharper center point, into which the design elements converge.

More interesting is the lower front fascia, which is basically the CLA 45 AMG. An interesting decision, given that IONIQ aims to be an EV-only brand, under Hyundai’s banner. In addition to aiming to be a separate brand, the IONIQ name will be featured on two more upcoming models. A sedan version called the IONIQ 6 and an SUV called IONIQ 7.

Just like Genesis – Hyundai’s luxury arm, IONIQ aims to be Hyundai’s EV brand, by 2040. As for the rendering, the CLA base does not mean that the IONIQ 6 will be in the same segment. The IONIQ 5 CUV actually has a longer wheelbase than the Tesla Model 3 118.1 inches (3,000 mm) versus 113.2 inches (2,875 mm).

With that said, we expect the IONIQ 6 to, at least, share a platform with the IONIQ 5. However, given the trend for a unified brand design, we think the IONIQ 6 sedan will feature similar styling as the IONIQ 5. We just have to wait for Hyundai to make it.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
