It has already been more than a year since the Hyundai Ioniq 5 was officially unveiled to the general public, a few weeks before its technical cousin, the Kia EV6. First model of the new range created by the Korean firm, the electric crossover should not remain alone for long in the catalog. Indeed, it’s been some time that we talk about the arrival of a larger model, called Ioniq 6 and which should take the form of a sedan. If Hyundai had not yet communicated about it, it is now done while the brand has just unveiled a first teaser most likely announcing an impending reveal.

Another variant N, sharing its characteristics with the future Kia EV6 GT and its 585 horsepower, could see the light of day. Its aerodynamics could allow greater efficiency and autonomy than its cousins.
