Hyundai launches its Ioniq 6 in France, at the same price as the Tesla Model 3, but with a meager stock

The 250 copies of the Ioniq 6 reserved by Hyundai for France are sold out in less than 24 hours. A total of 2,500 copies were sold across Europe in less than a day.

Article updated on November 16, 2022 : If you are looking for a Hyundai Ioniq 6, you will have to be patient. All the copies intended for France for this first edition (250 in total) found takers in less than 24 hours. And the European stock is also at zero, while the Korean brand had planned 2,500 copies for the Old Continent.

This is not abnormal, and do not worry: Hyundai plans to market other copies in the coming months, from 2023, with more options and versions this time. Enough to have a model with a range of more than 600 km.

Original article from November 9, 2022 : Hyundai has just launched pre-orders of the Hyundai Ioniq 6 in France. The new electric car from the Korean manufacturer is finally available, but beware, since only 250 copies are reserved in France for these pre-orders. The note is salty, from 62,500 euros.

Pre-orders for the Hyundai Ioniq 6 in France have just started. As expected, there will only be 250 copies available for France. At European level, 2,500 examples of the electric car are in use.

Same price as a Tesla Model 3

This launch is also an opportunity to know the price of the new Korean room. It is quite close to the leaks we had across the Channel. It is thus a question of 62,500 euros for this Hyundai IONIQ 6 77 kWh HTRAC First Edition (SE). Too bad, because the ecological bonus of 2,000 euros is not available for electric cars sold for more than 60,000 euros.

Unless you succeed in negotiating with the dealer… Which is still possible even if Hyundai specifies that the price is “indicating, taking into account the maximum recommended price to the Authorized Distributor and any discounts linked to the commercial policy of the brand“. And with only 250 copies available, we imagine that the room for maneuver will be limited.

Many options and a good autonomy

For this price, there are many options, such as matrix LED headlights, 360° view for maneuvers, level 2 autonomous driving, head-up display, sunroof, heated seats, Bose speakers, etc.

As a reminder, the technical sheet announces a range of 519 km thanks to the battery with a capacity of 77.4 kWh, with a quick charge in just 18 minutes (on 800 volt terminals) with a peak power of 239 kW. The combined consumption on the WLTP cycle is announced at 16.9 kWh / 100 km. We can’t wait to see the versions that promise more than 600 km of autonomy, surely with rims much smaller than the 20 inches of this first edition.

The power is there, with 325 horsepower and a torque of 605 Nm on the four-wheel drive, making it possible to shoot down the 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds before reaching the maximum speed of 185 km/h. h.

Delivered from spring 2023

Deliveries of this first edition should take place between March and April 2023. From 2023, Hyundai will also open orders for the other editions, which we hope will be more affordable. This will also make it possible to offer more volumes than the 250 units reserved for this first edition.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 vs. Tesla Model 3

Faced with the competition, we can cite the Tesla Model 3 Grande Autonomie, sold for 62,490 euros, or only 10 euros less than this Ioniq 6. For the price, we certainly have fewer options and a slower charge, but a better autonomy (between 602 and 626 km depending on rim size) and therefore lower WLTP consumption (16 kWh / 100 km) and even higher performance. And above all, full access to the network of Superchargers.

Remember also that the Hyudai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 still encounter problems for charging on Tesla terminals, Superchargers v2. For its part, the Korean manufacturer offers the Ionity Premium subscription free for one year. What save a hundred euros.
