Head-to-Head: The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Electrifies the Market, Challenging Tesla’s Reign



Test run: The 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 outshines Tesla's Model 3

Boasting an extended driving distance, enhanced features, an aesthetically pleasing look due to improved styling, and an appealing price point, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 emerges as a more logical choice over the Tesla Model 3.

However, that design does have a cost for those who are above average height; Tesla has improved the quality of its interior materials; and despite being ahead of its time, the vehicle still falls short in some technological refinements seen in Tesla and its rivals.

After spending a week ferrying the">kids across the city and tackling various tasks, I've compiled the advantages and disadvantages of having the 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 6 as a household vehicle.

Advantage: The Ioniq 6 boasts a distinctive design

The Tesla Model 3 might be considered minimalist and unobjectionable at its best, but at its worst, it can come across as dull and">king identity. In contrast, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 has a cool factor that’s hard to ignore, and its design isn’t just for show – it serves a purpose. With superior aerodynamics compared to the Model 3, the Ioniq 6 is among the leaders in low drag coefficients for current production cars. Its design echoes the sleekness of classic cars, with the front resembling the Porsche Panamera and the GM EV1, while the rear suggests the Infiniti J30, completed with a stylish ducktail spoiler. Adding to its unique appeal are the distinctive chiclet LED lights on both the front and back, adding an intricate and visually appealing touch.

Downside: The sleek shape reduces space overhead

The vehicle offers ample space for front passengers of above-average height, but the streamlined aesthetic significantly diminishes the space above the back seats. The steep slope of the back portion of the roof is the culprit here. Standing at 5-foot-10, I find my head barely grazing the ceiling. Those who are 6 feet tall or more will undoubtedly struggle with space, particularly when the car encounters any rough terrain.

Advantage: Hyundai combines practicality and aesthetics

The Ioniq 6 is designed with a streamlined dashboard and low cowl providing excellent sightlines, it boasts a continuous glass panel that houses dual 12.3-inch displays serving as the digital instrument panel and the touchscreen for the infotainment system. The cabin is adorned with an array of pixel-like squares that echo the design of the external lights. Differing from the Model 3, it includes physical buttons, dials, and switches for vital features such as temperature regulation and sound system adjustments.

Negative: Hyundai Ioniq 6 interior elements have inconsistent quality

It's a relief to find no easily marked glossy black plastic in the Ioniq 6's design. The model I reviewed featured a center console encased in a matte plastic that almost had the texture of cement – quite an interesting touch. However, the Ioniq 6 Limited Long Range version I drove, complete with 20-inch wheels, carried a price tag of $55,010. At this cost, the hard plastic used for the dashboard, upper door sections, and other interior details seemed out of place. In comparison, the Tesla Model 3 has recently undergone improvements that have notably enhanced the quality of the interior materials beyond what the Ioniq 6 offers.

Advantage: Ioniq 6 delivers impressive mileage at a value price

The Ioniq 6 boasts an EPA-estimated mileage of up to 361 miles and is priced at $43,600, which includes a destination fee of $1,150. This outperforms the Tesla Model 3 by a significant margin. There is also a standard Ioniq 6 available for $38,050, which is less expensive than the Model 3, but it offers a reduced range of 240 miles. Considering Tesla's calculation method for its official EPA range figures, the Ioniq 6 is more likely to meet or exceed its advertised range in practical use.

The extended-distance version of the Ioniq 6 I drove is rated by the EPA to travel 270 miles on a charge. When the weather was favorable, I observed an average efficiency above 3.0 miles per kilowatt-hour, but during chillier days with temperatures in the 30s, the efficiency fell to about 2.6 or 2.7 miles per kilowatt-hour during varied driving in suburban areas. Although these figures don't quite align with the EPA's rating, they're still in line with expectations.

Drawback: Hyundai's Electric Vehicle Interface

It's perplexing that Hyundai's supposed futuristic vehicle lacks the convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, necessitating the use of an old-fashioned USB-A cable for connectivity.

The mobile application by Hyundai for operating its vehicles is adequate but falls short when compared to the advanced technology of Tesla's app, and it's also not on par with the systems implemented by Rivian and Lucid. Furthermore, the app is outshone by the more refined and responsive software that Ford offers for the Mustang Mach-E. The Hyundai app suffers from sluggish performance, frequent loading times, and a cumbersome process for activating features like pre-heating, making it seem outdated compared to its rivals.

Currently, the Tesla Model 3 may have an edge due to its extensive Supercharging stations and superior application interface, yet these advantages may not last long. The Ioniq 6, with its eye-catching design, impressive mileage, and energy-saving features, all offered at an attractive price point, is definitely worth considering for potential buyers.

I'm sorry

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 emerges as a formidable contender against the Tesla Model 3. California demonstrates how to reduce the cost of domestic EV charging. Additionally, there's a question of whether the design of EV and standard car interiors is detrimental to our health. All this and more is covered at Green Car Reports. In a subsequent test drive of the Hyundai Ioniq 6, the team at Green Car Reports discovered that this electric vehicle holds its own in terms of price and range, potentially outperforming the Tesla Model 3 in real-world conditions. However, the Ioniq 6 still falls short on some aspects. Meanwhile, residential electricity prices have been rising nationwide…

Research has revealed that car seats, particularly in more affordable automobiles, have been found to harbor chemicals that could be dangerous, including substances linked to cancer.

California is contemplating implementing a set fee on electric bills from its major utility companies, which would be offset by a decrease in the expense of charging electric vehicles.

Kia has announced the EV3 will go into production. Meanwhile, Rivian is updating its Illinois facility to manufacture the R2. Electric vehicles are significantly impacting the demand for gasoline. Additionally, we're exploring the minimum size necessary for an EV to be considered substantial. All this and more can be found at Green Car Reports. Rivian is adjusting the manufacturing capabilities at its Normal plant…

Rivian's initial and sole manufacturing facility is set to be reconfigured to enable a yearly output of as many as 215,000 vehicles.

Experts suggest that while electric vehicles (EVs) might see only slight increases in sales this year, the growing total of EVs in circulation is expected to influence gasoline consumption. However, this doesn't necessarily translate to a decrease in gas prices over time.

A compact electric vehicle designed for local travel is set to launch in the U.S. later this year, featuring a speed cap of 25 miles per hour and equipped with an expanded battery pack.

It's possible that this small electric vehicle will be released in the United States, although there's no official announcement yet. It could compete with the likes of the Volvo EX30 and the Mini Countryman.

Battery manufacturing for BMW's electric vehicles is getting established in Mexico. Ram is looking to increase its hydrogen fuel-cell capabilities. Plus, a look into why rural administrations may not prioritize EV charging infrastructure. Stay tuned for these stories and more at Green Car Reports. BMW has initiated the construction of a battery facility in Mexico which will supply additional…

The relevance of planning for electric vehicle charging stations seems to differ between urban and rural areas. About 33% of municipal authorities in Michigan consider it highly pertinent, in contrast to only 10% of officials from townships who share that view

Stellantis has announced intentions to initiate the production of a Ram 5500 heavy-duty truck equipped with a fuel-cell in Mexico, targeting consumers in North America.
