- Ioniq 6
What should I be paying?
Hyundai has only announced the price of the most expensive version so far, the £54,995 First Edition. That’s broadly where we expected it to be pitched and if lesser versions start at or beneath £45,000 (lining up neatly with the Ioniq 5), it offers reasonable value for money. And should be pretty affordable to run.
Energy costs are obviously pretty unpalatable at the moment, with no sign of them reducing, but even so charging costs won’t be excessive compared to leasing. Expect to be paying £500-£600 a month, which lines it up neatly with the Polestar 2 (also available with a choice of single- or twin-motors), with prices/monthlies starting at £43,150/£476.
That undercuts the Tesla Model 3, which starts at £48,490, with the Long Range dual motor version another £9,000 on top. BMW’s fine-driving i4, easily the most dynamic car of this quartet, starts at £52,575.
In terms of standard kit, expect the Ioniq 6 to lead the way. The First Edition will come loaded with the full suite of self-driving gizmos, plus Bose sounds, heated front and rear seats, dual zone climate, sunroof, power tailgate, head up display and the V2L ability – so you can discharge the car to power your home/assorted electrics etc.
