Hyundai received over 37,000 orders for the new electric model Ioniq 6 in just 24 hours

The new Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric model is already being announced as a “best-seller” in all markets where it will be sold. The Asian manufacturer announced that in just 24 hours, more than 37,000 pre-orders for the zero-emission vehicle were received in South Korea alone.

The total is an absolute record for the Korean automaker. The company says the popularity of the Ioniq 6 shows Korean consumers that the new car will become a very important model in the electric vehicle market.

The new Hyundai Ioniq 6 was foreshadowed by the Prophecy concept of 2020. The production version was revealed at the end of June. The launch of the model and the start of production were delayed by about three months because some exterior and interior details were changed at the express request of CEO Chung Eui-sun.

The standard battery has a capacity of 53 kWh, while the top of the range uses a 77.4 kWh battery, just like the Ioniq 5. However, the maximum range will exceed 610 kilometers in the WLTP cycle.

The new Ioniq 6 will be available in versions with one and two electric motors. The latter will offer around 300 hp and all-wheel drive. The E-GMP EV architecture has a charging infrastructure at 800 volts.

Pre-orders have already opened in the South Korean market, and the numbers have exceeded all expectations of Hyundai officials. Koreans received 37,446 orders for the electric model in the first 24 hours, which is a new record for the company.

Comparatively, in February 2021, the Ioniq 5 recorded 23,760 pre-orders in the first 24 hours after listings opened. For its part, the Kia EV6 received just over 21,000 pre-orders.

It is expected that once the company opens its order lists in Europe and the US, sales figures will hit new records. Customers will have to move very quickly if they want to receive the car by the end of 2023.

Prices for the new Hyundai Ioniq 6 in South Korea start from the equivalent of around 39,000 euros. The first deliveries are scheduled during September. In international markets this will happen in 2023. Production will most likely start in January next year.
