Hyundai refreshes Ioniq 6 range for 2024: new more affordable base model and TECHNIQ trim gone

    Hyundai Australia has refreshed their 2024 Ioniq 6 line up and the changes are in many ways similar to their recent refresh of the Ioniq 5 lineup for 2024.

    The new Ioniq 6 line up for 2024:

    • Now features a heat pump, battery heating system and battery conditioning functionality as standard. These features are mostly useful for Canberrans, Victorians and Tasmanians during cold weather,
    • Has a new Standard range 53kWh battery model with 429km of WLTP range. This is 45km more than the $1000 cheaper new Ioniq 5 base model,
    • DYNAMIQ and EPIQ spec levels now give customers the choice of RWD or AWD powertrain. The 2023 TECHNIQ spec level is gone. DYNAMIQ now features 20-inch alloy wheels,
    • Now has Digital Side Mirrors as an optional extra for EPIQ grade rather than standard. This is great because Digital Side Mirrors are an unwanted technology solution fixing a problem that doesn’t exist. I have several reasons for saying that detailed in another article,
    • Changes the Vehicle To Load (V2L) outside adapter from being a standard inclusion to being an accessory, with V2L Inside continuing as standard across the range.  I think removing the V2L adaptor from being a standard inclusion is a mistake as V2L is a clear point of difference from Tesla.


    2024 IONIQ 6 will be available in three spec levels:

    • IONIQ 6 RWD – Standard Range or Extended Range battery
    • DYNAMIQ and EPIQ – RWD or AWD powertrain, both with Extended Range battery


    Battery conditioning system

    2024 IONIQ 6’s standard battery conditioning system can activate in cold climate conditions to heat the battery for improved DC charging and driving performance. Battery conditioning can also pre-heat the battery in preparation for fast charging when a DC charger is set as a destination in the navigation.

    Heat pump

    Cabin heating is handled by a high-efficiency heat pump system, which takes the place of a conventional electric heater. The heat pump utilises waste heat energy from other systems, as well as energy from the atmosphere, to warm the cabin in an advanced reverse cycle air-conditioning system. Energy saved by utilising the heat pump serves to extend driving range.

    Powertrain summary

    2024 IONIQ 6’s Standard Range battery option maintains the ultra-fast charging benefits of the 800V E-GMP architecture, to allow a charge from 10-80% in as little as 18 minutes when connected to a 350kW charger.
