Hyundai looks to have another winner on its hands after confirming that all 2,500 launch First Edition models were snapped up by eager buyers in under 24 hours. The Korean brand opened online orders for the new model on 9 November, inviting British, German, Dutch, French and Norwegian buyers to secure their build slot.
Those lucky enough to secure a £54,995 First Edition will be the first to take delivery of Hyundai’s striking ‘streamliner’ stablemate to the IONIQ 5. The brand is launching the 6 in the same way it did with the 5 (with a limited edition model) and is expected to announce details and prices for the standard Premium and Ultimate models shortly. According to Hyundai, First Edition models will be delivered to customers between March and April next year, with standard models likely to follow in May.
The IONIQ 6 First Edition features a 77.4kWh battery with all-wheel drive powertrain to provide 320bhp of power and 605 Nm of torque. Thanks to its streamliner-inspired exterior design (which has a drag coefficient of just 0.21), the IONIQ 6 delivers a WLTP range figure of 320 miles.
