The fate of the original Hyundai Ionic has now been sealed, with the company focusing on the upcoming Ioniq 6.
As part of this effort, Hyundai has launched a new teaser campaign saying that the model will be an “electrified streamliner” with a “simple but sensitive” design that will become a “silhouette of the new age”.
Unfortunately, Hyundai doesn’t show much because the car doesn’t look like much and the automaker only shows an aerodynamic shape that looks like a sculpture by the wind. Of course, the car is not a secret because it was foreshadowed by predictable concepts and spied on numerous occasions.

Although the prototypes have been heavily camouflaged, Hyundai is not joking about the smooth shape as the Ioniq 6 will have a curvaceous bumper and headlights on the front, inspired by the idea. Other notable highlights will include a parabolic shoulder line, a greenhouse-like four-door coupe and a sensitive rear edge with pixel-style taillights.
The stylish design of the cabin will continue as an earlier video revealed that the model will have a two-tone interior with a floating center console and spacious rear seats. We can expect a digital instrument cluster and a widescreen infotainment system as well as a ribbed door panel with a floating armrest.
We’ll find out more when the Ioniq 6 launches later this year, but the company has already revealed that the sonata-sized EV will ride on the E-GMP platform and will feature a 73 kWh battery pack as well as two different powertrains. The first has a single electric motor producing 215 hp (160 kW / 218 PS), while the second has a dual-motor system with a combined output of 308 hp (230 kW / 313 PS). The Ioniq 6 also aims to exceed 300 miles (483 km).
