As far as electric vehicles (EVs) go, few are as anticipated as Hyundai’s Ioniq 6 sedan.
While hands-ons with the EV and other details surrounding the car have been available online for months — including the fact that it’s the company’s second vehicle built on its well-reviewed Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) — its actual cost in Canada has been unknown until now.
Below is the pricing for each Ioniq 6 model in Canada:
- Preferred RWD Long Range (18-inch wheels) (581km range): $54,999
- Preferred AWD long Range (18-inch wheels) (509km range): $57,999
- Preferred AWD Long Range Ultimate Pkg (20-inch wheels) (435km range): $63,999
- Freight and PDI: $1,925
It’s worth mentioning that the Ioniq 6’s price ensures all models qualify for the Federal EV incentive and several Provincial EV rebates.
This cost also places the Ioniq 6 at roughly $3,347 above the MRSP for the base-level Ioniq 5 (the 2023 Ioniq 5 costs $51,652). That said, some Hyundai dealers charge a premium for the Ioniq 5 when they have the vehicle in stock, given there’s a wait time of two years and above for most orders.
On that note, it’s not surprising Hyundai hasn’t revealed a specific release date for the Ioniq 6 since the Ioniq 5 is already difficult to find in Canada. However, with the pricing now revealed, the EV’s official release is likely just a few months away.
It’s unclear what specific features each version of the car will offer, but everything below is available across all Ioniq 6 models (the feature list is very similar to the Ioniq 5’s):
- 800-volt, 350 kW ultra-fast charging
- Battery pre-heater, charge prep

- Centre console mounted dual USB charging (Type-C)
- Dual rear USB (Type-C) charging

While the Ioniq 6’s aesthetic is unique, it’s difficult not to be disappointed that Hyundai ditched the more blocky aesthetic of the Ioniq 5 for a Tesla-like rounded look (in this sense, the design reminds me of the Kia EV 6). That said, the inside of the car seems to have a lot in common with the Ioniq 5, including its 12.3-inch screen, recognizable wheel and sizable centre console.
