IN 2020 you saw the car, in concept form, the end result of supposedly hundreds of hours of work – this week a sketch that might have lasted a few seconds and was drawn on a napkin.
So goes the pre-launch process for Hyundai’s next big thing in electric vehicles.
The Ioniq 6 sedan is a sister ship to the hugely successful Ioniq 5 hatch, the current holder of New Zealand Car of the Year.
The real thing has been seen, albeit in heavily disguised form, tested and, of course, the muse was a design study called the Prophecy, which came out in 2020.
The actual production car will make its debut July 14 at a motor show in South Korea’s Busan, according to a new report from a website, TheKoreanCarBlog.
It should have been released in March or April, but according to reports there were last minute changes to some of its components. According to another website, Motor1, those overhauls were ordered by the man at the top, none other than Hyundai chairman Chung Eui-sun.
