Hyundai is positioning itself as one of the leaders in electric vehicle manufacturing, adding another EV to its lineup with the Ioniq 6. Sharing a platform with the Genesis GV60, Kia EV6, and Hyundai Ioniq 5, we share our first impressions of this all-electric sedan, including its unique styling, EV performance, driving dynamics, range, and how it stacks up to competitors like Tesla Model 3 and BMW i4. We also discuss whether a flat tire sealant kit is an acceptable and safe alternative to run-flat tires or a dedicated spare.
