Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has announced the expansion of the Hyundai Ioniq 6 lineup in Malaysia, introducing two new variants: the Lite and Plus.
The Ioniq 6 range in Malaysia now starts at RM 219,888 for the Lite RWD, and RM 249,888 for the Plus RWD, complementing the existing Max variants.
Here a quick overview of the Hyundai Ioniq 6's range in Malaysia:
Ioniq 6 Lite RWD - RM 219,888
Ioniq 6 Plus RWD - RM 249,888
Ioniq 6 Max RWD - RM 289,888
Ioniq 6 Max AWD - RM 319,888
Exterior wise, both the Lite and Plus variants look identical to the Max RWD variant. The differences are what you can’t see, like the single-motor rear-wheel drive (RWD) configuration with 151 PS / 350 Nm. Both Lite and Plus variants can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.8 seconds.
Power is supplied by a 53 kWh battery that allows up to 429 km range on the WLTP cycle for both Lite and Plus variants. Thanks to their shared 800-volt architecture with the Max variants, maximum DC charging rate is up to 350 kW, while AC charging is rated at 11 kW.
Both variants also feature Vehicle-to-Load (V2L), dual-widescreen displays measuring 12.3-inch, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, 64-colour ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, and power tailgate just to name a few.
The Lite variant gets manually adjusted fabric seats and a 6-speaker audio system instead of the Bose system found in the rest of the lineup. Head-up display is also absent for both Lite and Plus variants.
Standard safety features for all variants include seven airbags with a front-centre airbag, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
The Lite and Plus variants are available in the same five body colours as the Max variants: Abyss Black Pearl, Nocturne Grey Matte, Biophilic Blue Pearl, Dive Blue Solid, and Gravity Gold Matte.
The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 comes with an 8-year/160,000 km battery warranty, while the standard vehicle warranty is 2-year/50,000 km. Customers have the option to upgrade the standard vehicle warranty to five years/100,000 km for an additional RM 10,000, which also includes three years/50,000 km of free service.
Additionally, the first 30 owners will receive a complimentary one-year Shell Recharge Gold membership upon vehicle delivery.
Bookings for the Ioniq 6 can be made at any authorised Hyundai sales outlet nationwide or through the online booking platform. Deliveries of the Ioniq 6 Lite and Plus are scheduled to commence in the Q4 of this year.
The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
