2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 Beats the Tesla Model 3 on Range

The most range you can get currently with a Tesla Model 3 is 356 miles. That’s a few shy of the Ioniq 6’s new 361-mile rating, but there’s a catch. The Ioniq 6 goes its distance with rear-wheel drive paired to a 77.4-kW battery pack, where the Model 3 achieves nearly as much while offering all-wheel drive (and a 82-kWh battery).

According to the EPA’s website, the Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD is rated at 131 MPGe combined and the Ioniq 6 is now rated at 140 MPGe in the SE RWD Long Range configuration. The Ioniq achieves a drag coefficient of 0.22 with its U.S. mirrors, or 0.21 with the Korean-market rear-view cameras. The Tesla Model 3 is just a hair off, with a 0.23 drag coefficient.

While impressive, the difference between the Ioniq 6 and Model 3’s top range estimates is close enough to be within striking distance of an over-the-air update on Tesla’s end to tweak and boost performance, if the automaker feels enough heat to do so and stay competitive on paper. But the automaker may not have much to worry about; the Tesla has a clear advantage if it comes down to wanting all-wheel drive over rear-wheel drive for almost the same range. It will just depend on price, which Hyundai has yet to finalize.

Here’s how the full Ioniq 6 lineup rounds out: The SE RWD Long Range with 18-inch wheels achieves 361 miles of range and 140 MPGe; the SE AWD Long Range with 18-inch wheels achieves 316 miles and 121 MPGe; the SEL RWD with 20-inch wheels and the Limited RWD with 20-inch wheels both achieve 305 miles and 117 MPGe; the SEL AWD and Limited AWD with 20-inchers both achieve 270 miles and 103 MPGe. Pick your poison.
