Hyundai Adds Ioniq 6 Lite and Plus Variants to its Malaysia Lineup
Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) is expanding its offering in Malaysia by introducing two new variants of the Ioniq 6, namely the Ioniq 6 Lite and Ioniq 6 Plus. These additions join the previously launched Max RWD and Max AWD variants that debuted in July, giving Malaysian customers more choices within the Ioniq 6 range.
The new Lite and Plus variants of the Ioniq 6 are equipped with a single-motor rear-wheel-drive (RWD) configuration. Both models feature a 53 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery paired with a 111 kW motor, delivering the same 350 Nm torque as the Max RWD. As a result, both Lite and Plus variants can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.8 seconds.
In terms of range, these variants can cover 429 km on the stringent WLTP cycle. Thanks to their 800-volt architecture, shared with the Max variants, the Ioniq 6 Lite and Plus can charge from 10% to 80% in a mere 18 minutes with a maximum of 350 kW DC. Even when using less powerful chargers, the Lite and Plus achieve efficient charging times of 10% to 80% in 58 minutes at 50 kW DC and a full 0% to 100% charge in 5.5 hours at 11 kW AC.
Both Lite and Plus variants come generously equipped with features like seven airbags (including a front-center airbag), Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) capability, dual 12.3-inch screens, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, 64-color ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, and a power tailgate.
The Ioniq 6 range in Malaysia now starts at RM219,888 for the Lite RWD variant, while the Plus RWD variant is priced at RM249,888.
All prices are on-the-road before insurance and include an eight-year/160,000 km battery warranty. For an additional RM10,000, customers can upgrade the standard vehicle warranty to five years/100,000 km, which also includes three years/50,000 km of free service. Additionally, the first 30 owners will receive a free one-year Shell Recharge Gold membership upon vehicle delivery.
Customers interested in the Ioniq 6 can place bookings at authorized Hyundai outlets nationwide or through the online booking platform. The Lite and Plus variants are available in the same five body colors as the Max variants: Abyss Black Pearl, Nocturne Grey Matte, Biophilic Blue Pearl, Dive Blue Solid, and Gravity Gold Matte. Deliveries of the Ioniq 6 Lite and Plus are scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
