2023 Hyundai EV models overview
With more drivers choosing to purchase all-electric vehicles, car manufacturers continue to add new EVs to their lineups and make exciting changes to their current models. In 2023, you can expect Hyundai to release updates for its impressive selection of EVs, which will likely include the all-new Ioniq 6 electric sedan. If you just can’t wait until 2023 to learn more about these updates, don’t fret. This guide offers an overview to explain what we know (and don’t yet know) about the new 2023 Hyundai EV models, plus some new features and technology that could be coming soon.
Hyundai Ioniq 5
In 2022, Hyundai ushered in its new EV series with the Ioniq 5, and it didn’t take long for the vehicle to become a popular choice for drivers looking for an efficient, stylish all-electric crossover. In 2023, Hyundai will probably continue to expand the Ioniq into more U.S. markets, including the great state of Texas. This five-passenger electric crossover features a clean, sleek exterior with state-of-the-art technology on the inside, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It’s possible the new 2023 Ioniq 5 could receive minor exterior and interior updates.
The first-generation Ioniq 5 comes standard with a single electric motor powered by a 58-kWh battery. Upper trims offer an all-wheel-drive option with dual motors and a larger 77.4-kWh battery. The dual-motor system can provide up to 303 miles of driving range. It’s likely the 2023 Ioniq 5 models will have powertrain options with similar driving ranges. The 2022 Ioniq 5 comes in three trim levels, which could remain the same when Hyundai releases the 2023 models.
Hyundai Ioniq 6
In 2023, Hyundai plans to debut the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6. While it may share some similarities with the Ioniq 5, the compact sedan will be smaller than the crossover. The four-door sedan will have seating for five passengers and sizable trunk space. Other interior features may follow the same modern design as the Ioniq 5, which offers a wide range of creature comforts.
The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6 will likely have the same powertrain as its crossover sibling, which offers a 303-mile-per-charge driving range. The aerodynamic shape of the Ioniq 6 means it may achieve even longer ranges, which would be a plus for many drivers. Like the Ioniq 5, the all-new EV may feature a single electric motor with rear-wheel drive for base models, while upper trims would offer a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive system producing up to 300 horsepower.
Hyundai Kona Electric
While some speculated about new versions of the Hyundai Kona Electric, there have been reports Hyundai plans to release an update to the popular small electric SUV in 2023. First glimpses of the potential 2023 model offer a look at its design, which features a multi-layered front fascia and split headlamps. Inside the vehicle, the Kona EV could receive an updated dashboard with a dual display for the digital instrument cluster and touch-screen infotainment system.
The 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric could receive an update to its current powertrain, which features an electric motor powered by a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The all-electric small SUV currently has a 258-mile driving range, though any upgrades to the 2023 model could extend that range. Right now, the Hyundai Kona Electric currently comes in two trim levels, which could remain the same in 2023.
New Hyundai Features and Technology for 2023
While much is still unknown about 2023 Hyundai EV models, you can expect these models to offer state-of-the-art technology and top-line safety features, standard to the iconic Hyundai brand. The 2023 Palisade SUV, which Hyundai unveiled in April, will become the first vehicle in the lineup with Wi-Fi hotspot capability. A digital rearview mirror, which provides an additional view behind the vehicle, will become an option for some drivers. In 2023, Hyundai will also release the latest version of its Hyundai Digital Key, which allows drivers to lock, unlock, and start vehicles from their phones or devices.
Hyundai equips its vehicles with some of the best safety and driver-assistance features on the market, and it will continue to offer those features in 2023. The Hyundai SmartSense system uses sensors, cameras, and radars to provide wide-ranging views when you drive or park. Other SmartSense features you can expect to see in 2023 models include driver attention warning, lane following assist, and blind-spot view monitors.
When Will Hyundai Release Its 2023 EV Models?
There’s no official release date for any of the 2023 Hyundai EV models. Hyundai has provided information about some of its popular gas-powered models, such as the 2023 Palisade, though it hasn’t set on-sale dates yet. Typically, Hyundai releases next year’s vehicles in the summer, and it’s expected to follow the same schedule for 2023. That means more information about 2023 EV models could come soon. When Hyundai releases this information, our staff at Hiley Hyundai of Fort Worth will be ready to answer your questions.
What Other EVs Does Hyundai Have?
Currently, Hyundai offers two all-electric vehicles: the Kona Electric and the Ioniq 5. The manufacturer also offers a variety of plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles, which will likely receive updates for the 2023 model year. Some of these vehicles include:
- Tucson: Hyundai offers both a hybrid and plug-in hybrid version of its compact SUV, which received major updates in 2022. The 2023 Tucson should continue to offer drivers an affordable, efficient option for a hybrid compact SUV.
- Santa Fe: In 2022, Hyundai released the first hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of its popular Santa Fe, a midsize SUV. Like the Tucson, these models may receive small updates in 2023, continuing to make the vehicle a popular option for families looking for a hybrid SUV.
- Elantra: Hyundai began offering the Elantra Hybrid sedan in 2021, and the current model gets an impressive 56 mpg on the highway. Updates to the 2023 Elantra Hybrid could include wireless charging and Hyundai Digital Key availability.
