Hello all,

Just put a deposit down on an EV6 here in Canada :) I was wondering whether anyone has information regarding a panoramic glass roof for the EV6. The Ioniq 5 marketed theirs quite ferociously, but it's pretty quiet on the EV6 front.

Based on pics, seems like only the GT has a 1/2 glass roof. Seems strange that other trims, such as the GT-line does not have any, let alone a small sunroof.

I'm sure all the trims will have the standard size room as an option. The much larger sunroof will only come on the IONIQ 5 as an option. However, what I find inconsistent with both models is the availability of driver-side ceiling grab handels with the sunroof. Some sunroof models have them while others don't. Maybe they come with some sort of luxury package?

Hey - congratulations on the deposit!

From Canada as well and I am curious how/where you were able to put down a deposit?

I prefer a smaller sunroom that opens than a large glass roof that doesn’t.
My current CX-5 has a smaller sunroof, very happy with it. The Cherokee before had a pano roof and felt it was a little too much "bling" for me. I like things to be simple.

I don't know the answer, but I hate sunroofs, totally useless IMO, better off with solar panel on top.
Tend to agree, a solar roof is far more useful
if they provide the option, like they do for the Ioniq5, I'll probably buy one !

Welcome to the forum @Al07! I solar roof would be neat but I've always been skeptical about whether or not they make that big of a difference on car's range.

Although a solar roof is more useful and will add range, what we actually get won't be that much, but it's something. The 2021 Sonata Hybrid for example gets 2 miles more a day thanks to its roof.

How long do you plan to own the EV6? If long enough, the solar roof makes a lot of sense.

At Aylmer Kia in Quebec. For $500. In Ontario they’ll want to charge you more ($1000) with no guarantees. In QC they’re mandated by law (from what I’ve been told) to keep it down to $500 and it to be fully refundable at any point.

Here in Denmark I have the possibility to order sunroof to all trim-levels. It's sadly not a panoramic roof, but a standard sunroof, that retracts on top of the roof. Hope it does not make to much noise when open.

Ioniq 5 has NO sunroof. Only the glass roof that is NOT operational.
