Kia EV6 Scores 23 In Bjørn's Banana Box Test

The Kia EV6 is the latest electric car model put to Bjørn Nyland’s humorous banana box test. Will it match the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (see test here)?

Well, as we can see, the front trunk (frunk) is too small to handle even a single box, while the rear shape of the car is not the most box-friendly. The relatively low roofline also limits the capacity compared to bigger SUVs.

In effect, the car was able to take 8 boxes in the trunk and a total of 23, after folding the second-row seat. That’s an acceptable, competitive result – on par with Audi e-tron, but two boxes lower than in the case of Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Ford Mustang Mach-E has an advantage of a bigger frunk, which allows it to score one additional box in the front.
