Kia Reveals Three Versions Of EV6: Announces Specs, Details

Three versions will be available: EV6, EV6 GT-line and EV6 GT.

Kia has officially unveiled today the entire family of the EV6, its first dedicated electric car, which will go on sale in select global markets starting from the second half of 2021. Online reservations will be opened in some initial markets today. The EV6 will be produced in South Korea.

According to the South Korean manufacturer, the EV6 escapes the boundaries of today’s segmentation, bringing balance between contrasting elements. It’s a really beautiful car, with an especially interesting interior.

Inside, the two 12-inch displays – instrument cluster and infotainment system – “are connected as if they were wrapped around one body with a reinforced glass.” It looks really futuristic and fits in with the new trend.

Thanks to the use of the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the cabin is also very spacious.

There will be three versions of the car: EV6, EV6 GT-line and EV6 GT. Most of them will be available in multiple configurations, including two battery options as well as rear- or all-wheel-drive).

The battery options will be 58.0 kWh and 77.4 kWh. The big one should last for up to 510 km (317 miles) of WLTP range. Of course, all the battery systems are about 800V nominal (with an ability to accept 400V DC charging) and the charging from 10-80% takes just 18 minutes.

The top of the line version, the EV6 GT, with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system (430 kW and 740 Nm) will allow accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 260 km/h.

Just like in the case of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6 is equipped with a power export feature (up to 3.6 kW). There is a heat pump to improve range in cold weather (at -7°C the car can achieve 80% of the range that would be possible at 25°C).

The charging inlet is located in the rear corner. There is also a front trunk, but its capacity varies depending on version and market (20 or 52 liters). The EV6 has a towing capability of up to 1,600 kg (maximum load with more than 35% charge left in the battery).

Kia has equipped the EV6 with six regenerative braking levels (none, 1 to 3, ‘i-PEDAL’, or auto mode). The car is ready for over-the-air (OTA) software updates.
