Kia reveals full pricing and specifications for the new Kia EV6 fully electric car.
This sharply styled five-seat crossover is the Kia EV6, one of the latest additions to the growing ranks of electric cars, and with UK deliveries beginning in October the company has now revealed full pricing and specifications for the range.
Kia’s first car based on their Electric-Global Modular Platform, all versions are fitted with a 77kWh battery pack and feature 800v charging as standard, the latter meaning that a 10-80% charge can take as little as 18 minutes.
Also standard is a curved, panoramic instrument display featured twin 12.3-inch touchscreens, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and Kia’s UVO Connect system.
The range kicks off at £40,895 which gets you a rear-wheel drive Kia EV6 with a 226bhp motor mounted on the rear axle and a claimed range of 316 miles. Even this entry-level version gets an impressive roster of kit, though, including vegan leather upholstery, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting front and rear and plenty of driver assistance tech.
Upgrade to the GT-Line model and there’s a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powertrains. Priced from £43,895 and £47,395 respectively, the former is fitted with the single 226bhp rear-mounted motor while the all-wheel drive version has a dual-motor set-up with 321bhp. Additional equipment includes adaptive LED headlights, wireless phone charging and ‘premium relaxation’ front seats that fold down.
Topping the range for now is the GT-Line S that is also available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive formats and costs from £48,395 to £51,895. Packed with equipment, it features 20-inch alloys, ventilated and heated front seats, a power tailgate, panoramic roof, 14-speaker audio and an Augmented Reality head-up display.
A Kia EV6 GT model will appear in the second half of 2022, this version featuring a dual-motor set-up producing 577bhp. The details of the powertrain are still being finalised but Kia say that engineers are aiming for a 0-62mph time of 3.5 seconds. That will be accompanied by a more sporting specification that includes adaptive suspension, an electronic limited slip differential, bucket seats and 21-inch alloy wheels.
So far, more than 1000 buyers have pre-reserved an EV6 and Kia say that this model is the first of eleven new battery electric vehicles that it plans to launch by 2026.
