Kia’s brand new EV6, EV6 GT-Line and EV6 GT are now official and (for some people) can already be reserved.The flagship is based on the E-GMP platform and promises a decent crossover that looks more like sports car wishes

This car is packed with both technology and really useful features. For one thing, the EV6 can charge another EV from the battery or send power into your house in the event of a power failure

Kia has announced that the EV6 will go on sale in the second half of 2021.Some markets can pre-order the car now, so it is likely that Korea, the EU and the US will be some of the first places to go You can order the car

Pricing is a little tricky There are currently no US numbers We’ll update this page as soon as we have it, but as a rough guide in the UK, the EV6 is at 40£ 895 listed (56142 USD based on a direct currency conversion) The EV6 GT-Line costs 43896 GBP (60262 USD) and the GT is £ 58295 ($ 80027)

It is fair to say that the EV6 meets the right criteria when it comes to design

The outside of the EV6 is equipped with stylish and modern LED lighting A taillight system that traverses the entire trunk makes it clear that this car is a bit different without being completely at odds with anything else on the road

Inside, Kia didn’t fall for this Tesla-like tablet design instead, it has followed Porsche’s lead, using a proper display behind the steering wheel and another above the center console, which is a more traditional approach to cabin design, which means That it isn’t quite as stunning right away, however, it will still look good in a few years’ time when the tablet screens have faded

There are plenty of physical controls that mean you don’t have to operate everything from a touchscreen If traditional car owners switch to electric, this is likely a big selling point for anyone not interested in high tech gadgets in their cars

You can choose from three versions of the car There are the EV6, the EV6 GT-Line and the EV6 GT This high-specification EV6 GT only comes with the long-range 774 kWh battery.The EV6 and GT-Line models come with either the 58 kWh or 77 kWh 4 kWh battery

Kia says the rear-wheel drive EV6 with the long distance package can go 510 kilometers, or about 316 miles, based on the European WLTP test standard

The GT model will only be equipped with all-wheel drive, while the EV6 and EV6 GT-Line can choose between AWD and rear-wheel drive

Given the size of this car, the more than 316 mile range claim looks pretty promising. What’s even better is the car’s ability to charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes – you can get around a range of around five minutes Add 100km The numbers are a bit old now (2003), but the US Department of Transportation claims the average American commute is 15 miles each way. Around 8% of workers drive more than 35 miles

The Kia EV6 GT model can go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3 minutes, 5 seconds and has a top speed of 160 mph, the standard rear-wheel drive can go from 6 to 100 km / h in 2 seconds and the AWD model can hit this important number in 5.2 seconds

Kia also says the EV6 can act as a portable power supply for your life.It comes with a vehicle for charging that allows you to send power from the car straight to your home in the event of a power outage.It can deliver up to 3.6kW Power in this mode, enough to at least keep your fridge cool and turn on some lights

Here is Kia’s introductory video for the EV6 where you can see this exciting addition to the EV vehicle world for yourself, feel free to skip the company stuff and go to 1:47 for the actual car

This is for sure one of the most exciting new cars of the year The design is invigorating and ready to match the ever popular Tesla The EV6 doesn’t fall into flashy traps with its design the front and back are both modern but functional; and the interior seems to balance high-tech without resorting to endless tapping on a touchscreen

The fast charging, long range, and the ability to use this car as a source of power on a camping trip or during a power outage are thoughtful and probably very useful, Kia may have put together the ultimate electric car package here
