The future is electrifying
(Select Wellington – Lower Hutt Kia)
Built on a platform specifically for electric vehicles, the EV6 changes the game when it comes to electric mobility. With a full-charge range capable of running 500km, this electric vehicle can accomplish a serious road trip or even a weeks commute without needing to charge. The platform and clever design allow for a large amount of interior space, with the aim to rival the space of an SUV without the weight. The EV6 also has performance in mind with the GT version managing 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and can even tow 1600kg.
We are expecting the EV6 to have a portfolio of 5 models:
- EV6 Air RWD Standard Range 58 kWh (Entry level)
- EV6 Air RWD Long Range 77.4 kWh
- EV6 Earth AWD 77.4 kWh
- EV6 GT-Line AWD 77.4 kWh
- EV6 GT AWD 77.4 kWh
The Long Range option is capable of travelling 528km on a single charge, while the AWD models are capable of covering approximately 506km.
Interior space will not be a problem in the EV6, 990mm of legroom at the rear is not far off the front legroom of 1,078mm. There is also a cargo space of 490 litres with the seats able to fold down with a 60:40 split giving you an additional 810 litres. In addition, the whole lineup will receive safety systems such as Lane Keep Assist, Lane Follow Assist & Forward Collision Avoidance Assistance. The driver seat will also be powered with memory settings and lumbar control as standard. For models on Earth AWD and above you will also see the implementation of an Augmented Reality Head-up Display.
We are also expecting to see Vehicle to Load and Vehicle to Vehicle charging meaning that you can use the EV6 to power appliances or tools while out and about.
This new electric performance sedan will prove to be a modern Tesla rival but with the value-driven price-tag that Kia is renowned for. To be kept in the loop with updates register your interest or if you want to get your space on the waiting list you can pre-order with us.
