Let’s delve a little deeper into what makes the Kia EV6 a superb choice in the realm of electric vehicles.
Power and Performance
There are four trim levels of the EV6, beginning with Light, Wind, GT-Line, and finally the GT. Several powertrain configurations are also available, with more on offer than before. Kia is introducing the Light Long Range RWD and the Light e-AWD models for the new year, making a less expensive option with the more powerful electric motor(s) and bigger battery pack. These variants pair the larger 77.4 kWh battery and stronger motors (RWD with 225 horsepower and AWD with 320 hp) with the base trim, which was unavailable in prior years. The most economical model is still the Light RWD version, which continues with the smaller 58 kWh battery pack and an electric motor producing 167 hp. Acceleration gets thrilling with the 320-horsepower GT-Line sprinting from a standstill to 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds, while the 576-hp GT model does it in a mere 3.2 seconds!
As for driving range, the EV6 is just as impressive. Wind RWD models are equipped with the larger battery and are good for a range of up to 310 miles. Even the performance-based GT-Line has an admirable range of up to 252 miles. And with the help of a 350-kW fast charger, you’ll only need 18 minutes to charge the battery from 10% to 80%. When using a Level 2 power outlet, the portable 11-kW charger will fully charge the battery overnight.
2024 Kia EV6 near Rio Rancho, NM: Handling
No matter how tight the turn, every EV6 model will remain stable and easily controlled thanks to MacPherson struts in front and independent multi-linkage in the rear, allowing for a well-tuned suspension. GT models have an electronically controlled front suspension and more aggressive tuning that automatically optimizes handling for various conditions.
Ventilated (12.8-inch) disc brakes in both front and rear promise excellent stopping power. With the high horsepower GT trim, brakes are larger, with 15-inch ones in front and 14.2 inches for the rear wheels.
Inside the EV6
Step inside the cabin of the EV6, and you’ll find a sleek and modern interior with dual panoramic screens for infotainment and instrumentation. A head-up display is available, which uses augmented reality to identify other vehicles, show navigation directions, and assist you with changing lanes. A few other features are heated and ventilated front seats, standard dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8-way power driver’s seat.
With a wheelbase as long as the 3-row Kia Telluride and a flat floor, passenger space is generous in the spacious EV6. Behind the rear seat, is 28 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 54 cubes with the back row folded, allowing you to store your gear easily.
Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and satellite radio can be accessed through the 12.3-inch touchscreen, while five USB ports throughout the cabin ensure continued charging for everyone’s devices.
