The 2023 Kia EV6 in Albuquerque NM is an All-Around Winner
Kia’s award-winning and first all-electric SUV, the EV6, is back for the 2023 model year. With bold looks, athletic performance, and an affordable price, it’s charting its own unique path through the EV market. Just as it’s won a bevy of automotive accolades, it will win you over with its energetic personality, spacious interior, and stylish exterior design. The 2023 Kia EV6 in Albuquerque NM is not only a well-rounded EV, but also fun to drive and easy to own.
The Award-Winning EV6
In January this year, the EV6 was named “Electric SUV of the Year,” and overall “Car of the Year” at the prestigious 2022 What Car? Awards in the United Kingdom. This victory for Kia’s first fully-electric vehicle is only the second time an EV won the title, the first having gone to another Kia model, the eNiro, in 2019.
The COY trophy comes after a long list of awards given by experts from several international media outlets since its global debut in March of last year. These include winning the “Premium” category in the German Car of the Year Awards, and Top Gear’s “Crossover of the Year” award.
And not long after being crowned 2022 European Car of the Year, the EV6 also won two Red Dot Awards. The first was the “Best of the Best” for its groundbreaking design and the top winner in the category of “Innovative Products.” As one of the most famous design competitions in the world, the Red Dot Design Award is given annually by the Design Zentrum Nordhein-Westfalen Institution in Germany.
What This Means for You
According to Steve Huntingford, the editor of What Car? magazine, “The EV6 combines a huge real-world range with the ability to charge at speeds that no rival can keep up with, which addresses two of the main concerns drivers still have about electric cars.” Additionally, by using a platform made exclusively for electric vehicles, rather than the revamped underpinnings of an internal-combustion engine model, the company has taken advantage of the small size of electric motors and built a car that’s quite roomy and practical. “Add in effortless performance, outstanding refinement, competitive pricing, and one of the best warranties out there, and the striking EV6 doesn’t just look like the future- it feels like it too,” said Huntingford.
The 2023 Kia EV6 in Albuquerque NM brings power with zero emissions, 800-volt ultra-fast charging, and unique styling to the crossover SUV segment. It can achieve up to 310 miles of driving range from a single charge (with the larger battery pack), while the advanced charging technology juices up the battery from 10 to 18 percent in only 18 minutes.
