    Powertrain and charging

    The Malaysia-spec electric crossover comes with a twin-motor AWD electric drivetrain paired with a 77.4 kWh battery pack. The former generates a maximum power output of 325 PS and a peak torque of 605 Nm, which is enough to propel the EV from standstill to 100 kmph in 5.2 seconds. After hitting the century sprint, the car hits a top speed of 185 kmph. 

    The Kia EV6 range is rated at 506 km (on the WLTP test cycle). As for charging, it features a multi-charging system compatible with 400-volt as well as 800-volt DC fast chargers. The EV takes only 18 minutes to charge from 10 to 80% when using a 350 kW DC fast charger. However, if you will use an 11 kW AC unit, the same task will take around 7 hours and 20 minutes.
