    Kia EV6

    It was only last year that the South Korean automaker reinvented itself with a new name, new logo, and a new distinctive design philosophy called ‘Opposites United’. All of which seems to be working in favour of the brand.

    The Kia EV6 was the first vehicle to be launched under this new direction and is also the brand’s first dedicated battery electric car based on the company’s new Electric-Global modular Platform (E-GMP).

    Thanks to E-GMP, the EV6 is enabled to deliver a pleasant performance, ultra-fast charging, and AWD capability. It delivers an estimated all-electric range of 482 km. On the inside, the Kia EV6 offers an unprecedented level of comfort, connectivity, and safety.

    As for its mechanical configuration, the EV6 comes with an energy-dense Nickel-Cobalt-Manganese battery pack offered in two sizes - 58 kWh and 77.4 kWh. In both sizes the battery pack delivers power to both RWD and AWD electric engine layout with varying power at the front and rear axles.
