Electric Kia EV6: UK prices revealed
The Kia EV6 electric car will be priced from £40,895, with UK deliveries expected to commence from October.
Here’s what we know so far.
Kia EV6 styling
The daytime running lights form part of the car’s ‘Digital Tiger Face’, a design progression evoking the spirit of Kia’s ‘Tiger Nose Grille’ for the electrified era. Modern, sleek and aerodynamic sum up the side profile of the EV6. The rear displays a sloping C-pillar with an integrated black glossy insert, which visually widens the window glass.
The Opposites United design philosophy makes its debut on EV6, and will inform the design of all future Kia models. It is based on five key design pillars: ‘Bold for Nature’, ‘Joy for Reason’, ‘Power to Progress’, ‘Technology for Life’, and ‘Tension for Serenity’.
Kia EV6 interior
One of the key talking points is the seamless high-tech curved high-definition audio visual and navigation screen. The EV6’s interior design profiles an innovative use of space, creating a unique spatial and driving experience.
The width of the screen creates an immersive experience for the driver, while a minimal number of physical buttons offer an uncluttered and soothing driving experience.
You’ll be sitting comfortably too. The seats are slim, lightweight and contemporary, and clad in modern, visually interesting and robust fabrics created using recycled plastics, which create yet greater openness in the cabin.
Kia EV6 trim levels
The range kicks off with the baseline Ev6, which is priced from £40,895. Next up is the mid-range “sports inspired” EV6 GT-Line, that costs from £43,895. Pricing for the high-performance GT model will start at £58,296.
Exact details and specs for UK cars are set to be announced in May, with deliveries commencing from October.
Kia EV6 drivetrain
The EV6 will sit on the same platform as the recently revealed Hyundai Ioniq 5 crossover. While full spec is yet to be revealed, this should mean it can travel more than 300 miles between charges.
It also means we can expect the EV6 to be priced similarly, meaning it’ll be taking on some tough competition when it eventually arrives.
Speaking about the EV6, Kia’s Karim Habib said: “The EV6 is the embodiment of our brand purpose and our new design philosophy.
“It has been designed to inspire every journey by offering an instinctive and natural experience that improves the daily lives of our customers and provides user ownership that’s simple, intuitive and integrated”.
Kia EV6 name
The EV6 might be the first all-electric vehicle for Kia, but that’s all set to change over the next few years.
The naming strategy of the EV6 will be the first model to feature this simplified nomenclature for its EVs. By 2027, the brand wants to have shifted away from internal combustion.
We can therefore expect EV2, EV3 etc to follow the launch of this car.
