Kia UK Limited, who revealed details of its new Kia EV6 electric car last month, has revealed full pricing and specifications for the EV6 model line-up today, ahead of UK customer deliveries starting later this year. The EV6 is Kia’s first car based on the company’s dedicated new E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform) electric car technology.
Every UK model of this electric crossover sports utility vehicle features a long-range 77.4kWh battery pack. Ultra-fast 800V charging capabilities, which is standard on all models, allow the EV6 to recharge from 10 to 80 percent battery charge in as little as 18 minutes with a fast charger.
Every version of the five-seat electric crossover will feature the curved panoramic display, with twin 12.3-inch touchscreens across the dashboard. This provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration as standard, as well as Kia’s ‘connected car’ UVO Connect system and a range of dedicated EV displays. A battery heat pump, designed to maximise driving range in sub-zero temperatures, is standard on the EV6 GT and available as an option on GT-Line and GT-Line S models.
Pricing for the rear-wheel-drive EV6 starts from £40,895. Sports-inspired EV6 GT-Line models start from £43,895 for rear-wheel-drive models, and £47,395 for all-wheel-drive variants. GT-Line S models, with additional standard equipment, are priced from £48,395 (rear-wheel-drive) and £51,895 (all-wheel-drive).
The range-topping GT model, due in the second half of 2022, features a powerful all-wheel-drive system. Its 430kW dual-motor drivetrain offers a combined total power output of 577 horsepower. Kia engineers, who are currently finalising the development of the EV6 GT, are targeting an incredible 0-62mph (0-100kph) acceleration of just 3.5-seconds.
