Kia unveils the EV6 in its entirety, a new 100% electric crossover that is already available for reservation from € 47,990.
On March 15, Kia unveiled a brand new model: the EV6, a 100% electric crossover, cousin of the recent Hyundai Ioniq 5.
At the time, the South Korean manufacturer presented its slender lines and sharp features in broad daylight. Its sculpted bonnet, its tapered headlamps and its slanted rear window in a coupé style. Without forgetting, of course, its sleek dashboard.
For the rest, Kia was however discreet. Not a word on the power of the engine, nothing on performance and even less on autonomy. The technical sheet of the machine then remained a mystery. Just did we know that this EV6 was based on the new group E-GPM platform Hyundai, dedicated to zero-emission vehicles and used in particular for the Ioniq 5. Fortunately today, the brand is revealing more …
We learn in particular that the model will be proposed in three variants (EV6, EV6 GT-line et la sportive EV6 GT) who will not have not quite the same dimensions (4.68 to 4.695 m in length, 1.88 m or 1.89 m in width and 2.90 m in wheelbase for a boot volume of between 520 and 1,300 liters, plus a small front compartment of 20 to 52 liters depending on the version) nor the same technical specifications.
Up to 585 hp and 510 km of range
The car will thus be able to embark one or two electric motors (two or four-wheel drive) for a power of up to 585 hp (350 to 740 Nm of torque). With the GT version, the most powerful, Kia promises a 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 260 km / h.
The EV6 will also be offered with several battery packs, 58 or 77.4 kWh, for autonomy varying from 400 to 510 km (WLTP cycle). With fast charging, the battery capacity can increase from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes. Or 100 kilometers of autonomy can be recovered in the space of 4.5 minutes (800 V recharging system against 400 V usually).
EV6 can power other electrical devices
Other info: the crossover will be full of technologies including a augmented reality head-up display and a large curved digital panel made up of two 12.3-inch screens.
The V2L technology (Vehicle to Load or reverse charge function) will also be there and allow the EV6 to be … an electrical power source. The car can indeed offer some of its energy (up to 3.6 kW) to other devices, such as electric bicycles for example.
