Kia has unveiled the characteristics of the EV6 electric hatchback – the brother (but not the twin) of the previously announced Hyundai Ioniq 5. Like a relative in the concern, the Kia EV6 is offered with two options for traction batteries and two options for power plants: the car can be rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The highest mileage is provided by the single-engine version with a high-capacity traction battery – over 510 km on a single charge.

And in total, the Kia EV6 has five versions. Basic – with a 58 kWh battery, one 170 hp electric motor. and a power reserve of about 400 km. The all-wheel drive version with a traction battery of the same capacity is more powerful (235 hp), but its autonomy is slightly less – about 380 km.

EV6 with a traction battery with a capacity of 77.4 kWh and in a mono-drive version (here the power is slightly higher than in the version with the base battery – 228 hp) is able to demonstrate the same 510 km on a single charge, as mentioned above. The power of the variant with the same battery, but all-wheel drive, is 325 hp. Finally, at the top of the gamut is the EV6 GT with two electric motors with a total power of 585 hp, acceleration to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of about 260 km / h. For comparison, the Stinger GT was previously the fastest Kia, accelerating to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds.

The Kia EV6 is built on the same modular E-GMP platform as the Huyndai Ioniq 5, so it also supports charging from 350W fast terminals. With their help, the electric car charges from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. Reverse charging is also provided: from the EV6, you can power various electrical appliances or even try to recharge another electric vehicle. The maximum power in this case is up to 3.6 kW.

Kia also showed the interior of the novelty, in which, for example, a panoramic front panel with two curved 12.3-inch displays, a projection onto the windshield, seats made from recycled waste and with artificial leather trim (all for the sake of environmental friendliness). Of course, various driving assistance systems are provided.

It should be noted that despite its compactness (the length is 4.68 m), the car turned out to be very spacious: its wheelbase is an impressive 2.9 m.The trunk volume is 520 liters, and in the mono-drive versions there is also a front compartment for things with a volume of 52 liters …

Alas, Kia has yet to reveal the EV6 pricing. According to rumors, the price of the car in the basic version will be approximately $ 40,000. Sales should begin this year.
