Kia EV6: Up to 577 HP, 316 Miles of Range, and Incredibly Sharp Looks

In case you haven’t noticed, Hyundai and Kia have really become shining stars over the past decade or so. Kia in particular has been making waves with a myriad of new and updated product offerings, including the announcement of its first dedicated battery-electric vehicle riding on the E-GMP platform.

On Tuesday, Kia let loose the details on its upcoming all-electric crossover coined the EV6, showing off just how much tech and personality can be packed into such a sensible package.

The most important part of any BEV launch in 2021 is making a statement. Some companies do this by offering class-leading range, others by raw power, and some stick to unique styling. Kia has decided to go for a little bit of everything.

For starters, it’s important to note that Kia plans to offer the EV6 in a number of different drivetrain and battery configurations. Both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models will be available, as will standard and long-range battery packs at 58 kilowatt-hours and 77.4 kWh, respectively. The most impressive EV6, range-wise, is equipped with both the long-range battery pack and rear-wheel-drive. Kia claims that this particular spec is good for about 316 miles on a single charge, though that’s on the WLTP testing cycle—the EPA estimate may be significantly lower.
