2023 KIA EV 6 GT eAWD

by Mike Hunter

With an all-electric drivetrain, the EV6 offers a powerful driving experience. All models feature the quick response of an electric motor, with select trims like GT-Line AWD capable of delivering 446 pound-fee of torque for a 0–60 mph time of 4.6 seconds — beating the 335-horsepower 2021 Porsche Cayenne Coupe in independent quarter-mile tests certified by AMCI Testing.

The EV6 is Kia’s first vehicle to utilize its E-GMP architecture. Developed exclusively for Kia’s electric vehicles, it utilizes significant amounts of ultra-high-strength steel to provide a structure that’s both lighter and stronger, helping to deliver better handling and offering a wheelbase similar to many mid-size SUVs.

The EV6 comes standard with RWD and a multi-link rear suspension to deliver responsive and sporty handling on Wind and GT-Line trims. Available models with torque-vectoring e-AWD feature dual motors to deliver impressive acceleration and all-weather grip.

The EV6’s versatile system works with both 400v and 800v DC fast chargers. Using an 800v DC fast charger provides up to 217 miles of range in approximately 18 minutes on Wind and GT-Line RWD. With the EV6, drivers have the freedom to go far. The 310-mile EPA-estimated range available in Wind RWD and GT-Line RWD lets drivers explore far and wide and worry less about charging. 

The 12.3-inch Dual Panoramic Displays provide a stunning 24 inches of combined curved display for navigation, diagnostic, convenience, entertainment and immersive vehicle information features. The available groundbreaking Head-Up Display shows certain safety information and route guidance in augmented reality, providing additional info to help the driver keep eyes on the road ahead.

With up to 50.2 cubic feet of rear cargo room, the car offers more room for gear and supplies while on the go. Plus, the standard Smart Power Tailgate opens automatically by sensing the owner’s key, providing hands-free access to the cargo area for easier loading and unloading.

The interior is designed to inspire, with available ambient lighting to set the mood and premium features that create a luxurious experience while on the road. A standard 14-Speaker Meridian® Premium Audio System with Subwoofer & External Amplifier delivers powerful sound for the drive.
