With Kia's EV6 Electric Vehicle, Kia is Setting The Bar For Affordable Electric Vehicle

From what I gleaned from Kia's pre-trip presentation, Kia is positioning the EV6 as a Generation Z family sedan, the Taurus SHO for millennials, and I applaud them for it. Part of the growth of Korean automaker Kia is showing in its announcement that its 2022 EV6 will be featured in an LVI Super Bowl ad between two Sundays. Last week, Korean automaker Kia announced pricing for its 2022 EV6, the automaker's first all-electric model. The price of the Kias EV6, the company's first all-electric model, the Kias EV6, the company's first all-electric model, has finally been revealed. depending on trim level, Kias said in a statement.

Its third-generation electric motor is Korean automaker Kia's first electrified vehicle under its new electrification plan, Plan S. Koreas Kia is actually producing its third-generation electric motor and putting it entirely at the heart of the all-new EV6. electric. A 58kWh nickel-cobalt-manganese EV6 battery powers a 168kW rear motor that produces 167 horsepower. The EV6 drivetrain, unfortunately, can only work with a 400V charging architecture, which increases the amount needed to fully charge it.

Unfortunately, the transmission can only work with the 400V charging architecture, which increases the amount needed to fully charge the Light. Literally, Kia EV6 needs to stay on charge for more than a weekend - 51 hours and 5 minutes in particular, according to Kias figures - to maximize battery capacity. At home, using a 240V/48A connection (i.e. a home charging box), you have just under 6 hours to fully charge, but with a standard 110V/12A outlet (like the one you plug your coffee maker into), which will take days. Charging time will depend on both the level of charge and the type of charger you use, but thanks to the all-new 800-volt EV6 all-electric architecture, the EV6 can charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes when docked. charger up to 350 kW.


You won't see the same slowdowns with the Wind or GT because the Wind uses the same 800V-style powertrains we're starting to see on more expensive EVs like the GM Hummer EV, Porsche Taycan, Audis E-Tron, and Ford Mustang. Mah-E. The EV6 also has a wireless charging pad on the front armrest (engine start button and selector next to the handrail). Its third-generation electric motor has a working lower grille, which is unusual for electric vehicles in general.

The large, sporty rear fenders as well as the spoilers are a testament to the performance of the EV6. Like its better-known EV6 brethren, the Light uses MacPherson struts up front and multi-link rear suspension. Instead of a 50/50 weight balance, Korean Kia shifted the distortion back a bit, and the result is an all-new all-electric dual EV6.

For reference, this car has a wheelbase 0.4 inches longer than the Tesla Model Y, while being shorter in all other external dimensions. First, the front wheels have slightly less mass pushing them by the apexes, so the all-new all-electric EV6 corners are sharper than you might expect. Thanks to the Kia EV6 22, even a Porsche Macan or a Lamborghini Urus looks tall, boxy, and huge.

The EV6 isn't as overtly aggressive as the Mach-E, nor as nimble in corners as the Polestar 2 - certainly not as pretentious as the Tesla Model Y - and the EV6 shouldn't be. Just as we felt the Ioniq 5 was the new EV to beat, the all-new all-electric EV6 fits the podium.

When the EV6 arrives in all 50 states this spring, the EV6 will face the likes of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Model Y, Ioniq 5, and Nissan Ariya, not to mention vehicles owned by Kia. From Hyundai's parent company Kona EV -- probably the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra, they've finally arrived too. When the EV6 arrives in all 50 states this spring, it will be against their will: Ford Mustang Mach-e, Volkswagen ID.4, Tesla Model Y, Ioniq 5 and Nissan's Aria, not to mention his brother Kias owns An electric car Nero EV, Hyundai's mom is Kona. Electric cars - and possibly the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solters, are finally arriving too. Its 2022 EV6 is the result of Kia's "Plan S" strategy, the latest iteration of the automaker's announcement in early 2020. The EV6 is the only car made by the Hyundai (which owns Kia) Kia Group.

To find out, we drove an all-new all-electric EV6 on some of Northern California's toughest roads, and here's what we found. The EV6 Light, Kia's entry-level trim, retails for $40,900 and offers matching performance. The EV6 Light will offer rear-wheel drive, a 58 kWh battery pack, and a range of 232 miles (373 km). They'll also give Kia another first-of-its-kind V2L (Vehicle to Load) feature, similar to the Ford F-150 Lightning, which means you can use the Kia EV6 as a giant spinning battery that can power a variety of accessories and power tools powered by. 110V and various home appliance components in case of power outages.
