Every version of the five-seat electric crossover will feature the curved panoramic display, with twin 12.3-inch touchscreens across the dashboard. This provides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration as standard, as well as Kia’s ‘connected car’ UVO Connect system and a range of dedicated EV displays. A battery heat pump, designed to maximise driving range in sub-zero temperatures, is standard on the EV6 GT and available as an option on GT-Line and GT-Line S models.

Pricing for the rear-wheel-drive EV6 starts from £40,895. Sports-inspired EV6 GT-Line models start from £43,895 for rear-wheel-drive models, and £47,395 for all-wheel-drive variants. GT-Line S models, with additional standard equipment, are priced from £48,395 (rear-wheel-drive) and £51,895 (all-wheel-drive).

The range-topping GT model, due in the second half of 2022, features a powerful all-wheel-drive system. Its 430kW dual-motor drivetrain offers a combined total power output of 577 horsepower. Kia engineers, who are currently finalising the development of the EV6 GT, are targeting an incredible 0-62mph  (0-100kph) acceleration of just 3.5-seconds.

UK customer deliveries of the new Kia EV6 will commence from October 2021 for baseline, GT-Line and GT-Line S models. For more details click here.
