When the EV6 was first revealed a couple of weeks ago we shared a list of the "Top 10 Things You Need To Know" about it.

Now that Kia has officially revealed the technical specs of the EV6 we have 10 more things you need to know about the EV6.

1. Online reservations begin March 30th in some markets

The EV6 will go on-sale in select global markets starting from the second half of 2021, with online reservations beginning from March 30 in some markets.

It will be produced in South Korea.

2. There will be 3 models to choose from.

The EV6 will come in 3 different versions, the EV6, EV6 GT-line and EV6 GT.

The EV6 and EV6 GT-Line will have two battery options (58 kWh & 77.4 kWh) and will be available in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The EV6 GT will come with the 77.4 kWh battery and all-wheel drive only.

3. It has a range of up to 316 miles

Kia did not release the full list of range numbers for the EV6 but they did reveal that the RWD base EV6 with the 77.4 kWh battery can travel 316 miles (510 km) on a single charge based on the WLTP.


4. It can charge very quickly

One of the EV6's impressive specs is how fast it will be able to charge. Kia says it's able to handle both 800V and 400V charging and can charge from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes.

A top-up charge of 100km of range can happen in less than four and a half minutes with the 2WD model and 77.4 kWh battery.

5. The EV6 can charge tools, appliances, or another EV

The EV6 has a new Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU) that enables a new vehicle-to-load (V2L) function that allows it to deliver up to 3.6 kW of power to charge tools or appliances. Kia says the EV6 is capable of operating a 55-inch television and air conditioner simultaneously for more than 24 hours.

They say the EV6's ICCU also allows it to charge another EV if needed.

6. The EV6 GT delivers supercar performance

The EV6 GT's performance numbers can rival the best sports cars and even some supercars! With its dual motor all-wheel drive setup, the GT produces 577 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque. It can go from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

The lower trim models are no slouch either. The long range all-wheel drive version can reach 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and the standard range all-wheel drive version will reach 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds.


7. There are plenty of driver assistance systems

The EV6 offers class-leading levels of safety and convenience from its enhanced suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Highway Driving Assist 2 (HDA 2) maintains a set distance and speed from the vehicle ahead when driving on a highway. It also keeps the EV6 centered in the lane.

Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) helps remotely park or exit a parking spot with the driver operating EV6 from outside the vehicle.

Safe Exit Assist (SEA) helps people avoid collisions with a rear side vehicle when exiting EV6

8. How big is the EV6?

The base EV6 is built on the E-GMP platform and measures at 4,680 millimeters (184.2 inches) long, 1,880 mm (74 in) wide, and 1,550 mm (61 in) tall, with a wheelbase measuring 2,900 mm (114.1 in).

The GT-Line and GT models are slightly longer (4,695 mm/184.8 inches) and slightly wider (1,890 mm/74.4 inches) than the base model.

The GT model is also slightly lower than the base and GT-Line models (1,545 mm/60.8 inches).

9. How much storage space is there?

There should be plenty of storage space in the EV6 with its trunk and frunk. Kia lists the EV6's trunk space at 18.4 cubic feet (520 L) with the seats up and 46 cubic feet (1300 L) with the rear seats folded down.

For frunk space the North American EV6's will get 0.7 cubic feet (20 L) in both the rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions. Non-North American models will get 0.7 cubic feet (20 L) of frunk space in all-wheel drive models and 1.8 cubic feet (52 L) in rear-wheel drive models.

10. The interior features 12-inch dual screens

Kia has given the EV6 a new high-tech infotainment system that features 12-inch dual screens for the instrument cluster and center screen. Both screens are connected together to give one seamless look.

The EV6 features an augmented reality (AR) head-up display system, which projects driving information onto the base of the windscreen in the driver’s line of sight.

The latest version of Kia’s 'Kia Connect' (formerly UVO) allows users to find locations and pricing of EV charging points, view their vehicle’s charging status, plan smart charging schedules and check the range radius based on the remaining charge.

A 14-speaker Meridian surround audio system is also available and has Active Sound Design (ASD) to deliver audio feedback in relation to how fast the car is going.
