Australia's allocation of 2022 Kia EV6 electric SUVs will initially comprise just 500 cars, commencing in the first half of 2022 – all of which will be sold through Kia Australia's dealers at negotiable prices.
"500 [examples] of the EV6 (in base and GT-Line trims) have been earmarked for Australia in 2022 and like all Kia models, the allocation will be staggered throughout the year. We are of course in continuous dialogue with head office about increasing this number," a Kia Australia spokesperson told Drive.
The 500-unit allocation compares with 400 examples of the EV6's twin under the skin, the Hyundai Ioniq 5, comprised of 240 cars in the first batch, and a further 160 in a second allotment due early next year – all of which were (or will be) sold at fixed prices through Hyundai Australia's website.
The EV6, meanwhile, will be sold at negotiable prices through Kia's dealer network – like any other Kia model, irrespective of petrol, diesel or electric propulsion – with a "fair allocation will be worked out between metro and rural dealers," the brand told Drive.
The much-anticipated Kia EV6 electric SUV will arrive in Australia in limited numbers, with just 500 examples set for local showrooms across all of 2022.
I didn't see an Oceania section so I posted it here for any fellow Australian members or soon-to-be-members.
