Hi, Niall,

So EMG are a Kia dealership I think. Have you and your team had training on the EV6? There will, I'm sure, be a whole load of technical questions coming your way.

I'll kick off... when is Apple Car play going wireless on the EV6 and will that be an over the air update or a dealer update?

Hi! I have a few questions (especially since we have yet to see it in North America)
  • Is the leather wrapped steering wheel real leather or “vegan” leather?
  • What’s the H point (I don’t need an exact measurement but an approximation such as a 5’10” person may need to step up/down to the vehicle or can slide right in)
  • What is the minimum ground clearance of the EV6?

I'll give it a go. Thanks so much for your contributions.
  1. Can iPedal be enabled permanently? Or you do you have to use the paddle shifters every time you turn on the car?
  2. Will the driver assist functions handle stop and go traffic? At least the accelerator.
  3. Will the EV6 set your driver profile based on the key? So, I can use iPedal or whatever and my wife can set 0 regen.
  4. Matrix headlights are not legal in the US, but I assume it will do auto high-beams still?
  5. Does it have rain sensing wipers?
  6. Will there be a way to use the external cameras to record video?

Hello Niall. Can you think of any reason why Kia made the decision to put manually operated front seats in the ev6 (GT variant)? After all, the Stinger is a high performance car that comes with power operated bucket seats, so why not the ev6 gt?

My biggest reason not to buy an EV6, although I love the car: the software and hardware for the infotainment system.

The infotainment system feels like going back in time several years. It is slow, real slow.

Will Kia support it for at least 7 years with updates to improve it? Or will all focus go to the new Nvidia drive system?

Is route planning going to come soon with charging stops along the route? Maybe they forgot you need the charge this car at some point 🤣


Is wireless android auto and apple Carplay coming?
Will we get widescreen Android Auto soon?
Will we be able to see Waze or Google Maps on the main screen at some time? It is a big screen but it is not really being used as there isn't much info on it.

So yeah, I was about to buy one but glad I did a few test drives. The car, minus some small gripes, is super. But it feels like a 2022 car with 2012 software.

Hi Jon,

Yes we are a Kia dealership based in Thetford Norfolk. We have all had some training which was done on our event day back in July however most of our knowledge is all of us being curious and interested in the car. We regularly just go out and test things so we can offer better experiences to our customers and because we think the car is really cool!

In terms of apple car play wireless it's not available from launch and the most we have been told is it's most likely going to be implemented in 2022 though which quarter hasn't been confirmed. As to over air update or dealership update again we haven't been told but it was a goal of the EV6 to increase use of over the air updates but we will have to see. Once I know more I will update you all.

Hi Andy,
We do offer Kia fitted dashcams using Kia's partners however as of the moment the cameras on the car cannot be used as a sort of 'sentry' mode like the Tesla's but we could see in later updates this become possible.

Hi Fustje,
I don't know of any roof racks being available as options when you purchase the car however after entering the car into Thule it seems to have a few options however they look unavailable to buy at the moment so much still be in development.

I did see a YouTube clip a little while ago talking about the Dash Cam facility, there was a slot for a memory card in the glove box.
I have searched but have been unable to locate the video again.
It would really be good if the hardware could be sourced to allow the car to use the factory fit camera as a dash cam.
I will temporarily use my exiting Rove Dash Cam, but not sure it will look neat just being stuck on the windscreen. If I can get the KIA camera operating, I may just use my Rove camera for rear use.
I could also do with info on the fuses, I can‘t see anything in the on line manual. I should add, I don’t get my car until later today

Hi Gordon,
I will check for the memory card slot, but at the moment I haven't had information about such thing being possible at the moment.

In terms of fuses what information would you like?

Niall, do you know the price (ball park) for fitting a tow hook and are they readily available from Kia dealerships?

Unfortunately not as of yet, the only thing we have received as a dealer ship so far is a brochure detailing the optional extras. According to our parts manager Kia is yet to launch the accessories for the EV6 and thus you cannot order or get quotes for the parts at the moment.

@KIA_Genius_Niall Can you tell us something about maintenance interval? An EV shouldn't need service as often as a petrol car. Still Kia says it needs service every year or 15.000 km? That is more than a petrol car. And what does this maintenance include? I want to buy an EV because it should have less maintenance?
