The Canadian version of the US FE process itself was amazingly amateurish. It's a good thing for Kia the product looks so promising. :)

I'll spare the reservation challenges because it would just come across as complaining. But unlike the US FE, we get no bonus perk and have zero information on the car except the colours they think might maybe be available (we had to pick our top 3 colour choices) and that it's going to be a "GT-Line" and be coming in "Spring 2022." No pricing, no specs, no features, nothing. Don't even know if they'll be AWD.

My dealer says the cars are conservatively due in May and pricing will be announced April (yikes) I'm hopeful they'll let us know sooner 🤞

I'm guessing that they will mostly be AWD. The Stinger is only available in AWD I believe.

Kia has confirmed the first Canadian batch will be AWD:

The brand released a limited number of initial production units of the 2022 EV6 (optional GT Line package) long-range AWD and customers quickly secured the available units within 25 minutes.
Impressive feat of selling all in 25 minutes given the website was basically down for the first 15 of that 😄

For most mfrs Canadian models differ enough from US models that you probably can't read too much into standard vs. available equipment, but the interior 120V plug for V2L is nice to see confirmed and I imagine will be in both markets.

  1. Full LED rear lamps with built-in turn signal function, standard on all models
How are people reading this?

I’m reading this as the red indicators, like the US spec, that’s part of the taillights. I prefer the int’l version with amber indicators in the chrome hockey stick area.

I think they may forgo the sequential type amber lights for blinking lights. Reason being is regulations here in North America require a predefined amount of area to be lit.
You can slightly see the reflection of amber in the early part of this US Spec EV6 b-roll video:

Yeah but I was hoping since Canada allows sequential indicators, that we will follow the international specification. (Ditto Matrix LED)

Oh well.
