As per the title really. I have had 2 test drives and have not been able to actually experience it.
I have found cruise control and Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA in Kia-speak) but not speed limiter where it prevents the car going over the speed set, or (ideally) the posted speed limit.
Can anybody who has their car actually confirm if it does exist (and how to set it if possible)?

This from the manual - I don't have my car yet so can't confirm.

Thanks very much for that, I didn't try the press and hold, so that would be where I went wrong.
Doesn't look like it links to the speed limit and sets it at that, but at least it appears to have a limiter of sorts, so that's a positive.

It's the HDA (highway drive assist). Set your cruise AT the current speed limit. HDA will appear in the dash. It will then adjust the cruise speed WITH the nav speed limit as it changes.

Be interesting to see how well that HDA works in reality; my experience from the 2019 Stinger is the road sign camera is pretty good at picking up the correct limit IF it can see the signs (there are several in my area which are hidden by bushes etc!) Then again, Stinger doesn't have HDA and obviously it's 4+ year old tech in mine, so I'm hoping for good things from the EV6.

It can get confused. Some local mountain passes have pairs of back-to-back signs for 65 MPH limit, and left-lane minimum 55 MPH. It doesn't recognize the fine print and only sees the 55. Same thing for truck-specific speed limits coming down the pass.

I just discovered the speed limiter feature this morning by accident. Was using HDA and after getting off the freeway, I accidently long pressed the drive assist button and saw it change to "limit" and 30mph. Upon accelerating, it started to slow as it got to 30mph and then wouldn't accelerate past. But found if I pressed the accelerator beyond a certain point I could get it to go. Read the link above in post 2 for more info. Doubt I'd use the feature often. but neat anyway.

Instead of the speed limiter I would have loved to have an ordinary low tech CC when the SCC fails, which it does with only a thin layer of watery ice/snow on the front radar. I know that from personal experience. I don鈥檛 know why they removed it when other Kia models have it.
i agree i find driving EVs at a consistent speed is hard at high highway speeds. My radar froze up and i was like a yo yo on my speed

Yes. When you are used to CC/SCC it鈥檚 hard to suddenly be without it. First time it happened to me I pulled in and removed the snow/ice. 5 minutes later it was there again :cautious:. And yes of course on the highway it鈥檚 even more problematic.

Please clarify something for me as I am still a little confused regarding the intelligent speed limit mode. My mach e that I had, would read the sign and then go that speed. Some on the forum say the ev6 definitely have that same feature and others on the forum say definitely not. Maybe on the higher trim? Does anyone know for sure? thanks
