Hi all, 1st post. I’m between the EV6 and Mustang Mach E and I’m very curious about pricing comparisons for the GT models specifically. I know the first Ed EV6 is 58.5k, does anyone have any insight into what the GT might wind up being?

also, where is Kia motor group at in terms of the federal rebate? Id imagine they’ve sold alot of Niro/Kona EV’s. wonder how much room there is before the tax incentive starts to phase out.

The GT will be available in late 2022.
I'll be happy if I can afford the GT LINE. KIA is not providing any updates on pricing for all non-FE models at the moment. The same is true for the Hyundai IONIQ 5.

Thanks for the reply. There seems to be somewhere people are getting quarterly figures on how many elgible EV's a company has made to track how close they are to 200k but I don't know where they're getting it.

I thought I read someplace they were thinking of getting rid of the cap to allow the adoption of EVs to go faster.

Kia is nowhere close to their cap. The Niro and Soul have only been offered in select markets so their volume has been very low. I'd guess that we still have 150,000 federal tax credits available to Kia still. That's a lot of EV's and should last for 5 years or so at least.

As for the pricing, I'd expect the Gt to be about a $5k bump. So, after destination and an accessory or two, you're going to have a price of around $65k (or about $5k less than the Mach-eScape).

Unsure about the pricing myself. However, KIA has full 7500 rebate right now as they only car that is available for it is the Niro I think.

The below is apparently from May 2021 in the UK. Is it unusual for Kia/Hyundai or any other manufacturer to refrain from supplying pricing months after initially taking reservations? You would have thought they would want to obtain orders as soon as they can or is the supply line so uncertain that they really don't know what to charge or when they can deliver?

What’s confusing you? Those prices are set in the UK. It shows from and to prices as they are the minimum and maximum depending on what spec and options you choose :)

Not confused at all as to the pricing in the UK. Trying to understand why Kia released its pricing in the UK 5 months ago but has not done so here in the US (with the exception of the FE). They took pre-orders for 1500 vehicles in June, but have not priced other vehicles , indicated what they will cost or when their order book will open, while stating that the vehicle will be available in January 2022 (and the Ioniq 5 is similar with an earlier introduction date).. Seems strange to me, but I was inquiring of those who have inside knowledge (MurlinatoR is a Kia dealer in the Midwest).

The dealer network here will work with KIA on what comes standard and what will be options and what is in a package, as well as the price. In addition, I think they are also waiting to see how the government incentives will pan out. This EV is being priced close to a Tesla and while they are marketing it as a CUV, it is more closer in size and space to the Model 3, than the Y. The US market isn't as big on adoption of thee vehicles yet and KIA is still, in some people's mind not a big name manufacturer, or a desirable product for a lot of folks.

Just hang in there, the prices will come out for those vehicles when they are ready to release them. I suspect we should get some more info in November or December, if not earlier. There will be some press event first and then prices will get announced.

The main reason is because EV's here in the US are such a niche that it doesn't really matter to most what the prices are. LOL

In markets like EU and AUS and KR where EV's are have much more traction, Kia is more active in pricing, trims, and such because they're going to consume the large majority of supply for a while.

The only version expected to be available in January '22 is the FE ... and that has an MSRP. Pricing will come for the other models but likely those won't be available until sometime after the FEs. Think @MurlinatoR made a semi-educated guess of March/April in another thread.

I get it and am trying to parse out from the current information a realistic estimate of the timing. The website has "Vehicle shipping anticipated to start January 2022" and that could be limited to the FE, as you say. I am just curious as to what is a realistic timeline from announcing pricing to delivery and was hoping that the UK experience might provide a benchmark. Probably not. Based on all that I am seeing and the uncertainty on the supply lines, I am leaning toward a more pessimistic viewpoint into the middle of next year and hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

I argue since the Mach-E delivery timeline is 28+ weeks and often closer to 8 months you should order one now and cancel when you have changed your mind (I.e you test rode the EV6 and the delivery is within 3 months).

Same with the EV6. Order on the first day and cancel when you have a decision. Neither car will be available to you until late summer or early fall.
