I reserved my EV6 first edition,
But now I am looking to find a list of all options the car will have. It says on Kia’s website ( it features a unique combination of our best features ) .From what I can figure the price of a first edition is going to be very close to the price of the GT line S all-wheel-drive which is almost fully loaded
which has ventilated seats and a few other goodies . It would be nice to be able to compare the first edition to the GT LINE S.
For the same price I would be willing to wait for a vehicle with more options if that was the case.

Hi Jack, welcome and happy Monday!

The First Edition will be fully loaded except for the high power front motor. Combined HP will be 320 and torque of 446lbft. She's been clocked in EU at 4.8 0-60mph which is faster than a stock Stinger.

I have attached a US Spec Sheet from Kia for your review.

Of course!!!

Most of what you see in research of EU and KR versions will shop up here. There will be a handful, of course, of things that won't make it here because Kia is VERY attentive to what they release in US vehicles to make sure that the brand image continues to grow.

Especially once you factor in the savings of the tax credit!

Interesting, here in Sweden we dont have GT-Line S, only GT-Line. Wonder what the difference is :D

While still growing the brand, It seems KIA still doesn't bring things over that consumers would want. From what I have heard, the dealer association makes the decision on what comes over. Items such as 1 touch up/down on all windows on the Optima didn't make it to US market, thought they would have done better with the Stinger, nope. Canada got the loaded GT2 (US nomenclature) AWD for @ $50k Canadian, we got it minus the 360 cameras, heated rear seats and some other items, for $52k US. A currency conversion shows Canada got a really good deal on that car.

At the point, for the EV6, they should really have laminated glass all around to cut down on the outside noise, as well as tires that aid with reducing road noise, while also performing great. Too many times they have chosen efficiency tires that suck and causes the traction control and braking system to work overtime to keep things in line. We will see what they do for the US market in the next few months.

I have complete faith that they'll hit it out of the park just like on the Telluride!

I was doing my weekly digging and came across what seems to be a bit more detailed and possibly internally spec sheet.

Unsure which market it's from, but highly likely its from the UK market given its being released there shortly. [https://www.kia.com/content/dam/kwcms/kme/uk/en/assets/vehicles/EV6/Specification/Kia EV6 Spec Sheet May 2021.pdf]

See attached.
