I was scrolling through some of the EV6 Korean tags on Instagram and came across this.

After the first couple of photos in the carrousel - you can see what looks like a matte finish on the interior trim pieces that so far have all been piano black (at least in the reviews and videos I鈥檝e seen from come from Europe)

now this isn鈥檛 the protective white film we鈥檝e seen during the car shipping.

thoughts?

So the non GT-Line trims get physical buttons and plain matte plastic (and no ambient interior light) whilst GT-Line models have touch sensitive buttons for the heated seats, piano black trim and ambient lighting.

There might be a difference between Air and Earth models too. I believe the Irish Earth trim level has piano black trim. Not sure about the UK鈥檚 Air trim level.

I really don't understand the concerns about piano black in the interior. My Infiniti has it, and one quick wipe with a dry microfiber towel makes it shine perfectly.

And if you don't like it, I'm sure a decal or maybe even vinyl wrap might go over it. A detailer could probably advise.

The capacitive buttons, on the other hand... Not appropriate for cars. Ever. IMHO

I just remember parts of my stinger with the piano black always being smudged. Also in some of the reviews in the EV6 - the centre console of the review units already had scratches.

I鈥檝e considered getting it either wrapped or nano coated. But first we need to get the car here in Canada.
