Lew Later shares his thoughts on the EV6 following its debut. There's a thumbs up on the front end but they're not as sold on the back end.

Totally subjective. Very different looks; I like them both. I’ll be interested to see the difference in drag coefficients.

Welcome to the forum @4to6! Do you have any preference so far for one over the other?

Likewise. I think Kia did a great job.
Any design improvements you think they can make?

I do like the reclining seats in the Hyundai and I’m not sure why Kia put the shift control in the center console. Waste of space when it could go up on the steering column like the Ioniq or the ID.4. We’ll see what other quirks it has after the reveal. With the sloping roof I’m concerned about storage capacity in the back but I know that improves the airflow and efficiency. That’s very important as any EV I buy needs to get 300+ miles on a charge.

As far as range goes, the EV6 RWD with the long range battery is apparently listed with a 316 mile range (WLTP). We'll have to see how it does with EPA testing.
