The only drawback of this model will in fact only be the price for North American customers. If it is anything close to the conversion figures, as shown above, this car will be dead in the water once it arrives here. Shoppers will naturally migrate to the Tesla 3 or Y or even the "smaller model" planned at $25K if the EV6 is too expensive.

Actual USD MSRP will not reflect a straight currency conversion. Cars in the UK are typically around 25-30% more expensive than in the USA (at the very least there is a 20% VAT). Adjusting for that puts the base price under $45k (listed MSRP before sales tax). Though there can be additional market differences.

US pricing of the Kia EV6 will start just under $35,000 before tax incentives.

That's a number I pulled after comparing the UK base price to similarly priced Kia models sold in both the US and UK. It actually works out to be $30,000 but I factored in the 77 kWh battery pack (Kia won't sell the 58 kWh version in the US initially), pricing of other EVs it will rival (ex. the 77 kWh Volkswagen ID.4), and how it needs to be positioned among other Kia models.

I hope you're right. I was told that it will sell just above the Kona EV (150 kW electric motor w/201 hp) which has an MSPR of $37,190, so maybe $40,000. I also guess the EV6's 77 KWh is strong than the 150kW unit despite having a larger number. Either way it needs to sell at a lower price than Tesla or it will be eaten alive.

The standard-range EV6 (58 kWh battery) comes with a 125 kW motor. Expected to be slightly slower than the Kona EV.
The long-range EV6 (77 kWh battery) comes with a 168 kW motor. Expected to be a little faster than the Kona EV. Also ~17% more expensive than standard-range.
The long-range AWD EV6 has 239 kW of power. This provides a very good level of performance (0-60 mph in ~5 sec), though it's ~27% more expensive than the standard-range model.

If the base is $40k (just above Kona EV and Niro EV) then expect +$7k for long range battery and additional +$4k for AWD.

Wow, that's out of my league. However, most legacy automakers will eventually lower their prices. A midlevel Ford Mustang Mach -E w/ long-range is $2,000 below sticker. Let's not forget this competes against its own siblings, Genesis GV60 and Hyundai IONIQ 5

There's also the option of having the Heat Pump or not at least on the GT-Line. My dealer told be the HP option was £900

UK folks get two S varients, interesting. So far the prices look kind of out of my league for me.
Remember that prices in Europe are always much higher. They include VAT and in general are priced higher before VAT.

That being said I hope the cheaper AWD version is between $45-50k. They need to price it below the Model Y Dual motor long range.

Yes, I agree. It needs to be much more inexpensive or people will flock over to Tesla. I hope the AWD is $40K.

The VW ID.4 Pro AWD with destination is a little under $45k. I would be surprised if it is cheaper than that even with a smaller battery.

Would be nice to see the 58 kWH battery with the 232 HP AWD in either the EV6 or the Ioniq 5 in the US but I don’t see that being an option at least initially.

Being that KIA and Hyundai still sell cars the "old fashion way" maybe there's a chance to save some money after the car has been out for a few months. Of course, you might want to reserve one in advance. Ford is advertising in some areas, $2K off their new Mustang Mache E.
