In PA... Wasn't expecting till end Feb but got a call Tue and finally drove home my AWD GT-Line in Yacht Blue full vegan leather. Nervous wreck since I'm not used to the car yet. Paid window sticker MSRP, no forced pkgs/add-ons except for the $170 floor mats and $60 wheel locks which were in the window sticker. The blue is much nicer seeing in person, very sharp. Car actually drives much better than I expected, even coming from a Mercedes. Glad I went for this than the Ford MME. Happy camper!! My wife wont see me for the next few days :p BTW, my built date is 12/2021, so hopefully the heating issue is fixed.

I'm trying to find the same but in Snow White Pearl. And would prefer the black Suede and white interior but would take this option as well.

Can you please confirm that the GT-Line comes with "Electro-chromatic rear-view mirror with Homelink"? The Kia EV6 build function is available now on their website and they let you add the mirror as an extra accessory on the GT-Line but the features list says it's standard so I wanted to confirm.

Yes, I just programmed my Homelink opener. It even shows&tracks the up/down status of my garage door on the mirror, pretty fancy.

That is great! I hope you love it. Mine is supposedly weeks away and I go back an forth on whether I should get it. I mean do I need an EV or should I get in on one now?

Was in the same predicament. Then the dealer called few wks ago and said they had one coming in... couldnt resist so went for it! I was also trolling the Ford MME forums but glad I didnt go for that. No regrets after seeing and driving the EV6. I'm sure you'll love it. Given the ongoing chip shortage, I can prob still get a good price if I decide to sell it next year.

Went to Winn Kia to see about the FE I ordered. Ratings wise, they are one of the best in the area. After the song and dance of it being not ready, I waited through a few hours to prep it and saw the Matte Gray and thought was a nice color scheme set against the black. Liked the handling, acceleration, HUD, and adaptive cruise control. Having it sit next to Niro EV, the EV6 looked like it's replacement. Disappointed about the size. And then they hit me with the $75.5K plus tax and license fees. Round and round we went and they would not budge. So I walked. If you are really willing to pay that much, it's at Winn..

Me. No reason to visit a Kia dealer ever again.

Guess there are people out there willing to pay these sucking dealers. @jamisonl posted that his neighbor paid $70K for his EV6. I believe given a few wks and inventory sits idle, these dealers will be willing to sell.

Why were you disappointed about the size? Too big/small? I actually expected it to sit higher like a mid SUV but not. Front clearance is only slightly higher than regular sedan.

I’ve been driving a Bolt for 5 years and will never ever go back to an ICE. You will love an EV. My lease is up in one year and I will be an EV6.

Congratulations, Klingon.

I bought same in RWD on Thursday night. It came in yesterday and I pick it up this afternoon. That color is striking in the sun, better than the red or the white, which the dealer has. Along with the matte gray (not a fan).

If you want a great deal on a SV6, they are making deals at Towbin Kia in Henderson, NV. Close to airport in Las Vegas, its easy pickup. Took awhile to do paperwork, but otherwise a fabulous experience. Adonis will work a deal for you, he was great. They are number one dealer in Nevada, and easy to see why--they turn a lot of cars every day.

Drive safe and enjoy!
