Hi all,

Looking to get an EV under 45.000 euros, as that would be eligible for a government grand of about 3300 euros. Unfortunately that limits my options for the EV6 to one:

The RW 58 kWh version in Runway Red, no extra options, nothing. I could live with a lot of this, but the red bothers me. That and the fact that I can't find any interior pictures or video's that have the basic fabric + vegan leather seats. I only find full vegan leather or suede seats online.

I would've liked the ambient lighting but can live without it. Changing the color to anything other than red would effectively cost me 4100 euros, as that makes the price jump to just 300 euros over the 45k limit.

I can't find any images or videos anywhere of the 58 kWh Standard Edition. Even the Kia site doesn't it show it in the visualizer, as the wheel arches are not glossy black on the standard trim...

Is that the case in The Netherlands? I was under the impression that the standard edition (regardless of battery size) has the glossy black wheel arch trim (as well as gloss black front and rear bumper trims). Only the GT-Line and GT models have colour-keyed wheel arch trims.

Nope, in the Netherlands the 58kWh Standard has wheel arches and bumpers trims that are plain black plastic and also no glossy black in the interior.

You'll have to wait until they start hitting the dealers. The press and advert cars are typically the top of the line versions, not the lower trims. I remember prior to getting the Stinger in the US, there were no press videos on the 2.0T versions. When the Korean presenters got a 2.0T, it was loaded up like a GT, we got one in at our local dealer in VA and it was a 2.0T with everything the 2018 GT2 version we ended up with had and more. We were all surprised when the actual 2.0T came in and it didn't offer an option to get those features. I was going to get my other option the A5 Sportback with the 2.0T. I drove it, it felt a bit better than the Stinger's 2.0T but was priced higher than the top trim Stinger, so I went back to KIA and got a Stinger GT2 AWD. The economy wasn't the best but the fun factor was awesome!

Hang in there, in a few more weeks, you will have more choices and you might change your mind.

Can't wait that long. To get a government grand (3300 euros) I have to order January 3rd.

Afraid no dealer will have one by then.

No I ordered a Plus 77 kWh beginning of November, the 58 was too much of a compromise for me.
But something went wrong with my order so might still cancel it.
