I've ordered the standard range RWD last week. It states that I can tow 750kgs. No further info about minimum SOC.

Congratulations @vinsend! Were you able to pick any specs/options for the EV6?
Thanks! I'm very happy and very much looking forward to september!

The options that were available on the base model were heatpump (€822,-) and metallic paint (€657,-). I chose the heatpump because that'll make quite a difference in Dutch winters and Snow White Pearl.

About the towbar: I contacted my dealer today to ask if I needed to choose a towbar in advance, but they don't have knowledge any of the accessoires yet so that is still tbd.

Good choice with the snow pearl! The EV6's design really suits it. Have you owned EVs before or is this your first?

Currently driving a Leaf 2018 (lease ends in september) so great step up and awesome timing :)

The Leaf is a great car but the 40kWh battery, 50kW charging and lack of thermal battery management are a bit of a hassle as we regularly drive about 380km (~240 miles) roundtrip to family. We're in The Netherlands though, so blessed with a very good charging infrastructure (lots of 350kW stations as well, so real nice for the EV6).

Going offtopic (sorry), but have you ordered?

I have also ordered an EV6 (GT Line AWD in matte grey).
Also because of the towing capacity of 1600Kg so I can pull my caravan (max. 1500Kg).
We can't select a towbar yet.
So I guess it won't be an automatic one.
