Kia EV6 launched in India: All you need to know about it

Kia India has finally launched the EV6 electric vehicle in the country.

The EV6 is Kia’s first and most premium offering in the country, which has been accoladed with multiple international awards since its inception. Starting at INR 59.95Lakhs, the vehicle will be sold exclusively through 15 select dealerships across 12 cities in India. Deliveries for the AWD variant to commence come September.

Only 100 EV6 vehicles will be imported, and only as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) for 2022. In fact, Kia says it has already received 355 bookings for the same; over 3.5 times its allocation for 2022.

Kia’s latest offering will be available in India in two variants and five colour options – GT-Line and GT-Line AWD. Based on the company’s EV-only Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV6 comes fully equipped with innovative technologies like a multi-charging system, and the world’s first charging system “that operates with both 400V and 800V chargers without the need of an additional controller”, whatever that is.

Battery and Charging in the Kia EV6:

Being an EV, charging time is a major point of concern, and Kia doesn’t disappoint in that regard either. 10% to 80% top up takes a measly 18 minutes using a 350KW charger and a single charge gets you a claimed 528kms of range (WLTP cycle) on the long-range 77.4 kWh battery pack RWD model.

The car also gets the latest generation of Kia’s Smart regenerative braking system that recuperates kinetic energy lost during braking to maximize driving range and efficiency. Among the many regen modes, ‘i-PEDAL’ driving mode allows the car to harvest the maximum amount of energy from its brakes while giving an option for one pedal driving.

Kia says it will be installing 150kW chargers across all EV dealerships added for customer convenience. The EV6 will come standard with a charger of a peak power output of 22KW.

Performance and Safety:

The floor mounted battery provides all the pulling grunt to two motors in the 4WD version producing 320ps of power and to one motor in the 2WD version producing 229ps of power. The 0-100kmph dash takes an EV-typical 5.2 seconds. Torque figures come up to a sports car-level 605Nm. A lower centre of gravity also means Kia claims its car to be an “absolute pleasure to drive”.

Another standout realm for the EV6 is its safety. Kia has made 8-airbags as standard in their newest offering with multiple passive safety features in addition to a surround view system. Cherry on the cake, the EV6 gets a ton of tech in the form of an ADAS system including Lane Keep assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist and much more.

EV6 Side

The EV6 will come with a warranty of 3 years, unlimited kilometres. Kia will also provide an additional battery coverage for 8 years / 1,60,000 kilometres.

At INR 60L, the Kia EV6 now goes up against the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the recently launched BMW i4 in its segment, the latter starting at INR 69.90L. Upcoming completion also include its cousin, the Hyundai Ioniq 5.
