Kia’s new EV6 GT is a high-performance fully electric crossover created for the new era of sustainable mobility. Kia’s most powerful production car and a new milestone model for the brand, the EV6 GT combines exhilarating performance, world-class long-distance touring capabilities and ultra-fast charging technology. It is already available for reservations, and the deliveries will start at the end of 2022.

The EV6 GT’s expressive exterior design features a number of sporty touches and cosmetic enhancements that hint at the vehicle’s performance attributes. And if you enter the cabin, you will be received in a space focused on that sportiness, but very comfortable, which also has first-rate technology designed to meet the needs of the driver and passengers, further improving safety, connectivity and infotainment. that characterize a Kia.

Based on Kia’s advanced Global Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV6 GT dramatically improves performance compared to the standard dual-motor, all-wheel drive EV6 thanks to the installation of a new high-performance rear motor that delivers a remarkable 63% increase in total power.

And it is that the 585 hp and 740 Nm of torque allow this model to cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in a dizzying 3.5 seconds, which makes it the fastest production vehicle of Kia, and of the Group Hyundai, to date. In fact, highlighting that, despite all this potential, its autonomy is an impressive 424 kilometers and it can be charged from 10 to 80% in just 18 minutes.

Thus, in this model the new GT driving mode stands out, which automatically configures the electric motors, braking, steering, semi-active shock absorbers, e-LSD and the vehicle’s electronic stability control (ESC) systems in their configurations. more dynamic (Sport or Sport+), transforming the character and response of this sporty crossover and offering a very vibrant experience behind the wheel.

In GT mode, the ESC allows for a higher level of tire slip for a more intimate and tunable connection to the road, and if preferred, drivers can even disable the ESC system entirely to increase the potential for oversteer. To take this a step further and deliberately cause oversteer, a selectable Drift mode sends a greater proportion of power to the rear wheels, up to 100%, for unrestricted lateral action, while power can be distributed to the rear wheels. front again when exiting a curve.

To further enhance ease of use, the EV6 GT’s Integrated Charge Control Unit (ICCU) features a Vehicle-to-Device (V2D) function, which is capable of discharging power from the vehicle’s battery. The V2D function can supply up to 3.6 kW of power and is capable, for example, of running a 55-inch TV and an air conditioner simultaneously for more than 24 hours. The system can also charge another EV if needed.

muscular design

The design of the EV6 GT is really striking and innovative, as well as risky since we are not yet used to seeing such futuristic lines. Although if the electric future goes through this, we can have very high expectations.

Kia’s signature ‘Digital Tiger Face’ includes adaptive LED high-beam headlights and dynamic sequential turn indicators, while muscular fenders and a new clamshell hood with pronounced character lines give the EV6 GT a powerful look. . A new front bumper, unique to the GT, helps emphasize the vehicle’s width and a strong, stable stance.

The vehicle’s sporty character is also conveyed through a set of 21-inch five-spoke alloy wheels unique to the EV6 GT, while striking neon brake calipers indicate incredible stopping power. At the rear, an aerodynamic spoiler, bold LED taillights, and a unique bumper and diffuser complete the GT’s transformation.

Also comfortable and practical

The interior of the EV6 GT presents a very sporty image, but it is very comfortable and practical. Its seats provide full support during spirited driving, as well as over long distances for extended trips. Metal inserts inscribed with the ‘GT’ moniker and neon green piping add to the seats’ contemporary, technical look.

Dual curved 12.3-inch infotainment screens deliver all the driving, connectivity and entertainment functions in crisp clarity, and the simple form language of the wide screens and horizontally aligned dash give the interior a cozy, airy feel. high technology. An ergonomic two-spoke steering wheel includes a new dedicated GT Driving Mode selector, allowing drivers to easily access and personalize their driving experience.

Despite the EV6 GT’s compact exterior dimensions, its 2.90mm wheelbase and flat floor result in cabin space similar to that of many mid-size SUVs, providing exceptional long-haul capabilities. . The EV6 GT offers a smart, flexible interior design and plenty of in-cab storage, including 480 liters of boot space with the second row seats in place, ideal for family trips. With the second row seats folded down, storage capacity increases to 1,260 litres. It also features a front boot, which provides an additional 20 liters of storage.
