Kia Reveals US-Spec EV6
US deliveries begin in early 2022.
Kia has revealed the US version of the new EV6 crossover. Packing up to 576 horsepower, the EV6 that will go on sale in the US will be available in a number of different trims.
Firstly, two battery packs will be available. The base model will come with rear-wheel drive and a 58kWh battery pack. Exact range for this entry-level model was not disclosed. Moving up in the range, you can spec a 77.4kWh pack with the same rear-wheel drive setup. Again, no exact range figures but Kia has stated around 300 miles per charge will be achievable on multiple versions of the EV6.
The AWD dual-motor configuration will only be available with the larger 77.4kWh battery pack. The standard AWD EV6 produces 313 horsepower and sprints from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Meanwhile the top-of-the-line EV6 GT comes with 576 horsepower and can go from 0-60 mph in a supercar-fast 3.5 seconds according to Kia.
Unfortunately US pricing is still unknown. That said, we do know how much the EV6 will cost in other markets. As stated above, first US deliveries will take place in early 2022. However, the range topping EV6 GT will not arrive stateside until late 2022.
