Kia EV6

The facelifted EV6 has been unveiled by Kia. Kia’s redesigned EV now has an updated front end, a few extra amenities, and an altered cabin.

What’s new about the facelifted Kia EV6?

The EV6 receives a revised front end design first. The angular LED daytime running lamps have replaced the traditional headlight arrangement; altogether, the headlamp design is similar to other Kia EVs, primarily the larger EV9 flagship EV SUV and the EV3 tiny EV SUV concept. Along with other revisions, the front bumper and lower grill of the EV6 facelift also received a modern makeover.

With the exception of these modifications and the newly styled alloy wheels (available in 19- or 20-inch versions, depending on the market), the EV6’s external design hasn’t changed much. The rear design changes are restricted to small redesigns of the bumper and taillights.

The infotainment system and digital instrument cluster are housed in a curved panoramic screen located inside the EV6 facelift. With the addition of a fingerprint scanner to the two-spoke steering wheel, registered drivers can now start the vehicle without a key. There will be over-the-air updates available for several aspects, including the main electrical controls.

The updated head-up display and digital rearview mirror come standard with the facelift, which also includes an AI-powered navigation system found in more recent Genesis models. With graphic overlays, this system takes advantage of the front camera.

The EV6 makeover has a revised battery configuration on the mechanical front. The 84 kWh battery from Hyundai Motor Group has been added, taking the place of the 77.4 kWh pack from the car prior to the facelift. From 475 km to 494 km, the EV6 facelift RWD with 19-inch wheels will now deliver. Kia disclosed this range statistic, which is derived from the test cycle conducted in the Korean market. According to reports, the new battery can charge from 10% to 80% capacity in 18 minutes and supports 350 kW DC charging.

A 225hp and 350Nm motor power the EV6 RWD lineup, while dual-motor versions deliver 320hp and 605Nm. According to Kia, the EV6 facelift also includes frequency-selective dampers, which enhance ride comfort.

Both the EV9 born-EV flagship SUV and the all-new Carnival MPV, which are anticipated to be released in the upcoming months, are being introduced by Kia India this year.
