Kia EV6: the new electric is a revolution of style and technology

Kia EV6

Kia's new stylistic course will debut on EV6: an electric car that will bring the Korean brand into the era of next-generation mobility. The Korean company has published the first images: the choice of breaking with respect to what is offered today by the vehicle range is evident. The well-known Tiger Nose grille, the signature of every Kia, disappears, in its place a cleaner and simpler front. One cannot fail to notice the renewed Kia logo.

The edges define the front area, with large, sharply shaped LED headlights and dynamic direction indicators. The side wheel arches are very wide and the roof seems almost suspended, as the black pillars also define the contours of the windows and windshield. The front area, on the other hand, is dominated by an LED line that extends over its entire width.

The rear window is inclined and incorporates a spoiler, resulting in a very attractive line. The appearance is therefore very particular but in line with an offer that is increasingly attentive to proposing cutting-edge design solutions. A discourse that is also applied inside the car, where simplicity and clean image dominate.

The screen of the infotelematics system is oriented towards the driver, the two-spoke steering wheel returns an idea of ​​lightness and the gear selector in the shape of a wheel saves space. Habitability thanks to the use of the E-GMP platform should be very good. From a technical point of view, the new Kia EV6 will have a 73 kWh battery pack for a total range of 500 km. The car was driven by two electric motors for a total power of 312 hp.

Kia just gave us our first full look at its sleek new EV6 electric car

Kia released the first full images of the interior and exterior design of its new electric car — the EV6 — on Monday.

The images were shown off ahead of the electric car's online world premiere later this month.

The car has a crossover-inspired design and represents the next generation of electric cars for Kia. The EV6 has a sleek and more rounded design that rides lower to the ground than other Kia cars.

Kia says the car's design represents the company's shift toward electrification.

'We strongly believe EV6 is a compelling and relevant model for the new EV market,' Karim Habib, Kia's senior vice president and head of global design center, said in a press release. 'With EV6 we aimed to create a distinctive, impactful design by using a combination of sophisticated, high-tech features on pure and rich volumes, while providing a unique space as a futuristic EV.'

The EV6 was built on its parent company Hyundai's Electric-Global Modular Platform. The car is the second one to be built based off the platform, after Kia unveiled its Ioniq 5 in February.

The car's interior is simple but high-tech. The inside boasts a curved high-definition audio visual and navigation screen.

The E-GMP platform helps give drivers and passengers more space, according to Kia. The slim seats and curved screen, which is designed to give the driver an immersive view, adds to the car's spacious interior.

'We want our products to deliver an instinctive and natural experience that improves the daily lives of our customers,' Habib said.

Kia said the company based the car's design off its new design philosophy, 'Opposites United.' 

The car company has not yet released any specs for the EV6, but the car will likely be similar to the Ioniq 5, as they were both built of the E-GMP platform.
