Rarely has a Kia model been as keenly anticipated as the EV6 GT, the brand's most powerful production model to date, which mixes extreme sports car driving dynamics with crossover and grand tourer features. And since the EV6's world premiere in March 2021, the EV6's triumph in the poll for Europe's "Car of the Year 2022" has boosted the number of future buyers who have been able to reserve the electric crossover in advance. As a result, no new reservations were allowed for the time being. That is changing immediately, as Kia has published the EV6 GT's equipment specifications and final price, formally launching sales. Buyers can now order the 430 kW (585 hp) model. The standard Kia EV6 GT starts at 69.990 euros and is decreased by the funding conditions in effect at the time of admission. The manufacturer's 7-year warranty covers the drive battery. As a result, the EV6 GT boasts one of Europe's most comprehensive manufacturer warranties for electric vehicles. Mass production will begin in September, and the first pre-orders will be sent to European customers by the end of the year.
"With the Kia EV6 GT electric car, Kia is setting new benchmarks in the crossover market". "Our brand is committed to becoming a top provider of sustainable mobility solutions. Kia's EV6 GT demonstrates that an all-electric crossover can provide driving enjoyment and exhilaration in unprecedented ways."
The nearly 4.70-meter-long, all-wheel-drive crossover is the fastest-sprinting model in the Hyundai Motor Group, to which Kia belongs. It is based on the new electric platform E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform). It has a top speed of 260 km/h and accelerates to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. The capacity to rev is the key to the EV6 GT's high-speed technology: The two motors on the front and back axles may reach speeds of up to 21,000 rotations per minute. The front engine was inherited from the EV6. The new, revolutionary rear engine features oil-cooled "hairpin" stator coils and a two-stage inverter with silicon carbide semiconductors, among other things (SiC).
