Kia EV6 2022: Kia’s new electric hatchback.
Two weeks after the preliminary display, the full-fledged debut of the new electric hatchback Kia EV6 2022 took place.

The model is built on the E-GMP platform, which previously formed the basis of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SUV, which means that in terms of technology, the cars are as close to each other as possible.

The newcomer will be available with several versions of electric motors, rear and all-wheel drive, two traction battery options.

In addition to the basic version, customers will be offered the GT-Line and GT editions, which differ in external design and interior trim.

The assembly of electric cars is planned to be carried out only in South Korea, where orders for the model have already opened.

The cars will appear in showrooms of local dealers in July. Then the «six» will gradually begin expansion into foreign markets — in Europe, for example, the start of sales is scheduled for autumn.

By 2026, the Koreans expect to produce 11 more electric vehicles, which will be sold all over the world.

Body design

The appearance of the Kia EV6 battery hatchback is decided in the new style of Opposites United, playing on the contrast of nature and the creations of mankind.

The connection of the emotional with the rational is carried out with the help of simple lines and clear forms, creating a bold and memorable appearance.

At the front, the signature “tiger nose” has been replaced with a “digital tiger face” formed by the dynamic light pattern of the navigation lights. The width of the car is accentuated by the long air intake cutout at the bottom of the bumper.

In profile, the electric car demonstrates a typical «crossover» silhouette with short overhangs, a large center distance and a streamlined roof dome.

The heavily tilted C-pillars are fitted with a glossy black insert. In addition to the compact spoiler at the top of the tailgate below there is another wing, the edge of which is adorned with an eye-catching garland of tail lights.
