Our top award-winning first dedicated electric vehicle is packed full of innovative technology, features and style.

  • New ultra-fast battery charging

    Unique to Kia. The world's first multi-channel system capable of fast charging at 800V and 400V without a separate controller makes it possible to recharge your car battery from 10 to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes. Giving you more time to spend doing the things you love.

  • Innovative vehicle-to-load

    Boosting outdoor adventure opportunities is the EV6’s vehicle-to-load function that seriously improves charging flexibility. An Integrated Charging Control Unit enables up to 3.6kW of power to be discharged from the vehicle’s battery via a simple adapter that turns the exterior charging plug into a useful power socket, so you can power other electricals wherever you are.

  • Vehicle to vehicle

    Similar to the EV6's handy vehicle-to-load feature that enables you to charge electrical appliances, like torches or hair dryers, on the go, its vehicle-to-vehicle 'skill' transfers battery energy to another vehicle. So if you ever need to charge a second future-focused electric vehicle, you can. With ease.

  • Heat pump technology

    Kia's next-generation heat-pump-based thermal management system allows the EV6 to retain 80% of its optimal range, even down to -7 degrees celsius. The same thermal management technology works with the fast-charging system to reduce the harmful impact of that on the battery's lifespan.

<br><br>New e-GMP platform

New e-GMP platform

e-GMP is a dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) platform. BEVs based on e-GMP can give a powerful range of over 500km on a full charge (WLTP) and be charged up to 80% in 18 minutes. Plus, its components optimise driving dynamics and safety, and maximise space.

Alloy wheels

The alloy options on the EV6 are some of the most striking we've ever produced. Each alloy is specific to a grade.

  • The Kia EV6 Air

    19" alloy wheels available as standard on our baseline model. A clean, simple yet impactful design, these carbon fibre alloys add to the high performance feel with a high-end finish.

  • GT-Line

    Style and substance. Similar to the Air alloys, these 19" wheels come in a darker moodier tone to add a more premium edge.

  • GT-Line S

    Going full sports mode, these 20" alloys break from the mould and create a rapid effect when in motion.


The EV6 is packed with features to make driving a joy

  • Active sound design

    Active Sound Design lets you choose between unique sounds that adjust to different RPMs and vehicle speeds (grade dependent).

  • Panoramic curved display

    Not only beautiful, the integrated dual 12.3" panoramic curved displays offer a truly immersive experience through high-definition navigation with minimal controls for an unobstructed driving experience.

  • Auto flush handles

    The EV6's flush door handles pop out when you approach the car. Not only do they look great but they improve the aerodynamics too.

  • Wireless phone charging

    The charging pad in the front centre console lets you charge compatible mobile phones fuss-free and wirelessly. Gives up to 15 watts of power.


There's so much to discover, from a high gloss black beltline and door mirrors to automatic headlight control and LED daytime running lights.

  • Distinctive design

    With an eye-catching muscular-looking design, every detail, big and small, it creates a distinctively sporty look.

  • Dynamic lighting

    Forming part of the vehicle's digital 'Tiger Face’, daytime running lights display a sleek, modern appearance, including a ‘sequential’ dynamic light pattern.

  • Panoramic sunroof

    Airflow adds to the sense of openness. The EV6's roomy dimensions seem to expand with the wide tilt sliding sunroof. It takes full advantage of the roof geometry, offering a broader opening for light and breezes (grade dependent).

  • Smart tailgate

    Hands full? For added convenience, the EV6 features Kia’s Smart Power Tailgate. By pocketing EV6’s Smart Key and approaching the rear of the vehicle, the system will recognise the key and open the tailgate automatically, allowing easy and super-convenient access to the boot.

Stay significantly safer on the road — the EV6 is equipped with the very latest in driver assistance technology.

  • Highway Driving Assist 2

    Highway Driving Assist 2 makes motorway driving a breeze. When engaged, it maintains you in your chosen lane, and adapts your speed based on the limit in force, the vehicle ahead of you or the curvature of the road. Turn your signal on and it helps you change lane. It also steers you away from vehicles beside you if they are drifting too close. (Grade dependent).

  • Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)

    Take all the hassle out of parking. The Kia EV6 will park itself autonomously, whether or not you're in it. Using surround view cameras and ultrasonic sensors, it can highlight a parking space of a suitable size and automatically steer itself into the space, with automatic control of accelerator, brakes and gearshift.

  • Head-Up Display (HUD) with AR

    Advanced onboard tech smoothly integrates you and your EV6 via the head-up display system with Augmented Reality technology – an offering normally reserved for premium brand. See the navigation and other important driving information superimposed over the road ahead on your windscreen. Seamless communication between GPS, the onboard camera and HUD systems project turn-by-turn directions 7.5m on the road ahead to keep you looking forward at all times. (Grade dependent).

  • Intelligent Front-lighting System (IFS)

    For the very best levels of illumination and safety the EV6 features the Intelligent Front-lighting System (IFS) that enables each LED to light independently. The new technology lets you travel with a permanent high beam, without risk of dazzling oncoming traffic.

In order to achieve the maximum charging speed, EV6 must use an 800 volt electric vehicle charger that delivers at least 240kW of electricity. Actual charging speed and charging time may be influenced by the battery temperature and weather conditions.



Range figures are determined according to the standardized EU measurement procedure (WLTP). Individual driving style and other factors, such as speed, outside temperature, topography and the use of electricity-consuming devices/units, have an influence on the real life range and can possibly reduce it.
