Two potent powertrains deliver the Kia EV6’s exhilarating performance, ranging from quick to even quicker. The 226bhp RWD single motor model is ideal for the day-to-day with 350Nm of electrified torque and 0-62mph in a hot hatch baiting 7.3 seconds. The 321bhp AWD dual motor model ups the ante with 605Nm of torque and 0-62mph dispersed in a storming 5.2sec.
But for as much as outright pace has its purpose, long-distance range will be a major consideration for any company car driver munching through the motorway miles. And the good news is that with the EV6’s headline grabbing 328-mile range** (WLTP), you won’t have to worry about the next top-up in any rush.And when the time eventually comes to put your Kia EV6 on charge, the 800V rapid multi-charge system will get you from 10 to 80 per cent in as little as 18 minutes*.
Time to talk BIK rates: With a starting price of £44,195 for the entry-level Air model, a 20% taxpayer can expect to pay just £15 per month, while a 40% taxpayer will pay just £30 per month. Opt for the range-topping EV6 GT-Line S and 20% taxpayers will still only pay from £19 per month, with 40% taxpayers, paying from just £40 per month.
Being the largest electric car in Kia’s range has its obvious advantages – namely passenger and boot space. In fact, as Autocar’s road test team says, “space in the rear is generous, with limousine levels of leg room”.
Head to the back of the EV6 and you’ll be treated to a capacious boot, capable of swallowing seven carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf as demonstrated by What Car?’s road testers. A variable-height boot floor means you can decide whether to maximise space or create a flat loading lip which is handy for heavier objects such as bikes and flat-pack furniture.
490 litres of configurable boot space with the rear seats in place expands to 1300 litres at the pull of a toggle, and an enviable road trip with a lot more than just the essentials. Did we mention the extra 52-litre boot up front?
Whether you’re behind the wheel or in a seat adjacent, the striking, minimalist interior will keep you calm and comfortable. Touch-sensitive controls – complete with haptic feedback, and physical buttons, perfectly blend function and form, while the peerless, panoramic, dual 12.3-inch, high-resolution curved displays remind you this is no ordinary EV.
