We have recognized for some time thatcould be a low-slung crossover driving on the Hyundai Motor Group’s new . However due to a brand new set of teasers launched Monday, we have got our greatest look but, together with a affirmation that the brand new electrical automobile can be referred to as the EV6, a naming scheme that the corporate’s future EVs will comply with.
The EV6’s styling reportedly previews a brand new design language for Kia’s electric cars, and from what we are able to see, it appears to be like rattling good. It is obtained a smooth, coupelike roofline with an built-in rear spoiler on the prime of the raked hatch, and a slight ducktail as properly. The entrance finish is low with a seemingly quick overhang, and the slim headlights have a cool segmented LED sample. There is no massive grille, with the EV6 as an alternative getting a skinny black panel beneath , however it appears to be like just like the automobile can have some massive air intakes within the decrease bumper.
We will additionally see that the four-door EV6 has flush door handles for higher aerodynamics, massive wheels, a blacked-out A-pillar and a kicked-up window on the C-pillar. Our favourite seen little bit of design is out again, the place the taillights lengthen all the best way to the rear wheel arch and have an oh-so-ubiquitous mild bar working throughout the hatch. These lights even have a segmented LED sample, and the sequential flip alerts join on the base of the taillights and curve again across the base of the hatch.
Provided that the EV6 rides on the already unveiled E-GMP platform, which it can share withand a yet-to-be-revealed (in addition to not less than and plenty of different Hyundai fashions), we all know rather a lot about its potential specs. The bottom EV6 will seemingly have a single motor and rear-wheel drive, whereas a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive setup can be non-obligatory. The E-GMP platform permits for round 600 horsepower and 0-to-60-mph instances as little as 3.5 seconds, however the quickest EV6 at first will seemingly share its setup with the top-level Ioniq 5, that means 306 hp, 446 pound-feet of torque and a 0-to-60-mph time of round 5 seconds.
The EV6 ought to have a most vary of round 300 miles on the European WLTP cycle, and it is going to be able to 800-volt charging. The Ioniq 5 can achieve 62 miles of vary in simply 5 minutes of charging and go from 10% to 80% cost in 18 minutes with 350-kW DC fast-charging. It stays to be seen whether or not the EV6 can be able to the Ioniq 5’s V2L charging, wherein the automobile works as a generator to energy issues like home equipment and e-bikes.
Each Kia electrical automobile identify will begin with the letters EV, and the EV6 leaves numerous room for a lineup of fashions at each ends, with the quantity equivalent to the mannequin’s place within the lineup. This new naming scheme makes issues less complicated, particularly throughout world markets, however it’s barely disappointing that Kia will not be utilizing nice names like, and . However numerous Kia fashions are transferring to alphanumerics — take a look at and — so it is not precisely stunning.
Kia says the EV6 will debut later this month, and it’ll seemingly go on sale within the fall. We count on the EV6 will begin at round $45,000 earlier than any incentives and tax credit.
