Kia, which is best known in India for its best-selling Seltos and Sonet SUVs, is finally bringing their first electric vehicle to the country. The company has begun accepting bookings for the EV6, with only 100 units set aside for India in 2022. Based on the success of the first sale, Kia may expand the program next year.
Kia EV6 Features
The EV6 will be sold in India as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), which would increase the cost. This is one of the key reasons the brand chose to produce only 100 pieces. The EV6 is based on Kia’s new “Opposites United” design philosophy and is built on the e-GMP platform.
The electric vehicle comes with a 58kWh battery pack in two configurations—rear-wheel drive (RWD) with a 170hp single-motor setup and all-wheel drive (AWD) with a 235hp, dual-motor setup. There is also a long-range model with a 77.4kWh battery pack that is paired with either a 229hp single-motor setup in RWD mode, a 325hp dual-motor setup in AWD mode, or a top-of-the-line GT performance model with a dual-motor AWD arrangement that produces 585hp and 740Nm.
