Kia’s all-new EV6 GT is an all-electric high-performance crossover created for the new sustainable mobility era. Kia’s most powerful production car ever and a new halo model for the brand, the EV6 GT combines exhilarating performance; first-class long-distance travel capabilities; ultra-fast charging tech; and a highly impressive real-world driving range for effortless cross-country touring.
The EV6 GT’s expressive exterior design features a series of sporty touches and aesthetic enhancements that hint at the vehicle’s performance attributes. Step inside and occupants are greeted with a focused yet comfortable space that features state-of-the-art tech designed to meet the needs of the driver and passengers, further enhancing safety, connectivity and infotainment to protect and engage at every stage of a journey.
The EV6 GT can cover the 0-100 km/h sprint in a blistering 3.5 seconds – making this the most rapid production Kia and Hyundai Motor Group vehicle to date – and it has a top speed that peaks at 260 km/h. Despite the crossover’s enhanced performance potential, driving range is an impressive 424 km and it can be charged from 10-80% in just 18 minutes.
Sjoerd Knipping, Vice President of Marketing and Product at Kia Europe, commented: “As Kia continues its mission to become a leading sustainable mobility solutions provider, the new EV6 GT is the clearest sign yet of how all-electric cars can offer truly unparalleled levels of engagement and excitement behind the wheel. Here is a crossover that expertly combines the power, performance and agility of a sports car with the comfort, range and ultra-fast charging capabilities befitting of a modern-day GT.”
ULTRA-FAST CHARGING MAXIMISES GRAND-TOURING CREDENTIALS
The grand-touring credentials of the EV6 GT are boosted by its impressive driving range and fast-charge capabilities. The 77.4 kWh long-range lithium-ion battery pack delivers a 424 km driving range, and it can be charged from 10-80% in just 18 minutes. The combination of sports car performance, long range and ultra-fast charging means the EV6 GT is a truly exciting and capable GT for the electric era.
The EV6 GT makes it quick and convenient to cover long distances with easy access to a dedicated charging network. Kia’s investment in IONITY, Europe’s comprehensive high-power charging network, means drivers can look forward to a carefree charging experience.
With access to over 400 charging stations powered by 100% clean energy across 24 European countries and a charge point at every 120 km of the European highway network, drivers can enjoy the freedom and convenience associated with regular, reliable and sustainable fast charging.
Kia’s partnership with Digital Charging Solutions (DCS) also gives drivers access to over 360,000 further charge points. Users can easily manage tariffs and payments for both IONITY and DCS providers via the easy-to-use Kia Charge App.
To assist with speedy charging of the EV6 GT, new Navigation Based Battery Conditioning functionality optimises the temperature of the battery whenever a high-speed charger is set as the destination. This ensures that the EV6 GT can be charged at the optimum rate in colder temperatures.
Further enhancing usability, the EV6 GT’s Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU) features a Vehicle-to-Device (V2D) function, which is capable of discharging energy from the vehicle’s battery. The V2D function can supply up to 3.6kW of power and is capable, as an example, of operating a 55-inch television and air conditioner simultaneously for more than 24 hours. The system is also able to charge another EV, if needed.
The Kia EV6 GT is available to order now at Hinchy’s Garryspillane and Ennis Road, Limerick.
