Kia’s most powerful production car and a new flagship model for the brand, the EV6 GT combines exhilarating performance, world-class long-distance touring capability and super-fast charging technology. It is already available for reservations, and the deliveries will start at the end of 2022.

The expressive exterior design of the EV6 GT features a number of sporty touches and aesthetic enhancements that hint at the vehicle’s performance attributes. And if you enter the cabin, you will be received in a space focused on this sportiness, but very comfortable, which also has first-rate technology designed to meet the needs of the driver and passengers, further improving safety, connectivity and infotainment. characterize a Kia.

Based on Kia’s Advanced Global Electric Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV6 GT significantly improves performance over the standard twin-motor, all-wheel-drive EV6 with the installation of a new engine high-performance rear that offers remarkable 63% increase in total power.

And it is that the 585 hp and 740 Nm of torque allow this model to cover the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a dizzying 3.5 seconds, making it Kia’s fastest production vehicle, and of the Hyundai group, to date. . Indeed, emphasizing that despite all this potential, its autonomy is an impressive 424 kilometers and it can be charged from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes.

Thus, in this model the new GT driving mode stands out, which automatically configures the electric motors, braking, steering, semi-active dampers, e-LSD and electronic stability control (ESC) systems of the vehicle in their more dynamic configurations (Sport or Sport+), transforming the character and responsiveness of this sporty crossover and offering very dynamic driving experience.

In GT mode, ESC allows for a higher level of tire slip for a more intimate and adjustable connection to the road, and if preferred, drivers can even disable the ESC system entirely to increase the risk of oversteer. To go further and deliberately induce oversteer, a selectable Drift mode sends a greater proportion of power to the rear wheels, up to 100%, for unrestricted lateral action, while power can be redistributed to the front rear wheels at new when released. a curve.

To further enhance ease of use, the EV6 GT’s Integrated Charge Control Unit (ICCU) features Vehicle-to-Device (V2D) capability, capable of discharging power from the vehicle’s battery. The V2D function can provide up to 3.6 kW of power and is capable, for example, of simultaneously operating a 55-inch TV and an air conditioner for more than 24 hours. The system can also charge another electric vehicle if needed.

A new front bumper, unique to the GT, helps emphasize the vehicle’s width and strong, stable stance.

The sporty character of the vehicle is also conveyed by a set of 21-inch five-spoke alloy wheels unique to the EV6 GT, while striking neon brake calipers indicate incredible stopping power. Out back, an aerodynamic spoiler, bold LED taillights and a unique bumper and diffuser complete the GT’s transformation.

Also comfortable and practical

The interior of the EV6 GT presents a very sporty image, but it is very comfortable and practical. Its seats provide full support during sporty driving, as well as over long distances for long journeys. Metal inserts bearing the ‘GT’ moniker and neon green piping add to the contemporary, technical look of the seats.

Las pantallas de infoentretenimiento de 12.3 pulgadas curvas dobles brindan todas las functions de conducción, conectividad y entretenimiento con una claridad nítida, y el lenguaje de form simple de las pantallas anchas y el tablero alineado horizontalmente le dan al interior una sensación acogedora y de high technology.
