Under high demand of electric vehicles, Kia India’s newly launched electric car, EV6, has crossed the milestone of 150+ deliveries in India so far.
Initially, the plan was to import only 100 EV6 units in India for 2022, but due to an overwhelming response and approximately 355 bookings on the launch date itself, the South Korean brand decided to meet that target.
According to recent reports, the company has already delivered around 152 units of EV6 across the country and plans to import more vehicles to meet demand.
The EV6 is imported into India as a CBU (Completely Built Unit) and is currently available in two variants, GT line and GT line AWD.
The price of this electric crossover starts at Rs 59.95 lakh (Avg ex-showroom). And it is available in five different colors: Moonscape, Snow White Pearl, Runway Red, Aurora Black Pearl, and Yacht Blue.
Mechanically, the Kia EV6 is powered by a 77.4kWh battery pack with a maximum range of 528km (WLTP cycle). Built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the crossover is available with a single or dual motor option.
The RWD variant with a single motor produces 226bhp and 350Nm of torque, while the AWD variant with a dual motor produces 321bhp and 605Nm of torque.
The Kia EV6 can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in 18 minutes, thanks to ultra-fast DC charging of up to 350kW. A 50kW DC charger, on the other hand, will take about one hour and 13 minutes.
At this price, the Kia EV6 competes with the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the BMW i4.
EV6 has proven to be a huge success for the brand with strong sales figures last month, and Kia will undoubtedly increase supply to meet the demand.
