Bound to be compared to the IONIQ 5, the EV6 on first impression has less of the boundary pushing looks of its cousin. However, with its own elegance and sportiness, plus large battery, vehicle to load ability and impressive specifications off the bat make, it will make you reconsider any thoughts you may have has about KIA.


The long wheel base from the dedicated electric platform, creates an extremely spacious cabin both front and back. Paired with the flat floor throughout, this crossover SUV not only has a modern sporty feel, but is also a practical family car.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
