Kia has decided that the EV6 range shouldn't feature the smaller 'Standard Range' 58kWh battery pack available on this car in other markets (and on this model's Hyundai IONIQ 5 close cousin). Which is why there are no EV6 variants available for under £40,000. Instead, the line-up is exclusively offered here with the brand's larger 77.4kWh battery pack. There are two drivetrain options though, a rear wheel drive model with 226bhp, priced from around £42,000; or an AWD variant with 321bhp, priced from around £48,000. As for trim options, well there's an entry-level 'Air'-spec model for rear wheel drive customers but otherwise in the mainstream line-up, with both powertrains, there's the choice of either 'GT-Line' or 'GT-Line S' levels of trim. Separately positioned at the top of the range is the top high performance EV6 GT model which has AWD and the 77.6kWh battery but uses more powerful motors, putting out a total 577bhp output; for one of those, you're looking at close to £60,000.
As you'd expect from a Kia, all models come with quite a lot of kit - dual 12.3-inch curved screens, full-navigation with Kia Connect media services, full-LED headlights and lots of camera safety technology. 'GT-Line'-spec gets you a sportier body kit, plus suede upholstery, LED ambient lighting and power operation for the driver's seat.
If you can stretch to the top high performance EV6 GT AWD model, you will of course get more equipment still. There are intelligent LED headlights, which turn with the bends. Plus through the spokes of the larger 21-inch wheels (shod with stickier Michelin performance tyres), you'll glimpse neon green brake calipers. Sporty trim features around the fascia, you get a unique sports steering wheel and a premium audio system upgrade.
