The EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated EV based on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This high-tech architecture ensures the EV6 eliminates the many compromises faced by EVs that are created on platforms initially designed to accommodate internal combustion engine vehicles. As a result of its E-GMP underpinnings, the EV6 has a class-leading interior space, a highly impressive 528km driving range and 800V ultra-fast charging capabilities that enables customers to carry out a 10 to 80 percent charge in just 18 minutes.

The same happened with the Hyundai IONIQ 5. Since its introduction in 2020, it has won many admirers thanks to its attractive design, range of up to 484 km and the same rapid recharge ability.
