Revealed for the first time in March 2021, the South Korean carmaker is already preparing the KIA EV6 facelift, their first dedicated All-Electric vehicle (codenamed as CV) and for the first time we can see this new design changes applied to the front end, with completely new headlights thanks to this new rendering courtesy of our colleagues at Top Electric SUV

Captured inside a parking lot in South Korea, the updated Kia EV6 was captured heavily camouflaged but despite that, it is easy to see the differences. We can appreciate bigger differences that affects the front design for the first time, with new headlights.

Talking about the powertrain, we don’t expect many changes compared to the currently line-up despite a small fine-tuning to make the electric motors more efficient and probably adding a higher density battery pack to increase the electric range. According to some sources, Kia plans to add LFP batteries in order to make the EV6 more affordable.

As for the inside, looking at the recently launched EV9, you can bet Kia will apply the same third screen curved glass system as well as the latest safety and tech features including on demand features. It is difficult to know when Kia plans to release this facelift but we don’t expect it before Summer 2024 in South Korea, with European and US-spec models arriving by end of 2024.

Despite the world is no longer facing a semiconductor shortage, Kia is still struggling to delivery the current EV6 and another top models such as Sorento or e-Niro so it is difficult to predict if these schedules will be fulfilled. It looks like some of the orders will be delivered as a refreshed model if that situation does not get better during 2023.
