With the 2022 Kia EV6, an electric vehicle exuding style, sophistication, and performance, the Korean automaker is launching an electrification offensive that will roll out during this decade. By 2030, Kia expects battery-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) to comprise 40% of total sales. The company says 11 new BEV models will arrive by 2026.
Kia bases the new 2022 EV6 on the Hyundai Motor Group's Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which also serves as the foundation for the 2022 Hyundai Ioniq 5. The automaker will use the EV prefix for all of its upcoming E-GMP-based electric vehicles, with the number denoting the model's position within the lineup.
Available in standard, GT-Line, and GT trim, the 2022 Kia EV6 is a 5-passenger BEV that Kia will market as a crossover SUV. The company builds it in South Korea and has scheduled its release date in selected global markets for the second half of 2021.
