Kia EV6 Claims 510 Km Range On A Single Charge

Kia EV6 which was recently revealed claims a single-charge range of over 510 km (317 miles) from the version with the largest battery pack.

It also has up to 800V charging, which allows ultra fast charging from 10–80% in just 18 minutes.

If you want quick acceleration, the performance model, the EV6 GT, gets you from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds — which is quicker than any non-criminal needs to accelerate ~100% of the time 😉

Top speed of that model is 260 km/h (162 mph).

The car’s charging system is more flexible than previous generation BEVs thanks to an Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU).

The ICCU enables a new vehicle-to-load (V2L) function, which is capable of discharging energy from the vehicle battery.

The V2L function can supply up to 3.6kW of power and is capable, as an example, of operating a 55-inch television and air conditioner simultaneously for more than 24 hours.

The system is also able to charge another EV, if needed.

Kia EV6 is the first dedicated BEV produced by Kia using the all-new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), and forms the first part of Kia’s transition to the new era of electrification under the new brand slogan, ‘Movement that inspires’.

The Kia EV6 will also be capable of getting over-the-air software updates.

The EV6 also features an augmented reality (AR) head-up display system, which projects driving information onto the base of the windscreen in the driver’s line of sight.

The system displays alerts from the car’s Advanced Driver Assistance System, details of vehicle speed, and turn-by-turn navigation instructions.

At the moment, the EV6 will only be produced in South Korea.
