The Kia EV6 is getting all the attention as this is Kias latest electric vehicle, which comes with some cool tech as well as charging speeds. If you are interested in new electric cars from 2022 from Kia, there is the 2022 Kia Niro EV, while a new Kia EV is getting lots of attention, the Kia EV6. Kia says Kia plans on building 11 new electric cars through 2026, the first being the new 2022 EV6.
Kia says that it is targeting electric cars, including hybrids and plug-in hybrids, at 40% of its sales by 2030. In an interview with Automotive News, Kia president Hosung Song said that he wants to see Kia selling 500,000 battery-electric vehicles and an additional 500,000 hybrids and plug-in hybrids by 2026. As Americas charging network continues to expand, more consumers are showing interest in EVs, so Kias electric cars should see an increase in sales, particularly once it launches its new EV6 in 2022.
The 2022 Kia EV6 proves Kia can provide highly competitive, fashionable, long-range, rapid-charging, all-battery-electric vehicles in the more-popular crossover segment. With a claimed range of up to 310 miles and quick charging thanks to the 800-volt 2022 Kia EV6 architecture, the EV6 is a case study in expanding choice and capabilities for recent electric vehicles. Available with either a single electric motor mounted to the rear axle, or one motor mounted on both axles, the EV6 is configurable as a rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive.
The 800-volt architecture for the 2022 Kia EV6 means that a Kia EV can add about 217 miles of range — when connected to a super-fast 350-kW highway charging station — in 18 minutes. According to EPA estimates, the Kia Niro electric car should give you about 239 miles of range on the plug. The Kia EV6 has a range of 310 miles, and dual-motor versions are down to 274 miles.
Between 167 and 576 horsepower is available for the EV6 GT, which is range-topping, supposedly capable of zero-to-60-mph acceleration in less than 3.5 seconds. The 576 horsepower is pretty impressive for an SUV, particularly from a brand named Kia. In addition to the 576 hp, the Kia EV6 GT will boast 546 pound-feet of torque, too, plenty of horsepower for a vehicle of its size.
The new EV6 is expected to be one of Kias most impressive electric cars to date. While Kias EV6 is not the most aggressive looking EV, it has quite the good profile and unique style all of its own, and once again, you know it is there at a glance. The Kia EV6 promises to be a ground-breaking new fully electric crossover, since it is built on the same Kia electrical platform, comes with futuristic features like augmented reality heads-up display, it will go more than 300 miles on a charge, and it can recharge itself in just 18 minutes to reach 210 miles.
The Kia EV6 is Kias first car to come from Hyundais new E-GMP platform. Its Kia EV6 actually shares a platform with the Hyundai Ioniq 5, so it may be worth looking into that Hyundai model if you are considering the Kia. The 2022 Kia EV6 is the second car in Hyundai Motor Groups portfolio to be powered by its companys E-GMP electric car platform, following the December introduction of the Ioniq 5. The 2022 Kia EV6 is the first all-electric car from the company, with the striking crossover built on the same electric-global modular (E-GMP) platform that will power the new crop of Kia EVs.
There is every indication Kia, over the next few years, will transplant 2022s Kia EV6 attributes and capabilities into an enlarged, full-size, fully electric SUV, followed by a smaller, zero-emissions hatchback. With the introduction of the brand-new 2022 EV6, Kia has significantly stepped up its EV game.
The new plan, which extends on its earlier “Plan S” strategy, calls for Kia to introduce at least two new battery-electric vehicles a year, raising its total to 14 electric vehicles on sale — and that is not all available in the U.S. market. There is still no word on what a base-level battery-electric car means, nor if Kia would introduce one in the American market.
Level-1 charging is known as trickle charging, which could take longer than 24 hours to completely recharge a Kia EVs battery. Along with its 800-volt running voltage, the Kia says that when connected to a 350-kW quick charger, it can recharge the batteries between 10 percent and 80 percent in less than 18 minutes. Quick charging When using a publicly available 350-kW DC fast charging station under ideal conditions, Kia says the EV6 can add 217 miles of range in just 18 minutes, going from 10 to 80 percent of battery capacity; this may not always be possible, though, depending on vehicle and environmental conditions. You can go to any nearby charging station to recharge the Hyundai or Kia.
No charging hardware included Unlike most all-electric cars, the EV6 does not include any sort of wiring or plugging hardware at the house. A viable alternative to some of the most costly EVs, like Teslas Model Y, the EV6 has the option of charging quickly on a 350-kilowatt charger from Electrify America, which is not usually available on the more affordable electric cars. Plus, thanks to its remote start, you can regulate the interior temperature of its Kia EV6 before even getting inside.
