What are the Electric Driving Features of the EV6?

Dispelling Common Electric Vehicle Myths

Is the EV6 a Reliable Vehicle?

A top question that shoppers always ask about a potential vehicle they see in their future is, “How reliable is it?” It’s an honest and important question, especially given the cost for said vehicles and your expectation to be driving it for years to come. The Kia EV6 being so new means it’s hard to answer this question exactly at this moment, but the consistency of Kia being named as one of the most reliable vehicle brands can give you an idea of what to expect.

Is the EV6 a Hybrid Vehicle?

There are a lot of new terms thrown around these days in our new revolution of vehicles, from hybrid to electric to green to plug-in hybrid to battery electric and more. It can be easy to get mixed up and be confused as to what exactly these terms mea, and how they differ. The EV6 is actually not a hybrid vehicle, it is an electric vehicle. A hybrid vehicle has both gasoline and electric capabilities, hence the “hybrid” moniker. An electric vehicle has just electric power, including the EV6.

Can I Charge the EV6 at Home?

Yes, you can, in fact, charging your EV6 at home is where you’ll primarily be doing the most of your vehicle charging. While there are EV charging stations across the province, your most consistent and reliable location for charging will be at your home. A standard outlet gives you around 4 km to the battery per charge hour, while a Level 2 charger will achieve around 40 km per charge hour.

Does the EV6 Have All-Wheel Drive?

This is a very common question for our local Mississauga (and Canada-wide) drivers, where winter hits hard and roads become tough to navigate. The simple answer is, yes! In fact, out of the 5 available trims levels for the EV6, 3 of them are AWD, while the lower 2 models are RWD. An AWD SUV is almost essential for winter here in Mississauga, and even though the EV6 may be an electric vehicle, don’t mistake that for a lack of all-wheel drive ability.

Judging off pictures and video alone, it can be hard to gauge exactly how big the Kia EV6 is, both inside and out. Here, using the EV6 AWD Long Range trim as reference, are some of the key dimensions so you can get a feel for the size of the vehicle.

  • Head Room (rear): 965 mm

The top-level AWD LR (with GT-Line Pkg 2) starts at the highest price point (but with the most features and sport style) at $61,995.
