Shoot well and reload hard
Length 155 cm (a few to the cross) and equipped with a coordinated line, Korean electricity. Kia EV6 It has a wheelbase (distance between the centers of the wheels apart) of not less than 290 cm. The result is a very spacious interior. The tested version is the least powerful. But the 228 horse power of the engine placed under the trunk (which also for this reason is not large in relation to external dimensions) still guarantees live ammunition. Which is more in other versions (4×4 and at least 325 HP), where the second electric unit drives the front wheels. When driving, you enjoy excellent soundproofing, but the suspension doesn’t always absorb bumps as it should and the steering could be more precise.
There Kia EV6 it is the first car of the manufacturer to take advantage of the E-GMP platform, designed exclusively for electric vehicles, which made its debut in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (two houses are part of the same group). The 77.4kWh lithium-ion batteries are liquid-cooled and weigh 477kg; As with all electronics, they are located under the floor. Times are really low recharge: from column a AC and from the wall boxes Kia EV6 accepts up to 11 kW and from the direct speed of a good current 240 kW: looking for one very powerful, depending on the house, you go from 10 to 80% in twenty minutes. The Air version of the test is well-equipped, especially in terms of safety, but only the more expensive versions can have nice things like LED matrix lights and a high-end display. Money well spent for the rich Comfort package, which also includes the V2L (vehicle to load) function, i.e. the vehicle’s capacity give a stream using a 220 V socket on the base of the sofa or one in a special adapter to be inserted into an external recharging socket (it can provide up to 3.7 kW for 15 continuous hours). In this way, for example, a bicycle or motorcycle battery can be recharged.
As with all the cars of the house there is a seven-year warranty, in the case of the electric ones without mileage limits. And safety is also taken into account: in 2022, Euro NCAP awarded Kia EV6 5 stars. Lots of electronics: blind spot monitoring and lane keeping are standard, which, together with adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function, achieves semi-autonomous driving level 2 (the maximum allowed by law ). There is also automatic braking, even when reversing when leaving a parking space.
