We named the Kia EV6 as our 2021 Year Vehicle, so we were thrilled with the electric ferry. But even the best models on the market have their quirks. So we present: three advantages and three disadvantages of EV6 that you as a rental buyer / driver should be aware of.
Like the electric car, the Kia EV6, along with its brother Hyundai, sets new standards in its class. In fact, he passes Ioniq 5 on the right. The battery pack of the test drive produces 77.4 kWh, while 72.4 kWh is higher than Hyundai. This results in a 528-kilometer WLTP column. And due to a charging capacity of 240 kW, the battery pack delivered up to 10 percent returns 80 percent in 18 minutes.
Kia currently offers four variants: 58 kWh battery with rear wheel drive (170 hp, 350 Nm), 77.4 kWh battery and rear wheel drive (229 hp, 350 Nm), with 77.4 battery kWh and four- wheel drive (325 hp, 605 Nm) and GT with 586 hp and 740 Nm. The top version travels 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 260 km / h. But that is not one of the advantages (or disadvantages) we list below.

+ Benefits 3 – Handy, USB ports on handrail
Simple but smart: USB ports on the back of the front seats of the Kia EV6. You can find it very easily and no one will kick it.
– Disadvantages 1 – The clock disappears behind the wheel
Such a large digital instrument is of course good, but like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, part of the screen disappears behind the steering wheel.
– Disadvantages 2 – Affected in the back seat
In the back seat of the EV6, you have to adapt to the position: you sit on the lower bench, your knees are bent and your legs do not fit under the front seats.
– Disadvantages 3 – Backward view is limited
The EV6 is 4.70 meters high and the rear view is very small. Technology assists the driver when possible with a reverse camera and blind spot warning. And that too is needed …
