5 reasons to buy the 2022 Kia EV6

1. Effortless charging capability

The EV6 makes charging feel easy. The built-in navigation system can guide you to the nearest charger on your route, and further afield, to more than 40,000 charging stations throughout the United States. If you choose to plug in at a Level 3 fast-charging station on your journey, the EV6 can add up to 70 miles of range in five minutes, or take you up to an 80% charge in as little as 20 minutes—according to Kia.

2. Numerous tech features

Being brand new for 2022, the EV6 comes packed with the latest tech conveniences to elevate your driving experience and ensure passenger satisfaction is high too. Thoughtful tech to aid eye comfort comes from the standard blue-light filter for all driver displays while steering wheel-mounted Bluetooth®, audio, and voice recognition controls are conveniently to hand too. Rear-row passengers are not forgotten either, the EV6 has second-row fast-charging USB ports.

3. The First Edition trim 

If you can track down one of the EV6 First Edition models, you're in for a treat. This limited-run trim is based on the features and conveniences of the all-wheel drive GT-Line model, with some extra treats thrown in. Ensuring its visually-striking status, the First Edition EV6 has 20-inch wheels, trim-exclusive doorsill plates, and some unique colorways to its name—including the bright and bold Urban Yellow exterior with Black upholstery, and a Glacier White exterior with Dark Green upholstery. 

4. Panoramic 12.3-inch screens

Taking your driving experience up a notch, the EV6 has dual panoramic displays that flow seamlessly across the dash, providing a combined 24.6 inches of high-definition driver information and graphic display—such as range availability and battery status—all controlled from the steering-wheel-mounted rocker switch. The second display holds everything else you might need, allowing you to control features such as air-conditioning, navigation, audio, and charging-related information. This intuitive system makes connectivity easy, allowing you and your EV6 to work harmoniously together.

5. The available V2L port 

The 2022 EV6 is ready to take your road trips into the next dimension, making longer trips and life on the road easier, thanks to the very latest in EV technology, a V2L port. This Vehicle-to-Load port (Wind, GT-Line) allows you to use the onboard battery to power your must-have electrical items. Imagine plugging in your favorite coffee maker as you take in the campground’s rural landscapes. Or work remotely full-time with your laptop plugged in when it needs a boost. Whether it's the ease of stovetop cooking or a blast of your hairdryer after a rainy hike, the EV6 can offer you access to the true comforts of home.

Interior details

The EV6 is a five-seat crossover SUV full of soft-touch materials and generous passenger space that's protected from excessive exterior noise. That comfort extends to the seats too, as cloth upholstery with vegan leather accents is standard. Full vegan leather and suede upgrades are available. Standard features include heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a second-row pulldown armrest.

Passenger storage includes a large center console, front seatback magazine pockets, door cubbies with space for bottles, and cupholders for front and rear passengers. 

Legroom across both rows is impressive: 42.4-inches for front-row passengers and 39.0-inches for the rear. The Kia EV6 has 24.4 cu-ft of cargo space behind the second row, with a maximum of 50.2 cu-ft when the second-row seats are folded down. 

Child seat details 

The Kia EV6 will certainly please growing families. It has two complete sets of LATCH connectors (two lower anchors and an upper tether) in the second-row outboard seats and an upper tether for the middle seat. Lower latches are easily found at the seat bight, while upper tether anchors are clearly marked at the rear of the seatback. Front- and rear-facing, infant, and booster seats are all accommodated, though two seats are likely the maximum the EV6 can accommodate at one time.


The EV6 has three trim levels that unlock the different battery and electric motor combinations. The EV6 base trim, Light, is powered by a 58 kWh battery pack and a 167 hp rear-mounted electric motor. When fully charged, it achieves an EPA-estimated 232 miles of range.

The Light trim is rear-wheel drive only. 

The Wind and GT-Line trims gain a 77.4 kWh battery pack and a more powerful rear-mounted motor. Both are available with RWD or AWD; the latter gains a front-mounted second onboard motor. If maximum electric vehicle range is important to you, the 77.4 kWh battery is a must-have. When fully charged, these models achieve an EPA-estimated 310 miles of range.

According to Kia's own testing when new, EV6 RWD models achieve a top speed of 115 mph (all trims) and an estimated zero-to-60 time of 7.2 seconds for the Wind and GT-Line versions, or eight seconds for the Light base trim model. For maximum impact on a track day, the EV6 with AWD achieves an estimated zero-to-60 time of 5.1 seconds.

For towing, you'll need to choose the EV6 Wind or GT-Line models, with the more powerful motor. When properly equipped, both the RWD and AWD versions can tow up to an estimated 2,300 pounds.

Year Comparisons 

2022-Kia EV6 (First Generation)

A brand new model for the 2022 model year, the EV6 is an all-electric original, with tidy dimensions, dynamic road handling, and a practical yet plush interior. A 576 hp EV6 GT is expected to join the current model line-up, possibly as part of the 2023 model year.
