Kia India has begun its electric journey by opening bookings for the EV6. They however are only bringing in 100 units and they will come in through the CBU-route. That means, availability will be limited.

The Kia EV6 will be a limited offering for 2022 and will be priced between Rs 65 and 80 lakh (ex-showroom).

We recently drove the EV6 at the Buddh International Circuit. And now, Kia has begun accepting bookings for its high-end EV. You can book one by shelling out Rs 3 lakh at one of 15 Kia dealerships across 12 cities in India. The Kia EV6’s availability will be limited, as only 100 units are coming to India as a CBU-import in 2022.

In terms of numbers, the Kia EV6 seems quite impressive. It has a claimed range of 528km and takes only 18 minutes to be charged from 10 to 80 per cent. What's more, it can go from 0 to 100km/h in 5.2 seconds. All this is possible because of a 77.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a 321bhp electric motor (on the AWD version). The electric motor in the 2WD version makes 226bhp.

Kia EV6 Interior

The Kia EV6 has an 800V electrical architecture, meaning it can be charged using a 350KWh charger – the reason for its insanely quick recharge time. However, you won’t find this charger anywhere in India, as of now. The EV6 is based on the E-GMP platform, which also underpins the Hyundai IONIQ 5 – another EV from the Hyundai/Kia stable coming to India this year.

Kia’s EV6 is also packed with features. It gets the latest set of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features and 60+ connected car features. The EV6 also gets a comprehensive regenerative braking package, which allows the driver to select between 6 modes and allows for single-pedal driving. There are also three drive modes – Normal, Eco, and Sport.

As the Kia EV6 will be a direct import and will attract high taxation, we expect it to be priced between Rs 65 lakh and Rs 80 (both ex-showroom).
