Not only is the EV6 Kia's first dedicated EV, but it's also the first product to be designed under the brand’s new design philosophy – ‘Opposites United’.
Ahead of its world premiere later this month, Kia has released the final product images of the all-new EV6, which give us the first glimpse at the new EV's exterior and interior in detail. As mentioned above, the EV6 brings along Kia's new design philosophy, 'Opposites United', which takes inspiration from the contrasts found in nature and humanity. The philosophy is based on five key design pillars: ‘Bold for Nature’, ‘Joy for Reason’, ‘Power to Progress’, ‘Technology for Life’, and ‘Tension for Serenity’. After making its debut on the EV6, the new design language is expected to headline the design of all future Kia models.
As for the EV6's design, the new model gets a ‘Digital Tiger Face’, which is basically a modification of Kia's 'Tiger Nose Grille' design for the electrified era. The face is marked by sleek-looking DRLs, a sequential dynamic light pattern and an aero-optimised lower intake. The swept-back windshield, sloping C-pillars with an integrated black glossy insert, and the sloping roofline, all highlight the EV6's crossover-inspired design.
Inside, a seamless curved high-definition audio-visual and navigation (AVN) screen takes centre stage and also serves as the display for the instrument cluster. A minimal number of physical buttons, thanks to the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) settings controlled using haptic ‘buttons’, offer an overall uncluttered design.
The EV6 has been built on the Hyundai Group's new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). The final specs and details will be revealed at the time of the car's world premiere.
