As predicted, the EV6 will go on sale as a CBU at the beginning of next month. And bookings for the EV will open on 26th May. 

Last month, Kia India confirmed that it will open its order books for the EV6 on the 26th of May. Now, with just two days left to go, we can confirm that the car will be launched on 2nd June.

Earlier, we were expecting Kia to bring the EV6 here with multiple battery options – it's available (overseas) with both long-range (77.4kWh) and standard-range (58kWh) battery packs. Plus, both battery packs are available with rear-wheel drive (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) variants. However, based on some online reports, it seems that we may only get the 77.4kWh option, most likely with both dual-motor AWD and single-motor RWD variants.

With power and torque figures of 225bhp and 350Nm, respectively, the RWD 77.4kWh EV6 offers a driving range of up to 510km (based on the WLTP test cycle). As for the AWD version, it develops 320bhp and 605Nm of torque.

While it will be a better idea to talk about the Kia EV6's features once the car is launched, for now, we can say that it's likely to be priced around the ₹60 lakh mark. The EV6 will compete with the yet-to-be-launched Volvo XC40 Recharge, as the Swedish EV is also expected to arrive at a similar price.
