We are witnessing the dawn of an exciting new era in motoring. The electric revolution has arrived, bringing with it a quantum leap in the way cars are built, powered and driven. At Kia, our designers and engineers are already moving ahead, creating a new class of advanced electric vehicles to inspire today and into the future.
Putting the tech into protection.
Wherever you go, day or night, multiple camera, radar systems and other active safety technologies are constantly on the lookout to protect you, your family and your EV6.
Ambient lighting and sound
Using four exterior mounted cameras, the Surround View Monitor provides a zoomable, 360 of your EV6 and its surroundings. It’s a great confidence boost when manoeuvring in tight spaces or parallel parking.
Before a passenger exits the EV6, Safe Exit Assist will warn and if necessary keep the door locked if it detects a a vehicle approaching from behind in the blind spot.
On the open road, Smart Cruise Control uses radar sensors and a camera to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle directly ahead while a trio of anti-collision systems scans for pedestrians and oncoming vehicles at intersections.
The EV6’s Intelligent Speed Limit Assist system uses a front view camera and navigation data to keep you informed of the current speed limit.
Should you attempt to change lanes while an object is in the blind spot, the Blind Spot Collision Avoidance system warns you with audio-visual alerts and haptic steering feedback. Even if you were to miss these warnings, the Electronic Stability Control will ultimately take over to prevent a collision.
Settle into the future
Just like its stunning exterior, the interior of the EV6 is a masterpiece of beautiful and functional design. Every detail has been considered to make this the most comfortable, secure and sustainable driving environment possible.
Ambient lighting and sound
Ahead of you, two curved, panoramic screens provide a huge 24 inches of immersive display for navigation, entertainment, convenience and vehicle information. The display is both beautiful to look at and easy on the eyes with an integrated blue light filter to reduce eye strain and driver fatigue.
Adjust the ambient lighting to set the mood and stream your favourite artist on the 14-Speaker Meridian® Premium Sound System (standard on GT-Line) The separate subwoofer and external amplifier surround you with rich and detailed hi-fi sound with no engine noise to detract from the performance.
Thoughtful features abound, including a wireless charging pad for your phone and USB-A and USB-C ports integrated into the floating centre console. Rear seat passengers have their own USB-C ports behind each front seat, ensuring that every device is charged and connected.
Design to redefine.
To create the EV6, Kia’s design and engineering teams started with a clean sheet - or more precisely, a clean platform.
Electric-Global Modular Platform
EV6 is the first vehicle to be built on Kia’s visionary Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). Developed exclusively for electric vehicles, E-GMP delivers superior handling and safety as well as increased power and range and ultra-rapid charging times.
The EV6 sits on a 2.9m wheelbase, similar in length to a midsize SUV. This translates into luxurious amounts of interior space with legroom of 1,078mm at the front and 990mm at the rear. Even with four people, there is still plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy the journey. A large wheelbase also means a large footprint on the road for sure handling and positive responses.
A technological tour de force.
At Kia, we believe that our vehicles should move your life forward in every way possible. It’s part of our driving philosophy of inspiring mobility. Now, the EV6 takes this philosophy to a new level with a host of intelligent convenience and safety features, designed to both enhance your life and protect it.
Remote Smart Parking Assist
Smart Power Tailgate
With Ultra Fast Charging it takes as little as 18 minutes to go from 10 to 80% charge and if a small power boost is needed on a longer trip, it’s possible to achieve a top-up charge of 100km in less than five-minutes. Accessed via an electronically controlled cover, the multi-charging system operates with both 400 V and 800 V chargers without the need for an additional adapter.
Fancy a road trip from Queenstown to Christchurch, Wellington to Hamilton or Auckland to Rotorua? With up to 528km^ of driving range, EV6 gives you the freedom to get there and back on a single charge. Regenerative braking extends your range even further, while waste heat is recaptured from the motor and other electric components to reduce winter range loss by almost 19% (grade dependent).
This ingenious feature allows you to remotely park your EV6 and exit parking spaces from outside the vehicle using the key fob. A suite of advanced sensors takes control, precisely guiding the vehicle into even the tightest of parking spaces.
The same innovative thinking powers the hands-free smart tailgate, which can be set to open to a desired height, avoiding low ceilings or other obstacles. When you have your hands full, simply stand behind your parked EV6 for 3 seconds with the key close by. The tailgate will sense your presence and open automatically.
EV6 is also the first Kia to introduce i-Pedal mode, allowing you to control the vehicle’s speed and braking using only the accelerator pedal. It’s the perfect antidote for stop-start city traffic.
When you need a little extra power for something else, like inflating a tent or powering a fridge, the EV6 becomes your portable energy source. The innovative Vehicle-to-load (V2L) function delivers 3.6 kW of 220 V AC power - more than enough to run your devices. All EV6 models feature an internal V2L output via a NZ household 3 pin outlet. The external V2L outlet is available as an optional accessory.
