Kia America has announced the U.S. pricing for the 2022 EV6, the Hyundai subsidiary’s very first all-electric model, starting at $40,900 USD ($33,400 after the $7,500 federal vehicle tax credit).
Originally teased by Kia in March 2021, the 2022 EV6 is an electric crossover powered by state-of-the-art, high-density lithium-ion batteries that allow for an EPA-rated range of up to 310 miles and also boasts a Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) feature that turns the car into a mobile power source.
The Kia EV6 will be available in the following trims:
- EV6 Light RWD ($40,900): 168kW rear motor, 167 hp, 58.0 kWh battery pack, 232 miles of EPA-rated range.
- EV6 Wind RWD ($47,000): 168kW rear motor, 225 hp, 77.4 kWh battery pack, 310 miles of EPA-rated range.
- EV6 Wind Dual Motor e-AWD ($50,900): 74kW front motor and 165kW rear motor, 320 hp, 77.4 kWh battery pack, 274 miles of EPA-rated range.
- EV6 GT-Line RWD ($51,200): 168kW rear motor, 225 hp, 77.4 kWh battery pack, 310 miles of EPA-rated range.
- EV6 GT-Line Dual Motor e-AWD ($55,900): 74kW front motor and 165kW rear motor, 320 hp, 77.4 kWh battery pack, 274 miles of EPA-rated range.
The pricing above does not take into account the $7,500 federal electric vehicle tax credit in the U.S., or various state incentives the EV6 may qualify for. The sticker price will also have a $1,215 destination charge tacked onto it.
The EV6 is dangerously similar in price to the IONIQ 5 from its parent company Hyundai. Given that it is an electric CUV, the EV6 will also have to duke it out with the likes of the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Volkswagen ID.4, and others for market share.
According to the company, the EV6 is expected to arrive in dealerships in the upcoming weeks.
