The Kia EV6 electric car is the company’s first take in the all-electric segment. The EV6 has managed to grab the attention of people in different parts of the world and it is finally coming to India. However, don’t expect it to take over Indian roads anytime soon. The company will be offering a very limited number of cars in the first round of bookings. This Kia may test Indian waters with its premium EV offering. Sources have told BGR.in that the company may initially offer only 100 units in the Indian market.
The Kia EV6 is the first BEV from the South Korean company owned by Hyundai. The car was launched globally in March last year. About a year after that, Kia will open bookings for the new EV. In a statement, Kia said that the brand will only bring limited units of the car, and bookings for the vehicle will start from May 26, 2022. The launch date has not yet been specified. Kia claims that the launch will happen soon after bookings are opened.
The new Kia EV6 is built on the company’s new dedicated EV platform E-GMP. The Kia EV6 is a special offering from Kia India. This car has been seen during testing on the roads of Hyderabad and it is also not clear. This was a strong indication that the car would be getting a launch date soon.
Kia EV6 India Pricing
The Kia EV6 will be imported into India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). Considering that the car is not made in India, its base price tag will attract very high customs charges, which is why the car is expected to be priced between Rs 40 lakh to Rs 60 lakh.
Kia EV6 Specifications
According to the global website, the Kia EV6 gets a WLTP range of up to 528 km. The range of variants launched in India may vary depending on the price. In terms of charging, the vehicle can get an instant boost with just a few minutes of charging. Kia claims that the EV6 can get enough charge to run 100km in just 4.5 minutes (in test conditions). Charging may vary depending on the charger as well as the current battery percentage of the car.
With the bookings for the Kia EV6 starting soon after, only a limited number of cars offered in India first appeared on BGR India.
