The carmaker unveiled the Korean-spec EV6, which sports a bigger battery and updated appearance.

Greater Battery Capacity and Range

Similar to the Hyundai, the Kia’s 84.0-kWh battery pack replaces the 77.4-kWh one that was previously offered, hopefully increasing the car’s overall range. Anticipate that the Hyundai’s upgraded pack will bring the EV6’s estimated 303 miles of range for rear-drive cars closer to 325 miles.

The predicted range of the existing EV6 should improve similarly, with rear-drive vehicles expected to reach 330 miles, up from the present rating of 310 miles. 230 miles might be covered on a full charge by a dual-motor all-wheel-drive Wind model that was previously driven on your highway fuel-economy route at 75 mph.

A Redesign

The largest update for the EV6 is the larger battery, but there will be other changes as well. The revised headlamp design is the most noticeable visual modification. An angular C-shaped LED running light encircles the main lighting unit in the new units. The taillight continues to swoop around the back of the vehicle, but it now has a new triangle swoop at each end. To set the GT-Line model apart from lower-end variants, it also receives revised front and rear bumpers.

Similar to the departing model, an individual, curved piece of glass conceals the infotainment and digital gauge cluster screens.

A fingerprint authentication system, an upgraded wireless charging pad, a new infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a redesigned steering wheel round out the features. When it officially ships, anticipate that the majority of these changes will also be applied to the U.S.-spec EV6. Now that the new automobile has been unveiled in Korea, don’t think the wait will be too long.
