Kia EV6: test, electric, battery, range, price

Good cop, bad cop: this is how Koreans place their products. From the Hyundai Ioniq 5 some were a bit disappointed. A good, clever electric car, but its sporty exterior hardly did justice to the perfectly tuned Stromer, the good cop. The brother of the group now takes over the job of evil Kia EV6.

The designers skillfully varied the proportions, pressed them known technique into a six centimeter longer, 5.5 centimeter flatter sheet metal dress and shortened the wheelbase by ten centimeters. Result: a right beefy fellow has become the EV6. Plus grim ones Headlights, a coupe-like roofline with spoiled rear and continuous strip of lights. In connection with the matt gray lacquer (“Moonscape Matt” for 920 euros) the amazed spectators seem a bit disappointed when Batman doesn’t get out of the car while reloading.

Extraordinary workplace: We feel comfortable in the Kia cockpit, the screen layout fits, the workmanship is high-quality.


There is hardly anything to complain about in the interior

We climb the Crossover (62.5 cm seat height) and admire the spaceship-like, floating Center console. The whole thing is given an additional visual kick by the monitors, which are combined to form a unit, consisting of an instrument cluster and a central display that is slightly curved towards the driver – very cool screen layout! The display below controls either air conditioning or infotainment. On the other hand, we don’t find multiple bookings so cool, but at least they still exist real knobs for temperature setting or volume and navigation zoom. Also Workmanship and quality inspire: The EV6 is stingy with hard plastic and rattling noises. Solid work, Kia!

A couple Nerve factors there is still: In addition to the nervous steering on the autobahn, it’s easy to curse Steering assistants. Without a break, the steering wheel tugs a degree to the left and then to the right and again to the left … deactivate immediately! Fortunately, the switch is conveniently located on the steering wheel. Another quirk: After charging at the fast charging station with the ignition switched on, the electronics are permanently confused after unplugging the cable, does not want to release the car for driving. The restart does not work immediately either. That can be done more skillfully. You can find out what else we noticed, how the Kia drives and what it costs, in the picture gallery.
