2022 Kia EV6 rated for up to 310 miles of electric range

The standard model offers a respectable 232 miles

The 2022 Kia EV6’s range and also performance have actually been certified by the EPA. The Criterion Variety model can do 232 miles on a fee, the company says, while the long-range, rear-wheel-drive design peaks at 310. Adding a 2nd motor for four-wheel drive drops that overall to 274 miles.

The EV6 uses the E-GMP modular system shown Hyundai as well as will certainly provide solitary- and also dual-motor powertrains, along with 2 battery choices. The Standard Array EV6 will be a single-motor, rear-drive variation with a 58.0-kilowatt-hour battery as well as 160-kilowatt electric motor supplying up to 167 horse power. One more rear-wheel-drive version will certainly supply a 77.4-kWh battery as well as 160-kW electric motor supplying 218 hp. Moving further up the schedule is an all-wheel-drive design with 77.4-kWh battery, with a 70-kW electric motor up front and also 160-kW electric motor in the rear giving an overall of 313 hp as well as 0– 60 time of 5.1 seconds.

Sister car manufacturer Hyundai’s brand-new Ioniq 5 handles a complete series of 303 miles in its single-motor setup with the 77.4-kWh battery pack. Including the 2nd electric motor drops it to a still-respectable yet less-impressive 256 miles.

Volkswagen’s ID.4 electric SUV currently tops out at 260 miles in its “Pro” setup.
