Review

The Kia EV6 is an excellent electric car with a long range and the ability to charge up very quickly. It’s also huge in the back and good to drive. Just bear in mind that cheaper rear-wheel drive versions make more financial sense than the faster four-wheel drive models.

The mid-level GT-Line trim gives the EV6 some slightly sportier styling touches, alongside tinted windows, adaptive high beam, upgraded front seats with electronic adjustment and memory, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 60/40 split remote folding rear seats, additional front storage, front and rear parking sensors, wireless phone-charging and a clever device that allows the charging port to double as a 3.5kW three-pin plug socket; you can use it to boil a kettle or even (very slowly) charge another electric car.

This pricier dual-motor version has a second electric motor powering the front wheels, boosting power to 321bhp and giving acceleration that’s a match for the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus. It isn’t cheap, though.
