Introduction

What Car? says...

The Kia EV6 is an electric car that its maker claims can charge faster than a Tesla, go further than a Hyundai Ioniq 5 and, if you choose the right version, even out-accelerate a Porsche Taycan 4S.

And those claims should be taken seriously because Kia isn’t new to the electrification game. In fact, the brand's first effort, the Kia e-Niro, became the first electric car to win our overall Car of the Year award. However, unlike that car, the EV6 was designed from the outset to be a pure electric car – and that should give it an advantage in several key areas.

So, is the Kia EV6 a great buy or are there better options if you’re looking for a large electric SUV with a long range between charges? That’s what we’ll be finding out in this review. By the way, if you're looking for something smaller and cheaper, check out our Kia Niro EV and Kia Soul EV reviews.

When you've decided which make and model of car is right for you, we can potentially help you save thousands off the list price if you search our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. You'll find some very good new electric SUV deals.

FAQs

  • It should be. The Kia EV6 itself is too new to have featured in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey, but Kia as a brand claimed ninth place out of the 30 brands included. That puts it above rival electric car brands including Tesla and Volkswagen. Kia offers a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty. Read more here

  • Thanks to the 77.4kWh battery you get in all Kia EV6’s, you should be able to cover more than 300 miles on a full charge. The range you’ll get in the real world depends on how you drive and which version you go for. The single-motor RWD officially covers 328 miles while the more expensive all-wheel-drive version officially manages 314 miles. Read more here

  • Our chosen version of the Kia EV6 is the mid-level GT-Line trim and single-motor RWD (rear-wheel drive). That model gets you plenty of range and performance, but with plenty of standard equipment, including electronically-adjustable front seats, climate control, heated door mirrors, a heated steering wheel and front seats, sportier styling and a clever device that lets you use the charging port as a 3.5kW three-pin plug socket.

  • When it was tested by Euro NCAP in 2022, the Kia EV6 achieved a five-star rating. It comes with plenty of safety equipment, including automatic emergency braking (AEB), lane-keeping assistance and intelligent speed-limit assist. Upgrade to our chosen GT-Line trim and you’ll add blind-spot collision avoidance and rear cross-traffic alert to that list. Read more here

  • Every Kia EV6 comes with a curved 12.3in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, built-in sat nav and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring. The screen is placed high up in the middle of the dashboard and shows you information in a clear and precise manner. The system itself is intuitive and straightforward to use. Read more here

  • Boot space is one area where the Kia EV6 stumbles a bit. You see, even though the EV6 is a big car, its 490-litre boot isn’t all that huge, swallowing seven carry-on suitcases. You do get a front boot and space under the boot floor for your charging cables, but you’ll fit more in the Tesla Model Y or Volkswagen ID 4. Read more here
