(Toronto) February 2nd, 2022 -- Kia's first dedicated battery electric vehicle, the EV6, is set to arrive in Canada next month. The EV6 undoubtedly sets a new standard for Kia's electrified vehicles with unique design elements, thoughtfully crafted convenience features, and ever-evolving technology to enhance both safety and driving experience.

Built for Power Performance, Quick Charging and Long-Lasting Range
Built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV6 will be offered in RWD and AWD options and is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery, yielding performance to suit any type of driver's needs and a range of up to 499 kilometers on select models:

• RWD: 58.0 kWh battery with a 125kW rear motor (up to 373 km range)
• RWD: 77.4 kWh battery with a 168kW rear motor (up to 499 km range)
• AWD: 77.4 kWh battery with a 74kW front motor and a 165kW rear motor (up to 441 km range)
• AWD: 77.4 kWh battery with a 160kW front motor and a 270kW rear motor. This GT model will be available later in 2022.

A world-first, the EV6 features a patented multi-charging system capable of ultra-fast-charging at 800V and 400V, without a separate controller:

• 800V DC fast charging can supply nearly 100 kilometers in less than 5 minutes.
• Up to 380 kms of range (10-to-80 percent) added in under 18 minutes.
• On-board charger (OBC) for Level 2 recharging from 10-to-100 percent in 7 hours, 10 minutes (240v AC, at 48-amps) for the larger 77.4 kWh battery versions.

For the Canadian market specifically, the EV6 will also come with an available heat pump system with waste heat recycling to help maintain the all-electric range even at low temperatures. First integrated into the Soul EV and available on the Niro EV, this next-generation heat pump system on the EV6 uses not only the heat from the external air but also the waste heat from a variety of other electronic vehicle components resulting in a larger capacity for recycling.

New battery system that powers more than just the vehicle
Innovative and hassle-free, the EV6 features available Vehicle-to-Load (V2L), allowing the EV6 to operate as a power source with an output of 1.9kW. This is made possible through the Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU), which allows electricity to flow from the battery pack, powering everything from personal electronics like a laptop or phone, a projector during an evening out camping, a generator, or home appliances, and even another EV in emergency situations.

• 120V power outlet located in the lower center of the rear seat (indoor V2L, a Kia-first).

• Exterior V2L, located on the rear passenger side of the vehicle, has an output of 1.9kW and can also support Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) charging in case of emergency.

Modern Exterior and Interior: Kia's First Vehicle to Utilize 'Opposites United' Design Philosophy
The Opposites United design philosophy makes its debut on EV6, under the 'Power to Progress' pillar, which draws inspiration from the more recent evolution of the brand's strength in design. EV6's exterior design is distinguished and striking, with head-turning contours and eye-catching features:

• A new interpretation of the 'tiger face' for the digital era.
• Daytime running lights with moving light pattern inspired by electronic pixels.
• Intake moulding at the base of the front bumper provides an emphasized wide stance.
• Clamshell style hood incorporated into the entire fender.
• Along the side, voluminous silhouette with sharply integrated contours from hood to spoiler.
• Side sill garnish that visually connects the side of the vehicle to the tail lamp.
• 3 unique wheel designs for a high-tech look.
• Auto flush-type door handles, a first for Kia.
• Full LED rear lamps with built-in turn signal function, standard on all models.
• Rear spoiler and powered charging door that is camouflaged.

EV6's interior sets a new standard of possibilities when it comes to EV technology, improved interior space, and interaction:

• Panoramic curved display with two connected 12.3-inch displays (cluster and navigation).
• Start button and dial-type Shift by Wire applied in the optimal position.
• Lean, minimalist structure across a wide cockpit area that is lightweight, simple, and full of character.
• Unmatched interior console space featuring armrest and wide open tray storage, large capacity lid-type glove box, and hangers just behind the two front seats.
• Seats are slim, lightweight, and contemporary and are comprised of robust fabrics using recycled materials equating to 111 water bottles.
