(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.
“The EV6 not only demonstrates Kia’s future in terms of design and technological advancement, it is also the embodiment of the company’s new brand and Plan S strategy, as Kia’s first dedicated battery electric vehicle,” says Elias El-Achhab, VP and COO of Kia Canada. “We are excited for Canadians to get behind the wheel and experience the new era of electrification brought to them by Kia.”
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 modelsi:
A world-first, the EV6 features a patented multi-charging system capable of ultra-fast-charging at 800V and 400V, without a separate controller:
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 of recycling.
