Re: Kia EV6 Preview | Driven @ Buddh

This is the one car that has piqued the interest of many. Forget just starting off with EV sales, great cars like the EV6 truly add luster to the brand & showcase what the company is capable of.

From all the cars whose delivery has started in Q4, this is the one that got me the maximum queries & interest. Sharing 3 screenshots:

So true. This one actually got my TBHP COTY vote.

Cars like EV6 Atto 3 etc are really going to bring EV into the premium mass markets. Sitting smack between the Tigors and Nexons at one end and the big luxury marquees at the other.

Kia EV6 AWD gets an ARAI-certified range of 708 km

The Kia EV6 was launched in the Indian market in June 2022. The electric crossover has a maximum range of 528 km (WLTP cycle). However, as per ARAI, the EV offers a much longer range under Indian driving conditions.

The Kia EV6 GT Line AWD variant packs a dual-motor setup offering 321 BHP and 605 Nm. It has an ARAI-certified range of 708 km.

The EV6 uses a 77.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which can be recharged from 10-80% in 18 minutes using a 350 kW fast charger, while a 50 kW fast charger takes 73 minutes.

The Kia EV6 is imported into India via the CBU route. It is priced from Rs 59.95 lakh (ex-showroom). Kia has delivered 200 units of the EV6 in India so far and still has a backlog of more than 150 units.

Re: Kia EV6 Preview | Driven @ Buddh

ARAI really needs to revaluate how they measure range in EV.
I am pretty sure 99.9% of the users will never even reach close to 700KM as the claimed range.

Re: Kia EV6 Preview | Driven @ Buddh

I have seen this car in flesh (matt grey) finish in Bangalore Eco World Campus last month. I have not seen a more stunning and a head turner car than this ever! ITS JUST NEAT from every angle. Even if the real world mileage is 70-75% of what is claimed, i think it will be a good range. Lets wait for the real life reviews.

I want the same stuff guys at ARAI are smoking.
There is not a single number as useless as the ARAI rating.

Re: Kia EV6 Preview | Driven @ Buddh

A generic question - Will the EV6 be more fun to drive than the M340i? They are both roughly the same price and I think the power figs are also roughly the same. But will the EV6 be faster than the BMW, will it corner better, will the in-gear acceleration times be better..etc?

Re: Kia EV6 Preview | Driven @ Buddh

Heard an interesting story from the security guard of one of the hotels in Goa that has fast charger available. He said an EV6 "blew up" the fast charger not just at this hotel but also at one other sister hotel of the same group on the same day. I found it funny that an EV damaged the charger. Don't remember seeing any news around it. Hotel management now has asked the guards to keep a register with EV owner contact details.
Any expert comments if this is possible at all? Was EV6 trying to pull in more than charger's capacity? Or such an incident really happened?
P.S.: I charged my ZS EV successfully at the same repaired charger (30kw).
