Kia’s Plan S strategy puts electrification at the forefront of the company’s future and sets the foundations for a full product lineup featuring 11 new battery electric vehicles by 2026. The EV6 is the first model to be launched under this new strategy and sets Kia firmly on the path to becoming a leader in the popularization of electric vehicles. Kia has given every consideration to ensuring that EV6 provides more than just zero emissions mobility. With its first dedicated EV, the company has focused on measuring and reducing its carbon footprint throughout the vehicle’s lifecycle, ranging from the acquisition of raw materials; procurement of parts; transportation of parts; vehicle assembly, distribution, use, and end-of-life recycling. The EV6 is the first model to be built on Kia’s all-new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) and offers one of the best all-electric ranges on the market. Class-leading interior space and 800V ultra-fast charging add to the new model’s prospects of becoming a game-changer in the EV market.
