After being seen in Malaysia for a while, the Kia EV6 is now officially on display at the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club along with the Kia Championship 2022 Professional Golf of Malaysia (PGM), which was held in collaboration with the local Kia distributor. Dinmikjaya Motors.
The EV6 is the first fully electric production model from Kia to be unveiled worldwide last March, and is produced via the Electro-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform, similar to the Hyundai Ioniq 5, which has already been launched here. The EV6 will no longer be launched in the Malaysian market, probably in the third or fourth quarter of this year.
The model on display is the GT-Line version, which features a more aggressive front apron with exterior details such as a body-colored wheelchair protector, as well as glossy black accents. The rear apron differs from the regular wind version, as well as a 20-inch rim with 255 / 45R20 tires.
In the case of the cabin, it has white highlights as well as black as the main theme. Two 12.3-inch screens have been placed on the dashboard, along with other details we can see through the window mirror such as a two-zone air conditioner system, vegan and suede leather upholstery as well as a wireless smartphone charger.
Based on the windshield’s chassis number (VIN), the EV6 on display is an all-wheel drive model with a long-range version of the power network unit, with a 77.4 kWh lithium-ion battery capable of traveling 506 kilometers. Single full charge.
It also gets two electric motors on the front and rear axles capable of producing a total power of 325 PS (321 hp or 239 kW) and a maximum torque of 605 Nm, which allows it to accelerate from only 0-100 km / h. Reached a maximum speed of 5.3 seconds and 183 km / h.
By comparison, the Max variant Max Hyundai Ioniq 5 gets a 72.6 kWh battery for a 430km range, with two 305 PS (302 hp or 225 kW) all-wheel drive electric motors and a maximum torque configuration. 605 Nm allows it to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 5.2 seconds and is capable of recording a maximum speed of 185 km / h.
Many may have seen the Ioniq 5 right in front of their eyes এটি it’s the size of a VW golf in the picture, but it’s actually so big that looking at the hatchback’s 20-inch rim, it looks like it’s only 17-inches. With 4,695 mm long, 1,890 mm wide, 1,550 mm high and 2,900 mm wheelbase, this EV6 is larger than the Ioniq 5.
However, this is only a unit that has been brought in for pre-visitation and the actual model for the specification of the Malaysian market has not yet been finalized. We expect this EV6 to be priced higher than the Ioniq 5 because it has better details such as a larger capacity battery as well as an adaptive suspension.
The Ioniq 5 is currently being sold at RM200k to RM270k (full specification with an extended warranty) and the waiting time for those who place an order has reached one year. So maybe this EV6 will sell for up to RM300k?
