A few weeks ahead of their arrival at dealership, Kia America has announced pricing for its first dedicated all-electric model, the Kia EV6.
The electric crossover will be available in three different trim options in the United States – Light, Wind, and GT-Line.
Pricing will start as low as $40,900 for the EV6 Light RWD variant, up to $55,900 for the top-of-the-line EV6 GT-Line Dual Motor e-AWD model.
Only the Light and Wind models will qualify for the US federal electric vehicle tax credit, reducing those prices further by $7,500.
Trim Levels/Pricing – MSRP: (excludes $1,215 destination)
|· EV6 Light RWD||$40,900|
|· EV6 Wind RWD||$47,000|
|· EV6 Wind Dual Motor e-AWD||$50,900|
|· EV6 GT-Line RWD||$51,200|
|· EV6 GT-Line Dual Motor e-AWD||$55,900|
The EV6 has an EPA-rated range of up to 310 miles (498km) with the largest 77.4kWh battery pack. A smaller 58kWh battery pack will be available in the Light RWD variant.
Canadians are still waiting for official EV6 pricing. Based on earlier press releases from the automaker, the same trims will be offered in Canada.
EV6 owners north of the border will get one feature that will be missing on cars destined for the US. Kia Canada says a heat pump will be available “for the Canadian market specifically.”
The lack of pricing hasn’t deterred interest in the EV6, with 200 reservations for the GT-Line selling out in under 25 minutes in October last year.
