Kia’s has released some teaser images and videos of its first dedicated electric vehicle (EV), the EV6.
It will be the first of Kia’s next-generation EVs to be developed under a new design philosophy that represents their shifting focus towards electrification.
“EV6 is the embodiment of both our brand purpose, ‘Movement that inspires’, and our new design philosophy. It has been designed to inspire every journey by offering an instinctive and natural experience that improves the daily lives of our customers, and provide user ownership that is simple, intuitive and integrated,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design Center. “Our aim is to design the physical experience of our brand and to create bold, original and inventive electric vehicles.”
According to the South Korean automaker, the EV6 is built on the company’s new EV platform (Electric-Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP). Based on teaser images the vehicle’s profile looks similar to the Mustang Mach-E with a long, low-slung appearance.
The company also showed off a pair of videos of the headlights and taillights. Both feature detailed LED setups with sequenced illumination.
Not much else is known about the electric crossover. The company said we’ll learn more at its premier during the first quarter of 2021.
With less than three weeks to go in the quarter, we’re looking forward to seeing what Kia has to offer in their first dedicated EV.
