It's been a worldwind few weeks for the Kia EV6. Not only did it break the world record for shortest charge time required to cross North America (a title previously held by Tesla), it has now been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2022 car of the year. Marking the 4th time that Kia has been nominated for Car of the Year, this nomination highlights their dedication to the EV market and modern mobility.
A highly innovative, electric crossover, the Kia EV6 was provisionally listed among a field of over 60 new models, with the 7 finalists narrowed down by 61 jurors across 23 countires. The overall winner of this prestigous award will be announced in February.
The EV6 has been an unprecedented success for Kia, making a big impact on global markets. Thanks to its 528km range, ultra-fast charging and exceptional performance, the Kia EV6 has captured the imagination of the media and public alike, with pre-orders booked at break-neck speads after going on sale in October.
The Kia brand reinvented itself at the beginning of 2021 with a new name, new logo and revived design ethos named ‘Opposites United’. The EV6 is the first vehicle launched under this new direction and is Kia’s first dedicated battery electric vehicle based on its all-new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).
Jason Jeong, President at Kia Europe, commented: “Kia is proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the greatest examples of modern mobility. After the two nominations of Ceed in its first and third generation and the one for Stinger, the nomination of the brand new EV6 is recognition of our progress and highlights our commitment to providing sustainable mobility solutions. We wish all other nominees the best of luck in the Car of the Year Awards”. The Kia EV6 is available to view at Gowan Motors today.
