Kia is celebrating the EV6 profitable The North American Utility Car Of The Yr (I stand agency in my perception that the EV6 is not a crossover) by giving it a particular version. It has a really lengthy identify and it’s inexperienced. Witness the 2023 Kia EV6 North American Utility Car of the Yr Restricted Edition. Sure, that’s its full identify. No, we’re not kidding.
Kia confirmed the restricted version EV6 at Pebble Seaside. The idea for the restricted version is a singular EV6 that mixes components of the Wind and GT-Line trims. Exterior it will get painted in a Deep Forest Inexperienced exterior paint, blacked out wheel arches, aspect remedies and entrance and rear facias together with 20-inch wheels.
Inside options Desert Beige-coloured seating with a particular North American Utility Of The Yr plaque by the rotary dial shifter. The mixture of the inexperienced exterior paint and the beige seating is one thing Kia says pays homage to “basic efficiency car styling combos.” All the opposite typical tech and driver security help options are normal.
Energy comes from a 77.4 kWh battery mixed with a 74 kWh entrance motor and a 165 kWH rear motor. Complete mixed output is 320 horsepower. No phrase on vary however provided that this identical powertrain, battery and horsepower output is on the EV6 GT-Line with all wheel drive, it’s secure to say that this restricted version EV6 will get the identical 252 miles of vary because the EV6 GT-Line.
Kia isn’t speaking about pricing but, however I see this beginning near, if not cresting, $60,000. You’re going to need to act quick if you wish to get your palms on one although. Kia is barely making 1,000 of the North American Utility Car of the Yr Restricted Version once they go on sale later this yr.
