The range and efficiency of the 2022 Kia EV6 has been certified by the EPA. On a single full charge, the Standard Range Model can cover a distance of 232 miles. While the rear-wheel drive model can range up to 310 miles on a single charge. Adding a second motor for all-wheel drive will lower the range to 274 miles.
The 2022 KIA EV6 uses the E-GMP modular platform offering single and dual motor powertrains, as well as two battery options. The Standard Range EV6 will be a single-motor rear-drive version with a 58.0 kilowatt-hour battery and a 160 kilowatt motor providing up to 167 horsepower. Another rear-wheel drive model will offer a 77.4 kWh battery and a 160 kW motor producing 218 hp. Moving further up is the all-wheel-drive model with a 77.4-kWh battery, with a 70-kW motor up front and a 160-kW motor at the rear making a total of 313 hp and a 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds. The all-wheel-drive EV6 GT, coming in late 2022, features the same 77.4-kWh battery, with a 160-kW front motor and 270-kW rear motor producing 576 horses and a 0–60 time of under 3.5 seconds. – matches the performance of the Tesla Model Y.
On the other hand, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 has a total range of 303 miles in a single motor configuration with a 77.4-kWh battery pack. Adding a second motor drops it to a still respectable but less impressive 256 miles. The Standard Range model check-in is just 220 miles away, so it’s a bit of a give and take between the two companies despite having the same foundation. Elsewhere in the EV landscape, the base Tesla Model Y (Remote) offers 318 miles on a charge; Performance models come in at 303. The current Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV reaches 260 miles in the “Pro” configuration. Autoblog
