The Kia EV6 uses the Hyundai Global-Electric Modular Platform which is also used by the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Genesis GV60. This platform has proven itself in the market as a very impressive EV platform.

The model uses a 77.4 kWh battery pack and can cover a distance of 528 km (328 miles) on a single charge. For a speed of 0-100 km / h (62 mph) takes 7.3 seconds. Pricing for the Kia EV6 Air RWD starts at AU$67,990 ($48,768).
The second model variant is the EV6 GT-Line which is an RWD variant with the same powertrain as the Air RWD but comes with 20-inch wheels that reduce its range to 504 km (313 miles). Pricing for the EV6 GT-Line RWD starts at AU$74,990 ($53,789).
