Kia is all set to launch the EV6 in June 2022 and the bookings for the same will commence from May 26. Ahead of its official launch, the brochure of the Kia EV6 has been leaked and we share with you all its details ranging from the features to the battery capacity, driving range and the colour options.
India bound Kia EV6 will be powered by a 77.4 kWh battery pack that will get a driving range of 528 km. In the real world, even if the range comes to 350-400 km then it is more than enough considering we are still adapting to the electric vehicles and the infrastructure.
