We’re very excited to announce that the brand new, all-electric Kia will be available from EVision – very soon! If you’re looking to hire a Kia EV6, we are predicting that it will be a brilliant new addition to our ever growing fleet, and also very popular.
Fitted with a 77.4kWh battery, the EV6 has a bigger battery than the entry level 58kWh unit offered in most other EVs as standard. A bigger battery means more miles and the EV6 doesn’t disappoint.
This electric car can travel up to 316 miles on a single charge, so when you hire a Kia EV6, you’ll be guaranteed plenty of miles. We all know that an EV’s range can depend on various factors, including how often drivers use the heating or aircon. However, Kia has fitted a snazzy feature for the EV6 to avoid losing masses of miles. The EV6 features a heat pump which searches for waste heat from the vehicle’s coolant system. This means that even in temperatures below zero the car can achieve 80% of its claimed range.
A bigger battery also means more power! The EV6 can go from 0 – 60 in just 3.5 seconds – Did you know that’s actually quicker than some Tesla models?
When you do need to charge your EV, Kia has made sure it’s as easy as possible. The 800V high-speed, multi-charging system means you can charge your EV from 10 – 80% in less than 18 minutes. Now that’s impressive!
It gets better though! With ultra fast charging, in just four minutes you can add 60 miles to your EV! This makes all journeys much easier and enables you to find time for the things that really matter.
The vehicle is also equipped with a vehicle-to-load function which works as a convenient, portable electricity supply for your day to day life. It can supply up to 3.6kW of electricity meaning it can serve as an emergency power source for your home! If you hire a Kia EV6, it would also work as a portable generator for when you’re enjoying outdoor activities. How awesome is that?!
Who wants to rent a car that isn’t practical? That’s right, no one! While EVs emerge into the mainstream, most buyers will be looking for electric alternatives that aren’t too far from their traditional cars.
One of the major selling points of the EV6 is that it’s practical but still provides all the fun, speedy specs. The EV6 has a considerable amount of boot space for its size. The boot capacity sits at 520 litres, which then rises to a whopping 1,300 litres with the rear seats folded down. Think how many suitcases you could fit in on a family holiday!
There’s an additional 52 litres of space at the front of the vehicle in rear-drive models, but this drops to 20 litres in AWD cars. This is more than enough space to store the vehicle’s charging cables.
In addition to this, the EV6 will be fitted with:
- UVO Connect
- Heated front seats and steering wheel
- Ambient light system
- Rear parking sensors
- Power Adjustable Lumbar support for the driver
The EV6 will be Kia’s first electric vehicle built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This enables a diverse number of interior layouts thanks to the vehicle’s flat floor. While the EV6 has compact exterior dimensions, the 2.9m wheelbase results in cabin space similar to any large SUV. This makes the EV6 spacious and comfortable for both drivers and passengers.
Kia’s newest all-electric model is packed with modern tech too! In the centre it features a 12.3-inch curved display and touchscreen for navigation. Considering the size, this still manages to provide clean, unobstructed visibility for drivers.
It will also feature Kia’s new Augmented Reality Heads-Up display which is designed to provide you with key information for hassle free and safe trips. The AR Heads-Up display will introduce a virtual display on the windscreen that can guide you to your destination.
If you’re driving an EV, the chances are you’re keen to help our planet! EV manufacturers are becoming more innovative by finding more ways to make electric vehicles sustainable. One of the main ways is to use recycled and vegan materials to build the EV, and the EV6 is no different!
When you hire a Kia EV6, you’ll be getting an EV with vegan vehicle seats and a steering wheel. Unlike in the Polestar 2, the vegan interior cannot be traded in for a leather alternative. The EV6’s seats are also made from recycled PET plastic bottles – this is equivalent to 111 bottles!
