    Default Kia EV6 Debut

    2A8A966F-4FBC-452B-A277-9B2E218396DC.jpeg



    577hp AWD
    0-100 in 3.5 seconds
    Tow hitch (prob only 100km of towing range tho)
    Alcantara buckets from the Veloster N
    800V charging as fast as Taycan
    Probably around 80k CAD

    Checks a lot of boxes. Put a deposit down on one today.

    At some point I gotta back up my comments of not being a MB fanboy.

    It looks better than a model 3 at least. Not that that’s an accomplishment.

    I support this. Basically the e-stinger, which is good.

    I don’t think it’s out for another year. Just wanted to get my name on it once more details come out and it’s the right fit. So far looks like it’s 90% what we want to replace the wagon.

    I went to Northland Kia first, they did not present me with the 4 squares, but the staff was super nice. GM explained that they’ve been trying to be EV certified for years now with Kia being stingy and only having 1 dealer available for EVs in Alberta. Sent me there down south to 130th. Ordered it there. A little sad coming home driving by old race city.

    Yeah for sure. That’s a neat new strip of dealers though, Gigantic buildings.

    Wow. The sun rose from the West today. I can see the value in this one and would consider over any ICE only daily driven utility vehicle. I don't see it as a "Kia" brand anymore with this. It's the whole Korean technology and design of cars today that's getting me excited. Including the Genesis models and hope they will have hybrids and EV soon. Checks off so many boxes that I may finally be able to overcome the EV range anxiety. So awesome cars are now packing crazy tech and designs instead of traditional incremental improvements. Thanks Tesla!

    considering EVs like this Kia share far more with cell phones than they do with legacy ICE cars, I think the Koreans will start to do really well.

    As Chris Harris says - cars are now basically just giant skateboards of batteries with an interior and body plunked on them.

    I can't describe how excited this new future makes me!!

    Is that the most expensive car you can buy from kia? How come these Korean brands dont have a luxury brand like every other car maker around?

    I gotta say if I was buying an EV there is no way I would be spending upwards of $100K on a Model S or a Taycan and the likes...at least I don't think so.

    So options such as this or a recently announced Genesis concept are great. Kia or not, that thing looks freaking great and for me personally since an EV will never be my only vehicle, I would definitely consider them as a daily/highway option. I just really hope they can implement a better charging network to make regular highway driving an actual possibility.

    And good news for you! It’s a Kia, so probably available as a short term rental as part of their usual fleet!

    I love the Taycan, but ya, I’m in a different league than Jordan. Only thing we have in common is justifying the silly cost for a little bit faster. 130k is basically my limit on cars so the Taycan just became too rich for my blood. As much as my kids love the farting Tesla, I can not stand the interior. While I have no idea how the EV6 interior is going to look, I spent a bunch of time in the stinger and Telluride to get a sense of what the baseline looks like, and aside from some shoddy leather/stitching work on the telluride, the non leather interior looks pretty good. It’s no Lexus in attention to detail, or great use of plastics like on the base MBs, I’d say it’s comparable to VW or even base Audi.

    As for charging, I’ve been looking at our usual BC routes for years now, all the way back when even Tesla’s can barely do our routes in winter. Charging speed still kinda sucks, only 200kw speeds between Canmore and Kamloops. Probably be better by the time the ev6 arrives at the rate it’s been improving. For us, there’s chargers that’ll get us everywhere we usually go on long trips, been solid for a year already.

    I like the EV6 seats?

    I think I could see getting a PHEV SUV for trips and wife/baby mobile. I prefer the X5, but my wife wants to try an Audi so we will see what we do when the NX lease is up. SUV where all your in city driving electric but range anxiety free if you want to go farther is something I could see.

    I’d get another Lexus but I haven’t seen anything particularly interesting out of them in this segment since... ever.

    I don’t feel the need for my family SUV to be interesting or cool so seems like a logical place for a little EV time.

    Don’t get me wrong, my interests aren’t EV for the sake of EV. Having a family hauler that gives me straight line speed is a nice combo. Hell if they made a hellcat Pacifica I would buy that. I’m not in it to save gas or the environment.
