2022 Kia EV6 First Edition

 The 2022 Kia EV6 is possibly Kia's most daring and exciting move yet. It's not surprising, though.

This is a company that has progressed from making meek econoboxes (earlier Rio iterations) to class-leading crossovers (the Telluride) and fascinating drivers' machines (the Stinger). It has now developed an entirely new electric vehicle — the EV in EV6 stands for that — on a specific platform. And it isn't up against underwhelming efforts like the Nissan Leaf. It will compete with Tesla.

The price of the limited-edition EV6 First Edition starts at $58,500. This trim level includes standard all-wheel drive as well as 20-inch wheels, numbered badging, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and a heat pump (a more fuel-efficient way of heating or cooling an EV).

It could be described as a high-riding hatchback in terms of body style. The Tesla Model Y fills a similar functional and aesthetic void. However, the significance of what it sounds like quickly fades when we see what it looks like. Sleek, sharp, and unmistakably different from any other Kia.

The Kia EV6 has a maximum range of 310 miles. The Tesla Model Y has a range of 326 miles. The new Kia EV6 is now available in every state. Late in 2022, a high-performance GT model will be released. This sporty electric Kia is built on the same platform as the all-electric Hyundai Ioniq 5. The Kia EV6 competes with the Volkswagen ID.4 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E, in addition to the Tesla Model Y. And, yes, semi-autonomous driving is a possibility.
