Kia’s EV6 is one of the most advanced and attractive electric cars in the market. It boasts a sleek design, a spacious interior, and a whopping 708km range on a single charge. But despite its impressive features, the EV6 had a dismal performance in sales for the first three months of 2023. It did not sell a single unit in January, February, and March, and only one unit in June 2022.
A remarkable turnaround in June 2023
However, things changed dramatically for the EV6 in June 2023. It sold 44 units, which is a staggering 4300% increase from the same month last year. This is also a significant improvement from the 83 units it sold in May 2023, although it still represents a 47% decline month-on-month. The EV6’s sales surge in June 2023 shows that it has finally gained some traction among customers who are looking for a premium and eco-friendly vehicle.
What makes the EV6 so special?
EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated electric car, meaning that it is not based on any existing model. It is built on a new platform that allows for more flexibility and efficiency in design and engineering. The EV6 comes in two variants: the GT line and the GT. The GT line is the base model, which costs Rs 60.95 lakh and offers a range of 708km. The GT is the high-performance model, which costs Rs 65.95 lakh and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Both variants have a fast-charging capability that can replenish 80% of the battery in 18 minutes.
The EV6 also has a futuristic and elegant look, with a curved LED display, a panoramic sunroof, and a minimalist dashboard. It has plenty of space for passengers and cargo, as well as advanced safety and convenience features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot detection, and wireless smartphone charging.
This EV6 is Kia’s answer to the growing demand for electric cars in India and around the world. It is a car that combines style, performance, and sustainability in one package. It is a car that has overcome its initial challenges and proven its worth in the market. It is a car that deserves your attention.
