The company said that the EV6 is equipped with intuitive and easily accessible connectivity, as the information and augmented reality systems complement the driving experience by minimising distractions and appealing to the senses.
As we reported, the EV6 is based on the modular E-GMP platform, which allows for a flat cabin floor and boasts class-leading internal dimensions. Two battery sizes will be available – 77.4kWh and 58kWh
There are two curved 12.3-inch high-definition widescreens wrapping around the driver to provide easy access to key vehicle information at a glance. Directly in front of the driver is a customisable ”cluster screen”, which displays information such as speed, remaining all-electric range and state of charge.
Adjacent is a central display screen combining the navigation, infotainment, and menu systems. These screens are paired together in a seamless curve, creating a panoramic feeling that is immersive and unobstructed under all driving conditions. The glass material is “chemically strengthened glass” for better visibility and robustness.
From the automatic flush handles that emerge from the car body, through to the intuitive touch-sensitive interfaces and the Augmented Reality head-up display, Kia says that every journey in the EV6 is designed to improve the human-machine interaction and promote a sense of well-being.
“We want our products to deliver an instinctive and natural experience that improves the daily lives of our customers,” commented Jason Jeong, President of Kia Europe. “Our aim is to design the physical experience of our brand and to create original, inventive, and exciting electric vehicles.”
Also, the advanced onboard tech smoothly integrates the driver and EV6 via the head-up display system with Augmented Reality technology – another offering normally reserved until now for premium vehicles.
As we reported, the baseline EV6 will start from £40,895, while sports-inspired EV6 GT-line models start from £43,895. Pricing for the high-performance GT model starts from £58,295.
