All-New, 576-HP, 2023 Kia EV6 GT
Introducing the All-New 2023 Kia EV6 GT
Kia recently revealed the all-new 2023 EV6 GT performance crossover. The 2023 EV6 GT is part of the Kia “Plan S” strategy to launch at least two battery-electric vehicles (BEV) per year and build a full line-up of 14 BEVs by 2027. The new eletric crossover is based on the award-winning E-GMP modular platform.
POWER & PERFORMANCE
The 2023 Kia EV6 GT is the most powerful Kia production vehicle ever. With a combined power output of 576 horsepower (546 lb.-ft. of torque), the EV6 GT can accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 161 mph. In independent testing performed by leading third party AMCI, the EV6 GT out-accelerated a Ferrari Roma and Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder RWD.
The EV6 GT introduces GT Drive Mode. With the push of a button on the steering wheel, GT Drive Mode optimizes the performance of the EV6 GT’s motors, braking, steering, suspension, e-LSD, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems into their most dynamic settings. Traction and stability are enhanced by an electronic Limited Slip Differential when cornering, by directing torque to the wheels with most grip. Larger ventilated front and rear disc brakes with monoblock calipers are standard.
The performance upgrades that define the EV6 GT also include a dedicated sport suspension with electronically controlled dampers and unique front suspension performance components. Dynamic damping control offers sporty handling and a balanced, comfortable ride.
The EV6 GT benefits from the ability to recharge at a rate similar to its eye-opening acceleration. World-first 800V multi-charging architecture enables ultra-fast DC charging to recharge 10 to 80 percent state-of-charge in under 18 minutes.
Innovative Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) functionality makes the EV6 GT a power source on wheels, to support everything from home improvement projects to camping and tailgating. Electricity flows from the high-energy battery to an Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU), providing 1,900 watts of power to electrical appliances, devices, tools, and recreational equipment.
The styling of 2023 Kia EV6 GT was inspired by a design philosophy called “Opposites United,” which fuses cues and inspirations from the contrasts found in nature and everyday life. On the interior, EV6 GT-only touches adorn the cabin, including lightweight front bucket seats, neon accents, and a striped motif on the upper dashboard and front center armrest. The bucket seats include vegan suede-trimmed and are inscribed with the ‘GT’ moniker and green piping. Other additional interior enhancements include: ambient lighting across the door panels, center console and dashboard delivers a soothing glow.
