May 4, 2021– Kia has opened factory orders for the ground breaking EV6 following a successful European reservation phase. The brand obtained 33,000 prospects, including 7,300 reservations. On top of that, more than 26,000 customers showed interest in Kia’s first dedicated battery electric vehicle. Thanks to this remarkable performance, Kia already secures 300% of the expected sales volume for 2021. Customers will be able to order the EV6 from their local dealer from today, ahead of production starting mid-2021.
“It’s extremely encouraging as Kia looks ahead to the future of electric mobility with the new EV6, based on our new dedicated EV platform (E-GMP)”, said Jason Jeong, President at Kia Europe. “The high number of customers who have already put their name down for the EV6 highlights the strong demand and we are confident that the launch of the EV6 will be also very successful.”
Customers can decide at their nearest Kia dealer which specification, trim and options they would like to choose, making sure that their EV6 model is bespoke to their lifestyle needs. They will be able to configure their EV6 model, choosing long-range (77.4 kWh) or standard-range (58.0 kWh) battery powertrain packs as well as two-wheel (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) capability. In addition, they will also have the chance to configure numerous performance, tech and design options.
