Kia EV6 Facelift

Now that the EV6 has reached three years in the market, Kia is set to unveil an update for its very first battery-electric compact crossover. Through a teaser image dubbed "The New EV6," Kia teased the updated model's silhouette and redesigned front and rear lamps.

Put side-by-side with the current EV6, the facelifted version will get new daytime running lights (DRL) featuring Star-map Signature Lighting, elevating its aesthetic with a dynamic and futuristic touch. In addition, the facelift will also introduce a funky new design for the EV6’s wing mirrors, featuring sharp cuts along the edges.

Built upon Hyundai Motor Group's electric vehicle-specific platform E-GMP, the EV6 has garnered widespread praise for its design and electrification capabilities. Speaking on the E-GMP, while technical specifications are slated for release later this month, it is anticipated that the refreshed EV6 will incorporate a larger 84 kWh battery, an upgrade from the previous 77.4 kWh. If you may remember,  this 84 kWh battery pack is also the same one introduced to the IONIQ 5 facelift that Hyundai unveiled back in March.

With this enhancement, an improvement in driving range is expected across the EV6 lineup. Presently, the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Air model boasts 528 km, the RWD GT-Line claims 504 km, the all-wheel-drive (AWD) GT-Line offers 484 km, and the GT AWD delivers 424 km of driving range.

As for tech features, a likely candidate to be included in the update list is Hyundai and Kia's newest 'ccNC' infotainment software. It will likely come equipped with dual 12.3-inch screens, and there's a possibility of an extra 5.0-inch panel dedicated to air-conditioning controls, much like the one equipped in the EV6’s bigger brother, the EV9.

Full technical specifications will be unveiled later this month, for now, you can check out the current Kia EV6 on the AutoDeal Car Guide to see its specs, prices, and even our reviews.
