Deadline looms for Kia EV6 pre-reservations
Drivers and fleets have a last chance to secure an early ordering slot for the forthcoming Kia EV6.
Revealed last month, the EV6 electric crossover is Kia’s first car to be based on the Hyundai Motor Group’s bespoke E-GMP platform and the first of 11 new battery electric vehicles due under Kia’s ‘Plan S’ strategy first revealed last year.
Priced from £40,895, the EV6 offers multiple powertrain configurations, including long-range (77.4kWh) and standard-range (58.0kWh) battery packs, giving a range of up to 316 miles. It will also be Kia’s first electric vehicle to be available with two-wheel or four-wheel drive options, and offers 800V and 400V charging capabilities.
The pre-reservation process enables customers to secure an early ordering slot for the new EV6 via the Kia UK website, with a fully refundable £100 charge. Pre-reservation customers will be invited to place their order during an exclusive two-week ordering period in May, ahead of general sale. First UK deliveries of the EV6 start from October 2021.
Customers also have a last chance to pre-reserve the 576bhp EV6 GT, which features a dual-motor all-wheel drive system enabling it to accelerate from 0-to-62mph in 3.5 seconds. First UK customer deliveries of the new high-performance GT BEV are due from October 2022, with the ordering window closing at the end of April until 2022.
Pre-reservation customers placing an order will also benefit from a tailored charging service, featuring one year’s free subscription to KiaCharge Plus, alongside access to Ionity’s pan-European ultra-rapid EV charging network.
