Kia’s most powerful EV, the new EV6 GT spotted in new video

Kia is expected to reveal the new EV6 GT later this year as its most powerful electric car yet. Ahead of its official debut, Kia’s new EV6 GT was spotted in a new 360-degree video, giving us our closest look yet.

The EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated EV based on Hyundai’s E-GMP platform. After launching the EV6 in August 2021, the electric crossover is due for a facelift three years later.

This will include a sporty new GT version. Kia revealed the EV6 GT in 2022 as its most powerful vehicle yet. With up to 576 hp, the high-performance EV can hit 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.

To prove its power, Kia put the EV6 GT up against a Ferrari Roma and Lamborghini Hurcan EVO, with the sporty EV out-accelerating both of them. The dual-motor EV6 GT, starting at $61,600, is also quicker than most supercars at more than half the cost.

We’ve seen the EV6 facelift out testing a few times ahead of its debut and caught a glimpse of the GT version earlier this year.

Kia revealed the first teaser images of the upgraded EV6 earlier this month with several new design features. One of the biggest is the new daytime running lights with its “Star Map Signature Lightning” to reflect Kia’s new design theme.

After unveiling three new EVs during its first annual EV day in October, it was clear the EV6 was the odd one out based on lighting alone.

When it launches in the US, the EV6 could reach up to 370 miles EPA range, up from the current 310 miles on the long-range models. In Europe, around 600 km WLTP range is expected.

Kia also confirmed plans to launch its EV9 GT in January with “enormous power” and several other upgrades. Meanwhile, leaked images from China last month revealed the EV5 GT for the first time.
