What features make the Kia EV6 unique?
As an electric vehicle (EV) built from the ground up, Kia has integrated many features that you can only expect in EVs. The most notable of these is the Vehicle-to-load (V2L) function. Thanks to the EV6’s large battery, the V2L allows for the vehicle to essentially act as a portable power supply, providing the option to charge external equipment such as camping gear, a movie projector, or even other EVs.
The second EV6 feature that impresses is the maximum charging rate of 350 kW which can add an additional 100 km of range in just 4.5 minutes. Kia also mentions on their website that their multi-speed charging system can convert just 50 kW into 350 kW to allow for optimal charging even without the most powerful chargers.
Finally, the EV6 feature that likely caught your eye is the modern bold design. Kia claims that thanks to building the EV6 from the ground up as an EV, providing flexible dimensions to work with, their designers have introduced an incredibly unique design that is almost futuristic.
