Kia is preparing to launch its first fully electric vehicle for the mass market in North America, the EV6. Part of any such rollout is at least a preliminary estimate of mileage or fuel economy, however the vehicle defines it. Today, Kia issued findings from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which performs those evaluations, that the 2022 Kia EV6 has a certified maximum all-electric range, or AER, of 310 miles on a single charge. The test reflected a 2022 EV6 equipped with a 77 kWh battery and operating with rear-wheel drive only.
Doing the math, the EPA certification allows the EV6 to have an overall efficiency level of 4.0 miles per kilowatt-hour. The EV6 will also be desirably offered with all-wheel drive which the EPA certified at an AER of 274 miles per charge. The EV6, which has an attractive filial resemblance to the Hyundai Veloster sport coupe, goes on sale in the first quarter of 2022. Among its advertised attributes are ultra-fast charging capability and a flat floor with superior V2L functionality.
