This is how fast the upcoming Kia EV6 top-of-the-line GT trim is going to be
The 2022 Kia EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated EV and is easily one of the most-awaited all-electric crossover SUVs of this year. Although it will take some more time to come to the US, with deliveries expected to start only early next year, we are already excited by its impressive drive range and its Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). Another thing we are most excited about is the flagship Kia EV6 GT trim which is going to give even the fastest sports cars a run for their money. Wanna know how fast the Kia EV6 GT is? Keep reading this blog post from Airport Kia of Naples, FL to find out.
2022 Kia EV6 GT AWD Electric Drivetrain
The 2022 Kia EV6 GT will be the top dog in the EV6 lineup, which means it gets the most powerful electric drivetrain of the lot. It will come in an all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration with two powerful electric motors – one powering the front wheels and the other powering the rear. It will also get the bigger 77.4 kWh battery pack as standard. For comparison, the base Kia EV6 will be powered by a single electric motor and a 58-kWh battery.
The EV6 GT’s powerful front and rear electric motors produce a combined output of a sports car-rivaling 577 hp.
So how fast is it going to be?
With the kind of power that its all-electric powertrain produces combined with an aerodynamic design and light-weight chassis, the EV6 GT can complete the 0-60 mph sprint in less than 3.5 seconds, which is faster than most sports cars out there. While, in terms of top speed, the Kia EV6 GT tops out at 162 mph. Impressive, ain’t it?
