Kia will enter the Indian market with the EV6 in the electric vehicle car segment. The car was launched in the South Korean market last year. It is also the first electric model developed by Kia. It is believed that it will be launched in India in the first week of June. Meanwhile, its pre-booking will start from May 26. It has been named the 2022 European Car of the Year. New reports have revealed that this electric car will have red, black, white and silver options. The company says that its limited units will also be sold in India.
Only 100 units will be sold in India
Only 100 units of the new Kia EV6 will be sold in India. It is believed that the booking may end in a few minutes or hours as soon as it starts. However, the company has not yet announced the price, but to buy this electric car from Kia, luck must be high. Apart from EV6, the company is also going to trademark EV6 Lite, EV6 Air, EV6 Water and EV6 Earth.

Range will be more than 500km
It is unknown at this time what range the Kia EV6 will have, but given the electric car already in the Indian market, the company can offer the maximum range. It is believed that if the Kia EV6 also gets a 58 kW-R battery pack, it will generate 170 bhp of power and 350 Nm of peak torque. This will increase the range of the car to more than 500Km in a single charge. It will get a fast charger, which will charge the car up to 80% in 20 minutes.
Fast charging and more space
