The Kia EV6 GT will make its dynamic debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Velocity (23-26 June). The all-electric superior-performance crossover will be taking on the Festival’s renowned hillclimb several instances all through the weekend, demonstrating its segment-defining overall performance in general public for the extremely first time.
The EV6 GT combines exhilarating functionality, initially-class lengthy-distance vacation capabilities, ultra-rapidly charging tech, and an extraordinary genuine-globe driving variety for easy cross-country touring.
It is also Kia’s most strong generation auto to date. Based on Kia’s sophisticated Electric-World-wide Modular System (E-GMP), its all-electric dual-motor powertrain delivers 577 bhp (585 PS) and 740 Nm torque. Great for Goodwood’s popular hillclimb, these qualifications help the EV6 GT to speed up from -to-62mph in just 3.5 seconds. It features a leading pace of 162 mph (260 km/h).
The car also attributes a GT button on the steering, activating its ‘GT’ method. This automatically optimises the vehicle’s e-motors, braking, steering, suspension, e-LSD and Digital Security Handle (ESC) units for their most dynamic configurations for a more partaking push. Drivers can also tailor the car’s trip, managing and general performance traits to suit their individual preferences by picking out the ‘My Drive’ method.
The motor vehicle will be driven in the course of the weekend by rally pro Jade Paveley. The perfect driver to tackle the 9-corner, 1.16-mile (1.86-km) monitor, Jade was 2021 British Rally Cross Nation Championship (BXCC) Course T2 Champion and 2018 Junior Welsh Tarmac Rally Champion. She is also the end-of-phase reporter for the Earth Rally Championship and European Entire world Rally Championship, and Advertising and marketing Director for Llandudno Kia, a Kia dealership in North Wales.
Among drives, the EV6 GT will be on show throughout the function in the ‘First Glance Paddock’. One of two new EVs that Kia will exhibit at the Competition of Pace, the all-new Niro EV will also be proven at the function in the ‘Electric Avenue’ spot.
