Kia Motors is all set to launch its new electric crossover EV6 in Nepal. Kia will expand its Nepalese product portfolio with the launch of a new electric crossover in Nepal. Continental Associates, the authorized distributor of Kia vehicles in Nepal, will commence the bookings of Kia EV6 in the coming days followed by the price announcement and launch by the beginning of 2023. Unveiled globally in March 2021, it is Kia's first electric vehicle and will be based on the Hyundai Group's dedicated Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).

Kia EV6 is powered by a Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM). The Kia EV6 is offered in multiple configurations and battery sizes. It is available with either a 58kWh battery pack or a 77.4kWh battery pack. The Kia EV6 with the 58kWh battery has a range of around 378km while the 77.4kWh battery can do up to 528km on a single charge. The bigger battery gives an increased output of 325PS and 605Nm. The EV6 will come in two configurations, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Kia also offers an 800V charging setup which can charge the battery from 10 to 80 per cent in around 18 minutes. With a 350kW charger, the EV6’s 77.4 KWh lithium-ion battery can reach 80 per cent of its charge in just 18 minutes, while a 50kW charger will take about 73 minutes. A 7kW home charger will recharge the EV6 from 10 to 100 per cent in 7 hours and 20 minutes. The EV6 will take 32 hours and 45 minutes to reach the full 10 per cent using a regular domestic plug. Once launched in Nepal, Kia will be installing fast chargers across the country. 

The Kia EV6 is equipped with a 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. It is also equipped with a WiFi hotspot, wireless smartphone charging, an optional 14 speakers Meridian audio system, a voice-activated dual-zone front AC unit, and vegan leather seat trim. It also offers several safety features including automated emergency braking, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. It also gets remote parking assistance, vehicle stability management (VSM)), electronic stability control (ESC), multiple airbags, collision mitigation (rear), aerial view camera system, and many more.

Kia EV6 price in Nepal is expected to be around NRs. 1.10 Crore to NRs. 1.20 Crore. Kia EV6 comes in five different colour options including Red, White, Black, Blue, and Gray. It will compete against the likes of the Hyundai IONIQ 5 and Tesla Model Y. Kia EV6 will be limited to 100 units in the Nepalese market and will likely go on sale by 2023. The Kia EV6 looks to be an extremely impressive product from Kia Motors and looks like a brilliant starter pack and a sign of good things to come from Kia in Nepal.
