Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Kia EV6 GT. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 38 hours 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 23h45m 10 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 11h45m 20 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 8 hours 29 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 8 hours 29 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Kia EV6 GT.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)

All about the Kia EV6 GT

Pricing

The Kia EV6 GT has an On The Road Price (OTR) of £58,295. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Kia EV6 GT is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Kia EV6 GT is 430 kW (577 hp). The maximum torque is 546 lb-ft. The Kia EV6 GT is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. The top speed is 162 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Kia EV6 GT has a total capacity of 77.4 kWh. The usable capacity is 74 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 230 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 165 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 330 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 8 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 11 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 20 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 38 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 233 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 200 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 20 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Kia EV6 GT is about 322 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 126 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 448 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 224 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Kia EV6 GT emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
