Kia has announced the pricing for their upcoming 2022 EV6 electric SUV, stating that the base model will start at $42,115 after destination fees.

All five versions of the EV6 received pricing; the entry-level model is the EV6 Light RWD, coming in at the aforementioned price before any federal vehicle tax incentives. Kia advertises that, with the $7,500 tax credit, the EV6 can be bought starting at $34,61 (again, after destination fees).

The EV6 is available in three trims: the Light, Wind, and GT-Line, all of which are standard rear-wheel drive. The EV6 Wind RWD starts at $48,215; the GT-Line will start at $52,415. The Wind and GT-Line models can be upgraded with “Dual Motor e-AWD,” the EV6’s all-wheel drive system. This addition will add an additional $3,900 to the Wind model, bringing the total to $52,115 , and $4,700 to the GT-Line, bringing the total to $57,115.

The EV6 Light RWD is equipped with a 58 kWh battery and 168 kW rear motor, delivering a maximum of 167 horsepower and an estimated range of 232 miles. The Wind and GT-Line RWD models bump that up to a 77.4 kWh battery; utilizing the same 168 kW motor in the rear, but outputting 225 horsepower and an estimated range of 310 miles. AWD models will use the same 77.4 kWh battery with an additional 74 kW motor in the front (and a 165 kW rear motor). This combination can put down 320 horsepower, with a slightly lower estimated range of 274 miles.

Thanks to it's 800 volt architecture and Kia’s new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the EV6 will be able to charge from 10-80 percent in approximately 18 minutes (with use of a proper DC fast charger)-- up to 217 miles of range. All EV6 buyers will receive a charging credit of 1,000 kWh, usable over a 3-year partnership.

Eventually, a GT performance model will make its debut, cranking out an estimated 576 horsepower, with a 0-60 mph time of less than 3.5 seconds. According to Kia, this model will utilize a Dual Motor e-AWD system, but with a 160 kW motor in the front and a 270 kW motor in the rear. As of now, the GT isn’t expected to reach dealers until later in the year.

The 2022 EV6 is said to arrive at dealerships in the coming weeks, and we’ll have plenty more on it soon right here on MotorWeek!
