My Kia EV6: 21 likes & 10 dislikes after a month of ownership

I used to think the G20 330i is a head-turner, but my god, this car has almost caused several bikers to lose balance and rear-end someone!

Hi all,

Posting after a really long to help out everyone know more about the EV6. I will try to make this as detailed as I can. Apologies in advance for any mistakes made or wrong facts posted.

The decision to get the EV6 was made after owning the ZS EV for a year and driving that for about 30K km. The decision was not easy. It was between the Kodiaq Sportline Nardo Grey vs the EV6. Having booked both, the decision was going to be whichever car was delivered first. But I drove neither of them before booking. Ended up getting a call in the first week of November about the black EV6 being available and now in the middle of December, with still no news on the Kodiaq (both cars booked in July).

Coming to EV6, I have named her Kaalia because of no good reason. I used to think the G20 330i is a head-turner, but my God, this car has almost caused several bikers to lose balance and rear-end someone!

The build quality of this car is simply phenomenal for a Kia. From the sound deadening to the tech features, I think this car is definitely worth it, but maybe for a price tag of 55-60 lakhs instead of 70. After driving it for 2000 km in a month, here are my views on the car.

To begin with, the bad/missing features:

Good:

TLDR: It’s a great car and you should get it if you can. The white and black, in my opinion, look the best and the rest (red, matte grey and blue) are beautiful.

It’s a unique and striking car. An extremely capable, practical, and fast daily driver. This car has made me drive the 330i a lot less and I did not think that would ever happen. The green EV plates look really good on this blacked-out beauty.

Here’s what GTO had to say on the matter:

Congrats CarbonFume! The EV6 is one heck of an EV and a true showcase of the capability + ambition of Kia. I absolutely love it. Would any day buy it even over the BMW i4. The styling, quality & EV powertrain are beautiful.

You should absolutely buy an additional wheel & tyre, whether from Kia or an aftermarket alloy wheel with the same PCD. Impossible to travel long distances in India without one. But it will chew up your boot space. Am guessing there is no wheel well?

How about some more details on the driving experience, acceleration, handling etc.?

Congrats again and wishing you a minimum of 100,000 happy km with your EV6.
