With a waiting list of more than two years long, more awards won than Hollywood'sHollywood's best actors, and technologies so advanced even NASA doesn'tdoesn't have access to it, the Kia EV6 is nothing but a success story. Although Kia could have sat on the EV6 popularity for a decade without doing anything, the Korean manufacturer decided to give the world an even better version of its electric SUV. So good the Kia EV6 GT might be the best car in the world. 

 

I've recently watched a video where some automotive journalists take a KIA EV6 GT to the test by racing it against a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Typically, this is the kind of stuff that wouldn'twouldn't make any sense. One is the best exotic car in the world, and the other should be your average grocery-getter. I hope you understand I used the word should because it is far from being just that. I mean, you could buy the EV6 GT to get regular stuff done, but at least now you know you would have an authentic Korean missile between your hands. By the way, if you are wondering, the Lamborghini won the race, but not by much.

The EV6 isn'tisn't Kia'sKia's first attempt at an electric vehicle, but the recipe is a bit different here. The Korean SUV has been built on the same platform as the Hyundai IONIQ 5, another great success story. These are the new generation of the electric automobile era. Not only are they futuristic looking, but they are full of high-end technologies and now almost as fast as one of the craziest cars in the world. This shows how great electric vehicle potential really is, even for a vehicle suited for the average joe. 

 

Where the letter GT makes the biggest difference is under the hood or anywhere the battery pack and electric motors are situations, I shall say. The Korean SUV is equipped with two electric motors producing a combined power of 576 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque. This allows the 2023 Kia EV6 GT to reach 100 km/h in less than 3.55 seconds. Kia is saying the EV6 GT can be driven for 332 km on a single charge and can benefit from 10 to 80 % in 18 minutes only. 

 

The Kia EV6 GT comes with a few unique options, such as its 21-inch wheels and a lime-green interior trim. 

 

It must be expensive, right?

 

After all, I have said so far, I am sure you are expecting the Kia EV6 GT to be expensive, and it is if you are comparing it to other models in the same brand or the same format. However, if you compare the numbers, the Kia EV6 GT is quite a steal, with a starting price of $74,495. There are few cars you can get with the same level of performance and a perfect combination of technologies and built quality so advanced.
