The 2022 EV6 is Kia’s inaugural dedicated electric vehicle, and it’s arriving imminently to join the rapidly expanding arena of all-electric SUVs. That includes existing challengers like the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model Y and Volkswagen ID.4, as well as upcoming rivals such as its Ioniq 5 cousin, from Kia’s affiliated automaker Hyundai, and the Nissan Ariya. Now, Kia has announced the EV6’s trim levels and pricing, too.

Versus the Competition

The EV6’s starting price lands it mid-pack among competitors. The 2022 VW ID.4 starts at $41,955, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E starts at $44,995 , and the Tesla Model Y with standard AWD has a starting price of $60,190 (all prices include destination). The EV6’s starting price is also sandwiched between its upcoming rivals: The Hyundai Ioniq 5 will start at $40,925, and the Nissan Ariya is priced from $47,125.

The EV6 will offer two battery pack options: a base 58-kilowatt-hour battery or a 77.4-kWh battery in higher trims. The EV6 gets an EPA-rated range between 232 miles and 310 miles, trim depending; the 77.4-kWh battery with RWD offered on the Wind and GT-Line trims gets the most range. The EV6’s initial power figures are expected to range between 167 hp for the 58-kWh battery and 313 hp for the 77.4-kWh option, though the latecoming GT should comfortably top the other trims with an estimated 576 hp when it finally arrives.
