2022 Kia EV6: first official photos…

 

That was quick. earlier today I was still posting spy shots of the 2022 Kia EV6, and now we have official pictures.
I must say, I think it looks much better than any of the illustrations I have seen before. many were guessing some really weird design under the camouflage…
The final product looks pretty clean and modern. And quite original.
Although the interior seems to take a more conventional approach than the Hyundai Ioniq5. Which is great.
Since these 2 need to be different. 
Again, let’s hope they price it right. As I mentioned before, this absolutely has to be cheaper than tesla, no matter how good it is. Tesla is considered a luxury brand with considerable brand equity.
Kia and Hyundai are still far from that. 
Plus, they have to make room for the luxury Genesis version…
Overall, I think this is great news. Another really good-looking car. And it gives hope for the next Kia Niro. Various illustrations of that have been from bad to horrific. After seeing this,, I am sure the next Niro will be just fine.

  1. I like it more than the Ioniq, but still a little too weird looking for me. I just want a normal sedan looking EV…..that's affordable

  2. Besides sharing the same platform and power unit with the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the only noticeable similarity is the roof spoiler.

    I'm just surprised to see no "Tiger Nose" grille on this model.

    The new logo does add freshness to the brand, yet it remains to be seen if this helps the brand and if these new models finally move away from a "poor man's brand".

  3. It sure looks like the most "normal sedan" looking EV might end up being the Tesla MODEL 3. Although that interior is still not for everyone…

  4. Not crazy about the front end…I feel like it lacks character and doesn't immediately make you think of KIA.

  5. I think it looks great, though I'm surprised there's no glass roof (which everyone seems to have), or at least a sunroof, and that they didn't try to incorporate the new regular grill in some way.

  6. modern, highly functional form factor. Mordern, slick, all that.

    But I have to tell you, I feel very bored and underwhelmed. Not a home run at all. Far too anonymous.

  7. Not sure this has any bearing on the upcoming Niro's styling.. keeping my fingers crossed though because that will likely be my next ride.

  8. Very attractive. Auto design forwarding. Love the way the front hood line becomes the side fender. Gorgeous. Same for the the recti-linear lines and the curves! Nice original rear. Looking forward to seeing how it looks on the road.

  9. I am still on the fence about the rear end but it looks amazing overall. KIA will have a winner on it's hands!
