“The launch of the EV6 was a game changing moment for Kia,” said Managing Director of Kia New Zealand, Todd McDonald.
“It was the arrival of a dynamic and eye-catching new model bristling with technology and the capability to do what very few competitors could – transport people in safety, comfort and style more than 500km on a single charge.
“Thanks to its large 77.4kWh battery which delivers up to an impressive driving range of 528km WLTP, it offers driving freedom and removes concerns about range anxiety.
“It is the car which shifted perceptions about electric vehicles and continues to win hearts and minds with its impressive array of future focussed attributes.”

The Kia EV6 Air Long Range boasts an exceptional electric range, enabling long distance travel without needing to recharge. It offers one of the most impressive ranges amongst EV’s, 528km WLTP, making it a standout choice for those seeking extended distance driving capabilities.
This amount of range provides the ability to drive Auckland to Rotorua return, Christchurch to Queenstown or Cambridge to Wellington, without the need to recharge during the trip.^
The vehicle features ultra-fast charging capabilities, allowing rapid replenishment of the battery. With its high-voltage charging system, it offers a shorter charging time compared to many other electric vehicles and is capable of a top-up charge of 100km in less than five minutes when using a DC 350kW charger.
It also delivers impressive performance, combining its electric powertrain with precise handling and responsive acceleration. Its electric motor provides instant torque, resulting in an exhilarating driving experience and a 0-100kmh sprint time of 7.3 seconds.
The EV6 Air Long Range offers a spacious and comfortable interior. It utilises Kia’s dedicated Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), providing more cabin space for both passengers and cargo. The flexible interior layout maximises space and ensures a comfortable ride for everyone, the clever design making it one of the roomiest electric vehicles in its segment.
These features make it a compelling choice for those seeking a stylish, high-performing and technologically advanced electric vehicle.
“The Kia EV6 also comes with an international award winning reputation, receiving prestigious awards such as the Red Dot ‘Innovative Products’ award, the Red Dot Awards ‘Best of the Best’ title and European Car of the Year 2022,” said Mr McDonald.
