2023 Kia EV6 GT is the Brand’s Most Powerful and Expensive Vehicle Ever

This electric Kia EV6 to romps to 100km/h in only 3.55 seconds

  • Pricing starts at $74,495.

  • Its dual motor layout produces 576hp.

The Kia EV6, almost instantly, became one of our favorite EVs after we first drive it early this year. We loved everything about it including styling, performance, and value. And now, the new 2023 EV6 GT shows up and nothing’s changed.

Kia Unveils the EV6 GT, its Most Powerful Model Ever

For $74,495, the GT is still sleek and handsome. And it’s still a good deal. Also, it’s going to be insanely fast. Thanks to the 77.4-kWh battery feeding the front 160-kW motor and rear 270-kW motor for a total of 576hp and 545 lb-ft of torque, the EV6 GT now rivals the likes of the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E GT in speed and power.

But, in true Kia form, the EV6 GT will be a relative bargain compared to these two alternatives. The Mach-E GT Performance, the only GT in Canada, is priced from an eye-watering $97,495. The Model Y Performance is slightly less expensive but still rings in at $90,000. Neither is better equipped or faster. The Tesla has a range advantage on paper, however.

“The EV6 was quickly established as the halo for Kia’s new brand identity and the physical representation of the company’s future under its Plan S strategy,” says Elias El-Achhab, VP and COO of Kia Canada. “Now introducing the fastest production Kia ever, the EV6 GT demonstrates Kia’s continuous ability to shatter boundaries and expectations.”

The 2023 Kia EV6 GT should go on before the end of 2022.
