Kia Shows off Design of EV6, Brand’s First Purpose-Built Electric

New designs for new Kias

  • New shape, inaugurates Digital Tiger Nose grille

  • Full reveal set for later this month


This is the Kia EV6, the brand’s first EV designed and built as an electric from the start, using Kia’s new dedicated platform called E-GMP. The electric crossover says goodbye to the Tiger nose in favour of something they call “Digital Tiger Face” but looks a lot like VW’s ID models to us.

Kia calls the full vehicle design philosophy “Opposites United” saying it takes inspiration “from the contrasts found in nature and humanity.” That means a new visual identity from the brand with a mix of natural sculptural shapes as well as sharp styling elements. The EV6 is a preview of what the rest of Kia’s new generation of EVs as well as its conventional models will look like, though expect it to evolve with each new model. An LED bar running from wheel arch to wheel arch across the tail is one of the most unique features of the vehicle, with a shiny trim strip mirroring it for an extra interesting effect.

The interior takes advantage of electrification to offer more space and an airier feel. A wide dashboard and infotainment screen are integrated and link to help surround the driver, while it’s not yet clear if the center console will move out of the way like that in the Hyundai Ioniq5 which shares the platform. Haptic buttons control the climate system.

Kia says the seats are slim and lightweight with new fabrics created from recycled materials, they also appear to have adjustment controls on the inside bolster, an unusual feature we’ll want to investigate further.

The Kia EV6 will be fully revealed later this month.
