Vehicle manufacturer Kia India has delivered 200 units of the Kia EV6 to its customers since its launch.
The company had initially planned to deliver 100 cars during the entire year, but that figure has already doubled. Now, the company is planning to further increase the total deliveries of the EV6 in 2022 and complete the deliveries before the end of the year by reducing the waiting period.
The Kia EV6, Kia’s first electric vehicle in the country, was launched in June this year. At the same time, the delivery of electric cars to the customers started from last month itself. Let us tell you that the Kia EV6 had already received pre-bookings of 355 units before its launch.
Myung-sik Sohn, Chief Sales Officer, Kia India, said, “The EV6 is widely regarded as one of the best cars the company has ever produced and it showcases our technology power and capability. At the launch of the EV6, we Got very positive response.
Keeping this in view, we have promised our customers that we will introduce more units of EV6 with the initial delivery of 100 units for 2022. Going forward, our focus will be on fulfilling all existing and new bookings and delivering them at the earliest. EV6 has made electric vehicles a fun and enjoyable experience for our customers and I am sure in the days to come, more EVs will be seen on Indian roads.”
The Kia EV6 is built on Kia’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). Kia claims the EV6 to offer a range of up to 708 km (ARAI certified) on a full charge. Whereas, the Kia EV6 WLTP certified (European standard) offers a range of 500 km.
In terms of features, the EV6 can compete with models from many luxury brands. The EV6 gets a flowing curved HD display screen for the driver display along with the infotainment. The front two seats get zero-gravity recline function, while features like multiple charging options, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, a power outlet under the rear seat for charging home devices, among others.
Understanding the charging hassles of customers, Kia India is working towards developing charging infrastructure in the country. As part of its EV roadmap, Kia will launch its India-centric EV in the country by 2025.
