Kia EV6 electric crossover debuts new design language for the brand

Kia EV6 electric crossover

First images of the EV6 reveal a new design language for the Korean brand.

 

Ahead its official world premiere later this month, Kia released the first photos of its upcoming battery electric EV6 on Sunday, and we have to say, it looks pretty darn good. In addition to being the brand’s first dedicated electric model and its first vehicle build on the new Electric-Global Modular Platform — which also underpins the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 — the EV6 will also be the first example of Kia’s new Opposites United design philosophy. That’s a lot of new ground to break, so it’s a good thing the EV6 makes such a strong first impression.

The EV6 boasts a crossover-like design with genre-bending proportions, not unlike the recently debuted Ioniq 5, but more windswept and streamlined than the angular and upright Hyundai. Up front is Kia’s new logo and a set of large headlamps connected by a narrow upper grille. Angular daytime signature lights light up with a sequential animation. Along with the larger, more aggressive lower opening — which serves an aerodynamic function — these details form what Kia’s designers are calling the “digital tiger face.” The look is supposed to evoke the spirit of the automaker’s current “tiger nose” grille, but I don’t really see it.

Depending on which member of Roadshow’s staff you ask, this rear end is either brilliant or just busy.

There’s a very cool character line that runs along the bottom of the door before angling upward to join the wrap-around taillights, which separate the steeply raked, almost Jaguar I-Pace-like rear glass and spoiler from the rest of the hatch. Dark trim around the EV6’s lower edge and wheel arches slim the silhouette somewhat, giving the whole vehicle a fairly sporty profile.

Inside, the EV6 promises to deliver more space than you’d expect from a vehicle in its class — a hallmark of the E-GMP platform — though Kia hasn’t released specific dimensions. It’s probably safe to assume that the scale isn’t too far off the Ioniq 5’s mark. Where the Hyundai features a very flat dashboard design, the EV6 wraps its cockpit around the driver’s seat, integrating the digital instrument cluster and the massive center display into one curved black panel. Ahead of the driver is a two-spoke steering wheel. Between the front seats is a floating, two-tier center console which is home to the start button, a rotary shifter and what appears to be a generous lower stowage area. Overall, the interior looks as good as the EV6’s exterior design.

We’re still waiting to learn more about the Kia EV6’s electric performance, range, charging tech and availability. We expect the numbers to stick closely to the Ioniq 5’s single and dual motor electric powertrains, meaning there should be anywhere from 218 to 306 horsepower, 258 to 446 pound-feet of torque and up to an estimated 300 miles of range on the European WLTP cycle. Then again, the Hyundai Motor Group has been putting more and more effort into differentiating the common products across its brands, so perhaps there will be surprises yet to be revealed when the electric crossover makes its debut later this month.

    My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – boxycart.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like boxycart.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website boxycart.com…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE https://talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with boxycart.com definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out boxycart.com.

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
