2023 Kia EV6 Range

2023 Kia EV6 Range

The 2023 Kia EV6 is a battery electric compact crossover SUV manufactured by Kia Motors. The EV6 was introduced in 2021 and hit the market for the 2022 model year. The Kia EV6 competes against other electric vehicles like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Tesla Model Y. In this article, we will explore the all electric range on the 2023 EV6.

What is the range of the 2023 Kia EV6?

The range of an electric vehicle refers to the number of miles that can be driven on a fully-charged battery. The 2023 Kia EV6 can get up to an EPA-estimated 310 miles of range. 

EV6 Range By Trim Level

Many factors will impact the electric range of the 2023 EV6. For example, range is reduced when the EV6 is equipped with an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) drivetrain as the battery is forced to power two motors rather than one. Additionally, the power output of the motor will impact range as a higher power output will reduce battery life more quickly. Below, we’ve broken out the 2023 EV6 all electric range by trim level.

2023 Kia EV6 Wind (RWD) Range: 310 miles

2023 Kia EV6 Wind (e-AWD) Range: 282 miles

2023 Kia EV6 GT-Line (RWD) Range: 310 miles

2023 Kia EV6 GT-Line (e-AWD) Range: 252 miles

2023 Kia EV6 GT (e-AWD) Range: 206 miles

Factors Affecting the Range of the EV6

An EV’s range is meant to provide an equivalent to the traditional miles per gallon (mpg) of a gasoline engine. However, while gasoline MPG will vary based on certain factors an electric vehicle’s range will vary widely. For example, extreme temperatures, whether cold or hot, will reduce the maximum range achieved. Aggressive braking will also reduce total range as electric vehicles use a regenerative braking system to recapture energy and recharge the battery. The total range statistics are meant to give a “ballpark” estimate rather than a firm and reliable statistic. Our advice is to not venture too far away from a charging station or you may be stuck walking to your destination.
