Not available in showrooms, and definitely not on the roads, yet, the ongoing WapCar Auto Show 2022 is the only place you can currently see, touch and feel the stellar new Kia EV6.

Imported from Korea (CBU), the Kia EV6 is offered in a sole long-range GT Line AWD, priced at RM 300,688 inclusive SST.

The EV6's design was a collaborative effort across three Kia's Namyang (Korea), Frankfurt (Germany), and Irvine (California) design studios, led by lead designer Karim Habib.

The EV6 features dual LED projector headlamps with DRLs and High Beam Assist (HBA).

At the back, the EV6 features LED combination taillamps. Note the charge port that resides just inside of the taillamps.

The EV6 measures 4,695 mm long, 1,890 mm wide, and 1,550 mm tall. That’s bigger than a Honda CR-V! Its 2,900 mm wheelbase is longer than an Accord!

The EV6 features massive 20-inch wheels, wrapped in 255/45 R20 tyres.

Well, that's not quite the engine, but the EV6 powertrain sees two electric motors, one on each axle delivering a total of 325 PS (239 kW) and 605 Nm to all four wheels.

The EV6 draws power, from a water-cooled 77.4 kWh high voltage battery, which is 4.8 kWh larger than the unit supplied in its close-sibling, the Hyundai Ioniq 5

On the inside, the EV6 features a 12.3-inch central infotainment screen which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (wired). Another 12.3-inch screen features for the main instrument cluster.

Despite its low slung roofline, the EV6 features decent headroom and legroom at the rear.

The boot features a powered tailgate with 520-litre volume, more than enough space for a family of five. The rear seats also fold 60:40, for transporting long items.

There's even a front trunk - or frunk - with 20-litres of space. Oddly, Kia says this is ideal for storing footwear.

Besides its high-tech powertrain, the EV6 is chock-full of active and passive safety features. Seven airbags, hill-start assist, with the full suite of advance driving aids (ADAS) which include Adaptive Cruise Control, a 360-degree parking camera, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert with Collision Avoidance.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
