2022 Kia EV6 Trim Levels Explained

by Frank

2022 Kia EV6 Trim Levels and Standard Features Explained – A small electric vehicle (EV) that straddles the crossover and hatchback divide is the 2022 Kia EV6. There are five trim levels available for the EV6: Light (RWD), Wind (RWD), Wind (e-AWD), GT-Line (RWD), and GT-Line (e-AWD).

The 2022 Kia EV6 is a compact crossover/hatchback and the first electric car Kia has ever produced from the ground up. This indicates that, in contrast to the Niro EV (which is an electrified version of the Niro hybrid), the EV6 benefits from having been created as an EV from the start. Kia was able to give the EV6 an unusually streamlined design and reasonably large seats despite the car’s neat overall dimensions because it didn’t need an engine or other conventional components.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the EV6 share a lot of their EV technology underneath. Additionally, it is compatible with the most recent, lightning-fast public DC fast-charging stations, just like the Ioniq 5. What does that mean? According to Kia, under ideal circumstances, a 350-kW charger can charge a battery from 10 percent to 80 percent capacity in under 18 minutes and replenish 70 miles in less than five minutes.

The EV6’s interior isn’t as futuristic as other EVs’, but it’s modern and utilitarian. Wide digital screens on the dashboard are easy to see and reminiscent of Mercedes and BMWs. Physical buttons on the central console give the EV6 a more user-friendly feel than its touchscreen-only competitors.

Which 2022 Kia EV6 Trim Level To Buy?

As for which 2022 Kia EV6 to buy, I say get the Wind trim for the best value. Compared to the base Light trim, you get some desirable extras, such as increased range, an upgraded audio system, ventilated front seats and a power liftgate. If you absolutely must have all the latest and greatest advanced safety tech, however, the GT-Line is the way to go.
