The Kia EV6 electric crossover is finally coming to India in two variants, GT Line RWD and GT Line AWD. The GT Line RWD is priced at Rs 5.995 lakh (ex-showroom India) while the GT Line AWD is priced at Rs 6.495 lakh (ex-showroom India). The Korean automaker’s electric flagship Kia EV6 is entering India via the CBU route and the 100 allocated to our market have already sold out. In fact, the company received an overwhelming response as it registered 355 electric vehicle reservations and will make up for the shortfall by allocating more units to India. Pre-orders for the Kia EV6 start on May 26, 2022 with an initial token amount of Rs 3 lakh. Kia’s EV expansion will be led by 15 dealerships in 12 cities, with deliveries of the new Kia EV6 starting in September 2022.

Notes
