2022 Kia EV6 US Pricing Revealed: Slightly Above Hyundai Ioniq 5

Electric Cars

Kia announced pricing for the 2022 Kia EV6 model in the U.S. market, where sales should start soon. According to Kia, the EV6 will be sold in all 50 states. The first cars are expected to “arrive in dealerships in the upcoming weeks.”

Similar to the Hyundai Ioniq 5, there will be two battery versions – 58.0 kWh (only RWD) and 77.4 kWh (RWD and AWD versions).

The South Korean manufacturer will offer three trim levels: Light, Wind and a sporty GT-Line trim. At the end of the year, the top-of-the-line GT version should join the lineup.

The pricing appears quite interesting and reminds us slightly of Hyundai Ioniq 5’s offer. The base Kia EV6 Light RWD version has an MSRP of $40,900 (+$1,215 DST), which after deducting the federal tax credit of $7,500, means $34,615. That’s $1,200 more than in the case of the base Hyundai Ioniq 5.

For $6,100 more, one could get a Wind RWD version with 77.4 kWh. The addition of the front motor for all-wheel drive increases the price by $3,900. However, the AWD also reduces the range (more on that below).

The GT-Line RWD starts at an MSRP of $51,200. In this trim, a switch to AWD requires $4,700 more. We listed also the “fully reserved” First Edition trim (1,500 units) for comparison.
