Kia reveals new design philosophy and full images of EV6.
The new design Kia EV6, the marque first battery electric vehicle, the new design identity is previewed in official images prior to the EV’s global debut. The adoption of Tiger Nose Grill as a new generation design language has become a big topic as its design imitates BMW front Grill. In South Korea, BMW is making noise that it has slammed Kia Tiger Nose Grill.
In the EV6, the updated design philosophy is evident through the new face, with sharp lines complementing the sequential dynamic light patterns as seen on the teasers released before. The E 6 looks like a crossover, although it sits relatively low to the ground. The swoopy C-pilar gives the EV a coupe like silhouette. The rear end is probably the most interesting part of the EV6, with the LED light cluster that extends from left to right rear fenders.
Although it looks like a design that is quite simple and has lost its individuality for the design that draws out a new direction for Kia, it is very sharp unlike before and the LED daytime running light is Uses C-type. The front grill is not provided and the bumper shape peculiar to the pure EV model is impressive.
The cabin of the Kia EV6 has been revealed as well, to which the automaker boasts, an innovative use of space, made possible by the new Electric Global Modular Platform that made its global debut in the Hyundai Ioniq 5. The most notable interior element would be the curved screen atop the dashboard, that spans from the drivers instrument up to the center. The steering wheel is two spoke, which now bears the revamped Kia logo. HVAC controls positioned below the huge screen are said to be using haptic buttons.
The Kia EV6 will have its full official debut this month, which should give us more information about the new EV powertrain, including range and charging times. Availability is yet to be announced as well.
