About the Kia EV6 Lease

Kia EV6 Battery & Powertrain
This electric car has a generous 77kWh battery (71.2kWh usable capacity) and it is a super-efficient battery that punches above its kWh in terms of range, enabling the EV6 to achieve an outstanding 314 miles range WLTP, we recommend the car will realistically offer a ‘real-world’ range figure of around 255 miles per full charge. However, the vehicles range depends on factors such as your personal driving style and weather conditions, meaning in summer, this should increase even further but might dip slightly in the colder months. There are also multiple drive modes to select from which helps you tailor your driving style, which can also help lengthen the range of the vehicle or improve the performance of the car.

Charging the Kia EV6
Like all EVs, the Kia EV6 is simple to charge. You can plug in at home to a 7kWh wall box charger and fully recharge your vehicle in around 12 hours. The EV6 also features ultra-fast charging capabilities and can charge at speeds of up to 250kW with compatible public chargers, this kind of charger can be found at service stations and electric vehicle charging hubs. When you’re plugged into one of these fast chargers, the EV6 can gain 80% charge in just 18 minutes (equivalent to more than 250 miles).
The car’s charging system is more intelligent than previous generation BEVs, thanks to an Integrated Charging Control Unit (ICCU). This enables a new vehicle-to-load (V2L) function, which is capable of discharging energy from the vehicle battery. The V2L function can supply up to 3.6kW of power and as an example, it’s capable of operating a 55-inch television and air conditioner simultaneously for more than 1 day. The system is also able to charge another EV if needed.
