2022 Kia EV6 vs. Its Competition

2022 Kia EV6
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The EV6 spearheads not only Kia’s electric vehicle program, it also takes over the performance halo from the Kia Stinger mid-size fastback and its internal combustion engine.

Built on the same platform as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and a planned Genesis electric crossover, the EV6 is longer than the Ioniq but the wheelbase is shorter.

The Mustang Mach-E claims similar performance specs in its forthcoming GT model, but the Tesla Model Y currently matches the range and performance of the EV6 and may surpass it before roll out.

More utilitarian and affordable but less exciting, the Volkswagen ID.4 is the people’s EV.
