With the unveiling of the Kia EV6 family and the details revealed, Kia has put a race between the premium EV6 GT version and some of the fastest and most expensive sports cars.
The list consists of:
- Lamborghini Urus
- Mercedes AMG GT
- Mclaren 570S
- Porsche 911 Targa 4
- Ferrari California T.
With its twin-engine all-wheel drive with an output of up to 430 kW and a torque of 740 Nm, the Kia EV6 GT is one step ahead immediately and led the pack for most of the 400m drag race.
The Mclaren 570S won the race by a length, but it doesn’t matter that much (sports cars aren’t the EV6’s direct competitor). The most important thing is that a mainstream electric car has really strong performance, including an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds.
In addition, even the cheaper versions – Long Range, AWD – accelerate very well from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.2 seconds. The AWD version of the Standard Range reaches 100 km / h in 6.2 seconds.
Traditional counterparts have usually not even been close to such results, and thanks to electric vehicles, acceleration in 5 to 6 seconds will be more mainstream. Not bad for a versatile car that also offers great range, a spacious cabin, and lots of trunk space. It’s really hard not to fall in love with electric vehicles these days.
