Kia’s new 576 HP EV6 GT will beat a Ferrari and a Lamborghini in a race

In the wake of a new era for the Korean automaker, Kia releases its fastest production car ever: the 576 hp EV6 GT. The new GT EV6 will be available in showrooms from the end of this year.

Kia is following in its parent company, Hyundai, with its latest electric release. But this isn’t just any new Kia electric car. This EV is a monster.

With 576 hp, the Kia EV6 GT can go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km/h. According to an independent test by AMCI, the EV6 GT beat a Ferrari Roma and Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder in acceleration.

To handle this kind of performance, the new EV supercar comes with a twin-engine e-AWD powertrain that powers all four wheels.

The 77.4 kWh battery pack powers a 160 kW motor at the front and 270 kW at the rear for a combined 576 horsepower and 546 pounds of torque. In comparison, a Ferrari Roma has about 561 pounds of torque.

Kia’s new electric car also features 15” front disc brakes and 14.2” four-piston front calipers, a reinforced chassis and electrically controlled suspension for optimum performance.

The EV6 GT sits on 21-inch wheels, while the exterior features neon accents. On the inside, Kia goes for the sporty feel with racing-style bucket seats and a neon green dashboard.

Kia’s EV6 GT takes electric performance to the next level

Kia went all out with the EV6 GT. In addition to the standard options (eco, normal, sport and snow), the Korean carmaker has several driving modes, including GT driving mode, my driving mode and drift mode.

The GT driving mode improves the car’s performance by optimally tuning the engines, brakes, steering, suspension and traction.

Steven Center, COO and EVP of Kia America, praised the automaker’s new chapter, saying:

The EV6 GT ushers in the next chapter of the Plan S electrification story for Kia, delivering the thrilling performance and effortless driveability of the EV6 beyond expectations.

He added:

Moving towards our zero exhaust emissions targets has never been so exciting.

Perhaps most importantly, Kia’s new EV model includes 800V DC fast-charging capabilities, which can charge the battery from 10 to 80% in less than 18 minutes.

The Kia EV6 GT will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter, when it goes on sale nationwide. Prices will be announced earlier at launch. Kia said all EV6 GT buyers will receive 1,000 kWh of charge credit at Electrify America Stations.
