The Kia EV6 has been around for a couple of years, and we’ve already taken the EV6 through the Quick Spin wringer a year ago. Well, if the base-power EV6 doesn’t cut the mustard, Kia has a battery-electric hot rod in its stable.
Dubbed the EV6 GT, this high-output variant does share most of the sheetmetal with its more pedestrian sibling but does have different front and rear fascias.
More importantly, the EV6 GT sends 576 hp to the wheels with a pair of electric motors. This dual-motor GT comes standard with all-wheel drive because of the front- and rear-mounted electric motors.
The EV6 GT shares the battery with its less powerful counterpart, which does affect your real-world range, and offers the least amount of range in the lineup. Though, the brutal acceleration might make up for the lack of range.
On this episode of Quick Spin, Autoweek’s executive editor Tom Murphy hops behind the wheel of this Kia and puts it through its paces. Murphy takes you on a tour of the EV6 GT and highlights some of his favorite features before taking you along on a live drive review.
He also chats with host Wesley Wren about the 2023 Kia EV6 GT, its performance, and its space in the market. Closing the show, the pair breakdown what makes the EV6 GT special.
