KIA surprise? We present you a sketch of the KIA EV6 X-Line Special Edition. a more off-road special edition that the Koreans keep secret from their new electric crossover. With a tougher, more off-road look, the EV6 offers zero emission driving on the toughest terrain.
A new world is opening up in the market, electric cars are beginning to invade and it is expected to be a true reality and a high percentage of the European mobile fleet in the coming years. But this wave of electric cars will be equivalent to the current combustion, in terms of bodywork. Although SUVs predominate, compacts, utility vehicles and saloons are making their mark, so in a few years there will be no big difference other than in the form of propulsion.
Koreans really like to innovate, enter segments and open slightly unknown market niches, especially KIA. The second firm of the South Korean giant is capable of presenting a sportier or more crossover special edition depending on the model in front of it, and an example of this is the KIA EV6 X-Line Special Edition. For now it does not have the green light for production, but it would not be strange if it did, because the new KIA EV6 is also a model that lends itself to a transformation like the one in this sketch.
KIA EV6 X-Line Special Edition, a sportier and wilder CUV
With more off-road wheels, a higher ride height, more pronounced plastic protectors on the wheel arches or even a modified front bumper with a towing winch revealing a very clean front end, the EV6 X-Line Special Edition is a very serious and unique bet for lovers of true ecology, as it can travel on more complicated terrain, even at night thanks to LED light bars positioned on the leading edge of the roof. What is strictly necessary for a field trip but with the bonus of zero emissions.
Best of all, it’s not an option that costs too much money to develop for KIA. The exterior is not one of the big problems, although it is the dynamic one where you have to invest more time in a special set-up to avoid obstacles or reinforce the tightness of the battery if one of the pretensions is to ford small rivers. The height of the bodywork to the ground is one of the keys to this sportier EV6, since needs to seriously increase the 160 millimeters that currently has ground clearancewhich prevents him from leaving the asphalt more often.
Where this KIA EV6 X-Line Special Edition has no problem is in terms of power. Unless KIA surprises us with a more basic version of the range with all-wheel drive, for now it is limited to the most powerful version at the top of the range, that of the EV6GT AWD. Their 585 hp of maximum power and 740 Nm of torque maximum motor make it ideal for that off-road version, although it is clear that the additional efforts come from battery power, so its 406 kilometers of autonomy They don’t give much. But, in essence, of course we would like to have this electric crossover in the range.
