As an SUV, it is important that the Kia EV6 actually offers usable cargo space. Many folks flock to these kinds of vehicles in order to get more space for both passengers and gear. And because the EV6 is actually an electric SUV, it also offers the benefit of not having to fill up at the pump. 

How big is the trunk on the Kia EV6?

In terms of cargo space behind the second row, the Kia EV6 has 24.4 cubic feet of cargo room. In total cargo capacity, the 2023 EV6 has 50.2 cubic feet of cargo space. With that kind of room, this electric SUV should have enough space for daily usability. 

According to AutoBlog, even though the Mustang Mach-E might have more space on paper, the EV6 handles cargo better. And that is due to a clever design by Kia. Even if the brand decided not to give its EV SUV a full-blown frunk. 

Is the Kia EV6 bigger than the Kia Niro?

The Kia Niro does offer slightly more cargo capacity with 54.5 cubic feet. It is also more affordable than the EV6. That said, the Kia EV6 has a sportier design and offers more performance. And as an EV, that helps to make it more interesting. The Niro looks fairly conservative. That might be the right move for some shoppers, but something is exciting about a vehicle that does not look cookie-cutter.

Better yet, the EV6 does have a lesser base electric range than the Kia Niro. It does offer a maxim range of 310 miles. This is complemented by the fact that the 2023 EV6 can make up to 576 horsepower and 546 pound-foot of torque. Which is seriously impressive for a Kia SUV. 

How expensive is Kia’s EV?

The 2023 Kia EV6 has a starting price of $48,500. This does make Kia’s EV more expensive than a standard SUV, but it comes with electrification and a number of standard features. It can also seat up to five passengers, which adds to its overall practicality.

Can you buy a Kia EV6?

If you are interested in getting behind the wheel of an electric SUV like the EV6, you might have to wait. Supply constraints are hitting the automotive industry heavily, especially when it comes to EVs. Hopefully, in the future, some of these issues can be sorted out. Because it does seem like the 2023 Kia EV6 is a legitimately usable vehicle. 

For 2023, Kia is even offering a performance version known as the GT. The EV6 GT brings over 550 hp, a number of performance features, and an improved design. But it also costs over $60k. This electric SUV will not be for everyone, but it does show that the platform that the EV6 and Ioniq 5 are built on are able to handle some serious numbers.
