The Kia EV6 Is So Good It’s Even Winning Awards That Aren’t for Cars

Since its release, the 2022 Kia EV6 has been the recipient of multiple awards. And that is because it is a competent all-electric vehicle with unique styling. Recently, Kia won two Red Dot Design awards for its cultural space in Seongsu, Seoul. The space allows visitors to experience the 2022 Kia EV6 in new ways. These range from test drives of this EV crossover to excerpt advice regarding the future of the automotive industry. Dubbed “EV6 Unplugged Ground,” the purpose of the display is to show a sustainable future and how Kia intends to help with that. 

The 2022 Kia EV6 earns more awards

Shortly after winning the 2022 European Car of the Year, the new EV6 was not done yet. With its daring design and innovation, according to Kia Media, the vehicle was awarded two Red Dot accolades. These include the “Best of the Best” and “Innovative Products” top contenders. 

These awards are a direct reflection of the quality of EV crossover that the Kia EV6 is. Although it has a starting MSRP of $40,900, this model does have a range of premium features and the benefits of an EV. Still, some may be skeptical about spending that much on a new Kia model.

The Red Dot Design Award is one of the largest design awards in the world. It has a history dating back to the mid 20th century, which makes Kia’s victory fairly impressive. The entries are judged by a 50-member international panel. It consists of designers, design professors, and trade journalists.

The “Best of the Best” accolade is awarded to products that pioneer the industry, which is something that the 2022 Kia EV6 certainly hopes to do. This EV crossover also earned the top position in the “Innovative Products” category.

With the “EV6 Unplugged Ground” event, Kia also earned some awards. Seongsu has emerged as a popular hub of fashion and innovation in recent years. And some have dubbed it the “Brooklyn of Korea.” So, Kia’s plan to host the event in this location makes complete sense.

The 2022 Kia EV6 is an EV that is ready to impress. With up to 310 miles in estimated range and the ability to generate up to 320 horsepower, the EV6 is both practical and has a relatively engaging drive. But, don’t expect it to be as sporty as other EVs like the Mustang Mach-E.

Additionally, this model has a usable interior. With up to 50.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, the EV6 has room for things like gear and groceries. But, its front trunk is not all that large. Kia also claims the 2022 EV6 can fit up to five adults comfortably. Which adds a level of versatility. 

The new Kia EV6 also boasts modern technology like a head-up display and dual panoramic display. Also notable is a commitment to safety with a variety of driver-assist features. And then, of course, the EV6 has just won awards for its styling and design. This shows Kia’s willingness to push the boundaries.
