Have you considered buying a new electric crossover? One of the most impressive new models is the practical, stylish, and impressive Kia EV6 GT. However, the automaker just gave another reason to buy one, as if there weren’t enough already. In addition to the many benefits of owning a Kia EV6 GT, buyers will now receive 1,000 kWh of free charging. As Tesla owners might already know, charging on the go can get expensive. That’s why free charging is a great reason to own the new Kia electric crossover.
Kia EV6 GT comes with free charging
According to Kelley Blue Book, the Kia EV6 GT comes with 1,000 kWh of free charging at Electrify America stations during the first three years of ownership. With variances depending on the owner’s driving style, that calculates to about 3,500-4,000 miles of free driving. Imagine eliminating the need for fuel costs for that amount of time. It sounds too good to be true, which is why it’s another reason to buy a Kia EV6 GT.
KBB says most electric vehicle owners do most of their charging at home. Why wouldn’t they? Charging stations are only available after a fee, and home charging costs as much as it increases your electric bill. However, long trips, especially cross-country road trips, require public charging stations. Kia’s agreement with Electrify America is perfect for the new EV buyer that travels often. Additionally, if you choose to lease an EV6 GT, many owners might manage never paying for public charging (assuming most charging is done at home) during the three-year period.
Other reasons to buy the Kia EV6 GT
Sure, free charging for an electric vehicle is excellent, but what other reasons are there to buy a Kia EV6 GT crossover? According to KBB, the EV6 “straddles the line between SUV and wagon and does it with a mean face and aggressively bulging shoulders. Inside, clean, minimalist lines predominate.” Experts like KBB aren’t the only ones thinking the same thing. The EV6 is truly one of the most exciting new electric vehicles to hit the market.
However, it’s also excellent that the EV6 comes with various configurations. For example, it has rear- or all-wheel drive and different power levels. At its best, it maxes out its driving range at 310 miles, which is impressive for an EV. Choosing the GT model gets buyers a maxed-out, performance Kia EV6. It has 576 horsepower, taking it from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. Unfortunately, the starting price is $61,400, and KBB thinks its rarity will increase that number.
According to Edmunds, the second-most expensive GT trim has many standard features too. These include a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, evasive steering assist, improved forward collision mitigation and adaptive cruise control systems, and the Technology package. The package adds an automated parking system, a surround-view camera system, a blind-spot camera, and automatic rear braking.
Why would you buy a Kia EV6 GT?
In conclusion, there are several reasons to buy a Kia EV6 GT. First, it has plenty of standard features and is configurable with all-wheel drive and other niceties. Next, the GT is the performance model, offering the most horsepower and plenty of driving range with its electric battery. Finally, the newly announced partnership with Electrify America offers owners 1,000 kWh of free charging at public stations. Buyers who are worried about paying for charging away from home can eliminate those thoughts, as it’ll be paid for up to three years, 3,500-4,000 miles.
