2025 Kia EV6 Facelift Launched

2025 Kia EV6 Gets A Bigger Battery And More Range

The wildly successful Kia EV6 has been updated for the model year 2025 with aesthetic, as well as performance enhancements.

The 2025 Kia EV6 has been updated in the domestic market with a bigger battery pack and improved range. As is the case with every mid-life facelift, there are visual enhancements to set it slightly apart from the current model. Additionally, there are some new features on offer to make the already compelling EV even more enticing. Note that the current update is applicable to the Korean and Australian models. But the EV6 will get refreshed in other parts of the world, most likely, by the end of this year.

2025 Kia EV6 Gets Bigger Battery and More Range

The 2025 Kia EV6 now gets an 84 kWh battery pack, replacing the familiar 77.4 kWh unit found in other EVs under the Hyundai Motor Group umbrella. While the EPA or WLTP range figures elude us at the moment, the 2025 Kia EV6 now offers a range of 494 km (307 mi.) up from 475 km (295 mi.) on the Korean test cycle. For the record, the Korean test cycle is more stringent than the WLTP cycle.

Charging this new battery will continue to cost 18 minutes for 10% to 80% using a 350 kW DC ultra-fast charger. Furthermore, the EV6’s frequency-selective dampers now offer better ride comfort after improvement. The motors are now quieter and the body is stronger for more safety. I don’t expect any changes to the specifications. The RWD version will continue to offer 225 hp (168 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft), while the AWD variant will offer 320 hp (239 kW) and 605 Nm (446 lb-ft) of maximum power and torque, respectively.
