Kia India is all set to introduce its first electric vehicle in the country and has opened order books for the new EV6 electric crossover. Customers can book the all-electric offering for a token amount of 3 lakh and it will be sold exclusively through 15 select dealerships across 12 cities in India. Customers can also book the EV6 online on the company's website. The new EV6 is based on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), which will form the basis of the brand's future range of electric offerings. We exclusively drove it to bring you all the details, even before the company announced plans to bring it to India. The new electric offering will go on sale on June 2, 2022.
Speaking about commencing bookings in the country, Tae-Jin Park, MD and CEO, Kia India, said, "The Indian automotive industry is transforming, and Kia is at the forefront of this transformation." Time and again, we have proven it through our world-class products and services that cater to not just the unmet but also the unfelt needs of Indians. The introduction of EV6 in the country reiterates the same. The EV6 is a wonderful combination of bold design, progressive engineering, innovative technologies, and exciting electric performance. We are confident that our customers will appreciate the finest Kia offering that we are bringing to the market. "
