And now with the launch of this 240-kWh DC fast charger for EV passenger vehicles in Kochi adds to the experience. Kia mentioned that they are in the process of setting up more charging stations across their EV dealerships in the country. Hence Kia customers can expect a superior customer experience with reduced charging time and range anxiety.

This vehicle uses the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform and showcases Kia’s Opposites United design philosophy. Kia EV6 comes with a certified range of 528 km on a full charge. With charging time from 10 to 80 per cent in as little as 18 minutes using a 350-kW charger, EV6 looks quite promising.
