  • Kia has shared no details about the range and powertrain of the EV6
  • The car looks sleek and modern

Kia has revealed the first official images of the EV6 - its first dedicated battery electric vehicle. Now, we have to tell you here that it's not the company's first EV, because if you remember, it already has the e-Niro and the Soul EV in its al-electric portfolio. The EV6, however, is built on a platform which has been developed specifically for electric vehicles. The new platform Electric-Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP, will see Kia build next generation electric cars under a new design philosophy that embodies Kia's shifting focus towards electrification.

The teaser images give us an idea of what to expect in terms of design. It is sleek and the coupe like roofline integrates well into the rear spoiler. The silhouette also points out at a slight ducktail too. The front end is sleek and modern and it looks like the EV6 has a short overhang. The headlights are slim and the LED pattern gives it a unique look.
