2023 Kia EV6 GT
The Kia EV6 is already an all-electric force to be reckoned with, but why stop there… or at all? Instead, let’s go full-send with the 2023 EV6 GT.
The GT isn’t to be confused with the EV6 GT-Line and one purposeful jab of the pedal instantly eliminates the conflation, as the GT kicks things up to a staggering 576 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque. That means a 0-60 time of just 3.4-seconds and, more impressively, pulling power doesn’t fizzle out as the quarter mile ends.
Along with the 200+ horsepower difference, it sits a little lower and rides a little tighter. The GT gets larger brakes, 21-inch wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F-1 tires, and an electronic limited slip rear differential. The interior gets sporty bucket seats with lime green accents; a little aggressive for daily use, but perfect for the road course. Same can be said for the GT-exclusive drive mode…
…let’s go in to GT MODE. There it is! Noticeable power difference there going into GT Mode.
…ooooh yeah. The tail is definitely happy. A lot of the power goes to those rear wheels. It is all-wheel drive but more power can be sent to the rears.
Haha-- it’s very easy to control with that back end coming out. The brakes do seem to, uh, have less bite when you're trying to come down from higher speed. I mean this is not a light vehicle.
Of course, all that muscle comes at a cost; range is down to 206 miles; but a 350-kilowatt fast charger can recoup from 10-80 percent in about 18 minutes, getting you back on track A-S-A-P.
Limited to about 2,500 units, the 2023 Kia EV6 GT does an impressive job putting consumer electrification on the track. Expect these to start just under $63,000.
