Dual-Motor AWD
The EV6 Wind e-AWD and GT-Line e-AWD add a 70 kW motor at the front axle combined with a 165 kW motor at the rear and the 77.4 kWh battery for a total output of 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft of torque. Estimated range with e-AWD is 274 miles, due in part to a unique front-motor disconnect device that Kia estimates increases range by 6 percent. A top-of-the-line EV6 GT is expected to arrive later, powered by the 77.4 kWh battery with a 160 kW front motor and a 270 kW rear motor for a total output of 576 horsepower. When equipped with e-AWD, the EV6 also adds a heat pump to reduce the drain on range that can occur in cold climates.
