Fast Charging
The 2023 Kia EV6 GT features a 400V to 800V multicharging architecture for ultrafast DC charging with speeds from 50 to 350 kWh. With fast charging from a 350 kWh charger, it takes just 5 minutes to add about 70 miles of range, and in 18 minutes the EV6 can get from 10 to 80 percent charge. The 11 kW onboard charger for Level 2 charging will recharge from 10 to 100 percent in around 7 hours — an easy overnight task. We didn’t have access to either DC or Level 2; however, plugging into a household 120V outlet still delivered power at 1.3 kW. At that rate, it would take about 29 hours to get from 66 percent to a full battery – not exactly ideal, which is why a typical owner would need to have a Level 2 home charger.
