The Kia EV6 has just entered its third year in North America, and the Korean automaker has prepped two new additions to the range, thus expanding the offering to better rival the likes of the Tesla Model Y.
Sitting just above the entry-level EV6 Light RWD, the new Light Long Range RWD (rear-wheel drive) model is priced from $45,950, excluding the $1,325 destination fee. This represents a $3,350 bump over the base version of the car, which uses a 58 kWh battery pack that feeds a 167 horsepower (169 ps/125 kW) motor. The new EV6 Light Long Range RWD brings a 77 kWh battery and boasts 225 hp (228 ps/168 kW).

Also joining the Kia EV6 family for the 2024 model year is the Light e-AWD. As you can assume, this trim level sits above the EV6 Light Long Range RWD, bringing an electric all-wheel drive system to the party. This model uses the same battery pack as the Light Long Range RWD, which is also found on the top-of-the-line GT, has two electric motors with a combined output of 320 hp (325 ps/434 kW), and starts at $49,850, $3,900 more than its RWD sibling.

The family continues with the RWD and AWD versions of the Wind and the GT-Line, also offered with rear- and all-wheel drive. The first two start at $48,700 and $52,600, respectively, and for the latter two, you are looking at $52,900 and $57,600, respectively, excluding destination. The rear-wheel-drive models feature the same 225 horsepower motor fed by the 77.4 kWh battery pack, and the all-wheel drive proposals have 320 horsepower combined and use the same battery.

With the battery fully charged, the most frugal variants of the 2024 Kia EV6 are the Light Long Range RWD, Wind RWD, and GT-Line RWD. These have an EPA-estimated driving range of 310 miles (499 km). Next in line are the Light AWD and Wind AWD, with 282 miles (454 km). The GT-Line AWD follows with 252 miles (406 km), and the most affordable version of the electric crossover has 232-mile (373 km) autonomy. Last but not least, the EV6 GT promises 218 miles (351 km) under the EPA's standards.

Offered strictly with all-wheel drive and topping the lineup in terms of performance and pricing, the 2024 Kia EV6 GT uses a dual-motor setup and starts at $61,600. It boasts a combined 576 hp (584 ps/430 kW), has 545 lb-ft (739 Nm) of torque on tap, and needs a little over three seconds to hit 60 mph (97 kph). The EV6 GT features sportier styling inside and out, 21-inch alloys wrapped in sticky tires, a pair of 12.3-inch screens, an augmented reality head-up display, heated front sports seats, and a plethora of safety gear.
