Naturally, this quickly attracted the attention of automotive virtual artists. At least one of them doubled down at the ceremony with his take on the EV6 matters. The pixel master better known as X-Tomi Design on social media seems ready to digitally kick off yet another series. One seemingly featuring crimson, sporty virtual transformations.
So, after previously taking a liking of Alfa Romeo’s 2023 Tonale and morphing it as an entire digital family (complete with pickup Ute, Spider, Coupe, and Quadrifoglio GTA), there is something red brewing up. Not just the previous revival of Opel’s Calibra based on the all-new Astra L. But also, a neat three-door transformation of Kia’s EV6 GT from a battery-electric compact crossover SUV into a traditional hot hatchback.
The CGI transformation is pretty straightforward. Instead of a five-door SUV, now we have a single POV (unfortunately) with a three-door hatchback. One that is both sustainable and feisty. This is because Kia made sure not only to provide a maximum EPA range of up to 310 miles (499 km) but also make it worthy of a virtual hot hatch configuration.
Complete with up to 577 horsepower (430 kW/585 ps) for the flagship EV6 GT version and a zero to 60 mph (96 kph) time of just 3.5 seconds. And a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive configuration, of course.
