October 25th, 2023 by

The EV6 GT has received an honor alongside a swath of impressive products and ideas that debuted in 2023. Time’s Best Inventions of 2023 highlighted Kia’s EV6 GT within the transportation category, a spot it shares with only one other consumer vehicle.

The list features 200 innovations the TIME editors have identified as “changing our lives.” Other categories include Accessibility, AI, Green Energy, Medical Care, Robotics, and Sustainability. TIME’s list highlights some of the most groundbreaking, influential, and potentially life-saving inventions.

“The EV6 GT defied expectations by combining Kia’s ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy and focus on sustainable mobility with supercar power and performance,” said Steven Center, COO & EVP, Kia America. “Building on the momentum from Kia America being the only automotive company in the U.S. named to the 2023 TIME100 List of Most Influential Companies, we are honored by this latest recognition for the most powerful Kia production vehicle ever.”

The list itself is created by TIME editors and correspondents nominating contenders, as well as an application process. Editors evaluate contenders on factors such as originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.

“The result is a list of 200 groundbreaking inventions (and 50 special mention inventions)—including the world’s most powerful supercomputer, a game-changing entertainment venue, and a new shape—that are changing how we live, work, play, and think about what’s possible,” said the TIME editors.
