Kia Debuts New Limited Edition EV6 Model

August 23rd, 2023 by

Kia America recently debuted the 2023 EV6 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Limited Edition1 during Monterey Car Week.

This commemorative EV6, which was shown at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, will only have 1,000 examples set for production. The model celebrates the 2023 EV6 winning the “Utility Vehicle of the Year” category in the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year™ (NACTOY) competition.

Celebrating Excellence in Design

The all-electric EV6 was recognized for excellence in categories including automotive innovation, design, and value by the NACTOY jury of 50 automotive media experts.

“With the EV6 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year Limited Edition, we have created a rolling testament to the EV6’s tremendous achievement in this year’s NACTOY competition,” said Steven Center, COO and Executive Vice President, of Kia America.

The Limited Edition EV6 model introduces the exclusive Deep Forest Green colorway, over Desert Beige, which pays homage to classic performance vehicle styling combinations. On the interior, the gear selector is adorned with a centerpiece featuring authentic NACTOY medallions and the teaser silhouette of the EV6.

Bringing Together Elegance and Power

This unique build of the EV6 incorporates elements of both the wind and GT-Line trims. The EV6 Wind’s blacked-out exterior elements are put to stunning use here, alongside feature content borrowed from the GT-Line. Some of the key features coming over from the GT-Line include 20-inch alloy wheels, Augmented Reality Head-Up Display, Surround View Monitor, Blind-Spot View Monitor, and a heated, flat-bottom steering wheel.

It features a 77.4kWh battery with ultra-fast DC charging compatibility and available onboard power generator. The model also utilizes a 74kW front motor and a 165kW rear motor.

“We are honored that Kia has chosen to make this special edition vehicle,” said Jeff Gilbert, President of North American Car Truck and Utility of the Year, and Auto Reporter for WWJ Radio in Detroit.  “Our jurors were impressed by the styling of the EV6.  They saw the vehicle as evidence that Kia is becoming a force in the EV movement.  It’s a vehicle that jurors found superior to other electric vehicles in many ways, including driving dynamics, price and ability to charge quickly.”
