Now for a car electric car that's pretty new on the market! With the EV6 Electric, Kia brought a crossover electric car to the European and UK car market and it's been a huge success. The car is built on the same platform that we already know from the Hyundai Ioniq 5. Given that Kia is owned by the the parent company Hyundai this probably isn't such a big surprise. The platform therefore isn't the only thing that appears similar to the Ioniq 5. The EV5 also has the same electric drives in the engine compartment.
Due to the Kia EV6's relationship to the Hyundai Ioniq 5, none of the cars can be described as unique. Still, there's at least one component that makes the EV6 stand out: its looks. The car comes in an extremely futuristic design.
KIA and Hyundai models not only look similar, they are actually related. Both car companies come from Korea and rely on futuristic models. Of course, electric cars should not be missing. After the well-known Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia is introducing the EV6 to the electric car market. This model is particularly powerful. While some competitors are already limited to 160 km/h, customers can already drive up to 185 km/h with the production version of the Kia EV6.
In addition to the Hyundai Ioniq 5, its country cousin, the Kia EV6 2DW, can also pull loads of up to 1.6 tons in the more powerful version with a battery capacity of 77.4 kWh . This means you can also connect slightly heavier caravans to the Stromer. The weaker version with the 58 kWh battery only manages a maximum trailer load of 750 kilograms - this means that caravans are not possible for the small EV6. If you are looking for the towing capacity for a Kia EV6 then we're here to help. The electric car towing capacity is a term used to describe the maximum weight of a trailer a Kia EV6 can tow. There may be certain models of Kia EV6 electric that cannot be used to tow a trailer. These will be highlighted with 'N KG' in the below list of Kia EV6 towing weights.
For those models of Kia EV6 where towing is allowed, we have detailed the Kia EV6 towing capacity for a braked trailer (this is when the trailer being towed has its own breaking system). To ensure you are both safe and legal it is really important that you check the Kia EV6 towing weight limit for the car.
As well as providing the braked towing capacity for your Kia EV6, where data is available we also have also listed the Kia EV6's unbraked towing capacity.
Here is a full list of the Unbraked and Braked Towing Capacity for the Kia EV6. If you cannot find the Kia EV6 you are looking for please drop us a email and we will add this to the list.

The interior and exterior design of the EV6 was unveiled on March 15, 2021. It was created under chief designer Karim Habib in collaboration with the three Kia design studios in Namyang (Korea), Frankfurt and Irvine (California, USA). The world premiere followed on March 30, 2021. The series has been marketed in Europe since October 2021. As the first Korean car, the EV6 won the European Car of the Year award in 2022.
The appearance of the Kia EV6 battery hatchback is decided in the new style of 'Opposites United', playing on the contrast of nature and mankind's creations. The marriage of the emotional and the rational is achieved with the help of simple lines and clear forms, creating a bold and memorable image.
The EV6 is offered with the three exterior variants EV6, GT-Line and GT. Eleven exterior colors can be ordered in combination with six interior variants.
Recycled plastics are used for the seat covers. The dashboard has two 12″ screens, with the infotainment screen being curved. There is also a head-up display with augmented reality (AR)
At the front, the characteristic "tiger nose" has been replaced by a "digital tiger face" formed by a dynamic light pattern of the navigation lights. The car's width is emphasized by the long air intake cut-out at the bottom of the bumper.
