Kia EV6 electric car is the company’s first-ever take on the all-electric segment. The EV6 has managed to grab eyeballs in different parts of the globe and it is finally coming to India. However, don’t expect it to take over Indian roads anytime soon. The company will only be offering a very limited number of cars in the first round of booking. This might be Kia testing the Indian waters with its premium EV offering. Sources have told BGR.in that the company might initially introduce only 100 units in the Indian market.

Kia EV6 India Pricing
The Kia EV6 will be imported to India as a completely built unit (CBUs). Considering that the car is not built in India, it will be attracting a lot of custom duty on its original price tag, that is the reason the car is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 40 lakh to Rs 60 lakh.
Kia EV6 specifications
The Kia EV6 gets a WLTP range of up to 528 km, according to the global website. The range of the variant launched in India may vary depending on the price.
