There's no doubt that many automakers are going all-in with electric technology. It seems like almost every other week there is an announcement of a new electric vehicle. The Kia brand is always at the forefront of automotive trends and the electric revolution is no exception. Recently, Kia announced a new vehicle that seems like it is going to change the game. The all-new 2022 Kia EV6 was unveiled to the world. Schaumburg Kia, located at 1100 E Golf Road in Schaumburg, IL, is here to let all Chicagoland area drivers know what they can expect from this exciting new electric car.

What is the Kia EV6?

The all-new 2022 Kia EV6 is an all-electric crossover SUV developed by the Kia brand. It is a five-passenger vehicle and will get up to 300-miles of range, depending on the trim level you select. Drivers can expect that the Kia EV6 will be a beast on the roads. Its electric powertrain can generate up to 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque. A few months may drop open when hearing that this Kia electric SUV can go from zero to 60 in 5.2-seconds. That kind of speed puts the Kia EV6 ahead of many performance-oriented luxury SUVs.

Rear-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive will be available for Illinois drivers who prefer that configuration. The all-wheel-drive models will also have dual electric motors to help drivers get the most horsepower out of their Kia EV6. The five-link rear suspension is also expected to give folks who buy or lease one of these vehicles a sporty driving experience.

Why is Now the Time to Buy an Electric Car?

The improvement in driving ranges and charging capabilities make this an ideal time to jump into the market for an electric vehicle (EV). The Kia EV6 can charge up to 201 miles of range in 18 minutes when it uses an 800v DC fast charger. There are now over 41,400 charging stations in America. That number continues to climb. Not only can you charge the all-new Kia EV6 from one of these charging stations, you can also use an at-home charger as well.

When you combine all of the advancement in charging and range with the cutting-edge features you can get in a Kia EV6, like the augmented reality Head-Up Display, it is a no-brainer as to why you should put an electric car on your list of vehicles to consider.
