Kia’s most powerful production vehicle ever has arrived in Canada.
The 2023 Kia EV6 GT, first unveiled in August in Pebble Beach, will offer 576 hp and 546 pound-feet of torque.
The powertrain capabilities pit the vehicle against such exotic track stars as the Ferrari Roma and Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder.
The EV6 GT will start at $76,495.
Kia claims a zero-to-100 km/h time in the mid-three-second range, and a top speed of 259 km/h.
It illustrates the rapid expansion of EV offerings in multiple directions.
The GT marks the "next chapter" of the brand's electrification road map, Kia America COO Steven Center said in a statement. Its arrival is part of Kia's Plan S global strategy to launch at least two EVs a year and build a full lineup of 14 EVs by 2027.
