Kia has showcased the exterior and interior of its EV6, the South Korean manufacturer’s first model designed based on the E-GMP platform for electric cars. The dashboard and infotainment system consists of a wide curved screen.
It is not yet known exactly how large the screen is and what resolution it has. Kia only shows images and speaks in a press release about a high-definition display. The renders show that the screen starts behind the wheel and extends to the center console. The area behind the wheel shows details about speed and range, while the right side is used for the infotainment system and navigation.
According to Kia, the car will have a minimal number of physical buttons. Above the center console, below the display, are haptic ‘buttons’ that allow passengers to control heating, ventilation and air conditioning settings.
Kia has not yet given technical specifications of the EV6. That will happen later this month at the official unveiling. The car is the manufacturer’s first all-electric model based on the Electric-Global Modular Platform. It was developed by Hyundai and was presented at the end of last year.
All electric cars from Kia and Huyndai will be built on this E-GMP platform from this year. The platform is suitable for cars with a range of more than 500km and supports an 800V battery system, which can also switch to 400V for charging. Last month Huyndai introduced his Ioniq 5. Because it is based on the same platform, that car probably gives an idea of what can be expected from the specifications of the Kia EV6.
