The all-new Kia EV6 electric crossover will be available with IONITY and integrated payment platform in Europe, the car manufacturer has said.
As IONITY joint venture member, Kia will offer customers reduced charging prices at the only pan-European network currently offering ultra-fast 350kW chargers.
One of the features of the Kia EV6 is its 800V battery pack, which offers high power charging capabilities with IONITY charge points taking just 18 minutes to charge from 10% to 80% and less than 4.5 minutes for 100km.
Kia’s partnership with part-owned IONITY gives customers access to over 400 high power charging stations across 24 European countries and boasts a charging point at every 120km of the international highway network.
Jason Jeong, President at Kia Europe said of the news: “Our partnership with IONITY is an essential part of our plans to make EVs a more viable option and introduce 11 of them to the market by 2027. A reliable infrastructure that supports our vehicles’ high voltage capabilities is vital in encouraging more people to make the switch to electric mobility.
“The combination of Kia’s long-range state-of-the-art EV6 and access to the comprehensive IONITY network reimagines the EV user experience by providing a seamless journey through easy access to a vast charging network, a simple payment process, lower electricity prices and most importantly, ultra-fast high-tech charging.”
