The EV6 GT looks slotted to replace the Stinger. 3.5 second 0-60 with 577 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque


Not a fan of the looks, but it wouldn't prevent me if the price was 'right' (like the current Stinger's price/performance).

That would look so much better as a sedan. They fell asleep when they got to the rear end.

But, it's butt ugly, a common SUV type hatchback (that is a hatch, isn't it?).

I think it is. I also think the reason the car is 'taller' (more SUV than sportback) is the placement of the batteries underside-middle of the vehicle, so it raises the total height (roofline) a few inches as a result. As battery density increases with new battery types in the future, this will be less of a factor as they'll need less storage space and the vehicle can go back to a more traditional height. Tesla has, for the most part, done a decent job hiding this issue with their Model S and 3.

A lot of the more affordable EVs seem to be trending in the butt ugly department. I think with the loss of differentiation in the details, electric vehicles are being segmented on appearance. Ugly = cheap. Boring = sporty. Attractive = you can't afford. There's been an element of truth to this with gas powered cars as well, but the lines seem to be getting blurred less with the EVs being released.

Just paid my £100 to get on the pre-order list, much as I love my stinger, 75% on my driving is in the city. 15mpg and constantly having the ppf light on is getting to me

Petrol particulate filter, I assume it is called a Gasoline particulate filter in the US (if you have them at all).
Thanks. (I hate acronyms:rolleyes:)

The Press Releaseis on KIA’s site and they also have the world premier video up as well. Adding that here:

I just watched this again and I am really impressed with Kia's vision and commitment ...............then I think about their dealer network .....................they need to clean house to meet the potential that Kia is going to expect ...............my dealer fumbles the ball with their current portfolio , when all the really new stuff hits they will be so overwhelmed ...................... :cry: :lipsaresealed::thumbdown:
