Kia EV6 is expected to launch in India early next month. It will be the automaker’s first electric vehicle in the country, and obviously there’s a lot of anticipation surrounding the announcement. The car was recently spotted at the company’s factory in Andhra Pradesh giving an overview of the color options that would be available at launch and obviously the design. Specifications of Kia EV6 in India will likely be the same as the global variant, which was introduced in March 2021. However, there is speculation that Kia will only import a handful (100) units into the country and will expand the numbers based on upon receipt. It would be interesting to see where Kia places its next EV6 in India in terms of price.

The launch of Kia EV6 in India is scheduled for June 2. It will be the brand’s first electric vehicle in the country. The car can be booked online through the company’s official website for a token amount of Rs 3 lakh. That said, the price of the Kia EV6 in India would be anything but affordable.

Kia EV6 price in India (expected)

The Kia EV6 price in India is expected to be around Rs 50-60 lakh and will arrive via CBU route aka Completely Built Up. This means that the car will be imported into the country instead of being manufactured locally, which may increase its overall price. As noted, Kia is only bringing 100 units of the EV6 this year, which will be distributed through 15 dealerships in 12 cities nationwide.
