(NewsUSA) – The auto industry is promoting electric cars as the “next best thing,” and the latest generation of electric vehicles (EVs) can match conventional cars in terms of performance, convenience, and style.
Although EVs took some time to gain traction in the United States, their popularity is growing, thanks to several improvements made in the latest models.
Consumers want EVs that offer more power, range, and fast charging. As the new batteries in EVs can store enough energy to travel several hundred miles on one charge and some electric charging stations can replenish a vehicle’s batteries up to 80% capacity in under 18 minutes, the range anxiety that once deterred drivers is now mostly a thing of the past.
Car buyers don’t want to sacrifice comfort and style, either, and manufacturers are stepping up to this challenge with roomy designs that are on par with conventional vehicles.
Consumers are beginning to grasp the benefits of owning EVs, which include reducing environmental guilt, spending less time refueling, and never having to change their oil again.
According to Brian Moody, Executive Editor for Autotrader, “Consumers are ready to switch to electric vehicles.” A good example of the latest in EV technology is the EV6, Kia’s first foray into the battery-powered vehicle market.
With its ultra-fast 350-kilowatt charger, the EV6 can recharge from 10% to 80% in less than 18 minutes and can run for up to 210 miles on a single charge.
The EV6 comes with both rear-wheel and dual-motor all-wheel drive, two battery sizes; 58.0 kWh and 77.4 kWh, and the latest battery technology delivers 576 HP power, allowing the car to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds.
The EV6’s design follows the trend of current crossovers, with its four-door sedan body and seating for up to five passengers. Kia has also incorporated a distinctive Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) feature that enables the use of the battery as a mobile power source for multiple applications, according to its website.
The EV6 is set to appear on the market in early 2022, and its combination of performance, style, and functionality makes it a powerful competitor in the EV sector. For more information about the EV6 and the latest in electric vehicle technology, visit Kia.com.
