Kia has released details about the 2025 update for its EV6 electric vehicle, which includes an array of technical improvements and design modifications.

The refreshed model, which has begun sales in South Korea, is scheduled to be available in Australian markets between October and December of this year, assuming no delays occur.

The latest iteration of the EV6 is equipped with a new 84kWh battery, an increase from the previous 77.4kWh, which extends the driving range to up to 494km according to South Korean testing protocols.

This model maintains options for both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, with the all-wheel version featuring dual motors that deliver up to 239kW and 605Nm of power.

Charging times are reported to remain constant, with an 18-minute interval to charge from 10 to 80 percent using a 350kW charger, although practical charging speeds have been noted to vary.

Exterior updates include new adaptive LED headlights, redesigned alloy wheels, and updates to the rear bumper.

Internally, the vehicle now includes updated 'ccNC' software on its dual 12.3-inch screens, and for the first time in this model, offers wireless Apple CarPlay as part of its infotainment system.

The new steering wheel design incorporates a capacitive sensor for enhanced driver assistance functionality, and the vehicle includes updated touch-sensitive controls for various comfort settings.

The 2025 EV6 also introduces enhancements in safety and driving assistance systems.

These include the new Highway Driving Assist 2 software, an improved smart park assist capable of handling diagonal parking spaces, and the inclusion of additional rear-side airbags, totalling 10 for the model.

These updates are part of the vehicle's features aimed at maintaining relevant safety and technological standards in the electric vehicle segment.

In summary, the 2025 Kia EV6 offers several updates in battery capacity, technology, and safety features, set to be available in the Australian market by late 2024.
