A prototype of Kia's EV6 electric car was recently spotted in Korea, showcasing a sharper and more aggressive design, signaling a mid-life update for the vehicle. The front end, in particular, has been updated with a more pronounced V-shaped headlight design complemented by daytime running lights, along with two blocky lighting units inside the assembly, and a newly styled bumper.

The prototype also revealed a range of new wheel designs. However, due to the fabric camouflage, it remains uncertain if any changes have been made past the C-pillar, though the tail lights appear to remain the same as the current model. The interior, completely covered, is expected to undergo minor changes to better align with the new EV9.

Captured by Woopa TV, the facelifted EV6 is anticipated to be officially revealed either by the end of this year or early next year. According to VFACTS figures, Kia sold 1147 EV6 units from January to September 2023, marking a 136% increase compared to the same period in 2022. In August, Kia reported an improved supply from its Korean plant, cutting wait times to 2-3 months.

Unsure if any changes are planned beyond the C Pillar

Currently, the Kia EV6 range is priced from $72,590 before on-road costs for the entry-level Air model, and extends to $99,590 before on-road costs for the flagship EV6 GT AWD model.
