Kia and Electrify America Partner Up for New EV6 Incentive

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022

Kia Corp wowed the world when it unveiled the Kia EV6, the first all-electric vehicle from the automaker that has no gasoline-powered predecessor. Kia usually makes a gasoline vehicle, then makes a hybrid based on its popularity, and then a plug-in based on the hybrid’s success, and so on. The Kia Niro crossover was the first vehicle to be a hybrid with no pure-gasoline model as its predecessor, followed by the Niro Plug-in Hybrid and Niro EV. Well, the EV6 is one-of-a-kind, and to show it some more love, Kia America and Electrify America have announced a new partnership. Consumers who buy a new Kia EV6 will benefit from 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh), free of charge, at any Electrify America station across the U.S.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the average consumer drivers about 1200 miles/month, 40/day. The EV6 has an EPA-rated 310-mile range.
