This is the bonkers 585PS Kia EV6 GT

The new high-performance variant of the Kia EV6 is due to get its debut at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard. It’s packing a healthy 585PS (430kW), and it’s callled the Kia EV6 GT.


The fastest Kia on sale was revealed earlier this year with a dual-motor powertrain capable of getting from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds on the way to a top speed of 162mph.

Putting that performance to the test on the Hill will be rally pro Jade Paveley, who was a class champion in the 2021 British Rally Cross Country Championship. GT mode will no doubt come in handy, which primes the e-motors, e-LSD, braking, steering, suspension and stability control for exuberant driving.

When it’s not running up the Hill you’ll be able to catch it on display in the First Glance Paddock and indeed, on the all-new Electric Avenue stand among a number of its electric-powered peers, including its smaller Kia Niro EV sibling.
