The accolade was bestowed upon the EV6 GT by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) during their annual celebration of the most outstanding new cars in the automotive industry. Notably, this marks the second consecutive SCOTY award for the EV6 series, following the standard model’s recognition as the ‘Best EV over £40,000’ at the 2022 awards.

The ASMW’s jury commented: “We were bowled over by the high performance and handling prowess of the EV6 GT, but also its abundant quality and all-round ease of use. It’s a powerful car that you can realistically use every day. This potent combination makes the EV6 GT an obvious winner of the ‘Performance Car of the Year’ award.”

The EV6 GT boasts a fully electric dual-motor configuration that generates an impressive 577bhp and 740Nm of torque. This powertrain propels the vehicle from 0-to-62mph in a mere 3.5 seconds, outpacing many more expensive high-performance cars.

Built on Kia’s innovative Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) technology, the EV6 GT offers the essential attributes for a true ‘grand touring’ experience. With a remarkable driving range of up to 263 miles (WLTP combined cycle), it assures long journeys with confidence. Additionally, its cutting-edge 800V ultra-fast charging technology enables rapid charging, allowing it to replenish from 10-to-80 per cent in just 18 minutes when utilizing the fastest public chargers*.

The starting price for the Kia EV6 GT is set at £62,645. Interested buyers can place their orders through Kia dealerships across the UK, benefitting from Kia’s standard seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
