Kia achieved an excellent result at this year’s World Car Awards competition, as the Kia EV6 GT model was crowned with the title of World Performance Car 2023.
The award, announced at the awards ceremony at the New York International Auto Show, was handed out by a jury of 100 distinguished international automotive journalists from 32 countries.
The Kia EV6 GT with the prestigious World Performance Car award builds on the already excellent offer of the standard model, which, in addition to other prestigious awards, has already won the title of European Car of the Year 2022 and the North American Award of Utility Vehicle 2023.
The all-electric EV6 GT with a total power of 585 hp, which enables acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 260 km/h, with a long range on a single charge, a spacious interior and a refined design, has defeated fierce competition from renowned sports cars with a gasoline engine.
The EV6 GT was designed in accordance with Kia’s new direction, which emphasizes that movement is the basis of human development, as it enables people to get to know new places, establish new relationships and gain new experiences. Kia wants to help customers make those connections by offering exciting models, innovative cabin space and convenient services that inspire customers and leave them free time for the activities they enjoy most.
