The KIA EV6 GT is powered by a dual motor, all-wheel-drive electric powertrain and kia is faster than porsche.

An electric motor powers the front wheels and an even larger one powers the rear ones.

EV 6 GT delivers 576 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque in total.


In simple terms, this means the EV6 GT can accelerate from standstill to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.

That’s quicker than a Porsche Taycan GTS.

Speaking of speed, it only takes about 18 minutes to charge the battery of the EV6 GT from 10 percent to 80 percent.

This is because the KIA GT6 supports ultra-fast 800V charging.

Design-wise, the EV6 GT combines the aesthetics of a sedan with the proportions and size of an SUV.

The company calls this a ‘crossover’ but to be fair, that description always sounds a bit vague, doesn’t it?

KIA EV6 GT is certainly taller and shorter than a Porsche Taycan.

If we had to draw a comparison, we’d probably say it looks like a slightly less boxy Tesla Model Y.

The cabin is the usual triumph of displays.

Mind you, in addition to the digital touchscreen display in the dashboard, you also have access to some physical buttons and knobs.

But the best part about it is the price.

A brand-new Porsche Taycan GTS will set you back $134,100.

And that’s before you even look at the option list.

Meanwhile, pricing for the KIA GT starts at $61,400.
