Kia EV6 supply boosted, 2500 units expected next year

Kia Australia says it expects to receive significantly higher supply of the heavily in-desire EV6 across 2023, potentially whittling down latest wait lists.

Kia Australia chief working officer Damien Meredith told CarExpert the expectation for next 12 months was it would receive close to 2500 EV6s from Korea.

This is far more than double what it forecast for 2023 in Oct this 12 months, when it explained it would glance to secure around 100 models of the EV6 every single thirty day period, or at least 1200 every year.

For a tiny additional context, Kia at first planned to provide just 500 EV6s this year and has bought 533 to the finish of November. It now expects to now receive 700 this yr, but not all will be registered by December 31.

In spite of this great news the business nonetheless does not think its a great deal freer supply will meet up with desire for the radically styled electrical crossover – with a backlog of “hundreds” of orders to clear on top of incoming orders.

Back again in January this year Mr Meredith explained he thought the EV6 was able of returning 3000 sales each year “quite easily” if offer constraints weren’t an concern.

The EV6 vary will further more grow upcoming yr also, with present Air and GT-Line variants joined by the delayed EV6 GT halo design in January of 2023.
