February 22, 2022 – Kia America and Electrify America announced a partnership to provide Kia EV6 buyers with 1,000 kWh of complimentary EV charging/energy at any Electrify America station across the U.S. Kia estimates that this will translate into 3,500 to 4,000 miles (depending on the vehicle model and various conditions) of driving for EV6 owners at no charging cost.
Kia customers can access Electrify America’s DC charging network through its mobile app. An enrollment code for the app is provided through the owner’s portal or the Kia Access App after the EV6 owner enrolls into Kia Connect, the brand’s in-car telematics system.
The EV6 77.4 kWh high-density lithium-ion battery allows up to an EPA-rated 310-mile range for road trips and excursions. And its 800V multi-charging architecture enables ultra-fast DC charging capability from 10-80 percent charge (up to 217 miles range) in under 18 minutes at a 350 kW charger, depending on various conditions.
Kia EV6 owners will have three years from the date of purchase to use the 1,000 kWh of complimentary charging. During that time, customers can direct any questions or request guidance from Electrify America’s 24-hour Customer Contact Center.
