THEY SAY: "As Kia’s most powerful production car to date, the EV6 GT combines exhilarating performance; first-class long-distance travel capabilities that fuses outstanding refinement with premium comfort; ultra-fast charging tech; and a highly impressive real-world driving range for effortless cross-country touring."

They know what they're doing.
