The 2023 Kia EV6 has been awarded the 2022 Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) rating[i][i].
The EV6 earned ratings of “good” in all six 2022 IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side (original 2022 test), roof strength and head restraint tests. It also earned a “superior” rating for available front crash prevention (vehicle-to-vehicle and (daytime) vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations), and a “good” rating for standard headlights.
The arrival of the EV6 in 2022 – the brand’s first dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) – signaled the U.S. launch of Kia’s ‘Plan S’ strategy that aims to deliver 14 all-new electrified models across the world by 2027. The EV6 is rated at an EPA-estimated 310-miles[ii][ii] of all-electric range (AER) in its Wind and GT-Line RWD trims[iii][iii] and offers features such as an Onboard Power Generator[iv][iv] and a flat-floor interior that utilizes innovative materials throughout the cabin. The EV6 also offers a wide array of advanced driver assistance systems[v][v], adding a remarkable level of connectivity and other features.
“The EV6 is a landmark addition to our lineup and it has received massive consumer interest in its first year” said Steven Center, COO & EVP, Kia America. “We are proud that the 2023 EV6 received a 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, reflecting Kia’s commitment to innovative products that prioritize safety and performance.”
