If you’re interested in getting the Kia EV6 EV, but you can’t quite afford $42,695 starting price, then maybe you’ll be more interested in Kia’s other EV, the slightly more affordable Kia Niro EV. The pricing for the 2023 Niro EV starts at $40,745, including destination, which means that it is about $2k cheaper than the EV6.
The Niro also comes with a slightly longer driving range than the base EV6, at 253 miles vs 232 miles. The EV6 is offered with a bigger battery that gives it range up to 310 miles, but that also comes with a much higher price tag.
The only downside for both of Kia’s EVs is that they are not eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit due to the Inflation Reduction Act, which only gives the credit to EVs built in America. Kia is reportedly going to start building EVs in the US, but that isn’t for a few more years.
