Besides delivering 200 units of the EV6, Kia is planning to deliver more pending units of the electric crossover this year in India

Kia India has today announced that it has delivered 200 units of the EV6 flagship electric vehicle in the domestic market until now. The South Korean auto major has noted that the reception has been overwhelming and the volumes are twice that of what was initially planned as the brand planned to deliver 100 examples of the EV6 this calendar year.

Buoyed by its good initial reception, Kia has increased the total allocation of the electric crossover this year. It is also intending to complete pending deliveries within 2022 itself. The Kia EV6 made its local debut by the middle of this year and its deliveries only began in September. Even before the launch, the EV6 gained 355 reservations across India.

Kia is planning to deliver additional units to the consumers in the coming days. Speaking of the success, Myung-sik Sohn, Chief Sales Officer, Kia India said, “The EV6 is considered to be amongst the most sophisticated products by Kia ever and is a demonstration of our technological prowess and capabilities.”
