The Kia EV6 It is the model that has sounded all the alarms. The progression of the Korean firm was known throughout the sector, but this model has been a turning point. It is so important that without even making noise they have passed over opponents as tough as the Volkswagen Group. But beware, this model is the beginning of what is to come and for this, many things still have to change within the commercial structure of the firm.
With the EV6 Kia officials want to follow a similar path to that of Hyundai and IONIQ. They do not have the privilege of having a sub-brand in its range, but they are going to create a new family. This is much more ecological than the one you have sold so far and this, of course, deserves a distinction. Therefore, they would have gone to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) to apply for legal protection of a name series.

In theory, the most “basic” is the “Air” although this could change depending on the market in question. This source also indicates that the access version would also be available in Spain. However, for the time being Web not listed.
Here are the prices of the new Kia EV6, the Korean electric 585 hp
Be that as it may, it seems like a very successful strategy. The translation of these words are: Air, Earth, Light and Water. They seem very appropriate to associate them with the sales process of an electric model that promises more than 500 kilometers of autonomy with a charge of its batteries. We will have to be very attentive to how the Spanish division of Kia acts to structure the range of this model. His future will depend on its success, although it seems bright.
In the next few days we will make a new search in EUIPO to see if, in the end, we find the results …
