Costs and real consumption: Kia EV6 AWD GT-line

The Kia EV6 AWD GT-line, which costs 61,380 euros, comes up for a consumption check. We determined an average consumption of 24.9 kWh.

The EV6, compared to its platform brother Ioniq, is certainly not a sedan chair, stresses little, remains calm on bumpy roads and confident when driving briskly on the motorway. Since the seats upholstered in imitation leather are comfortable, operation is easy and the profound infotainment is quickly explored, there is little to prevent longer trips. ,

It serves with underbody compartments for loading equipment with an additional storage space (20 liters) under the hood. Here it is noticeable that Kia treats him to two gas pressure springs. And what about the fuel and maintenance costs?

Our test consumption

Kia specifies a WLTP consumption of 18.0 kWh per 100 kilometers for the EV6 AWD GT-line. He moves away from this value in everyday life. We have determined an average consumption of 24.9 kWh, which causes electricity costs of 13.20 euros per 100 kilometers. On the Eco lap, the Kia consumed 18.8 kWh while on the Commuter route it consumed 24.1 kWh. If the Kia was moved in a sporty manner, consumption rose to 34.6 kWh. In November 2022, auto motor und sport calculated a total average price per kWh of charging current for using an electric car in Germany: 52.96 (rounded 53) cents.

Monthly maintenance costs

If you drive as resource-efficiently as we do on our eco tour, you reduce the electricity costs for 100 kilometers to 9.96 euros. The rather violent gait resulted in a sum of 18.34 euros. The vehicle tax costs 0 euros per year for the Kia, the liability insurance is 445 euros. Partial and fully comprehensive insurance cost an additional 136 and 799 euros respectively. Monthly maintenance costs of 267 euros are paid by those who drive the Kia 15,000 kilometers a year. If the mileage is doubled, the sum increases to 495 euros. We leave out the loss in value in this calculation.

This is how it is tested

This is how auto motor und sport measures the power consumption: 70% commuter consumption: short distances of 21 km driven several times with 70% city, 30% overland share. 15% eco-consumption: economically driven driving profile using the maximum range with urban, rural and motorway sections. Motorway speed 130 km/h. 15% sports driver consumption: Constant driving with 80% Vmax (maximum 160 km/h) plus consumption information from a comparison drive, country road and motorway.

The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The basis for the calculation is the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (not under 21). At Allianz, SF12 offers a discount rate of 34 percent for liability and 28 percent for comprehensive insurance. ,

Conclusion

In the auto motor und sport test consumption, the 61,380 euro Kia EV6 AWD GT-line ended up with an average value of 24.9 kWh per 100 kilometers. This means that the electricity costs over this distance are 13.20 euros. The monthly maintenance costs are 267 euros (15,000 km annual mileage) or 495 euros (30,000 km annual mileage).
