Kia EV6 Charging Guide
kia ev6 charging

Charging guide for the Kia EV6, we will go over what sort of cable to use, charge time and the different charging options for home and public charging.

The Kia EV6 came out in 2 models the 50kW standard range and the 77.4kWh long range in both GT-line and Air. With an impressive range of 508km on a single charge and able to charge from 10% to 80% in 18min from a 350kW charger.

Charging from a standard 8a socket will take 30 hours for the 50kW and 46 hours for the long range model from 0% to 100% so we recommend getting a wall charger installed.

All models support vehicle to load and will allow you to use the car as a generator or giant power bank using our V2L adapter

The onboard charger is 11kW so this will also allow 3 phase charging.
If you have 3 phase available at your home, then we recommend the Tron 3 phase charger that will add around 60km of range for every hour plugged in.
If you have single phase then the 7kw Smart EV wall charger is the way to go, this will add around 40km of range per hour plugged in.
