Kia EV6 spotted in multiple colour options
The Kia EV6 seems to be ready for launch, as the car was spied in multiple shades of colour in what looks like Kia’s own premise. The pictures that have come along so far show the Red, White, and Silver hues on the car. There could be other colour variants of the Kia EV6, including black, blue, and grey, as well.
Additionally, as seen from the images, the cars seem to have come fresh off the production line and still have protective films on the body. This suggests that the Kia EV6 launch is just around the corner.
