Kia EV6 has achieved product carbon footprint certification, along with ‘Carbon Measured’ label from the global climate change and sustainability consultancy the Carbon Trust. This makes Kia the first Korean vehicle manufacturer with such a certificate. Kia has a strong competition in the electric car space, but they’ve proven themselves with some of the features they’ve built. EV6 takes less than 18 minutes to charge from 10 to 80%, thanks to its 800V high-speed multi-charging system.
Carbon Trust partners with businesses, organizations and governments around the globe with the mission to create a more sustainable future. With their expertise and technologies, they employ various methods including target setting, energy systems and climate action plans, in order to help navigate the risks of climate change, and reduce the environmental footprint that some of these businesses have.
A range of eco-friendly materials have been introduced to EV6 including PET recycled plastics, floor mats and seat coverings meaning one model contains the equivalent of 107 500ml PET bottles. There’s an awesome 3D Visualizer of the car model, that you can check out on their official website at this link.
Kia has developed an ICCU (Integrated Charging Control Unit) that enables a new vehicle-to-load(V2L), which can additionally discharge energy from the vehicle battery without additional components, functioning as a convenient portable electricity supply. It can even serve as a power source for your home, in case of an emergency.
