Kia has confirmed that the Stinger is no longer available for orders. This makes way for the new Kia EV6 GT electric crossover, which is the most powerful car ever produced by Kia, to become the brand's new flagship model.
Since it came out in 2017, the Kia Stinger has been updated several times to make it more appealing in the highly competitive European sports car market. With its 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, the Kia Stinger sports car was Kia's fastest car, going from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.
Stinger was also a very well-known Kia. The high-performance, rear-wheel-drive sports sedan made a strong statement about the brand and could travel long distances in comfort and style. Kia's grand tourer also made the brand known to a new type of car buyer. This was a big part of how people now think of the brand.
The new Kia EV6 GT electric crossover can be the new icon model. The first deliveries to customers will start at the start of the new year. The new model is faster than the Kia Stinger, going from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, and the most powerful production car Kia has ever made. Its dual-motorized electric powertrain produces 585 hp (430 kW) and 740 Nm of torque.
The new Kia EV6 GT electric car is built on Kia's Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), designed to handle the car's large amount of electric power. The Kia EV6 GT has a powerful motor on each axle and a long-range 77.4 kWh battery under the flat cabin floor. It also has a lot of space inside and is styled after a coupé. It has a range of 424 km (WLTP combined) and can be charged from 10 to 80 percent in just 18 minutes with a DC charger that can provide at least 240 kW of charging power.
Rasmus Aagaard, COO of Kia Denmark, said, "With a focus on commitment, quality, and design, the Stinger has been a transformative model for Kia, showing what Kia can do and helping to change people's ideas about our brand. The Kia EV6 GT is a good substitute. The EV6 GT is a true new flagship for our brand and the beginning of a new era of electric mobility. It has high-performance features, a fantastic design, and an electric powertrain with a long range."
Kia will fill all orders for the Stinger that have already been placed, and It will continue to offer full customer service and support for all Stinger owners. The Kia dealer network is where the first EV6 GTs sold to customers will be sent. This will happen around the new year.
The new Kia EV6 GT will cost you $85,500.
