As we found out during our first trip, the Kia EV6 is one of the best electric cars available off the coast of the US, but now that it has arrived, some dealers have beaten it up with big surcharges.
The most expensive version of the EV6 available in the US is this The first edition. The release of this model is only 1,500 units, and pre-orders for it were opened last June. It has a $ 58,500 MSRP. However, the McGrath Arlington Kia dealership in Palatine, Illinois, showed the EV6 First Edition with a total price of $ 78,875, which includes a markup of $ 12,000, a “salon protection package” of $ 3,995 and a “professional package” for 2 $ 495.
It is unclear whether the dealership itself has placed a pre-order for the First Edition model or the original booking owner has refused to sell.
First disc: Kia EV6 2022 is a new benchmark for EV
This is not the only one 2022 EV6 get a big markup. A look at Autotrader shows that the Mark KIA dealership in Scottsdale, Arizona, has a pair of EV6 GT-Line models for sale, both with asking prices in excess of the $ 80,000 mark. The first is the example of the Glacier White with green leather seats, the asking price of which is $ 80,926, and the second is the Steel Matte Gray model with black leather seats and the asking price of $ 80,925.
Talking to Motor1A Kia spokesman said the company encourages its dealers to put prices on their cars fairly.
“Dealers are independent companies, but we ask them to set fair prices and take into account customer satisfaction throughout the purchase process,” said a spokesman.
Although paying more than $ 80,000 for an electric Kia is big money, we recently concluded that the EV6 is a new benchmark in its EV market segment. We are confident that the future GT option will be even better.
