The front end is a beast in its own right, but it’s also beautiful, thanks to some exaggerated molding on the hood, ending in an aggressive little nose.

The Kia EV6 is available in a single-motor, rear-wheel-drive configuration with a choice of battery sizes, but my tester packs an additional motor and the largest battery on offer.

Its 77.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery powers the two motors, producing 320 net horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque.
