Kia’s first dedicated EV continues to earn accolades within months of launch

Irvine, Calif. – The 2022 Kia EV6 was named winner of a Wards 10 Best Interiors & UX award. The EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated battery-electric vehicle and is the first step in a projected cadence of efficient and progressive vehicles guided by the brand’s ‘Plan S’ strategy.

“We are honored to receive this award for the EV6, which represents an important step toward Kia’s transformative ‘Plan S’ global electrification strategy,” said Steven Center, COO and EVP, Kia America. “The EV6’s modern, bold design elements and interior solutions thoughtfully integrated with intuitive technology reinforce Kia’s future-forward vision for electric vehicles.”

To determine the winners, the team at Wards evaluates new or heavily redesigned vehicle interiors and user-experience technology. Scoring is based on a variety of metrics including design and aesthetics, comfort, materials, fit-and-finish, connectivity and infotainment, displays and controls, advanced driver assist systems and value.

“The Kia EV6 is a solid overall value, with a stylish and sporty interior and highly innovative morphing controls that save space and reduce clutter,” said Drew Winter, WardsAuto editor and judge. “That, plus its very spacious and comfortable cabin and top-notch materials, put the EV6 firmly on our 2022 Wards 10 Best Interiors & UX list.”
