TOI’s AccordingFor the Kia EV6 Air, this Expedition Expert plans to drive the Max Adventure EV6 from Oslo, Norway to Lisbon, Portugal in just five days. The 5,760 km ‘Driven To Extremes Euro EV Marathon’ expedition will visit 15 countries in just 120 hours.
The report suggests that in collaboration with Kia UK, the team will begin the drive on September 5 and will aim to reach Lisbon on September 9 (World EV Day). This is the second time the team is opting to use the Kia EV6. Earlier, the company recently used the car to complete the first ‘Fen to Fell’ drive in an EV, a 334 kilometer route from the lowest to the highest roads in the UK. It was the first time an electric car was used in it and the car did it in a single charge, with a range of 171 km at the end.
Team UK will reportedly use ‘Kia Charge’ for easy access to chargers in Northern Ireland and all parts of Europe.
The EV6 ‘Air’ claims a WLTP range of 525 km on a single charge. The car also gets 800V ultra-rapid charging technology, which will charge the car in a matter of minutes during pit stops. Explain that it can charge from 10 to 80 percent in 18 minutes using a 350 kW charger, or from 10 to 80 percent in 1 hour 13 minutes using a 50 kW charger.
