The 2022 Kia EV6 was named the 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 a significant 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, carefully integrated with intuitive technology, reinforce Kia’s vision for the future of electric vehicles.”

To determine the winners, Wards’ team evaluates new or heavily redesigned vehicle interiors and technology for user experiences. The score is based on a variety of metrics, including design and aesthetics, comfort, materials, fit and finish, connectivity and infotainment, displays and controls, advanced driver assistance 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 premium materials, puts the EV6 firmly on our 2022 Wards 10 Best Interiors & UX list.”

The EV6 continues to rise in popularity. To date, more than 10,000 EV6 models have been sold across the US, contributing to Kia’s 132 percent growth in electric vehicle sales from the previous record set in May 2021; and the 5 percent increase from the all-time monthly sales record for the vehicle category set in March 2022.
