TEASER images of the first of Kia's new generation of battery electric vehicles have been released by the Korean car maker showing a crossover-style car with a coupe-like profile.

The EV6 is the first model to be built on the company's new EV platform - the Electric-Global Modular Platform, or E-GMP.

It is also the first of Kia's next-generation BEVs to be developed under a new design philosophy that shows its shift towards electrification.

The car is likely to share its underpinnings with sister brand's Hyundai's new Ioniq 5 which was revealed a few days ago.

"EV6 is the embodiment of both our brand purpose, ‘Movement that inspires', and our new design philosophy," said Karim Habib, senior vice president and head of the Kia Global Design Centre.

"It has been designed to inspire every journey by offering an instinctive and natural experience that improves the daily lives of our customers, and provide user ownership that is simple, intuitive and integrated. Our aim is to design the physical experience of our brand and to create bold, original and inventive electric vehicles."

As part of the company's brand transition, Kia's new battery electric vehicles will be named according to a new strategy and all will start with the prefix ‘EV' which makes it easy for consumers to understand which products are fully electric.

This is followed by a number which corresponds to the car's position in the line-up.

Designed and engineered to embody Kia's new brand slogan, ‘Movement that inspires', EV6 will make its world premiere during the first quarter of 2021.
