    Kia Returns To Super Bowl With EV6 Spot, Announces Pricing

    Kia will return to the Super Bowl this year after sitting last year out. This year's 60-spot, marking Kia's 13th in the game, will star the new all-electric Kia EV6, the brand's first dedicated all-electric model.  The Kia spot will not only spotlight the EV6, but also shine the spotlight on homeless animal shelters thanks to Kia's partnership with the Petfinder Foundation. Here's Kia's teaser featuring a robotic dog that embarks on a journey to find its true companion:


    EV6 Pricing


    Kia is also announcing pricing for the EV6 lineup. It will start from $33,400, after the $7,500 federal vehicle tax credit. Pricing depends on which battery size and trim level you go with, along with rear or all-wheel drive. The EV6 is available with a 58.0 kWh or a 77.4 kWh battery.  The EV6 with the smaller 58.0 kWh battery pack will start from $40,900, and a net price of $33,400, after the $7,500 federal electric vehicle tax credit. The EV6 with the larger 77.4 kWh battery pack starts at $47,000, but Kia says it will cost $39,500 after the federal tax credit. All prices include destination. Kia also says the EV6 may also qualify for various state incentives, including single rider carpool lane access in California.  

    Now for trim levels. It will be offered in three:  Light, Wind and GT-Line.  The Light trim will be offered in rear-wheel drive while Wind and sporty GT-Line variants will be available in rear-wheel drive and Dual Motor e-AWD configurations.
