The EV6 GT-Line from Kia has outranked Audi’s Q4 Sportback e-tron 50 in a competitive evaluation of electric vehicle models by Auto Motor Und Sport, a leading German automotive magazine.
AMS is one of Germany’s top three automotive magazines along with Auto Bild and Auto Zeitung. The magazine enjoys a massive influence on car buyers across Europe, including Germany.
According to Kia on Sunday, the evaluation compared two electric vehicle models: the EV6 GT-Line and the Q4 e-tron. The EV6 GT-Line received higher scores than the Q4 e-tron in six categories, except ‘convenience.’
Notably, the EV6 GT-Line far outpaced the Q4 e-tron in the powertrain category (including acceleration, responsiveness, charging, and electric efficiency), which is considered core competitiveness for an electric vehicle. In the zero-to-60-mile test, the EV6 GT-Line took 5.1 seconds compared with the latter, which took 6.3 seconds.
