Booking Cancellation Charges

Kia has started taking bookings for the new Kia EV6 without disclosing the price. But customers who cancel the booking if they don’t like the price will have to pay a big amount.

Kia is charging Rs 3 lakh to book the EV6. If the customer chooses to cancel the booking and get the money back, then he will have to pay Rs 50,000 as a cancellation charge. Kia claims that it has received over 300 bookings for EV6.

Kia EV6 got a 5-star rating

Kia is currently selling only ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) cars in the country like Sonet (Sonet), Seltos (Seltos), Carnival (Carnival), and Carens (Carens). The EV6 will be the company’s 5th car in India. However, this will be the first fully electric car in the company’s Indian portfolio. The company has already introduced its electric car EV6 in the global markets. 

In the Indian market, this model will be sold through the CBU (completely built-up) route and then later assembled at the company’s local plant. Ahead of the launch of the electric car in the country, ANCAP has given a 5-star rating to the EV6 in its recent crash test.
