What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Kia EV6 Standard Range RWD in the USA comes with a CCS Type 1 charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 11 kW, resulting in approximately 40 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 175 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.
