Battery and performance

The EV6 GT Line is powered by the 77.4 kWh battery, which is mated to either a single or dial electric motor. The EV paired with the single motor gets Rear-Wheel Drivetrain (RWD) that generates a power of 226 bhp and a torque of 320 NM and the one with the dual motor gets an All-Wheel Drivetrain (AWD), which is capable of generating 320 bhp of power and a torque of 650 Nm. 

The RWD model claims a range of 528 km while the AWD model provides a range of 425 km.

The vehicle should ideally take 7 hours and 20 minutes to charge from 10-100% via a home charger, and via a DC fast charger the EV can go from 10-80% in 18 minutes.
