Kia EV6 Warranty and Servicing

The Kia electric car is backed by a seven-year, unlimited kilometre vehicle warranty and a seven-year/150,000km battery warranty.

There’s also up to eight years of roadside assistance coverage when serviced with Kia’s nationwide dealers and capped-priced servicing is available for the first seven maintenance visits.

Servicing is required every 12 months/15,000km.

Owners can also buy three-, five- and seven-year prepaid service plans for $594, $1089 and $1584 respectively – but all aren’t cheaper than regular ‘pay as you go’ servicing.

For the EV6 GT, it's more expensive at $733 for three years, $1371 for five years, and $2013 for seven years.
