    The application of a numbered door sill plate on the driver’s side provides authentication of exclusivity, boasting that only 1,000 units will be built globally.

    “As we enter a new age of mobility, Kia will satisfy the needs of customers who seek to enjoy elevated levels of dynamic driving pleasure through high-performance electrified models such as the EV6 GT. And the brand’s strategy to continue accelerating the development of innovative electrification technologies will ensure that sustainability and strong performance combine effortlessly under the Kia badge,” the executive added.

    Meanwhile, the Korean automotive marque guaranteed that its high-performance spirit will continue through its GT models.

    To note, Kia Philippines (under the Ayala-led AC Motors) brought in the Stinger in April 2019, during the 2019 Manila International Auto Show. The local-spec Kia Stinger, as of writing, is still being retailed for P3.235 million.
