Kia EV6 smashes Tesla’s world record

Kia EV6

Recently, the Kia EV6 was also taken on a coast-to-coast road trip from New York to Los Angeles and set another new world record in the process.

During the seven-day trip, the Kia EV6 was charged for a total of seven hours, 10 minutes, and one second. That was fast enough for it to set a new Guinness World Record for shortest charging time to cross the United States in an electric vehicle. Impressively, it shattered the previous record set by Tesla by more than five and a half hours. For reference, the Tesla needed to be charged for a total of 12 hours, 48 minutes, and 19 seconds.
