Five colour choices are on offer – Moonscape, Runway Red, Snow White Pearl, Yacht Blue and Aurora Black Pearl.

Inside, the EV6 has standard dual 12.3-inch displays for the driver’s instrumentation and infotainment, paired with a 14-speaker Meridian sound system in the top-spec AWD variant. You also get powered and ventilated front seats, wireless phone charger and a panoramic sunroof.  The pricier EV6 AWD adds an augmented reality head-up display and powered tailgate to the long features list. Both variants are capable of powering other devices and charging other EVs using the V2L (vehicle-to-load) technology.
