Unique light signature

Our one-of-a-kind, rear light signature stretches in a curved line that connects the rear wheel arches on either side. Multiple LEDs create a piano-look effect that makes a striking visual statement.

Wing-type Roof Spoiler

The EV6's roofline is straight and sporty. It ends with a wing-type roof spoiler that not only elevates the design, but also improves the aerodynamics.
