More news on the next EV from Kia including its name. See New Kia EV6 electric car teased | Auto Express
I hope they haven't done something silly with the styling. I reserve judgement till I see proper shots of the thing on the road. So far, though, I'm an Ioniq 5 convert. Even that strange crease down the doors doesn't jar when you see the car in the light of day, so to speak.

No rear windscreen wiper is poor IMO. I had a car without that once it was annoying at times.

I've had 2 ... well had one and got one.

The Kia Stinger was great when it rained and I was on the motorway doing 70mph+, but otherwise rubish.

So far my Polestar seems to be fine without one based on this winter's performance.

So I'd assume it's all on the car and aerodynamics over it.

At first glance, the 6 reminds me of the Jag I-Pace, I believe that doesn't have the rear wiper either.
You’re correct - the I-Pace doesn’t have a rear wiper. I’ve found it ok in the two and a half years I’ve had one.
I’m looking at an EV6 GT line. Have put the £100 deposit down.

What swayed you over the new Ioniq? I think I'm likely to get one of those two in a years time. ....... Unless the Tesla "Model 2" looks good.

The completely shallow reason that I prefer the looks of the EV6 to those of the Ioniq.
