As demonstrated in the video, the Kia EV6 utilises radar technology to assess the distance from the vehicle in front of it. The electric crossover features a special auto mode that automatically adjusts the braking regeneration level based on this distance. If the vehicle in front is close, the braking regeneration will be high; if the vehicle in front is far, the regeneration level will decrease. This not only maximizes the driving range but also enhances the comfort and smoothness of your drive.
