The Euniq 6 is powered by a 130 kW electric motor that sends power to the front wheels. The high-voltage battery with an energy content of 70 kWh is said to offer a range of up to 354 kilometers in the combined WLTP – Maxus specifies the range in the WLTP City as up to 452 kilometers. It is not clear from the statement whether the 70 kWh is the installed gross energy content of the battery or the usable net value.

But one thing is clear: the maximum DC charging power of the Euniq 6 is 75 kW. The quick charging time of 35 minutes initially sounds acceptable – however, this time does not apply to the otherwise industry-standard window from ten to 80 percent charge level, but rather to a charging process from 30 to 80 percent. There is therefore no direct comparison.

To classify the Maxus Euniq 6 in the competition: The SUV is 4.74 meters long, 1.86 meters wide without exterior mirrors (the width is not specified with exterior mirrors) and 1.74 meters high. The wheelbase is 2.76 meters. In other words: In terms of length, the Maxus fits in with models like the BMW iX3 (4.73 meters) and the Tesla Model Y (4.75 meters).

Maxus specifies the trunk volume as an impressive 754 liters. However, this is likely to be the roof-high volume of the trunk, not the VDA value up to the parcel shelf that is usual in Germany. It is not specified how large the loading compartment will be with the rear seat backs folded down.

However, with a view to the technical data, customers should be careful about what they transport with a Euniq 6. The trunk volume sounds generous, but the payload is not: there is only 325 kilograms between the stated empty weight (including driver) of 1,960 kilograms and the permissible total weight of 2,285 kilograms. It is possible to use a trailer when transporting heavy objects, but only in moderation: the Euniq 6 can only tow 750 kilograms both unbraked and braked.

In Germany, Maxus only offers the model in the Limited configuration. This includes, among other things, a 12.3-inch cockpit display, an upright 10.4-inch touchscreen for infotainment, LED headlights, panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable, folding and heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, electric Tailgate, leather seats, automatic air conditioning and ambient lighting with 64 colors as well as numerous assistance systems.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin in April 2024. In addition to a vehicle warranty for five years up to 100,000 kilometers, Maxus says it also offers a battery warranty for eight years up to 200,000 kilometers.
