SEOUL, Sept. 29 (Yonhap) -- Kia Corp., South Korea's second-biggest carmaker, said Thursday it will launch the pure electric high-performance model EV6 GT in the domestic market next week in a move to beef up its EV lineup.

The EV6 GT comes with a 77.4 kWh battery pack and can travel up to 342 kilometers on a single charge. It can accelerate from zero to 100 km in only 3.5 seconds, the company said in a statement.

The company said the EV6 GT will be the "fastest car" among passenger vehicles manufactured in the country so far.

Kia plans to release high-performance GT versions of its upcoming all-electric models to woo customers.

The EV6 GT is equipped with Hyundai Motor Group's dedicated EV platform called E-GMP. It is being sold at 72 million won (US$53 million) after tax breaks.

Other models with the E-GMP platform include the Hyundai IONIQ 5, the Kia EV6 sedan and the Genesis GV60 SUV. Hyundai Motor sells vehicles under Hyundai as well as the independent Genesis brand.
