– Experts selected EV6 for its modern, cutting-edge interior design

– Kia’s first dedicated EV continues to earn accolades within months of launch


The 2022 Kia EV6 was named winner of a Wards 10 Best Interiors & UX award.  The EV6 is Kia’s first dedicated battery-electric vehicle and is the first step in a projected cadence of efficient and progressive vehicles guided by the brand’s ‘Plan S’ strategy.

“We are honored to receive this award for the EV6, which represents an important step toward Kia’s transformative ‘Plan S’ global electrification strategy,” said Steven Center, COO and EVP, Kia America. “The EV6’s modern, bold design elements and interior solutions thoughtfully integrated with intuitive technology reinforce Kia’s future-forward vision for electric vehicles.”

To determine the winners, the team at Wards evaluates new or heavily redesigned vehicle interiors and user-experience technology.  Scoring is based on a variety of metrics including design and aesthetics, comfort, materials, fit-and-finish, connectivity and infotainment, displays and controls, advanced driver assist systems and value.

“The Kia EV6 is a solid overall value, with a stylish and sporty interior and highly innovative morphing controls that save space and reduce clutter,” said Drew Winter, WardsAuto editor and judge. “That, plus its very spacious and comfortable cabin and top-notch materials, put the EV6 firmly on our 2022 Wards 10 Best Interiors & UX list.”

The EV6 continues to rise in popularity. To date, more than 10,000 EV6 models have been sold throughout the U.S., contributing to the 132-percent growth in sales of Kia’s electrified vehicles over the previous May record set in 2021; and the 5-percent increase over the all-time monthly sales record for the vehicle category set in March of 2022.

Boutique Interiors Agency HC Marketing Appoints Andy Bargery as Business Advisor

Hana Clode, the founder of boutique marketing agency for interior businesses HC Marketing, has appointed Andy Bargery of Agency Squared as an advisor as she seeks to accelerate her agency’s growth in 2021. HC Marketing specialises in digital marketing for premium home and interior companies. It has a team of skilled marketers, an enviable reputation, and a client roster of interior designers, product manufacturers, and design and build firms since starting up in 2018.

Clode’s ambition is to develop HC Marketing into a brand associated with beautiful and impactful marketing for interiors businesses. She needed to strengthen the senior management team to build on her current success and achieve an ambitious long term growth plan. The appointment of agency veteran Andy Bargery brings business management and marketing experience from a career spanning more than 20 years, primarily in agency roles.

Hana Clode, Founder of HC Marketing, said: I have spent over ten years in sales and marketing, five of those in the world of interiors. Our business model has evolved organically around the needs of our customers. Still, as we grow, I felt we needed to ‘get the house in order’ with somebody who knows the business side of running marketing agencies. Andy came highly recommended, and I am looking forward to working together to kickstart the next phase of our company’s growth.

Andy Bargery, Founder of Agency Squared, said: I am delighted to join Hana and the HC Marketing team. Hana has achieved a lot quickly but needed to strengthen the back of house and acquire some assistance with strategy and management to reach her objectives. I’m over the moon to be a part of this exciting agency and to share my expertise as Hana seeks the next phase of growth for her agency.
