The GT moves the standard model's rear motor to the front axle, filling the gap with an even more powerful unit.

Together, the EV6 GT's dual-motor setup is good for 576 rear-biased horsepower.

The additional power comes at a cost. Range drops to just 206 miles per charge.

Stickier tires, more aggressive power usage and additional weight are to blame.

Big 15-inch brakes with four-piston calipers peer from behind the 21-inch wheels and Z-rated tires.
