What Is The Latest On Kia EV?

January 2021, Kia released many teasers of what would be its EVs. Already, the Korean brand has announced its intention to introduce 11 new electric vehicles before the end of 2026. These EVs would include SUVs and sedans.

Kia already offers 2 EVs, including the Soul EV and the Niro EV, but the Korean automaker is not slowing down anytime soon as it plans to add more EVs to the lineup, and this time, a uniquely built EVs. Kia has confirmed that its next nine EVs will follow a simple naming system. Each incoming EV’s name will start with “EV” and a number sequence. It would be named from ‘EV1’ to ‘EV9’.

Of the different EVs from the teasers released by Kia, three crossovers SUV EVs got a lot of auto enthusiasts asking lots of questions; one, in particular, is the EV6. Speaking about this, the head of Kia Global Design, Karim Habib, described the EV6 as “a powerful and dynamic crossover…a fun and practical commuter…a strong and bold SUV”. The Kia EV6 would be the first of the Kia’s dedicated EVs to hit the market.

Kia EV Platform

Out of the 11 new EVs Kia has promised to offer by 2026, seven will be made available soon. These first seven Kia dedicated EVs would be built on the Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP electric platform. This is the same EV architecture, which the recently launched Hyundai Ioniq 5 with 77.4-kWh battery pack was built on.

Kia EV6

The Kia EV6 will be the first of the new Kia dedicated EVs to hit the market by 2026. While the Kia EV6 would be available for leasing much soon, which in itself is great news for fans anxiously waiting for a new Kia EV to lease.

Built on the Hyundai’s E-GMP electric platform, just as the Hyundai’s Ioniq 5, we expect this Korean automaker’s first dedicated EV to come with the similar 77.4-kWh battery pack of the Ioniq 5, a single electric motor for the rear wheels, and an optional dual-motor all-wheel-drive setup. While the Ioniq gets a driving range of 300 miles per charge, the EV6 will likely boast the same, with 215 to 302 horsepower.

Kia EV9

During the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, Kia unveiled an extra-large SUV concept EV, which would later go into production as the EV9 SUV will be built on Hyundai’s 800V E-GMP platform just like the EV6. This Soul-like large SUV EV, described as a “strong and bold SUV” by Kia, will likely come with an estimated range of up to 300 miles per charge.

While these new Kia dedicated EVs are pretty much around the corner, Kia already offers impressive EVs in the boxy Soul EV and the subcompact Niro SUV EV to delight any shopper that looks close.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
