The model will be manufactured at the new Kia plant in India, which invested 1.1 billion dollars. In total, at an automobile exhibition in New Delhi, the company plans to show 16 models.

According to preliminary data, the novelty will become a serial embodiment of the prototype Telluride. The machine will be built on an elongated Sorento platform. The novelty will be offered with both front and all-wheel drive. It is possible that Kia Telluride will borrow from the concept car hybrid power plant, which includes a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter petrol V6, and an electric motor with a capacity of 130 horsepower.
