KIA is preparing a whole “bunch” of “green” cars in the near futureOctober 16, 2018
Environmentally friendly cars is a trend of the modern market. Various hybrids, minicars, electric cars and hydrogen cars are increasingly heard. KIA is ready to “break in” in this market segment.
South Korean company KIA is ready to bring to the market a variety of models aimed at preserving the surrounding nature. So, already at the beginning of the year, the Hyundai Nexo will appear in the US with a hydrogen unit, which will later be transferred to the KIA car. The power plant for 163 horsepower and 394 Nm of torque will be able to provide up to 600 km of track on one refueling.
The concept of a hydrogen car can be shown as early as 2019, and it will be available no earlier than 2020. The cost of the base model can be about 60,000 dollars.
“We are going to make a hybrid wagon Sportswagon, and then decide whether there is a sense in other body types,” – explained the director of marketing Arthur Martins. And in November, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, a new version of the electric KIA Soul will be presented.
Also, the Optima sedan and the Sportage and Sorento crossovers, which are preparing to get their hybrid versions, will not stay aside.
