The new compact cross KIA Seltos will acquire an electric version of EV.

Such a machine is available in the table of new products of the South Korean brand, which are scheduled for release in the second half of this year. The document itself on Saturday, June 20, was distributed by IndianAutosblog.

Judging by the fact that the electric KIA Seltos EV will appear in China, in fact it may become an updated modification of the current KIA KX3 EV.

There is currently no information on the characteristics of the new model. The current KIA KX3 EV has a 110-horsepower electric motor, powered by a 45.2 kWh lithium-ion battery with a range on a single charge of up to 300 km. The maximum speed of the cross is 150 km / h.

Probably, Seltos EV will be offered in two versions – standard and long-range, which will acquire an 184-horsepower electric motor from the Elantra EV sedan and a more capacious battery at 56.5 kW / h with autonomy up to 500 km.

Electric Seltos for China should begin to be released in August this year. The production volume, according to the plans of the corporation, will be 10,000 cars per year.

In addition, Kia recently published an image of the new Carnival minivan. Novelty should be released in South Korea in the third quarter of this year.
