  • Kia to launch 15 EVs worldwide by 2027
    The Kia EV6 and Niro EV both form a crucial part of Kia’s global plan of having 15 EVs on sale by 2027, and are sold in the UK alongside the Soul EV and all-new EV9. The introduction of the new ‘Horizon’ models ensures even more choice and value to UK customers considering making the switch to fully electric motoring.

Notes to Editor:

*Front parking sensors may not match exterior body colour
**Range figures are determined according to the standardised EU measurement procedure (WLTP). Individual driving style and other factors, such as speed, outside temperature, topography and the use of electricity-consuming devices/units, have an influence on the real-life range and can possibly reduce it.
*** In order to achieve the maximum charging speed, EV6 must use an 800-volt electric vehicle charger that delivers at least 240kW of electricity. Actual charging speed and charging time may be influenced by the battery temperature and weather conditions.
