Kia plans 11 EVs by 2025, headlined by 500km-range crossover

Kia plans to have 11 battery-electric vehicles in its global stable by 2025, headlined by a dedicated EV crossover with a Porsche Taycan-matching 800V electrical architecture and 500km of driving range due next year. The ambitious company plans to sell 500,000 EVs around the world by 2026 (oddly, excluding China where it runs a joint-venture presumably with its own separate targets), equal to 6.6 per cent of global market share.

2020 Kia Sorento recalled

Kia Australia has recalled the 2020 Sorento, over concerns about its autonomous emergency braking system. According to the company, the AEB system might fail when approaching a stationary pedestrian or vehicle. If the system doesn't recognise stationary objects, there's a risk the automatic brake assist mightn't activate, increasing the risk of accident or injury to the driver and other road users. A total of 3315 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Kia: New logo discovered in trademark filing

A new logo could be on the horizon for Kia if trademark filings in South Korea are anything to go by. Motor1 has discovered trademark applications for the new logo at the Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service. This is not the first time we've seen Kia try on a new logo. The Imagine by Kia concept (below), unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show in March, featured Kia badges styled in a similar way.

Except, of course, the Futuron is a coupe crossover which rides on a tall suspension setup.
