Kia ramps up electric cars overseas, Australian plans yet to be confirmed

Kia will introduce two new electric cars by 2021, to bring its tally to 11 electrified vehicles in its fleet by 2025. Although names of the new models are yet to be released, Kia says there will be a plug-in hybrid this year and a full-electric vehicle (EV) slated for a 2021 release. Kia Australia says it is too early to determine whether these models will make it to local showrooms.

The company is working on an ambitious plan to have a fleet of Niro electric cars serving as shuttle vehicles around Melbourne during the event, in place of the familiar stickered-up Carnivals and Sorentos, with the dealer rollout coinciding.

2018 Kia Niro EV spied

The all-electric Kia Niro EV has been spied during development testing in Germany this week. Despite being shrouded in heavy camouflage, we'd suggest the Niro EV will bear a strong resemblance to the Niro hybrid and plug-in hybrid (below). The Niro prototype was also spied alongside a camouflaged version of the upcoming Hyundai Kona EV. It's expected the two electric crossovers will share elements of their underpinnings and technology suite.

Kia Rio GT, SUV spinoff could be on the cards

Kia is examining the possibility of a performance variant and SUV offshoot of the recently revealed 2017 Rio range, with at least the latter a very real possibility. Speaking to CarAdvice at last week’s Paris motor show, Kia Motors Europe’s chief operating officer, Michael Cole, said that while there are no plans for the hot hatch Kia Rio GT for the moment, a styling-focused GT Line model will likely start the process first.
