Kia Motors plans to enrich its range by launching 7 new fully electric cars by 2027. New zero-pollution vehicles will of course fall into different categories. The Korean company also gave a teaser photo, showing clearly at least three crossovers, one with a much lower height where it can be a sports model, while the rest are hatchbacks.
Ho Sung Song, President and Chief Executive Officer, Kia Motors Corporation, said, “Kia has sold more than 100,000 BEVs worldwide since the introduction of our first mass-produced BEV in 2011, the Kia Ray EV. Since then, we have started to introduce a range of new BEVs for global markets and announced plans to accelerate this process in the years ahead. By refocusing our business on electrification, we are aiming for BEVs to account for 25 percent of our total worldwide sales by 2029.”

The Korean company is particularly interested in zero-pollution vehicles and in its range so far it has two pure electric models. One is the Kia e-Niro SUV and the e-SOUL and Kia plans to further develop its electric fleet so that by the end of the decade it has a full range of electric vehicles.
Kia wants by 2025 20% of its annual sales (approximately 500,000 cars) to consist of electric vehicles, holding 6.6% of the share of the global electric model market (outside China).
