Highlights

  • Kia made the announcement at the 2021 CEO Investor Day in Korea
  • The Electric Vehicle is codenamed 'CV'
  • The details of the car will be out in March 2021

It was in January this year that Kia unraveled its 'Plan S' which announced its pre-emptive and enterprising 'shift' from a business system focused on internal combustion engines toward one centred on electric vehicles and customized mobility solutions. This two-track strategy will be the centre of innovation and of course profitability.

Now however, it looks like the company has put this plan on the fast track. At the 2021 CEO Investor Day, held digitally in Seoul, Ho Sung Song, President and CEO of Kia Corporation, presented an update to the company's mid- to long-term roadmap. He said that the company will launch its first dedicated EV later this year but now we now that the car will be unveiled next month. Now the company already has electric vehicles like the Soul and the Niro, but they already were built on a platform which spawned petrol variants. The new EV which will be unveiled in March is based on an all new platform which will be built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform specifically dedicated to electric cars.
