The Stonic model is Kia’s small SUV and now it’ll add one more zero-emission model offered by Kia Motors.
The Soul EV was released back in 2014 and it was the first Electric Vehicle Kia offered to customers. Even though this model is still not widely available yet, soon the Soul will receive an update for a long range (hopefully more available too). Recently Kia announced their Niro Subcompact SUV model will also obtain a zero emission model becoming Kia’s second EV car.
The Kia Niro EV is not out yet and Kia is yet bringing another EV model, The Stonic EV. It is said by the end of 2018 we should have 3 EV car available to consumers. This represent a big step ahead of other manufactures since they are not offering a wide availability of EV cars and at that car size. Once again, this confirms Kia’s commitment to future Electric Vehicles.
The Stonic EV could come with a 88 kW electric engine, this engine is currently found at the IONIQ as well, and the battery pack could run for about 200 miles.
Stay tuned for more pictures and details!
This model shown on the picture is not the EV but the Hybrid Model.
