Images about Kia’s first EV car under the new E-GMP electric bespoke platform doesn’t stop appearing, and today we can continue discovering more details of the Futuron concept car based EV SUV, like the LED signature taillight, after caught testing near Hyundai Motor Group R&D Center in Rüsselsheim.

What we know so far?

Kia Motors Europe released its EV Sales Growth Plan including additional information for the first of a new generation of EVs from Kia, to be introduced as soon as next year, on May. The Kia CV will have an unique platform, single-charge driving range of over 500 kilometres and sub-20-minute high-speed charging time.

The first of Kia’s next-generation EVs will be introduced to Europe in 2021, constructed on a unique platform specifically engineered to accommodate the car’s world-leading EV powertrain and technologies. Not only will it offer a crossover design which blurs the boundaries between passenger and sport utility vehicles, as well as a future-oriented user experience.

It will also offer a single-charge driving range of over 500 kilometres, as well as sub-20-minute high-speed charging time. Kia Motors Europe will launch many of the brand’s future global EVs following the introduction of the brand’s maiden dedicated zero-emissions model in 2021.

Check the long wheel base

We expected that the first model were based by the “Imagine by Kia” concept car, but looks like finally the one who reached green light was Futuron, a Coupe SUV electric vehicle showcased for the first time at 2019 China International Import Expo (CIIE) on November last year and premiered new Tiger Face design direction.

Following the launch of Kia’s maiden dedicated EV, codenamed as CV, Kia will introduce several additional zero-emission vehicles from 2022 onwards, with their own EV-specific designs and a new user experience designed to make them even easier to live with day-to-day. But this model looks pretty advanced to be a model released later than the Imagine production version.

What do you think?

    Both the Futuron and Imagine are quite similar. This looks like an Imagine front with a Futuron profile.
    I want one.

      that defeats the point; why wouldn’t they just bring the EV here?

        Americans aren’t buying EVs unless they have a premium badge that can justify the price tag. Why do you think they place the launches in Europe and China? Those countries are pushing hard for EV tech, as well as infrastructure to ensure there isn’t range anxiety and as motivation to move the fossil fuel free cities.

        My position is not to waste the design and launch it like the Niro with a variety of powertrains, preferably a performance hybrid. The design also is more of a medium height CUV, which is how the Outback sells in such high numbers. Some people don’t want a full on bloated CUV/SUV, but like the occasional capability of one.

      Not possible, first dedicated EV on first dedicated EV underpinnings. But looks sleek!
