The Sportage PHEV will attract people looking to make the move to electric while enjoying the practicality and presence of the new urban SUV. The PHEV model features Kia’s 1.6-litre T-GDI engine, a 66.9 kW permanent magnet traction electric motor and a 13.8 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack. Kia will also give a European public debut to the EV6, the embodiment of the new Kia brand. The high-tech BEV has been developed to remove the perceived barriers that prevent many from making the switch to electric by providing rapid charging times, access to an extensive charging network, impressively long-range, and segment-leading interior space. The EV6 will deliver the very best experience a BEV can offer, making ownership as convenient and accessible as running a petrol or diesel vehicle, and with reduced environmental impact. Visitors will be treated to an EV6 VR experience and the opportunity to sit in both the all-new Sportage PHEV and the new EV6.
