A Kia EV4 SUV is Expected to Arrive in 2024

Using styling cues and technology from the EV6, the Kia EV4 will be a compelling small electric SUV


  • As the name indicates, it will slot below the EV6.

  • It will be assembled on the Hyundai Group’s E-GMP platform.


Kia and Hyundai Motor Group are taking no prisoners in the war to launch as many EVs as possible. Kia plans to reveal 14 new EVs by 2024 and the EV4 should be one of them.

The small electric SUV segment has massive potential globally. The EV4’s competition will stretch from the Nissan Ariya and Volkswagen ID.4 to the Volvo XC40 Recharge and Mercedes-Benz EQA/EQB.

While there’s little to no information available on the EV4, carbuyer expects that it will be assembled on the Hyundai Group’s E-GMP platform exactly like the EV6, IONIQ 5, and Genesis GV60. This leads all to believe that the EV4 will be fitted with either the 58-kWh or the 77.4-kWh battery. With the latter and a dual-motor configuration, it should prove to be quite rapid. And, not to mention, provide a serious range in excess of the EV6 LR AWD’s 440 km.

Other niceties should include similar or identical curved dual 12.3-inch displays and plenty of onboard technology. Sustainably-sourced materials will likely be found throughout the cabin as well.

The source story says the Kia EV4 is due to arrive in 2024. This means we should find out more about the model before the year’s end including whether or not we can expect it in North America.
