Kia To Launch A New EV Halo Model In 2021

Kia is moving ahead with its plans for 11 EVS by 2025. This one will be the high-end halon car.

  • The car will be based on the 2019 Imagine Concept.
  • It will built on a Hyundai EV platform co-developed with Rimac.
  • This electric Kia will provide premium performance at a “mainstream” price.

And by high-end halo car, it’s clear that Kia does not want to go premium – that’s Genesis’ job in the Hyundai family. Kia hopes that this high-performance electric car will alter consumer’s view of the brand as the Kia Stinger did a few years ago. Performance is said to be impressive and most impressive of all, it’s on its way for 2021.

As we all know, a halo-car serves as showcase for a given brand’s capabilities. As Kia recently announced that they will be launching no fewer than 11 electric vehicles by 2025, the as-of-yet unnamed performance EV will draw attention from potential buyers and serve as a reason to shop for an electric Kia before long.

This car will provide up to 310 miles (500km) of electric range and in time, range is set to climb to 500 miles (800km). As for charging, it will be able to pull a 20%-80% charge in roughly 20 minutes through an 800V system with a 350kW charger, much like the Porsche Taycan.

Kia UK boss Paul Philpott, in a chat with Autocar.uk, said: “the 2021 EV has a crossover design which blurs the boundaries between passenger and sports utility vehicles.” So a four-door SUV it is.
