New KIA EVs: here they are…
Kia just released these teaser pictures of their upcoming electric models. Names EV1 to EV9 (Is GM OK with that?)
The whole line up is on the top photo. Which includes commercial trucks as well.
The red pic shows the model we have seen many times testing around in multiple spy shots.
Which is Kia’s cousin of the Hyundai Ioniq5.
The green one does look a lot like a Soul. Maybe a next-generation EV version.
The yellow ones show a sporty sedan. Which, I guess, would be the equivalent of the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 6. Preview by a concept last year.
The bottom one is a large SUV.
Again, similar to the upcoming larger Ioniq SUV coming after the Ioniq 5 and 6.
Just like everyone else, Kia/Hyundai is betting on EVs in a big way.
By adding a whole parallel line up of all-new models. For a few years.
Until it all becomes electric…

Hyundai/Kia/Genesis are going to flat out kill it in the EV market. I can't wait to see all of these.
Maybe they're smart enough NOT to price it as much as the Electric Kona and Soul. Personally, it would be smart to kill both in the US as popularity will go to the nicer IONIQ class and KIA electric variants. And the entry price for the Genesis models also better be attractive to compete with Tesla, BMW's I Series and Mercedes electric models.
Sign me up. It seems every other manufacturer is mildly interested in putting out EV's. Seriously looking forward to Hyundai's "hold my beer" approach.
Strange, so a fourth gen soul EV so soon. We are still waiting for the 3rd Gen in the U.S.
So these are in addition to the current Soul EV, Kona EV and upcoming Niro EV? You'd think the Niro would be in this family photo too.
Love the original set coming out.
Urban car, 'sporty' car, 'classic' saloon, Family SUV.
Can't wait to drive my new KN Sorrento.
They have really thought about the needs of customers, rather than creating a car and persuading people to buy them. Think of the X6 or X4. They were made and then advertised as the 'thing' to have, a bit like fashion.
