Kia EV5 Concept.
This is a bit of a surprise, although we all know Kia would soon offer a 5 seater electric SUV.
As expected, it looks a lot like a smaller EV9. But I think it actually looks even better. Even though it’s just a concept so far, it looks much better than the 2021 EV9 concept. The production EV9 ended up looking quite a bit nicer than the original concept, and this new smaller concept looks better than both already. I really think this has the potential to be a huge hit for Kia.
The EV6 has gotten quite expensive lately starting at over $48 000, although the base price now includes the larger battery. A cheaper EV5 starting at under $45 000 would make a lot of sense. The only problem I see is the EV5 competing with the EV6 and also Hyundai Ioniq 5. Unless it ends up much cheaper.

If they build it in Savannah and keep the battery components in NA, then it could qualify for incentives so that will help with affordability.
