How Kia is Committing to Sustainability & the Environment
Kia has already implemented new branding as the company transitions to a greener future. Kia’s fresh strategy introduces more eco-friendly production methods and collaborative partnerships worldwide. Its first dedicated battery electric vehicle, the Kia EV6, will be available in Canada in early 2022.
New Design Philosophy
Kia is embracing a new design philosophy starting with the EV6 and continuing on all upcoming future models. The philosophy is based on five key design pillars: “Bold for Nature”, “Joy for Reason”, “Power to Progress”, “Technology for Life” and “Tension for Serenity”. The EV6 is a culmination of skills and expertise collected throughout Kia’s history, and empowers the brand moving forward.
Electric & Hybrid Lineup Expansion
Kia currently offers the Soul EV and Niro EV, both with more than 380 kilometres of all-electric range. Kia will also be introducing an additional seven plug-in hybrid or dedicated electric models by 2025. Along with creating battery-powered and hybrid vehicles, Kia is pursuing other eco-friendly modes of transportation and implementing sustainable production methods.
Electric Vehicle Education Facilities
Kia has recently opened its first-ever EV Experience Centre (EVEC) in Vancouver, where it serves to educate customers on the benefits of electric vehicles and future of transportation. Through the EVEC, the team at Kia also helps educate drivers on how to transition from their current gas-powered vehicle to a plug-in or pure electric vehicle that best suits their lifestyle.
