The plan for seven dedicated EVs expands on Kia’s previously announced Plan S strategy, which will result in it having 11 EVs (some as variants of existing models) on sale within the next five years.

“Kia has sold more than 100,000 BEVs worldwide since the introduction of our first mass-produced BEV in 2011, the Kia Ray EV,” said Kia president and CEO Ho Sung Song. “By refocusing our business on electrification, we're aiming for BEVs to account for 25% of our total worldwide sales by 2029.”

Most will be based off its new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), with claims of “best-in-class interior spaciousness” for each.

Charging infrastructure is also an area that Kia and the wider Hyundai Motor Group will invest in. In Europe, more than 2400 Kia-branded EV chargers will be installed at dealers, and there are plans to accelerate that in line with the market.

Default re: Kia to launch 7 new EVs by 2027

I remember KIA displaying electric cars in it's AP plant. Also they released an official statement saying that they have 3 electric cars in production pipeline about 2 years back. Are they planning to produce and sell them in India? There's no news about these vehicles later. I did not even find any mention about upcoming EV cars from Kia in KIA's plans for India thread.

One of the cars, which looks like a Sedan Kia Niro EV, it has 455 kms range advertised on it's bonnet.

Here is Kia Soul EV hatchback along with an ICE KIA Stinger.
