Upcoming Electric Kia CV: 311-Mile Range, 0-62 MPH In 3 Seconds

Replenishing 100 km (62 miles) of range will take just 4 minutes at an ultra-fast charger in optimum conditions.

Kia is in a process of transformation from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electrification and the core element of this is all-electric cars based on the new Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP platform.

Next month (March 2021), Kia intends to present its first E-GMP-based model (including details and performance specifications), known under the code-name “CV.”

This all-new, dedicated electric Kia model will be launched in July 2021. The Hyundai brand will launch its very own E-GMP-based electric car, the Ioniq 5.

While Hyundai’s EVs will be named under the Ioniq name scheme (Ioniq 5, Ioniq 6, Ioniq 7…), Kia announced that its electric cars will be named EV1∼EV9. We don’t know yet know the name of the first “CV” model.

According to Kia, “EVs built on E-GMP aim to set new benchmarks in All-Electric Range (AER), driving performance, interior space, and tech application.”

The Kia CV will have a range of more than 500 km (311 miles) in an undisclosed test cycle, ultra-fast charging capability (replenishing 100 km/62 miles of range in 4 minutes), and very strong acceleration: 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3 seconds.

Those are truly amazing stats.

Moreover, Kia lists also:

  • The EVs will function as smart devices with expanded application of Audio Video Navigation Telematics (AVNT), Over-the-Air (OTA) and Feature on Demand (FoD) services.
  • The first dedicated EV from Kia, codenamed CV, will be featured with HDA2 (Highway Driving Assist Level 2) technology. Starting in 2023, Kia EVs will be equipped with Highway Driving Pilot (HDP), a crucial autonomous driving Level 3 development.
