Kia Revs Up Electric Push with Global Reveal of EV5

Kia isn’t hitting the brakes on electric vehicles! Fresh off the sporty EV6 and three-row EV9 SUVs, Kia has unveiled the global version of the EV5. This new electric crossover is expected to hit US shores as a 2025 model.

Sizing Up the EV5

Imagine a sweet spot between the compact Kia Sportage and the midsize Kia Sorento. That’s where the EV5 is likely to land size-wise. Expect it to showcase Kia’s latest electric vehicle tech, with a focus on performance, range, and charging.

Power, Speed, and Juice

Kia is keeping details under wraps for now, but we expect a variety of powertrain options. A rear-wheel-drive setup with a single motor might be standard, with an all-wheel-drive dual-motor system a strong possibility.

Battery options are also likely to vary, with a smaller pack for affordability and a larger one for more power and range. Speaking of range, estimates suggest somewhere between 230 and potentially over 300 miles on a single charge. And like its cousin the EV6, the EV5 should be able to recharge impressively fast.

High-Tech Interior with a Twist

The concept EV5 had some wild features, like fancy doors, a unique steering wheel, and even a tiny plant garden! The global production model is more toned down, but it still boasts a high-tech interior.

Think big screens dominating the dashboard instead of a button overload. Plus, the EV5 appears to have a padded area between the front seats, hinting at a possible bench seat in the back. There’s also a unique cargo floor hinge that folds up to create a tall shelf.

Look for the Kia EV5 to arrive in US showrooms sometime in 2025. Pricing should be similar to the EV6, which starts just over $50,000 and tops out around $63,000. So, stay tuned for more details on this exciting new electric offering from Kia.
