Heute mal ein interessanter Blick auf die Elektrostrategie von KIA.
Kia Motors just announced its mid- to long-term strategy „Plan S“ to „spearhead transition to EV, mobility solutions by 2025“, which will be supported by a 29 trillion won ($25 billion) investment.
Here we focus on the electrification strategy, which is quite substantial and includes:
11 EV models by 2025 (we assume plug-ins BEVs and PHEVs)
global annual sales target of 500,000 BEVs by 2026 (and 1 million eco-friendly vehicles, which include also HEVs/PHEVs) – numbers excluding China
6.6% of global EV market share for Kia brand by 2025
25% of Kia sales to be eco-friendly vehicles (HEVs/PHEVs/EVs/FCVs) by end of 2025
in some markets, like South Korea, North America and Europe, EV sales to stand for 20% of Kia sales by 2025
the first dedicated all-electric model on a new platform to be introduced in 2021
it will be a crossover type of car with more than 500 km (310 miles of range) in an undisclosed test cycle and DC fast charging time of less than 20-minutes (probably by 80% SOC).
