Kia landed a few good splashes at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. The world-famous Computer Electronic Show is the “global stage for innovation. ” The legendary event runs contrary to the phrase “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” because what happens at CES goes global very quickly and affects all of us.
Kia is taking a 360-degree view of the EV transition and is designing EV parts that can be used in the most versatile notion of mobility yet, announcing their PBV (Platform Beyond Vehicle) products.
While only concept vehicles now, which are built on their easy swap technology, Kia showed these models: PV1, PV5, and PV7. The PV5 may launch as early as 2025. Kia will use organic paint, recycled PET fabrics, felt, and yarns. Kia’s EV-9 SUV 2024 models with 3-row seating for up to 7 adults, are now available. Battery range is 270-304 miles
