Kia's Coolest EV to Be Built By Hypercar Manufacturer

Automakers will join forces to design Kia's flagship electric vehicle, which will have an ideological character.

Kia has announced a new electric SUV that will become the company's technological and ideological flagship. It is assumed that we are talking about a model based on the Imagine Concept, which was a hybrid of a cross-coupe and sedan.

According to Autocar, Croatia-based Rimac will take part in the development of the new model, which is promised to have a very noticeable design, fast charging, impressive dynamics and drive range.

Rumor has it that a new platform is being developed specifically for the flagship, which will later become the base for a whole line-up of Kia EVs. The expected minimum range is about 500 km. The model will be equipped with an 800-volt onboard charging system, like that of the Porsche Taycan. It will allow recharging its battery pack from 20% to 80% in about 20 minutes using a high-speed charging station.

As stated in the company, the new electric SUV will soon be presented. The new model will be released in 2021.
