Kia shared the date when it will turn into an electric car brand

After Hyundai, the rising star of the group, Kia, also shared the official dates for the farewell to fossil fuel cars.

Emission-free transportation strategies, which are currently on the agenda as part of the climate summit held in Glasgow, invite automakers to take faster steps to say goodbye to fossil fuel vehicles. In this context, South Korea-based Kia was included in the brands that announced their plans to end the production of gasoline and diesel powered vehicles in the last few years. According to the details shared at the preview of the EV9, which will be the flagship of the brand in the new generation, from 2035, the process of saying goodbye to traditional engines will officially begin for Kia, based in Europe.

Kia also included the carbon neutral target within the scope of the planning.

Announcing that it will include only electric models in its European product range from 2035, the brand will continue to work to expand its target to global markets after that date. If everything goes as planned, we will see Kia as a car brand that has reached its carbon neutral target by 2045. The fact that the carbon emission data of the South Korean manufacturer in 2045 will be 97 percent lower than in 2019 draws attention among the data. As in the Volvo example, the transformation steps to be taken in operations such as factory, supply chain and logistics, apart from Kia’s automobile models, are vital in achieving all these goals. Hyundai, another main member of the group, has also recently announced that it will end sales of petrol or diesel vehicles based in Europe from 2035.
