Kia’s ‘EV5’ mass-produced public countdown… Breaking through the middle with cost-effectiveness

At the Chengdu Motor Show in China, which opens on the 25th, Kia will first introduce a mass-produced model of the next-generation dedicated electric vehicle ‘EV5 (project name OV )’. In China, some of the EV5 design and specifications are revealed before launch, raising 스포츠토토expectations for the new car.

According to the industry on the 16th, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology ( MIIT ) has previously released data containing the exterior appearance and some specifications of the EV5 mass-produced model through an affiliated organization . As a form approval process for the launch of a new car in the country, production is scheduled for November at the Yancheng plant in China after the release this month.

The EV5 is the third dedicated electric vehicle developed by Kia based on E-GMP, a platform exclusively for electric vehicles of the Hyundai Motor Group, following the EV6 and EV9 . The vehicle class is a semi-mid-sized sports utility vehicle ( SUV ), and has a similar size to the Kia Sportage. The EV5 body has a total length of 4615 mm, a width of 1875 mm, a height of 1715 mm, and a wheelbase distance of 2750 mm. Compared to the Sportage, the overall length is 45 mm shorter, but the overall width is 10 mm and the overall height is 55 mm longer.

Looking at the published photos, the EV5 mass-produced model embodies most of the design elements of the EV5 concept car previously introduced by Kia in March this year. The overall appearance is reminiscent of the EV9 . Like the EV9 , the front has a star map signature lamp inspired by constellations based on a digital tiger face, and a silver skid plate is placed at the bottom of the bumper.

On the side, the dynamic box-shaped silhouette and the technically designed wheel arches harmonize to emphasize individuality. It is also equipped with a buried door designed for aerodynamics and a 21-inch diamond cutting wheel. The rear tail lamp also applied Kia’s latest design trend, ‘U’ shape.

Some specifications have also been revealed. The EV5 is equipped with a 160kW electric motor and produces a maximum output of 217 horsepower and a maximum torque of 31.6 kg m . The suspension is MacPherson on the front and multi-link on the rear. Battery capacity, mileage, price, etc. have not yet been announced, but the industry expects to respond to Tesla Model Y by increasing cost-effectiveness (price-performance ratio).

Local media in China said, “ EV5 is equipped with BYD ’s lithium iron phosphate ( LFP ) battery and aims for a driving distance of more than 500km on a single charge.” We will compete,” he said.

Kia initially developed the EV5 as a strategic model in China, but it is known that it is also considering introducing it to global markets, including Korea, to expand electric vehicle sales . However, there is a high possibility that it will be launched with nickel, cobalt, manganese ( NCM ) batteries for domestic sales .

Previously, Kia CEO Song Ho-seong said in March that “ the EV5 is getting a good response in the Chinese market” and that “ there are plans to launch the EV5 in Korea as well.”
