Kia’s first dedicated BEV

"The ideas of our designers and the goal of the brand are more connected than ever, with our customers at the center of what we do". Consumers are increasingly seeking out flexible, environmentally conscious, and integrated forms of transportation. The slogan, therefore, is also the company's stated mission - to inspire customers through its products and services, as well as their experiences with the brand.

The company is transitioning from its traditional manufacturing-driven business model, turning its focus to offering a variety of mobility products and solutions.

Plan S is now building momentum to switch to a greater proportion of renewable energy in manufacturing processes shrinking Kia's carbon tyre-print, while exploring, developing and implementing the use of more recycled (and recyclable) materials in the construction of its cars.

The statement released by the company claims that the company will introduce the first out of the seven electric cars as early as this quarter. The upcoming models will be underpinned by the newly unveiled Hyundai Motor Group's Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). These specialised vehicles will be based on flexible "skateboard" platforms, with modular bodies created to meet the specific mobility needs of a broad range of corporate and fleet customers. Bespoke modular bodies will offer corporate customers highly specialised vehicles for a range of applications.

The change in the company's corporate name also means transforming the organization's working culture.

USA election: Trump to leave Washington before Biden's inauguration
Trump, the only president in USA history to be impeached twice, is planning to issue more pardons before leaving. Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.

"Changing our corporate name and logo is not only a cosmetic improvement".

"It represents us expanding our horizons and establishing new and emerging businesses that meet and exceed the diverse needs of our customers worldwide".

The Korean carmaker is also developing eco-friendly mobility services under 'Plan S.' It is ramping up its collaboration with global mobility solutions businesses and establishing other similar services as well.

The range of EVs will be bolstered by investment in more "eco-friendly mobility solutions" with a wide range of businesses and start-ups already on the Kia cards, including ride-sharing, ride-hailing, peer-to-peer auto sharing, food delivery and payment systems. Launched in 2018, the service operates 500 Kia Niro PHEVs and has 1,30,000 members registered. KiaMobility is to be introduced to several new markets in the years ahead. Kia will adopt a simple naming scheme for its electric vehicles, EV1 through EV9. One new vehicle, which will be the first global model to bear Kia's new logo, will offer an electric driving range of over 500 kilometers and a high-speed charging time of under 20 minutes, Kia said.
