Like the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 5, the new Kia CV will be underpinned by the Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Globular Modular Platform (E-GMP). In fact, it will be the first Kia to utilize the dedicated EV platform, whereas prior vehicles like the Soul EV were based on cars with conventional platforms and internal combustion engines. Along with allowing for fast charging times and high-performance EV models, E-GMP will also enable two-way charging. This setup can, for instance, enable one EV to charge another or power devices like a 55-inch TV for up to a full day. In total, Kia aims to bring seven new battery-electric vehicles to the market by 2027, so the CV is just the beginning.
