Featuring a form shaped by the brand’s unique design philosophy ‘Opposites United’, EV5 combines exceptional versatility and outstanding comfort with advanced technology, dynamic performance, and pioneering safety to deliver a harmoniously balanced vehicle.
The EV5 features an interior that completely reimagines the vehicle’s interior space. Drawing inspiration from the recently launched larger EV9 SUV, it offers an extensive interior space that is closer in concept and execution to a home ‘lounge’ than a traditional car cabin.
The standard model, equipped with a 64kWh battery pack and a 160kW motor, is expected to have a driving range of 530km per charge according to the China Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC). The long-range model, featuring an 88kWh battery and the same 160kW motor, aims to achieve a range of 720km per charge. The long-range AWD model will feature an 88kWh battery pack and a combined output of 230kW, with a front-wheel 160kW motor and a rear-wheel 70kW motor. With the AWD EV5, Kia is targeting a driving range of 650km based on the CLTC standards. Additionally, the model offers fast-charging capability, allowing the battery to be charged from 30 to 80 per cent capacity in just 27 minutes.
The EV5 will also be available as a ‘GT’, offering further performance features and engaging driving experience. More information regarding the EV5 GT trim will be revealed later.
