A smaller, cheaper electric SUV based on Kia’s flagship EV9 is due out next year. Ahead of its launch, the Kia EV3 was spotted testing in South Korea, giving us a good look at the new EV’s actual size.
Kia introduced the EV3 concept last week at the 2023 LA Auto Show. This is the first time the model has been unveiled in the North American Market.
The EV3 was first shown in October at the Kia’s annual EV day. Kia’s new EV3 is a compact crossover offering the tech, practicality, and design of the EV9. The EV3’s pushed-forward windshield, sloping roofline, and disconnected C Pillar create a shrunken EV9-looking crossover.
The front features a new EV Tiger Face based on Kia’s new “Opposites United” design theme. Its signature star map lightning and vertical LED headlamps add to the vehicle’s strong, futuristic look.
