Is an electric future in the cards for the Kia Stinger? This car with extraordinary qualities and much acclaim to its credit has yet to find a home among consumers, many of whom, as we know, have departed for SUV-land.
Its very future has even been questioned more than once in recent months, even though its arrival on the market is very recent (2018).
That's why electrification may be the way of the future. During an interview conducted by Top Gear with Kia's design director, Karim Habib, we learned that a mid-cycle refresh is planned for the model, but also how the company envisions its future.
In essence, Habib said he hopes that the spirit of the Stinger will be maintained throughout the evolution of the Kia brand, but also acknowledged that as “the technology goes toward EVs and as the world and its appetite for these types of cars changes, the concept probably has to evolve as well.”
