Kia is working on advanced electric vehicles that will feature 800-volt systems.
Electrification technology is evolving at a dizzying pace. Not so long ago, apart from what was on offer at Tesla, people marveled at an electric vehicle offering 200 km of range.
Today, the threshold of respectability is 400 km between charges; the expectations regarding battery capacity, recharging time, power, and so on have similarly jumped.
Often, of course, advances in these domains are found first within the shells of more expensive and luxurious models. The new Porsche Taycan, for example, is currently the only production car with an 800-volt capacity. The production version of the Audi e-tron GT will deliver a similar figure. After that, the brand set to step on the third rung on the podium? Kia.
