Kia UK is launching a series of nationwide ‘Discover EV with Kia’ events, offering personalised appointments with an electric vehicle expert at any Kia dealership.

Customers will be taken on the journey of transitioning to and living with an electric car including what to expect from driving one, understanding range, charge times ore.

Online bookings can be made via the dedicated webpage with customers able to book a slot between 1 May until 30 June at their local Kia dealership: 

Sanka De Silva, marketing director at Kia UK said: “We want to help inform and engage with people about electric cars and dispel EV myths. As with any car and powertrain, it is crucial to understand them to get the most from them.

“With some people nervous about EVs, we felt that the right thing to do would be to offer our expert advice so they can find out how easily an EV can fit in people’s lifestyles. From a complete beginner to the EV world to someone looking to buy their first EV, if you have questions about going electric, the Discover EV events offer the perfect opportunity to get answers.”

Kia has published a new online digital brochure comprehensively covering all electric vehicle topics including EV battery life, charging time, and charging in public.

De Silva continued: “Education is vital for customers to successfully transition to electric, and as a leader in electrification, we want to give something back to communities and help people understand EVs. There is no sales pitch here, it is simply our way of starting a conversation, and sharing information and knowledge.”

Kia’s range of fully electric cars includes the EV9, EV6, Niro EV and Soul EV. The next fully electric car to join the Kia line-up is the EV3.

Kia’s global ‘Plan S’ business strategy will see the carmaker launch 15 EVs globally by 2027 including nine in the UK.
