With most automakers now trying to electrify their lineup, Kia is no exception either. The Korean automaker announces that their Kia Sportage and Kia Cee’d be the next models to get an electric upgrade.
According to Kia, the vehicle will be given a 48V mild-hybrid technology. Kia added that the mild-hybrid 48-volt technology is in demand in Europe right now and that is why they are working on that.

The third-gen Kia Cee’d also be released this year. The vehicle will be making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this March. Besides the new mild hybrid engine, the vehicle will also be offered with a few three and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engine.
