Recent footage captured a mysterious Kia undergoing testing, and it looks like it might be their affordable electric crossover we’ve all been waiting for.

There’s a bit of a twist, though. The video was originally labeled as showing the Kia EV2, but upon closer inspection, it seems like it might actually be something different – the upcoming Kia Clavis EV.

This new electric car comes on the heels of a bunch of exciting electric vehicle releases from Hyundai and Kia, including the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. In fact, Kia showcased a whole lineup of new electric car concepts last year at their big EV Day event in Seoul. To make electric cars accessible to everyone, no matter the budget. That’s where the EV3, EV4, and EV5 came into the picture, and it looks like this mystery car might be joining the party.

Kia is aiming to launch the EV2 for under $30,000, making it one of their most budget-friendly electric options ever. They’re especially looking to target markets in Europe and other places where people love smaller cars. So far, Kia hasn’t shown any official pictures or designs of the EV2, but a YouTube channel called Short Car claims to have spotted a disguised version testing on the streets of South Korea.

The video itself isn’t super revealing, but it does show one interesting detail – the driver’s seat is on the right side. This suggests Kia might be planning to release the EV2 in countries like the UK and India, where people drive on the left side of the road.

Kia’s Affordable Electric Mystery: The Plot Thickens!

So, about that Kia electric car everyone’s talking about – the EV2? There seems to be a bit of confusion! A YouTube channel spotted a disguised car testing in South Korea and thought it was the EV2. But upon closer inspection, it looks like it might actually be a different Kia electric car altogether – the Kia Clavis EV.

This whole mystery just adds to the intrigue surrounding the EV2. Kia has promised a super-affordable electric car priced at or under $30,000, potentially even replacing their recently launched Kia Ray EV (though that might be a few years down the road). The EV2 is specifically designed for markets where smaller cars are popular, like Europe and India.

Kia hasn’t officially revealed any details about the EV2’s design, final price, or exactly where it will be released. So, while the wait continues, one thing’s for sure: the EV2 has the potential to be a game-changer in the affordable electric car market. We’ll just have to wait and see what Kia has in store.
