The next-gen Stinger is more than just an electric vehicle. The vehicle looks like a sports car, runs like a sports car. So what do we call an electric sports car??
Kia Stinger 2020 is one of the eleven electric cars that Kia has planned to be on-road before 2025. Kia’s head of design, Karim Habib had a lot to say about the upcoming vehicles.
Here’s more from Top Gear’s interview, where the asked Habib what’s next for the Stinger:
“I definitely hope that the spirit of the Stinger stays at the core of what Kia is as we change as a brand,” said Habib – previously Head of Design at both BMW and Infiniti.
“As the technology goes towards EVs and as the world and its appetite for these types of cars changes, the concept probably has to evolve as well.” Hmmm – that’s not so promising.
“But the sporty, affordable, beautiful sculpture – I really believe that’s something which needs to live on in the brand.”
Stinger was the beginning of the new, sportier, more aggressive Kia. We await the remaining vehicles of the lineup. Because Stinger just made the crowd curious, and now all eyes are on the front door of Kia, to see the next vehicle rollout.
