Following the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official announcement to bring forward the date from which only electric and hybrid vehicles can be sold, from 2040 to 2030, Kia Motors (UK) Limited is already in a great position to meet this target while also offering customers a varied range of useable, practical, efficient and stylish vehicles.
At Ken Brown Kia, we already offer a comprehensive and varied line-up of Kia electrified vehicles. These include the fully-electric and award-winning e-Niro and Soul EV, which each offer around 280-miles of range per charge, as well as plug-in hybrid versions of the Niro, XCeed, Ceed Sportswagon and soon-to-arrive seven-seat Sorento. Hybrids and mild-hybrids further round out the choice of vehicles on sale today and ensure we offer a versatile product portfolio to suit every need and at every budget.
Encouraging the uptake of plug-in vehicles, Kia has partnerships in place with charge point providers Pod Point and bp Chargemaster, which both offer preferential rates to customers for their home chargers. In addition, bp Chargemaster offers plug-in Kia customers who choose to buy the 7kW homecharger unit a free two-year subscription to Polar Plus, as well as reduced rates and access to the UK’s largest public charging network.
Supporting long range and hassle-free electric travel, the fast-growing IONITY network already spans Europe and the UK, offering customers the fastest rapid chargers in the region – designed for the future but available today.
Jason Parker, Dealer Principal at Ken Brown Kia, commented: “The next decade to 2030 will be an exciting and unprecedented transition for the world and one that Kia is prepared to support through models we already have on sale today. With our future plans already well underway, our customers can rest assured that we will always be able to offer them the most compelling products, with the industry’s most respected and reassuring warranty, coupled with the most competitive prices. Kia already has the electrified products needed to meet today’s demands and is prepared for the future. Stop wondering, start driving.”
