Upcoming Kia Cars in India
Kia Carnival 2021
The Koreans called the updated Minivan, the Grand Utility Vehicle (GUV). This term alludes to the “Off-Road” Properties grafted into the model. In fact, the” fourth ” Kia Carnival 2021 has largely become like a crossover. It has a distinct nose area with a hood separated from the windshield frame, a black plastic body kit around the body circumference, and large wheel arches for large diameter Windows (18 to 19 inches).
Among the design features, the original Front-end Design should be noted. The head optics here closely adjoin the Chrome-sprinkled radiator grille, while the headlights themselves have complicated bends of the navigation lights and separate high-beam sections.
The model can have three or four rows of seats that can accommodate 7, 9, or 11 riders. A 7-seater configuration is provided for extensive configurations.
The new Kia Carnival 2021 is based on the same platform as the latest Sorento. In Korea, the engine range of a minivan consists of two units: a V6 3.5 GDI (294 HP, 355 Nm) with gasoline intake and a Turbodiesel D 2.2 (202 hp, 441 Nm). Both engines work in conjunction with an 8-speed “automatic”.
The fourth generation of the Sorento launched on 10 October in Korea with a hybrid version and a Diesel.
The Plug-in drive is based on a 1.6-Liter turbo gasoline engine (1.6 T-GDI) with 180 hp and 265 Newton meters of torque. In addition, there is a 67 kW (91 hp) electric motor with 304 Nm. The total power is 265 hp, the system torque 350 Nm. Power transmission is provided by a six-speed automatic transmission.
The battery works with Lithium-ion Polymer technology and has water cooling. The 13.8 kWh provide an electric range of 64 kilometers to NEDC or 54 kilometers to WLTP. Charging is via a type 2 charging port with 3.3 kW alternating current. Then the battery should be full again in just under three and a half hours.
The navigation system with a 10.25-inch Display provides real-time congestion information, weather forecasts, parking information, as well as indications of nearby charging stations, along with compatibility and availability.

At Kia, pioneering clean drive technologies, whether as a Hybrid or pure electric Model, play a central role in model development. The Kia Seltos EV is a superb all-electric vehicle.
