Kia is planning to launch its first electric powered vehicle and the vehicle is set to be launched in 2014. No further details have been provided as of yet and the unnamed vehicle will be designed on the Soul.

However, if rumors are to be believed, the Kia Soul is set to be launched next summer at the Detroit Motor Show and the vehicle a proto type been spotted doing the rounds at a test track in UK.

Kia motor is looking forward to make some minor changes that will help the vehicle deliver its promises made to the British market. Kia motor is on a rise in Europe and in its attempt to make a mark in the British market, Kia has launched a hybrid petrol sedan, the Optima HEV.

The vehicle is based on the Mondeo and has been on sale in the Chinese and American market for the past one and a half years and seems to be doing well. However, there have been some modifications to the car’s drive train and the vehicle on sale in UK will displace 148 BHP with a 39 BHP displacing electric engine.

Kia is claiming Co2 emission figures of just 125 g/kg and the company is willing to provide customers with a seven year guarantee on the battery of the vehicle, except for external injury. The diesel variant of the vehicle is expensive to manufacture and import, however the hybrid version could easily be manufactured as it receives a lot of tax reductions.

Kia estimates the demand for hybrid vehicles to go up by the second quarter of 2013 and the company is preparing itself for the opportune moment. Kia along with its sister firm Hyundai has been targeting this boom for quite a while and the two companies alone sold close to 2.1 million hybrids in the European market in 2012.
