Kia EV4 captured in the wild showing off distinct rear end [Video]

Kia is launching its new low-cost EV4 next year. Ahead of its official debut, the Kia EV4 was captured out in the wild. Check out the unique back end in the new video below.

The EV4 is part of Kia’s new affordable electric car lineup introduced in October. It will follow the EV3, revealed earlier this year.

Kia opened EV3 orders in Korea last week with a starting price of $30,700 (KRW 42.08 million). After incentives, Kia expects EV3 prices to start at $29,200 (KRW 39.95 million).

The compact electric SUV features the style and tech of the larger EV9 but in a smaller, more affordable package.

Kia looks to sell 18,000 EV3 models by the end of the year in its home market. The EV3 will begin exporting to Europe next year and the US in 2025 (Kia may also build the EV3 in Mexico to qualify for the EV tax credit).

Following it up is the EV4, launching next year. Kia says the EV4 is its take on an entry-level electric sedan.

Kia even goes as far as calling it an “entirely new type of EV sedan” as the brand looks to make a bold statement in the electric era.

We caught a glimpse of the EV4 earlier this month, revealing several distinct design elements like its sleek silhouette and low nose (you can watch that video here).

However, a new video from the folks at ShortsCar gives us a closer look at the new EVs’ design, particularly the rear end.

As the video approaches the EV4, you can see the vehicle’s distinct rear end showing through. You will also notice the new vertical taillights peeping through and an added rear spoiler.

Kia says the EV4’s design is a symbol of its “determination to push boundaries and accelerate the EV Revolution.” Like the EV3, it’s expected to include Kia’s latest software and connectivity tech.

The EV4 is expected to include Kia’s new ccNC infotainment system with dual 12.3″ screens. Kia’s new EV will fill a key void in the market. It will be among the only compact electric sedans on the market, indirectly competing with Tesla’s Model 3 and Hyundai’s IONIQ 6.

Kia is expected to launch the EV4 next year, with starting prices of around $35,000. It will likely roll out domestically before launching in Europe and the US.

Meanwhile, BYD aims to take on Kia and Hyundai on their home turf with its $25,000 Seal EV.
