Future Brand Vision

Future Direction of Kia Motors

An unprecedented paradigm shift is forcing the auto industry to undergo a complete overhaul: century-old internal combustion engines are giving way to more eco-friendly and resource-conserving successors; automobiles are learning to drive themselves; and cars are now connected to networks, enabling them to serve as highly-advanced computers. Industrial terms like hybrid and electric cars, autonomous driving, connected cars, and car sharing have now become household words around the world.

Kia Motors wishes to bring the benefits of all these changes in automobiles to each and every customer, while ushering in a future in which opportunities for mobility and transportation are limitless. The company’s future mobility vision, “Boundless for All,” which was unveiled in January 2018 at the CES, encapsulates this commitment and will be driven by the company’s new ‘ACE’ strategy to make its cars more Autonomous, Connected and Eco/Electric. Plans have already been put into action with the launch of the mobility service brand WiBLE in 2017. Scheduled for introduction in 2018, the new Niro EV model will embody Kia’s ACE strategy and mark the next major step toward realizing our vision of creating the most eco-friendly, safe and convenient automobiles through innovation and progress.
