KIA launches EV education events

Kia UK is planning a series of educational events about electric vehicles (EV), launching its ‘Discover EV with Kia’ nationwide.

The events enable anyone to get a personalised appointment with an EV expert at any one of the nationwide Kia dealerships.

The expert will guide consumers through the journey of transitioning to and living with an electric car, what to expect from driving one, understanding range, charge times and other elements.

Kia has produced a new online digital brochure comprehensively covering all electric vehicle topics including EV battery life, charging time, and charging in public, alongside the event.

The manufacturer currently has a range of EVs including the EV6, and its EV9 was named car of the year 2024. The next fully electric car to join the Kia line-up is the EV3. Starting with the EV6 in 2021, Kia’s global ‘Plan S’ business strategy was to launch 15 EVs globally by 2027, nine in the UK.

Sanka De Silva, Marketing Director at Kia UK said:

“We want to help inform and engage with people about electric cars and dispel EV myths. As with any car and powertrain, it is crucial to understand them to get the most from them.

“With some people nervous about EVs, we felt that the right thing to do would be to offer our expert advice so they can find out how easily an EV can fit in people’s lifestyles. From a complete beginner to the EV world to someone looking to buy their first EV, if you have questions about going electric, the Discover EV events offer the perfect opportunity to get answers.”

“Education is vital for customers to successfully transition to electric, and as a leader in electrification, we want to give something back to communities and help people understand EVs. There is no sales pitch here, it is simply our way of starting a conversation, and sharing information and knowledge.”
