Kia EV5

The EV5 is a fully electric medium SUV. Two versions of the EV5 will be produced; China production will use LFP batteries (either 64 kWh or 88 kWh), Korean production (set for 2025) will use NMC batteries (58 kWh or 81 kWh).

It has not yet been determined where NZ EV5s will be sourced from. If it is from Korea, then the estimated range will be lower than what is listed below.

While based on the successful E-GMP platform the EV5 will have 400v architecture (unlike the 800v Kia EV6).
