Kia is stationing its latest concept EV3 and EV4 electric vehicles at the LA Auto Show and is launching all-new 2025 Sorento hybrid and plug-in hybrid SUVs that will hit dealerships next year.
The EV4 concept, meanwhile, is a sedan that you could totally mistake for an EV6 when looking at it from the front. The EV4 has a “cocoon-like” interior, but really, both concepts have cabins styled in sci-fi-minimalism, with a Tesla Cybertruck-looking steering wheel. Kia is experimenting with the materials in the EV3 and EV4 and is looking to try sustainable bioplastics, natural dyes, and recycled cotton.
Finally, Kia is showing off its newly redesigned Sorento midsize SUV that comes with a facelift and gets more boxy and angular shapes. Kia says the upright front hood and squared-off edges are inspired by the Telluride full-size SUV.
The inside of the Sorento is refreshed as well and has an available panoramic curved display that connects the two 12.3-inch cluster and infotainment screens (similar to the EV9). The refresh is coming first to the new 2024 Sorento gas engine model, and then Kia will make hybrid and plug-in hybrid 2025 model-year versions available “later next year.”
