Kia ‘to demonstrate progress’ at Geneva

Car manufacturer Kia has announced that it will be unveiling three new vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show this year, which will show the progress it has made in recent times.

The automaker said that the new cars will also "give a clear vision of the near and maybe not too distant future".

Kia’s new C’eed SW, which goes on sale in the UK in the autumn, will be on display for the first time in its final, production-ready form at the motor show.

Also on exhibit will be the new Rio Hybrid, which the manufacturer describes as "a new vision for the future of clean motoring". This car utilises a 1.4-litre petrol engine, mated to a compact 12kW electric motor.

This car will represent one of the brand’s most ambitious research and development exercises when 4,000 models hit the road as part of the company’s ‘real world’ testing programme for energy efficient vehicles.

Finally, Kia will be unveiling a new concept car, which has been designed to illustrate the options that are currently open to the company’s European design and manufacturing bases.
