Now, I’m guessing that most of us know that Kia is a global automobile manufacturer, in which the South Korean car maker exports cars to most continents in the world. And based on my personal experience with Kia, I can testify that their cars lack ‘quality’ in exchange for value for your money – that’s what you get for buying a cheap car! Surely, since electric vehicles have gained a strong foothold over the recent years, it seems that Kia is dead serious in getting into the EV game, simply by unveiling their Ray EV as their first mass produced electric vehicle.
Basically, the Kia Ray EV has a range of 86 miles and runs on the 16.4 kWh lithium-ion pack. It’ll take 6 hours to fully recharge the battery pack using a 220 volts charger, or alternatively, consumers can opt for a fast track charger that fully charges the battery in 25 minutes flat – at an undisclosed voltage. The Ray EV also clocks in at 15.9 seconds for 0-62MPH, which is pretty sluggish for its standards.
