The Korean automaker Kia is set to launch its next-generation car ‘Kia Seltos’ after making a huge impact with its magnificent car models on the Indian market. It was said that the new model is anticipated to gear up next year equipped with hybrid technology.

In 2023, the company stated that EVs (Electric Vehicles) would dominate the sale of hybrid models, later they construed that hybrid models would take over the EVs due to the slowdown and restrictions on fuel and they shifted their focus to hybrid vehicles as the sale of hybrid cars soared by 2.5 per cent.

They also found that the company will be safe from potential changes or any rules on diesel in the near future replacing the new models with hybrid cars. The new Seltos hybrid may stand as the first one of the 9 models as the company plans to launch 9 hybrid cars before 2028.

The reports said that the company offers a 25 kmpl mileage which is almost similar to other SUVs. The new vehicle has rated 140 bhp and 265 Nm power output paired to a 6-speed DCT gearbox.
