Kia Motors Corporation's Chinese joint venture, Dongfeng Yueda Kia Motors Co., Ltd (DYK), has revealed two new models at Auto China 2018. Taking centre stage at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, the all-new Kia YI PAO urban SÚV is designed and built exclusively for sale in China. The vehicle makes its debut alongside the new K5 Plug-in Hybrid*, which features an ultra-low emissions powertrain capable of impressive electric-only range.

'The YI PAO strengthens DYK's current SÚV line-up, alongside the Sportage adapted exclusively for sale in China. The Kia Telluride Concept shows a potential future entry into the world of the luxury SÚV,' said Nam Young So, Executive Vice President, CEO at DYK. 'The K5 Plug-in Hybrid also boasts an exclusive new powertrain, with greater zero-emissions range than any other Kia hybrid to date and will seek to lead the new energy vehicle market in China.'

Two new SÚVs strengthen Kia's SÚV line-up in China

'Designing YI PAO, the main goal was to come up with a young, dynamic, practical car rooted in Kia's DNA,' said Oleg Son, Head of Kia Design China. 'The vehicle is aimed at young-at-heart, optimistic customers, reflecting their active lifestyle. Crisp structural lines and a Targa-style C-pillar are key features that are designed to appeal to a young generation.'

The YI PAO introduces Kia's stylish and modern design to China's urban SÚV segment, with a sporty attitude and a contemporary SÚV body style. Designed and engineered to appeal to the needs of younger buyers, it merges practicality with technology. The vehicle blends a stylish exterior with numerous high-tech convenience and safety features.


The Kia YI PAO is set to go on-sale across China in the second half of 2018.

Strengthening DYK's presence in the compact SÚV segment, the Kia Sportage takes inspiration from the brand's global SÚV model line-up, with a design and features tailored to the Chinese market. Boasting an imposing on-road presence, the China-exclusive Sportage offers SÚV versatility in a sporty, dynamic package, with a design characterised by Kia's hallmark 'tiger-nose' grille, smooth surfaces, and straight, clean character lines.

New Plug-in Hybrid powertrain for Kia K5

Re-engineered exclusively for China, the new K5 saloon now offers buyers an ultra-low emissions plug-in hybrid powertrain. Making its Chinese premiere in Beijing, the K5 Plug-in Hybrid is powered by a lithium-polymer battery pack and a high-capacity 50 kW electric motor. Providing zero-emissions in electric-only mode, the innovative powertrain employs Kia's efficient 2.0-litre GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine, which generates 156 ps and 189 Nm. Coupled with the electric motor, the engine allows the car to operate in charge-sustaining mode once the battery is depleted.

The K5 Plug-in Hybrid is set to be produced in China from the second quarter of 2018.
