Earlier, the team announced that they will launch at least 26 vehicles by the end of this decade. Now, they added that there will be two more vehicles to join the line. Kia is going to come up with an electric soul hatchback with 93 mile range when fully charged. Optima hybrid sedan is also in the cards which the brand has planned to revamp to suit the modern generation. A Niro hybrid car is in the charts but one or more of these models may not make it to the stores.

While Hyundai is planning its own strategy, Volkswagen announced that they are going to constructed a Giga factory as done by Tesla. Every last company is inspired by the electric automaker Tesla without doubts because they are copying their every move. But, it obviously leads to better results.
