Kia has revealed its intentions to introduce its first all-electric saloon with the unveiling of the EV4 Concept. The production-ready version of the EV4 is slated to grace the roads by 2025.


When it arrives on sale, it will compete with the facelifted Tesla Model 3, the BMW i4 and Polestar 2.  


Although the current presentation is a conceptual one, the production variant of the EV4 is expected to closely resemble it, following a precedent set by the EV9 and EV5 concepts. 


Despite being a four-door saloon, its design looks to adopt a coupe-like design with its sloping roofline, joined by a subtle roof-mounted spoiler. Up front can be found thin LED lights positioned at the outer edges, and the wheels feature a triangular-shaped design.  


With a focus on space, inside ditches a central console to separate the front occupants' footwells. There’s also a large, dual screen setup which is split evenly as a digital instrument cluster and infotainment display. 


Like Kia's pre-existing electric cars, the EV4 is expected to adopt the firm’s E-GMP architecture. There’s no mention of battery capacity and range, though the similarly sized 

Hyundai Ioniq 6, which also uses the E-GMP platform, uses a  77.4kWh battery for a range of 338 miles.
