Is the Kia Seltos Available as an Electric?

Electric Kia Seltos Rumors and Predictions 

At Friendly Kia we just can’t get enough of the 2021 Kia Seltos and now with rumors spinning about an electric model we can’t help but share the news.  

The Seltos has only just joined the Kia lineup a few months ago, appealing to drivers everywhere thanks to its subcompact size, adventure-set performance, and in-demand technology. The current Seltos offers two engine options in its mix and now there are rumors circulating about an electric Kia Seltos coming up on the horizon.  

Find out what we think of the rumors and predictions for an electric Kia Seltos below!

Electric Seltos Is On the Horizon 

According to documents obtained by Indian Autos Blog, the auto market in China is set to see an electric Seltos model in the second half of 2020. Due to the overwhelming success of the 2021 Seltos, the announcement of an electric Seltos model doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The downside to these rumors, however, is the documents show the Seltos EV is currently only set for a release in China.  

Will the U.S. Get an Electric Kia Seltos?

The blog’s documents show only what is set to come to Korea, Europe, China, India, and the U.S. during 2020. Based on the information given it is safe to say that an electric Seltos won’t be joining the U.S. market anytime during 2020, but we at Friendly Kia are making a confident prediction that an electric variant of the fan-favorite Seltos will make its way to the U.S. sometime next year.  

Given the popularity of the Seltos in the U.S. and the continued demand for electric variants, keeping an electric Seltos model out of the U.S. market would come as more of a surprise than the arrival of one.  

While we are hopeful that an electric Seltos is on the horizon for the United States, we will have to wait and see until official information is released on this electrified model.
