A table has been leaked to the network showing the start dates for some of the new Ki models until 2022… The information was published by The Keea portal.
- The first in 2019 will be the production Optim sedan of the new generation. This will happen in August. The four-door will be based on a new platform that debuted on the new Hyundai Sonata. For the first time, the model will receive an all-wheel drive transmission.
- In September 2019, Ki will begin production of a hybrid modification of the Ceed station wagon, and assembly of the Xceed crossover in versions with front and all-wheel drive will begin in October.
At the very beginning of 2020, a mysterious hydrogen sedan will enter the assembly line of the Korean company. It is stated that it will be large, while receiving front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. In August 2020, Ki will launch the fourth-generation Sorento crossover, and in December, a mid-size electric sedan, which in the top version will receive one electric motor on each axle.
- There are no plans for 2021 in the table, and in 2022 it is expected to start production of a new generation Sedon minivan and a mid-size pickup (competitor to Ford Ranger and Volkswagen Amarok) with rear-wheel drive in the base and optional all-wheel drive transmission.
