Kia is close to revealing an electric SUV with rugged looks and third-row seats. The vehicle is the production version of the EV9 concept unveiled at the 2021 Los Angeles auto show, and new teaser videos suggest it will be similar in design to the striking show car.
Another vehicle due to be revealed soon is the redesigned Mini Countryman, which will offer buyers the choice of gas or electric powertrains. Mini has confirmed the new Countryman will enter production late this year at a plant in Leipzig, Germany, which will make the subcompact crossover the first Mini to be built in the country.
A redesigned Maserati GranTurismo goes on sale this spring. Eventually, the new coupe will be joined by its convertible counterpart, and like the coupe the convertible will also offer the choice of gas or electric powertrains. A prototype for the convertible in EV guise has just been spotted.
