Kia Wins low Carbon Award

Kia Wins low Carbon Award Image

Kia's environmentally efficient range of vehicles has seen it scoop the Ultra Low Carbon Award from What Car?.  The magazine spared particular praise for the new Rio, which has carbon emissions of as little as 85g per kilometre, making it by far the cleanest non-electric vehicle in the entire world. 

This environmental warrior is a complement to the brand new Kia Picanto, which was honoured last summer at the same publication's Green Awards.  The machines also have other virtues as well, with pleasingly composed handling, surprisingly sharp looks and reasonable specifications all backed up with a Car Warranty lasting no less than seven years in total. 

"Kia has been striving over recent years not only to deliver exciting, attractive, high quality cars - but also to deliver real benefits to customers in the form of cleaner technologies that don't carry a price premium" according to Kia Motors Europe's Chief Operating Officer, Paul Philpott.  "We are delighted that What Car? - one of Europe's leading consumer magazines - has recognised our efforts."

The manufacturer continues, however, to lack mass recognition with British motorists even despite its undeniable green credentials.  This is despite the brand new Kia Picanto rivalling the likes of the popular Ford Ka, the Venga being a compact MPV that faces down the capable Nissan Note and other highlights in the range such as the likes of the Vauxhall Astra class workforce that is the Cee'd, the large four-wheel drive Sorento and the seven-seater people carrier Sedona.
