    Segment Transcript

    Kia America Director of Corporate Communications James Bell says while manufacturers are transitioning more and more to EVs, a family EV should be on your test drive list. Bell says most people drive 28 -30 miles a day and he explains what you should consider about an EV’s range. Bell: "Range is really tightly wound to the size of the battery. So when you put a larger battery on any vehicle of course it's going to give you more range of power, but the bigger the battery and the more battery you put it also adds the weight so then it decreases the efficiency. So we at Kia think we've found the right kind of balance there to have that 300 mile range, have a vehicle that's very athletic, very fun to drive and as we see in so many other things in life the technology is only going to get better. So again, 300 miles is a bit of the standard today which is more than efficient for most people's drive but that's only going to increase.” For more information on these and other vehicles, check out CarPro.com.
