Report: Kia may produce Provo Concept, new Soul also possible at New York

AutoCarUK reports that Kia has some plans up their sleeves for future models now that they had a chance to showcase their Provo Concept at this year’s Geneva Auto Show. At the launch of the Provo, AutoCarUK learned that Kia is interested in moving the Provo to the production table.

Kia of Europe’s CEO Michael Cole told the publication that the Provo SUV concept is on the table for production. However, the decisions lies on Kia’s choice of making either the Provo into a production model, or launching a large rear-wheel drive sedan based off the Kia GT Concept.

“Everyone now knows our five-year plan to replace our volume models. We now have Peter Schreyer [Kia’s design chief] looking at a halo sports car – he’s keen on a GT,” Cole told AutoCarUK, “But we’re also looking at a B-segment SUV through the Provo Concept, that’s the real intense sector of the market and we could do it off the Rio base so that’s what I could see in Europe.”

Cole also shared that the brand will be launching a new Soul, which may be revealed as early as the New York Auto Show, which occurs in less than two weeks.
