Kathmandu, December 6:

As early as December 2008, Kia Motors will add ‘eco’ versions of the Kia cee’d model to its product line-up. Based on greenperformance eco_cee’d concept car first shown at Frankfurt Motor Show last September, the new ‘eco’ versions of Kia cee’d will achieve better fuel consumption, with fewer emissions while still delivering a lively, spirited drive. Engines for ‘eco’ cee’d models will comply with the Euro5 emissions regulations, two years before they come into force in January 2011. “The rapid transfer of the green performance eco_cee’d concept’s features into production ‘eco’ versions of cee’d, demonstrates Kia’s vision for way ahead to a greener future,” enthuses Jean-Charles Lievens, senior vice-president Kia Motors Europe.
