  1. Which vehicles of other brands have this label already?

    Why does not the ioniq5 have it?? Or?

    Questions about questions to the press department of KIA or the publisher of the article &# 128521;
  2. What is such a label? If it is awarded to corporations, the continued 90% of their cars will manufacture as a combustion? The consumers are already confused with worthless, well-sounding labels. The whole thing is nothing but marketing gagging. This would like to suggest that you are environmentally conscious than others. In my eyes absolutely unsing.

  3. The first vehicle of a Korean brand has the KIA EV6

    This article is just about this vehicle 😉
    Fact is also:
    … that companies awarded a label or assessment and have to live by this award (deserve their maintenance) will be valued after payment.
    Nobody can independently evaluate as long as its livelihood depends on it.

    The past has shown that these label I.D.R. not even the paper would be worth what they would print. (Blue Angel, Marine Stewardship Council, Sentinel House etc …)

    It remains exciting
