“At Kia, we believe movement inspires ideas, and we are honored to be included on TIME’S list of the 100 Most Influential Companies of 2023,” said SeungKyu (Sean) Yoon, president & CEO, Kia North America and Kia America. “Kia’s brand purpose is to provide new products and meaningful services that inspire customers and free up time for the activities that they enjoy the most, and we will continue our efforts to establish an innovative and customer-centric business model.”

Kia has been growing trust in their brand due to the strength of award-winning vehicles such as the EV6, which recently won the 2023 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year and 2023 World Performance Car of the Year awards. Kia plans to build an EV lineup of 15 models globally by 2027, this includes the EV9 SUV that was recently revealed. Kia continues to implement new technologies and plans to apply connectivity features to all new models released after 2025, allowing customers to update and help enhance vehicle ownership experience through over the air (OTA) updates.
