Kia could be producing production versions of the the GT Concept (shown at 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show) and the Provo Concept (2013 Geneva Motor Show).
Auto Express talked Kia Motors Europe’s VP of Marketing and Product Planning, Benny Oeyen. Oeyen said the they're looking at producing a coupe version of the GT Concept.
“The GT is close to being approved and going into production, but, as with all our cars, they have to be developed on a sound financial footing,” said Oeyen.
As for the Provo, Oeyen said the company is very keen on producing a production model. The model would be based on the same platform as the Rio and become Kia's halo model for small cars.
“The provo is a possible niche we can venture into. Our brand is currently rational, but there’s space for a B-Coupe. We will now do some market research to see if people would buy it – it has to make financial sense,” said Oeyen.
