Great scot! Kia scoops three at annual scottish car of the year awards

POSTED: 01/12/2022



Once again, Kia UK Limited has found great success at the annual Scottish Car of the Year (SCOTY) Awards, collecting a trinity of awards for the all-new Sportage and EV6.

Voted for by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW), the SCOTY Awards celebrate the best of the automotive industry and recognise the stand-out models of the year. Kia has had previous success at the awards, winning with both ProCeed and Sportage in 2019.

The all-new Sportage collected the awards for ‘Family SUV of the Year’ and ‘Best Full Hybrid’, impressing the ASMW as a standout model in the heavily populated SUV market. Launched at the start of 2022, the all-new Sportage is available with a range of electrified powertrains and has already become Kia’s best-selling model in the UK year-to-date.

ASMW President Jack McKeown said: “The family SUV sector is hugely crowded but the Kia Sportage manages to stand out from the pack. Dynamic looks, plenty of space and a great range of powertrain options are among its many strengths.”

“The attributes that made the Kia Sportage our Family SUV of the Year helped it win our Full Hybrid award. The Sportage’s self-charging hybrid system seamlessly switches between battery and petrol power – and runs in electric mode a surprising amount of the time.”

As well as the all-new Sportage, the EV6 continued to add to its impressive resumé of honours, winning the SCOTY award for ‘Best EV over £40,000’. McKeown commented: “Stunning looks, superb range, super-fast charging, outstanding practicality and – in the fastest versions – astonishing acceleration are among the many reasons the Kia EV6 was a runaway winner. Kia’s flagship electric car really is something special.”

Already a European Car of the Year winner, EV6 continues to impress in the UK and further transform perceptions of Kia as a high-technology, sustainable mobility provider. With a range of up to 328-miles on a single charge, the EV6 has cemented itself among the most important models for Kia UK, as the brand’s first dedicated electric vehicle.
