Automobile Industry has faced the brunt of challenging circumstances ranging from slowing economy to Coronavirus epidemic. Covid 19 has especially hurt the automotive industry with delay in launches, unveilings and for that matter the cancellation of Geneva Motor Show being the big news of 2020. Geneva Autoshow cancellation impacted automakers like Kia who had to abandon the Sorento launch. As a result, 2021 Kia Sorento was revealed to the world via a Facebook Livestream event held on the 19th of March. The biggest news coming out of new Sorento is that it will now come equipped with an electric motor alongside a 1.6 litre petrol unit.
