A report last year claimed that Kia would end production of the Kia Stinger in spring 2022, but that didn’t happen. Now a new report claims that Kia discontinue the Stinger in April 2023.
South Korea’s Auto Times is reporting that the Singer’s days are numbered, mainly due to weak demand. Through September, only 1,499 units were sold in South Korea, which makes it the slowest selling Kia there.
Kia hasn’t made any announcements about the Stinger’s future, but late last year, Kia design chief Karim Habib hinted that there wouldn’t be a second generation Stinger and that the EV6 GT would act as a replacement. We’re sad to see the Stinger go, since it is easiest one of the most fun models in Kia’s lineup, especially the GT version with its 3.3-liter V6 that generates 368 horsepower.
