Most design attributes from EV5 concept make it to production model.

As per leaked homologation documents, Kia EV5 is 4615 mm long, 1875 mm wide, 1715 mm tall, and has a 2750 mm wheelbase. Kerb weight is listed as 1870 kg. There seems to be a single motor layout.

There may be two versions of Kia EV5, one for China with an LFP battery produced by Xiangyang Fudi Battery Co., Ltd. (also known as FinDreams), a wholly-owned subsidiary of BYD. The global version may reportedly feature an 82 kWh NMC battery pack with a claimed range of up to 600 km.
Same design language as flagship EV9
The recently unveiled Kia EV5 shares the same design language as the company’s flagship electric SUV, the EV9. Some of these design elements are also incorporated in Kia’s smaller EV4. The SUV’s stance and proportions lend it a rugged appearance. Front fascia is futuristic yet minimalistic in appearance. 3D LED DRLs with ‘Signature Star Map Lighting’ add a sophisticated touch.
Side profile features strong lines and funky aero wheels, and the rear takes design cues from EV6. Kia offers a choice of nine glossy colours with EV5 and one Matte Ivory Silver. The nine glossy ones are Magma Red, Starry Night Black, Ivory Silver, Clear White, Snow White Pearl, Iceberg Green, Tide Blue, Frost Blue and Shale Grey.
Upholstery options for the base model include two woven fabrics and synthetic leather. Interiors have four color options and five seat pattern options. Inside, there is 64-color ambient lighting that includes features such as high-speed warning. Launch will take place next year. If launched in India, it could be priced in the Rs 40-50 lakh price bracket.
