Kia wins three environmental certificates

Kia's Vice President Marketing and Product Planning Europe, Benny Oeyen, left, shares the moment with Nils Jansen, sales manager at TÜV Nord.

The Kia Motors Corporation has been awarded three environmental certificates by TÜV Nord.

An independent technical inspection organization, it awarded the certification to the Korean automaker in recognition of the strong eco-credentials of its three newest models.

The low tailpipe emissions of the new Kia Picanto, Rio and Optima, and the advanced manufacturing processes used in their production, resulted in all three models being certified according to the ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).

The LCA inspection examines the environmental impact of both the car and its overall manufacturing process throughout the course of its lifetime, taking into account factors such as choice of materials, engine exhaust emissions and recycling.

All three of the Kia models accredited offer competitive running costs, and, in the case of the all-new Rio B-segment hatchback, the lowest CO2 output (from just 85 g/km) of any car currently on sale in Europe.
