Kia has announced that the third generation of their compact vehicle model Ceed will also be electrified but only partially so. In the coming year, the company plans to introduce a mild hybrid version of the car before adding a plug to the hybrid eventually.

Kia will add a 48-volt mild hybrid Ceed next year to the compact cars fossil fuelled engine lineup, the automaker’s CEO for Europe, Michael Cole told Auto News Europe.

The Koreans are also considering a plug-in hybrid Ceed but Kia has no plans for an all-electric version.

Kia will launch the Ceed officially at the Geneva Motor Show this March.
