Hyundai and Kia have unveiled new electric cars designed exclusively for the Chinese market.

Hyundai's all-electric Lafesta debuted on Friday at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, which runs until Dec. 1. The sedan is expected to be launched sometime in the first half of 2020. Kia also unveiled an electric version of the all-new K3 sedan there.

Both cars will only be launched in China in an aggressive bid to win over customers in the biggest EV market in the world.  

The Lafesta EV can travel up to 490 km on a single charge. It comes with a GPS system showing nearby charging stations and is equipped with other features specially for drivers of electric vehicles.

Hyundai's 45 EV concept, first revealed last September, and a high-performance EV called Veloster N ETCR, were also displayed at the motor show.

"With the addition of Lafesta, Hyundais including the Sonata, Encino (known outside China as Kona) and Lingdong (Avante) now all have either an EV or a Hybrid version", said an executive at Hyundai. "We have plans to launch battery-powered cars in every segment to become one of the most eco-friendly carmakers", he added.
