As part of its global activities in the development and promotion of fuel cell vehicles, Kia Motors has announced that it intends to join the Clean Energy Partnership in 2011. The agreement between Kia Motors and members of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) will help to promote Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) across Germany and to showcase the company’s competitiveness in eco-friendly vehicles.
