To Pro-cee'd or not to Pro-cee'd?
Kia Motors Corporation has revealed yet another preview image of the lineup that it will showcase at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. Earlier this month Kia revealed a Concept Coupe, this time it's the three-door Cee'd, named Pro-cee'd, that will make its World Premiere in Frankfurt on September 11, 2007. ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“Combining real style and genuine practicality, our new three-door ceeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d is sure to delight existing Kia customers and attract a new group of European consumers who have not yet considered our brand", said Mr Jean-Charles Lievens, Senior Vice President Kia Motors Europe. Lievens also said that the Pro-cee'd will be "longer, lower and lighter" than its five-door sibling and assuring that it "is going to be a great drive." The Pro-ceeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d will be "the third member of the Kia ceeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d family, joining the popular ceeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d five-door and the soon to be released ceeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢d SW models." Production of the Pro-Cee'd will begin in November at Kia's manufacturing plant in Slovakia, with the first customers receiving their "Proceeds" in the early months of 2008.
