With the reveal of the all-new fourth-generation Kia Sportage comes word that there's a possibility that a plug-in version could be offered in the future.

The new Sportage will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but ahead of that reveal Kia has released some images.

Autocar reached out to Kia for comment on the new Sportage.  One question asked was the following:

What are the engine plans? Could there be a plug-in variant?

The response from Kia indicates that there's at least a chance that a plug-in version could be offered:

"Our R&D team have plans to launch 22 eco-variants in our range by 2022 – so you never say never, but there will be no plug-in at launch."

Fingers crossed...
