After GM stopped production of the Elan in 1992, Kia Motor licensed this car and the KIA Elan was built in 1996 and 1997 for the Korean market, using a 151 horsepower (113 kW) 1.8 L engine instead of the Isuzu made 1.6.

It was a copy of the Elan M100 car, that didn’t do too well, due to a bad recession in the USA, and high price of the car, with poor feedback of the front wheel lotus.
