My Kia Niro is Android or Apple carplay. The article is unclear, are they doing this to make Kia vehicles exclusively Apple? If so I won't be buying one next time.
The information is in the article:
Apple's funds will be used to build exclusive facilities for the production and development of Apple Car.
Apple is just subcontracting Kia to make them a car that they can sell. 3.6 billion would be nowhere near enough money to make all of Kia's fleet be Apple Carplay exclusive. Obviously the car itself will be an Apple Car and probably won't support Android Auto but it will not affect your Kia Niro. They are just building an Apple branded car, probably with some Apple developed self driving stuff and its own interface.
