Kia's compact Niro EV concept will have a driving range of 383 kilometres
Last a year ago, Kia Motors posted global sales of 2,746,188 units, decreasing 7.8 per cent from 2016.
The styling changes are pretty noticeable and one of the biggest modifications is the elimination of a traditional grille which is no longer required for engine cooling. To counteract its quietness, speakers sound an alert to passengers who are crossing in front of the vehicle, while lights provide an additional warning.
The cabin has a minimalist and digital vibe to it, thanks to the dashboard's horizontal layout with broad surfaces and touchscreen displays, as well as a wraparound design that cocoons the driver and passengers. The model was born in Kia's design studio in Korea.
Since we're talking about a silent EV, Kia fitted it with new technologies meant to enhance safety for pedestrians.
Along with the concept vehicle reveal, Kia Motors also presented its "Boundless for all" vision, which paints a future with infinite transportation and mobility opportunities. A powerful 150-kW (204-hp) electric motor is fed by a high-capacity 64-kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, allowing the Niro EV Concept a driving range of 238 miles (383 kilometers).
Kia envisions owners using face recognition and voice control to 'log-in' to their cars in the future
The Niro EV concept is a nice follow-up to the Soul EV, which is rated at 111 miles of range.
Now dubbed a "concept", the auto showcases the brand's new electric vehicle technology and spearheads a charge by the Korean manufacturer to bring a whole range of electrified cars to the roads.
Following in the footsteps of other automakers, Kia is getting serious about highly automated vehicles early next decade.
On the self-driving front, Kia announced plans to begin Smart City autonomous vehicle testing in 2021. Designers also installed new headlights, a sportier front bumper, and a redesigned rear end with "clean and sharp trailing edges allowing air to flow more easily off the back of the vehicle".
Kia also wants to adopt connected auto technologies across every segment in its range by 2025.
Finally, Kia is showing off some other interesting technologies at CES, many of which will be demonstrated in interactive Niro EV concept interiors. This Agent allows owners to lock the auto, start the engine, or perform a host of other functions remotely via Google Assistant on their phones or Google Home devices.
