"As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers", said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center. The automaker says its green line-up will consist of a mixture of different electrified powertrains, from entirely battery-electric through hybrids and even a fuel-cell vehicle. But Kia says this Niro EV Concept showcases significant tech advances and a range of 238 miles - which would put it right up against the Chevrolet Bolt EV and better than a standard Tesla Model 3's range.

Penned by Kia's design studio in South Korea, the Niro EV Concept features an aerodynamically-efficient body that's said to allow air to slip over, around, and beneath the vehicle. The biggest change is at the front where the traditional grille has been replaced by a smooth interactive display panel.

A new Active Pedestrian Warning System (APWS) builds on the now-de-rigeur combination of front-facing cameras by throwing in object recognition software and speakers mounted at the front of the Niro EV Concept.
